    [B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B]It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/B]
    [B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B]This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to those who had a license.
    The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only handguns but all firearms except shotguns..[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial]
    [/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B]Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B]
    Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the Hungerford mass shooting in 1987.Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets shooting everyone he saw[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B][B]
    When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead[/B][/B][B][B]
    The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of "gun control", demanded even tougher restrictions.
    (The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even though Ryan used a rifle.)[/B][/B][B][B]
    Nine years later, at Dunblane , Scotland ,
    Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public school.[/B][/B][B][B]
    For many years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally unstable, or worse, criminals.
    Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding gun owners.
    Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns.[/B][/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR]
    [B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B]The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later, sealed the fate of the few sidearms still owned by private citizens.[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B][B]
    During the years in which the British government incrementally took away most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.
    Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were threatened,[/B][/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][B][U][FONT=arial]claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a gun.[/FONT][/U][/B][B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B]
    Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while the real criminals were released.[/B][/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/B][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial][COLOR=black][FONT=arial][B][B]
    Indeed, after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as saying, "We cannot have people take the law into their own hands."[/B][/B][B][B]
    All of Martin's neighbors had been robbed numerous times,
    and several elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs who had no fear of the consequences.
    Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his collection trashed or stolen by burglars.[/B][/B][B][B]
    When the Dunblane Inquiry ended, citizens who owned handguns were given three months to turn them over to local authorities.[/B][/B][B][B]
    Being good British subjects, most people obeyed the law.
    The few who didn't were visited by police and threatened with ten-year prison sentences if they didn't comply.[/B][/B][B][B]
    Police later bragged that they'd taken nearly 200,000 handguns from private citizens.[/B][/B][B][B]
    How did the authorities know who had handguns?
    The guns had been registered and licensed.

    The only words that sum this up were said by Patrick Henery.
    :mad:

    I remember well when they cowered down and turned in their guns. They sent many to dealers over here. I bought some of them. Pretty much disgusted me at the time that they did not stand up and fight back.
    But it definitely added one more tier to why we broke from England in 1776.
    And it definitely explains why they lost.

    I left a body double back on Planet Elvis so that I could be a member of the body politic here, on earth, in the USA, in this decade.
    America is on the cusp of it's third incarnation; it will rise to enlighten the planet, elevating it's PPLs to greatness never before imagined or fall into a pit of darkness that will last 3000 years
    Just thought you should know
