Hand guns should be legalised and licensed, Nigel Farage has said... The Ukip leader says the ban on the guns, which were made illegal in the wake of the Dunblane shooting, was a "kneejerk" reaction and should be lifted. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/pol...lised-and-licensed-Nigel-Farage-has-said.html Of course, Farage is being painted as a lunatic by those now in charge, but their own words prove his point: Peter Squires, professor of criminology at Brighton University and a member of Association of Police Officer’s advisory group on the criminal use of fire arms said that Mr Farage’s comments were "irresponsible". He said: "If public safety is a consideration then it’s a particularly stupid thing to say. It opens up the problem that we have almost dealt with successfully." Almost? "...the problem with hand guns is that they are small and concealable and they are already the weapon of choice of gangs members and criminals.” That being the case? Who is it that has been disarmed? The UK has a higher overall violent crime rate than the US.
