British seek international replica gun controls
I'm starting to get the feeling that the English Bulldog that is used as a symbol for Britain should be replaced by a neutered chihuahua. The way they are getting their knickers in a bunch about everything these days is pathetic.

In the UK where burglars serve no prison time at all, look at the latest police initiative.
Guns, swords, knives, toys, ... . Will two sticks be next?
What a foolish question. Two sticks are already forbidden if connected with a bit of shoelace.
Next up, perhaps the rock that Cain used to kill Able? How about a bar of soap tied in a long sock?

Obviously britain's crime problem is the direct result of toy guns, imported from across Europe.
As the saying goes, "If you take toy guns from the kids and the law-abiding only the crims will have toy guns." And apparently they have little if any trouble getting them.

Makes perfect sense to me. I'd be worried about toy guns too if I were the government of a toy nation. That faint low-frequency hum you hear is Sir Winston turning over in his grave.

Funny how none of this was happening before the government confiscated all handguns from law-abiding citizens, and then topped it off by making self defense illegal, and then topped that off by abolishing jail for criminals.

And at the bottom of the page, a link to Jeremy Clarkson's latest column of wisdom:
"Binge Drinking Is Good For You."
You have to love the British, bless their hearts. It's hard to believe that place produced Michael Bisping and Ross Pointon sometimes.
