I'm never sure when listening to the anti-guns mouth pieces whether they believe that they are genuinely fighting crime and helping public safety or that they don't give a Pelosi, the only important thing is to disarm all civilians. The laws that they do push through rarely affect crime or public sa...

Re: You poor guys in the UK just don't get a break....

My local toy shop has section 5 so can deal in full auto firearms and handguns. Mainly for deactivation and film work.
