From Joan is this AMAZING little graphic!
So not only is it an image produced by the BBC, as in BRITISH Broadcasting….as in the people who blanket banned guns and forced under penalty of law people return them for a nominal feel.
I guess your definition of confiscation is different than mine. From the article you linked:” More than 160,000 handguns have been surrendered by their owners since new laws were introduced following the Dunblane massacre, the UK Government has revealed.”
Confiscate- ” To seize (private property) for the public treasury.
2. To seize by or as if by authority. See Synonyms at appropriate.
adj. (knf-skt, kn-fskt)
1. Seized by a government; appropriated.
2. Having lost property through confiscation.”
Gun owners in UK were compensated for their guns turned in though it took longer than they expected.
Yep, the law abiding gun owners in the UK had “Nothing to fear” and we shouldn’t either!
The irony is at critical mass on this one!
