Personally I thought the post-Dunblane over-reaction to be totally ridiculous and over the top. What if the swine had used a golf club - would golf have been banned?

Many years ago I shared a house with a few others, one of whom had a legal permit to own a Colt Python .357 Magnum. He was also permitted to make his own ammunition. But that was quite acceptable back then - he was a competition shot in any case. I had a go with his weapon on the range once - truly impressive! His sport was terminated by the government's over-reaction along with that of many other quite lawful and disciplined weapon owners.

Don't think that we'll ever be permitted to own Mr Desert Eagle Point Five Oh and his friends in the UK, no matter who gets to run the country!
