    A useful link to the evolution of UK Gun Law

    I hope that this may be useful? It appears to be a well researched paper on UK Gun Law especially as it gives stated cases in respect of UK Gun Law.

    Yes! I have read it through. All one hundred and twenty pages.



    I did it in the spare time I had after reading through the EU Firearms Directive proposed changes.

    Thanks for this - I have a couple of long flights coming up where I'll get a chance to read the detail.

    From the first cursory glance it looks to focus on Firearms as defined in law, rather than overall Firearms Law, so it doesn't cover areas such as storage, ammunition, etc. Interesting nonetheless.

    Yes certainly looks like an interesting article that I will read in full later.

    Interestingly on a cursory skim I see no mention of the allegedly still valid 1689 Bill of Rights that gives (protestant) citizens the right to bear arms.......

    Thank you, enfieldspares.

    ... and mr slider,

    I have some law books on the modern right to keep and bear arms under the English Constitution, by professors of law at Oxford and Cambridge, if you care to read further. They are 30 years old, but since they were relevant when written 300 years after that Constitution, I think they are still relevant today.

    .... and a lot of articles by American legal scholars on the basis for American rights in the English Common Law and in the laws of the German states, which comprised over 80% of the settlers of America, many of them online, or short enough for me to post excerpts here.

    Oh dear! He must have left it out accidentally.....

    It's the "elephant in the room"...they can't mention it.

    Because if they do they have to acknowledge that it strikes down all the rest.

    And I guess therefore that his brief was to avoid any mention of it for that very reason.
