    It was not an alright jack mentality, illegal centrefire semi autos in the UK so are not legit for stalking , thats why I wrote it that way, if it was a rabbit/vermin site I would have made a different comment

    No one mentioned centrefire semi autos the actual wording is AK47 and AR15 derivatives, there are a heap of 22LR derivatives of AR15s and the Sig 522 is based on the AK system and what about all the straight pulls?

    It's better to defend well out front...to take the fight into the enemy's trenches...rather than retreat and cede him your own forward positions and then find his attack doesn't just stop there.

    The same with guns. You defend the "others" rights because that way your own aren't left exposed to the next anti-gun legislative onslaught. But that's Britush shooting. Too many "petty Princes in little Kingdoms".

    The perfect recipe to be divided and ruled by those who see the prohibition of ALL shooting as their ultimate goal. Let's not forget BDS also aided the self-loading '88 ban in a letter to the then Government.

    Had we defended, or rather had the craven British NRA, not abandoned self-loading and pump action rifles in 1988 I'm convinced we'd still have pistols.

    But the "I'm alright Jack" attitude in 1988 allowed a ban then that made the 1996 ban a foregone conclusion. Had there been no ban in '88 there'd have been no ban in '96.

    Write to your MEP's not MP's.

    This decision will be made by those from other countries we have not elected.

    This website makes it easy.

    My argument to them is that terrorists want us to be scared and change our way of life. If this legislation goes through, the terrorists have won.

    Yep. Let's all stick together. But that does mean not trying to denigrate those fieldsports and shooting disciplines that you don't take part in, doesn't it. Not sure "flightless birds" and "clay and shooting vest gang" comments help too much in that regard you know.
