Thread: Interesting pointer

    So with almost 2 million guns legally held in the UK this nugget thinks 2 instances in the last year warrants the statement

    "Reform of the gun licensing regime is needed and needed now"

    Shows what little grasp of reality she has, and if the current guidelines had been followed maybe one or both of the incidents couldve been prevented.

    Regards,

    after reading We also want to shift the onus on to the applicant to prove their suitability.
    isn't the onus on us to do this already?

    I bet she means we have to pay for reports various and unspecified over and above what is done already

    "After a decade without a fee rise, it is now time that the license fee reflects the true cost to the police. It is ridiculous that the annual cost of the firearms license is only a third as much as a fishing license"

    Lets not mention the cost to the police of the driving licence holders, and the number of people killed by cars, motorcycles and lorries. As and FAC and SGC holder, they know we will pay and conform to the law. They have us over the barrel
    Work them hard, treat them like heros.

    Do the Labour party actually know how many votes the rural/farming/fieldsports community represent?

    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"

    As Tony Blair said, "There are no votes in the countryside (for Labour)."

    Labour introduced the Hunting act and issued no licences to cull Badgers from section 10.1 and 2 of the 1992 Badger Act, which brought about the shameful BTb situation.

    How many rural Labour MPs are there?
    None.

    Exactly.... but the people who would vote Labour because of their policies on gun reform would have voted Labour anyway

    They're not going to win any new votes from rural folk

    That's not their concern. The real target demographic for this is centrist, urban middle class voters who switch back and forth between Tory and Labour.

    The Tories always struggle with the fact that they want to appear tough on crime, and to the majority of urban voters, that means advocating more gun control, which they've got to be careful about because of the rural vote. Labour struggle with appearing weaker on crime, but don't really have to worry about appealing to rural voters - so it's a cost free way to seem tougher.
