Boltys~

 

Just need a license, not much of a hassle. Pistols on the other hand is a totally different matter.

Semi-auto - only a .22 rimfire. Everything else is illegal. See 1987 Hungerford massacre.

 

Quote:
Firearm Certificate - this is issued to U.K. residents, covering rifles, shotguns with a magazine capacity greater than two, and airguns with a muzzle energy greater than 12 ft-lbs. This certificate will list the firearm(s) possessed, and those allowed to be purchased or acquired, together with the quantity of ammunition that may be held, purchased or acquired. There may also be strict limitations on exactly where the firearm(s) may be used. This certificate will not entitle the holder to purchase automatic, semi-automatic (other than .22 rimfire), or pump-action (other than .22 rimfire) rifles. Any air rifle with a muzzle energy greater than 12 ft/lbs, or air pistol greater than 6 ft/lbs, may not be purchased unless you possess a Firearms Certificate authorising you to do so. Handguns are now effectively banned.
 
Shotgun Certificate - will show the names and serial numbers of any shotguns possessed. There are currently no restrictions on the acquisition of shotguns, providing the details of any transaction are noted on the certificate, and the issuing police authority informed. It is necessary to produce your certificate when purchasing cartridges. For the purposes of the certificate, a shotgun is defined as a smoothbore gun, with barrel(s) at least 24" (610mm) long. Semi-automatics and pump-actions must have a magazine capacity of no more than two shots: this has be a permanent restriction, verified by either the London or Birmingham Proof Houses.

Fork kills baby.

 

As we have a no tolerance policy, this could happen again. so instead of focusing on OTHER areas of WHY this happened. Let's just ban forks outright and call it a day as the masses are stupid and even though we know this is stupid as well. We can't get votes for it otherwise.

Densha Otoko is actually a really good show. But they kinda f* it up slightly through bad usage of music and the occasional supposedly funny comic relief.

**** off with your pro-stupidity drivel. People are dumb, guns are dangerous. Especially in America.

I do agree with it about guns. But other 'no tolerance' policies in the world. On bullying and general social issues that don't usually involve death is what I am more advocating for.

If I had it my way, we'd be extremely low tolerance on negative social issues as well. What's that? Don't want to separate your trash for recycling? Guess we won't bother taking your bins. Fly tipping? Ohh, I'll just tow your car for a month. Constantly being a prick at work? Have a P45 form.

But how will you engineer such a low tolerance society? It isn't exactly working in Murica.

 

The only places where such huge social reform has happened is in places that got blown up in war allowing the 'new' population that didn't get killed to go along with the huge generally liberal policies made during war time.

 

UK, Japan, S Korea, Germany are some good examples.

This.
The world would be a better place with harder gun regulations. These things are just fugging with peoples minds.

Hypothetically? Genocide and forced cultural reform followed by massive eugenics. Maybe it'd work, maybe it wouldn't. Not enough people would support an extreme path like that though...well, actually I guess they would, it's happened before, but the trick would be getting it done without the rest of the world going apeshchiit. Morally questionable? Certainly, but if you're planning for the very long term, it might pay off.
