Look at all the fun we have to look forward to!

So that's what an "arsenal of evil" looks like... [:X*]

Remember, they are our "closest ally"  I only hope that in another 10 years we arent in the same boat.  I'd hate to think that I'm going to be on the other side of the bars for simply excercising my rights to own my "arsenal of evil"  Hell, that looks like a sesame street collection compared to mine.

Equally disturbing is the rumor that the two were overheard using the ghastly word "liberty" in school hallways.

You also gotta wonder how the reporter managed to avoid saying that the three long guns were "assault rifles"

“We are sure that a great many firearms are still being held illegally by gun obsessives such as these and that is obviously a danger to the public.” [puke]

Must...fight...urge...to...endanger...the...public. [rolleyes]

Man, that's disturbing.

It's nice to know that I will be considered a mad man in about ten years for owning guns.

If that's an arsenal of evil, they would think that I am Satan himself by looking at my collection.

No kidding. They'd have to bring an exorcist to my house. [}:D]

Maybe we should anonymously e-mail them pics of what an "arsenal of evil" REALLY looks like...

I dont know which is worse, the fact that those two got arrested for what most of us consider to be a fledgling collection, or the bias in that article.  
Its a quadruple barfer:

Thats an ARSENAL? I find more than that when I shake out the floor mats of my SUV!

Seriously, very disturbing but quite in line with the public opinion of guns and gun owners in G.B. Very clever refering to these individuals as "Gun Obsessives" sort of places them somewhere between Pedeophiles and Necrophyliacs (spelling) in the ranking of deviant behavior (in the eyes of public opinion).

Are you seriious? no wonder we had to send them guns in WW2 they are pathetic.....

Ummm, Where's the rest??

let's see, two teachers, a fireman and an engineer. yep, theyre dangerous obsessive mad gun-nuts!

They couldn't have been serious...only 13 pistols.

Wait at least 2 more generations, and you too will see headlines like these here in the U.S.
Link Posted: 6/7/2002 5:26:42 AM EDT
What I find especially disturbing is the heated rhetoric from the reporter.  Terms like, "Gun mad", and, "...a sickeing ARSENAL" are way over the top as far as I'm concerned.  On the other hand, it probably plays well with most of the Sun's readers.  Also...did you all notice how they all caps and bolded the number of guns the peelers found at these guys' homes?  THIRTEEN!!!...between them both...thirteen guns.  (Geez...I guess by there standards I'm already on the list of crazies about to commit a massacre!)

The SCARIEST [SHOCK] thing is that this is where we will be if the liberals ever really take control...as they have in California.  At the risk of taking the thread off on a tangent...just look at the incredibly restrictive and ultimately unconstitutional laws controlling gun ownership in that goofy state.  THAT is what we'll have and far worse if we ever give in to the libs.

Wow! A full auto BOLT gun?  Hmmmmmmmm.

Get used to it guys.  The idiot that wrote that trash could just as easily write for USA Today!  America will be that bad in a decade or two, maybe less.  Commie PRK, Taxachussets, NYC, NJ is nearly there now.

Next time the Britts get their asses in a jam, I say lets let them go down for the count! This is what you get when you are a "Subject of the Crown" and not a Citizen of a free nation. When Adolf and the boys were thinking of ending the Kings' rule of that soggy little island of pompous people, they had no weapons to repel an invasion. Soooo  what does the USA do ? We send them all the extra firearms we could muster. The NRA helped to collect them and get them to places where they could be shipped to those unarmed subjugated fools. So here we go almost full circle.Now they are bad-mouthing weapons again!Those little creeps would be speaking German if it wasn't for the American "gun-mad" culture! Instead of showing some Limeys ass on the front page of the SUN, it would have the SEIG HILE column.

don't forget the enormous quantity of ammo to supply this "arsenal of evil".....hundreds of rounds, guys.  this is getting serious.

you what else i find ironic?  that despite the horrified tone of the obviously biased rhetoric in the article, these guys were jailed for 12 months and 6 months.  serious sentences for "serious" crimes, yes?  [rolleyes]

jeesh, they treat criminals almost as nicely as we do.  i'd keep my firearms if that's all they did to me.  of course, i wouldn't let my firearms be found either.

one more thing:  i didn't realize that gangbangers were becoming so enamored of bolt actions.  are they getting nostalgic in their "old" age of late teens?

Those 2 Mausers and the one Mossie aren't nostalgic bolt-action rifles of old, those are clearly evil military-style multiple-shot high accuracy sniper rifles. Don't you know anything? [rolleyes]

Hosty had kept one of the handguns fully loaded in a bedside cabinet at his home in Shaw, Greater Manchester.
View Quote

Just one fully loaded?...

Cops found THIRTEEN handguns at the home of primary school teacher Thomas Hosty, 53. He also had two CS gas canisters, a stun gun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

Are they not even allowed stun guns?  And I suppose hundreds of rounds is a lot considering I suppose you're not supposed to have even one not to mention they can't exactly go to a range...but I guess I'd be in a whole heap of trouble with my thousands and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

"They were trapped in a massive police operation designed to halt the rocketing supply of guns to Britain’s crime gangs.

Instead police found a network of middle-class gun nuts who had refused to hand in weapons after Dunblane — when madman Thomas Hamilton killed 16 children and their teacher — and the Hungerford horror of 1987."
