Yes yes it is.
“Under POCA, the burden of proof lay with the box-holders. Finding evidence for wartime treks across Europe, or charting migration stories from the Partition of India and beyond, would cost many of the box-holders tens of thousands of pounds.”
FYI, I noticed that this article (and the other linked in comments) is from 2009, 3 years ago.
Both good finds, just be informed of the date.
I wonder if things have gotten better/worse in the intervening 3 years?
As the anti-gun rhetoric and calls for more “reasonable restrictions on guns” and “it’s past time for a dialogue on gun control” heat up in the wake of the Aurora tragedy, keep this article in mind.
History has proven, repeatedly, that crime rates – especially violent crimes using guns – rise dramatically in the wake of gun grabs and bans. Just ask the UK – or residents of Chicago and DC – for the most recent examples. This is obvious proof that when guns are outlawed, criminals will still find and use them – in even greater numbers than before.
(Unfortunately, this article does blame the US “gun and gang culture” for the UK’s problems – and while I agree to some extent, the English brought this on through their total ban on handguns and most long guns, through their lax immigration standards, and by openly embracing political correctness and “Diversity” in the name of Social Justice. But the numbers here speak for themselves.).
As defenders of the Constitution and the right to own and bear arms for self-protection, hunting, and to prevent the rise of tyranny – we must use facts to counter the emotional hyperbole of our opposites. And this article serves as a good point of data to that end.
