Where Great Britain Used To Be

At a gun buyback, her majesty’s subjects turned in kitchen knives and a fork.

    It’s nice to see dope-on-a-table is a universal language but I was very disappointed that they didn’t have the knife and fork included in the spread.

  2. Publius Says:

    I guarantee you that someone was protesting the stupidity by anonymously turning in a fork. Guarantee.

  3. Old NFO Says:

    Agree with Publius… Some wag is ‘unhappy’…

    That top break revolver looks pretty sweet. Such a shame.

    Nice to see they got all that trap ammo confiscated. The clay pigeons will sleep better tonight.

  5. MattW Says:

    So a coordinated effort throughout the ENTIRE country resulted in people turning in 58 firearms, and that’s a 30% increase from last year?!? Impressive. Especially considering a few of them appear to be antiques and/or non-functioning.

    I like the use of the term “surrender” rather than the nonsequitor “buyback” for the placement of privately owned weapons with the police. It makes sense that subjects of the crown must surrender what is theirs to their betters.

    It was COUNTY wide not COUNTRY wide. I love how the bolt action .22LR (Glenfield single shot?)is locked open but the AK clone is magazined and closed?!?!?!?!?!

  8. Sigivald Says:

    “Firearms”, “non-functional replicas”, same thing, right?

    (Re. MattW above, the numbers here are only for North Yorkshire.)

    If it was a metal fork instead of a plastic one, I can understand why they would want that off the streets.

  10. JNorth Says:

    While I agree with Pubilus, it could possibly be a Military Fork.

    It was at the buffet spread.

    Those people are truly, certifiably insane. Look at that goon with the revolver. He really thinks he’s on to something.

    Considering how long they’ve been striving for their own decline, it’s amazing that the UK and Europe aren’t in worse shape.

  13. JTC Says:

    So, out of that table full of crap, they got THREE handguns? That’s hilarious.

    Also, TWO shotgun canes? Cool. Only they’re not there. Some Bobby got him some nice collectibles.

    In a not-so-far-away era, this disarmed England would have been like waving a red flag and shouting “Hey, Germany! PAAARTY!!”

    Of course, Germany has its own troubles at the moment. But I fail to see anything good coming out of a country un-learning how to defend itself.

    “We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.” — Winston Churchill, 4 June 1940

    — fight with what? Well, urban legend has it that, after delivering that magnificent speech, Churchill muttered: “And weíll fight them with the butt ends of broken beer bottles because that’s bloody well all we’ve got!”

    Some people never learn…

    The good sergeant holds a .44 cal. S&W New Model 3 American (or possibly Russian, you can’t see the trigger guard) in nickel finish. Circa 1870s-1880s. Nice one like that is worth around 3k in this country to a collector. Crime against history to destroy it.

  16. ExpatNJ Says:

    Notice the Thompson?

    Did some idiot actually turn that in? Or, was it planted there by the PD as ‘fake news’ to show how they’re getting gangsta guns off the streets?

  17. JTC Says:

    The piece says the Thompson is a replica. As are 36 of 40 rifles and 74 of 77 handguns. Great haul. It wasn’t a gun buy-back, it was Cash4Toys.

    JTC, the average Brit doesn’t know the difference.

  19. JTC Says:

    rickn8or, I know some expat brits who sure do, which is at least partly why they are expats. Some Calexit types too.
