Jailed arms dealer sold guns to police and MoD

 

One small detail - this happened last month in the UK.  Still think tougher gun laws keep guns away?

    Sure... but only from average law abiding citizens who want to protect themselves.

  • Of course people think it will prevent it. I have never known a criminal who follows the law ;)

  • I would like to add that in reality this whole "gun control" thing is the governments way of putting a band aid on problems until the next issue arises.... It's sort of like, well... actually it is their way of pacifying the public in times of crisis. It's what they do best. I really shudder when I think that so many people believe this is going to work and cure what ails us, so to speak.

  • Obviously a new law needs to be enacted
    one that makes it illegal to sale weapons while under investigation for illegally selling weapons

    never did. and i dont think the extreme opposite (no restrictions for guns) will make things better either. guns arent the problem...its certain ppl's use of guns thats the problem.

  • Nope but I would give you odds that that arms dealer wasn't planning to supply lawabiding citizens
