British citizens can now own AR-15 style weapons, thanks to new technology

"There’s some interesting stuff coming out of the United Kingdom these days, specifically a new concept for getting around the existing semi-auto rifle ban that has been in place for ages. Previous attempts to get a somewhat functional AR-15 or semi-automatic-esque firearm into the market relied on a pump action sort of design where the operator worked the action for every shot, but now a new design seems to be popping up that’s enabling our limey cousins to enjoy some of the rapid firing capabilities of the rifle that they have been sorely missing . . ."

Way to go UK!

I'm going to stick my neck out here and suggest that article is inaccurate at best. The rules regarding firearms would make California look tame. Even many imitation weapons and ALL handguns are banned over there and shotguns are heavily restricted having a 'justifiable cause' requirement.

Hey - at least it is not banned because of how it looks.
pfffftt. For now. You can't own a handgun at all and yet the police can search you for whatever trumped up cause they choose. And of course no one ever gets shot there as dangerous guns are banned.

One man dies and two injured in Sparkbrook shooting

Police probe two Birmingham shootings in 12 hours after wounded man walks into same city hospital

Yep, looks like banning firearms and 'multiculturalism' is really working for these socialist idiots. :banghead:
