    Saw that on the news and it just doesnt pass the smell test. My guess is that some well conected antis with an agenda did this in order to foment shock & fear, in order to stimulate an emotional outcry for gun control/

    Seriously? How in the world does a civilian get hold of something like that? Did they actually buy it back or just confiscate it and arrest the "owner"? If they did buy it back, what do you get for anti tank rockets these days?

    The success of ban of guns in the UK, from an article in Wall Street Journal, via Townhall.com:
    Professor Joyce Lee Malcolm of George Mason University has a column in the Wall Street Journal, looking at the impact of anti-gun policies in the United Kingdom.

    …the Firearms Act of 1998…instituted a nearly complete ban on handguns. Owners of pistols were required to turn them in. The penalty for illegal possession of a pistol is up to 10 years in prison. The results have not been what proponents of the act wanted. Within a decade of the handgun ban and the confiscation of handguns from registered owners, crime with handguns had doubled according to British government crime reports. Gun crime, not a serious problem in the past, now is. Armed street gangs have some British police carrying guns for the first time.

    By the way, it’s not just gun crime that has gone up. The U.K. has become a much more dangerous and violent society – almost surely in part because the thugs don’t have to worry about armed resistance.

    Heck, if you are one of the few legal gun owners in the nation and you shoot a burglar, you get arrested instead of a pat on the back.

    The U.K.’s draconian restrictions on individual liberty lead to some Orwellian consequences. Professor Malcolm offers up two examples.

    Meanwhile, law-abiding citizens who have come into the possession of a firearm, even accidentally, have been harshly treated. In 2009 a former soldier, Paul Clarke, found a bag in his garden containing a shotgun. He brought it to the police station and was immediately handcuffed and charged with possession of the gun. At his trial the judge noted: “In law there is no dispute that Mr. Clarke has no defence to this charge. The intention of anybody possessing a firearm is irrelevant.” Mr. Clarke was sentenced to five years in prison. A public outcry eventually won his release. In November of this year, Danny Nightingale, member of a British special forces unit in Iraq and Afghanistan, was sentenced to 18 months in military prison for possession of a pistol and ammunition. Sgt. Nightingale was given the Glock pistol as a gift by Iraqi forces he had been training. It was packed up with his possessions and returned to him by colleagues in Iraq after he left the country to organize a funeral for two close friends killed in action. Mr. Nightingale pleaded guilty to avoid a five-year sentence and was in prison until an appeal and public outcry freed him on Nov. 29.
    Why are we obsessed by copying Euro policies that do not work: Brit gun control & healthcare control) ... Greek spending; French taxation ... and not copying something like the Swiss requiring all men to own and know how to use it?

    I wonder if law enforcement is checking serial numbers against stolen guns and if they find guns that have been reported stolen if they are returning them to the rightful owner. With $100,000.00 out there for turned in guns, that might be an inducement to steal some if you knew where they were easily accessible.

    Funny stuff, publish the addresses of people that own guns, then offer a buy back program.
