New laws on deactivated weapons

According the Home Secretary, Jacqui Smith, the government is looking at changing the law with regards to deactivated weapons in the UK. This could affect me personally as I have a pretend M-16 Assault rifle model which was used for a film we made some year’s ago.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said here:

“I want to balance protecting the public with the rights of responsible collectors of deactivated firearms,” she said.

High-profile murders such as the shooting of 11-year-old Rhys Jones as he walked home from football practice in Liverpool last August have raised public concerns about of gun crime.

To be honest though, I’m relatively sure that Rhys Jones wasn’t shot with a deactivated gun, he was shot with one that works. This brings me back to my post about the Americans and their banning of Megatron toys.

When will common sense prevail and actual REAL guns be pin-pointed as the problem in shootings?

Surely it’s fucking obvious?
