Great Britain bans......leverguns!

Post by wvfarrier »

Yup, you heard me. I just heard a news article on the radio, all leverguns are now banned along with virtually ALL fixed blade knives or knives with a locking blade.

The war on crime is just as effective as the war on drugs.

That's news to me, I had a letter a couple of days ago from the police telling me "if" I own a MARS action or Lever release firearm I have until 9th March 2021 to surrender them and claim compensation. If not surrendered, prosecution and loss of firearms license will follow.
No mention of Leveraction firearms or knives of any kind but I expect they are in the pipeline.. :roll:

Maybe the bbc miss understood the difference between lever release and lever action?

It does sound like confusing lever release with lever action. Not suprising since I had never heard of lever release actions till this thread!

I had to look it up. Sort of sounds like a strange method of making something work just to appease the idiots.

The things you have to invent to get around stupid laws and then they come out with even more stupid laws... :roll:
