Gun Licensing in Scotland

If you listen to the pro-gun crowd you'd get the impression that lawfully-owned guns have practically disappeared in the United Kingdom. They use expressions like "guns have been banned there," and other ignorant and misleading statements to paint a false picture. If questioned, they fall back on that tedious argument over the meaning of "ban."

This story
is interesting because it shows that there's a very different situation in Scotand than we've been led to believe regarding gun ownership. It also brings up the fascinating subject of children and guns.

A minimum age limit for shotgun licences should be introduced, according to the Scottish Government, after it emerged one had been given to a child of 10.

  1. Handguns = BANNED

    Rifles = BANNED

    Shotguns = Heavily controlled, licensed and registered.

    Yup, a regular gun owner paradise.
