New UK Gun Policy Should Be A Warning To American Gun Owners

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- A new policy announced by the British Home Office recently to allow unannounced searches of the homes of registered British gun owners should raise alarms among Americans who are threatened with increasingly restrictive gun laws pushed by wealthy anti-gunners including billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“This is an alarming development in Great Britain,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “and it ought to serve as a warning to American gun owners and Constitutional activists concerned not only with their Second Amendment rights but also their Fourth Amendment rights. In Washington state, where CCRKBA is headquartered, there have already been attempts to include such language in so-called ‘assault weapons’ ban legislation.

“There are also privacy concerns about Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure requiring background checks on nearly all firearms transfers,” he added, “ including temporary loans and gifts to friends and in-laws. All too frequently, we’ve heard the gun prohibition lobby urge adoption of gun laws and regulations like those in the United Kingdom, and now we can see what they’re ultimately after.”

New UK Gun Policy Should Be A Warning To American Gun Owners

According to Fox News, prior to the new regulations, British gun owners were subject to visits by the authorities. However, these required prior notification. The new policy does not.

“British authorities argue that the new policy is necessary based on so-called ‘intelligence’ indicating a specific threat,” Gottlieb observed, “but there is considerable danger in this revision because such guidelines could be easily abused.

“We are living in an era when government, under the rather broad arguments of national and local security, is becoming ever more intrusive,” he continued. “Our delineated civil rights, at least in America, include the right to keep and bear arms, and the example now coming from Great Britain is that this right is being systematically eroded to the point that it is becoming a heavily-regulated privilege.

“Let this be a warning to tens of millions of law-abiding American gun owners,” Gottlieb concluded. “What’s happening now in the United Kingdom will be touted as the next ‘common sense’ step for gun control in the United States. Just because someone exercises their right to keep and bear arms should not be an excuse to nullify their right to privacy.”

Until the 4th amendment is erased from the constitution, any attempt to force entry and inspection will be against the law.

It will start by making you agree to it, in advance, when you renew your CC license, then be expanded to a revised 4473.

If the camel stuck its nose into the tent all at once, we’d see it coming and drive it away from the tent. But it doesn’t and we don’t.

That’s what the word “reasonable” means in gun control speak … “reasonable” means to be so subtle as not to be noticed. Until, of course, we have been disarmed sufficiently to permit a frontal assault.

The UK gives no right of self defense, you only have the right to be a victim. Thats one messed up society, must be why America was formed, we got rid of stupid, but it’s trying to comeback.

Norway has already implemented this rule a long time ago. When you apply for a license you agree upon that the local police can “at anytime” inspect your weapons. There are no limitations saying that it is only what they can inspect.

Find one government in the entire history of humanity that felt a need to document a “RIGHT” for it’s soldiers to carry weapons. The claim that the Government wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our soldiers a “right” to carry weapons is S-T-U-P-I-D. The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS. The only reason for the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS’ GOD GIVEN RIGHTS. Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it’s “rights” up to and including declaring itself… Read more »

All you dummies who gleefully submitted to defacto registration in exchange for government permission to carry concealed, beware. It’s not like some of us didn’t try to warn you back in the 90s when the bums rush for CCW permits became vogue.

The majority of Brits don’t care about rights or self protection. The Brits that did care mostly moved to the colonies and fought a war and forged a new nation a long time ago. Even the Scots were too scared to take back control of their own country.

‘Enhanced background checks’ lay the foundation for this type of government abuse.
