Oh how I hope this never becomes us!

To add to the irony, this many had numerous licensed weapons that were real firearms--and they popped him on this nonsense.

Likely because they didn't want him owning the regular ones in the first place. Then again in a place where you have to pay a license for your television every year I'm not too surprised.  ::)

I agree with the pond not bein' wide enough. Stupid Brits!
The greatest assimilation of notes ever done on electric guitar, The Star Spangled Banner and Machine Gun II by Jimi Hendrix, were done for those who served with their lives, be they living or deceased. Only an idiot doesn't believe that.
