Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have read enough comments from various sources about banning the private ownership of firearms but the Royal Armouries was the last place I thought this might appear:

  5. Ban firearms so that only the military and the police services have weapons:
