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. Schwarzenegger gets tough on California's guns;jsessionid=BGYUT5GLL4BFZQFIQMFCFFWAVCBQYIV0?xml=/news/2007/10/16/wcalif116.xml

    My, my that will help a lot. Must be really going worry all those Crips, you know, the ones which require their members only use fully licenced weapons. :roll:

    Mind Arnie was giving David Cameron a few tips about gangs and crime, so maybe our new Home Secretary might try to steal a march on the Tories and announce that all semi auto weapons sold in the Uk will also need to be microstamped.

    Oh wait.......
  2. The out, such as it is, is that if in the next two and a bit years no, or only one manufacturer cannot comply with this requirement (to include because of patent rights) the clause is nullified.

    Otherwise, it's a completely useless piece of legislation which only harms CA's firearms market. The 2007 requirements are bad enough. (Chamber loaded indicator and magazine disconnect)
