http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2005/01/31/neu31.xml&sSheet=/portal/2005/01/31/ixportal.html This is rediculous - it would mean that, in theory at least, any firearms owners in the EU who legally own pistols or self-loading rifles could be prosecuted in the UK under Sec. 5 of the 1968 Firearms Act (as amd)... I was under the impression that laws were supposed to be territorially limited... In addition, anyone who smokes dope in Holland could be prosecuted in some other EU country for taking drugs, and people in the UK & Ireland would be able to be prosecuted on the mainland for traffic offences (and vice-versa) - i.e. driving on the wrong side of the road!!! How recockulous!
