Seems that handguns are winning at the moment!

I doubt it would get a first reading.

I think that they mean the handgun law should be repealed for SAS snipers only!

84% to repeal hand gun ban.

But there is nothing to stop you voting more than once.
 
#9
More to the point 84% of people interested in handguns want the handgun ban repealed.
Quelle surprise!

In 97 when they were still debating a possible hand gun ban, a TV magazine show held a vote on whether there should be a ban or not.

Funnily enough the results were a massive landslide against the ban.

As the results didn’t coincide with the programme’s slant it just dismissed it saying that it was obvious that a load of gun supported had voted and skewed the figures!

The handgun ban will never be repealed - period.
Nor any other firearm/weapon related ban.

And the people for whom it matters are a minority so tiny that it's entirely safe to ignore them completely (from a political perspective).

Unfortunately BB you are absolutely correct. However it brings to mind Pastor Martin Niemöllers poem:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionist,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.
