I am interested in how we first lost our right to carry firearms.
Was it taken away from us, or did carrying weapons become unfashionable?
I think it goes back to the fifties when the home office "advised" all Police forces that when someone applied for a firearm permit they needed to state a reason why they wanted one.

The "advice" stated that "for self defense" was NOT an acceptable reason. Therefore people learnt to say "for sport" and in just a few years the idea that self defense was reasonable started to go out of the British mind.

Watch out that the tree hugging bleeding heart libs/commies in the US don't try the same trick on you guys
