How Did a “Gun Nut” Amass 160 Firearms in “Gun Free” UK?

The Truth About Guns – by Robert Farago

In the wake of three high-profile mass shootings — Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs and Rancho Tehema — I wonder if firearms freedom fence sitters are starting to get the message: gun control doesn’t work. Background checks don’t stop criminals, crazies and terrorists from tooling-up and going postal. Background checks don’t stop them. Assault weapon bans don’t stop them. Ammunition capacity laws don’t stop them. A bullet to the brain? That stops them! Here’s more proof [via dailyrecord.co.uk] . . .  

An eccentric pensioner who was found to have a massive arsenal of weapons after the fire brigade rushed to put out a blaze at his home has been jailed for five years.

Paul Bushell had amassed around 160 firearms, some of which were loaded and included sub-machine guns and Russian-made AKM 47 rifles.

The 74-year-old stashed the weapons in a basement and in the top floor room at his Edwardian mid-terrace house, without any of his family knowing about it.

The guns found included a Sten submachine, a British Mk1 machine gun, an Armalite AR10 rifle, and a M10 sub-machine gun.

The pensioner also had a Kommando semi-automatic pistol, a Russian AKm47 rifle and a FN 1910 semi-automatic pistol.

Now I’m not saying that Mr. Bushell is a bad guy. None of the reports of his UK “arsenal” (not the football team) indicated that he planned to do anything nefarious with his firearms.

I highlight his case to make an obvious point: if a good guy can amass 74 firearms — including machine guns — in an island country American antis hail as a “gun free zone,” what are the chances that gun control laws canchoke off the firearms supply to bad guys in the U.S., a country with some 300m firearms in private hands? Exactly, precisely, none.

Oh and how did Mr. Bushell get his guns? Strangely none of the news accounts of his crime(s) address that point.

Especially not The Guardian, a news org that’s recently launched a full-on, on-going semi-journalistic assault on American gun rights called Break the Cycle. If only we could break the cycle of anti-gunners’ willful ignorance . . .

    2 years ago this week James Walker Morales easily stole 16 guns from the Worcester Massachusetts Armory. ( It involved keys, , surveillane video, guards over several trips back and forth to his car in the night.) Anyone remember that bizarre case.? Soon after his conviction he escaped playing basketball at a Federal Penn (?) only to be soon recaptured. Another case swept away by the media….I think only 2 guns were recovered. A little research ? The media sure swept it away quickly too. Just really weird. Maybe used by Paddock or ISIS? Who knows but bungling all over in that one….very fishy…2 years ago.
