In an article of July 17, Sky News crowed about a single seizure of illegal guns (“illegal guns” is a redundancy in the UK). The bust went down on the French side of the Channel Tunnel, with the guns ostensibly on their way to England. We’re told that a number of “viable” handguns “in 4mm and 6mm” caliber, plus ammunition, were seized.
For one, I’d sure like to see what 4mm and 6mm handgun ammunition looks like. And I’m not at all sure what “non-viable” handguns might looks like, either. Sky News writers obviously couldn’t distinguish a “viable gun” from a waffle-iron.
Like “show” drug-seizures, often ballyhooed by police, this seizure represents some minuscule fraction of one percent of guns illegally entering the UK.
“Real guns” are regularly slipped into the UK, in the dead of night, via small boats operating into small coves along England’s complicated and poorly-patrolled coastline, as they have been for most of the last century.
Once again, the foregoing is little more than carefully-orchestrated “security theater,” specifically designed for naive consumption by a gullible public.
Castrated citizens of the UK, and all of Western Europe, remain extremely vulnerable to a bona fide holocaust, perpetuated by heavily-armed Islamic Terrorists. Little is being done to correct this situation, save an occasional “show” seizure/arrest, designed to temporarily mollify the frightened and apprehensive.
Citizens, here and there, are solely responsible for their own protection, whether they realize it or not, as governments predictably spend the vast majority of time, effort, and resources protecting themselves, as we see!
