UK Bans Lever Release Action and ‘MARS’ Non-Semiautomatic Rifles

UK union jack no guns

Bigstock

In the land formerly known as Great Britain, the Crown has has granted royal assent to the Offensive Weapons Bill as passed by Parliament. This new law bans the sale and possession of lever release action and manually actuated release system weapons.

The LRA guns are essentially semi-autos with a bolt catch that must be disengaged each time the rifle is fired. Pull the trigger, the rifle fires and the bolt locks back. The shooter then releases the bolt with by depressing a lever on the receiver before pulling the trigger again.

MARS guns are semi-automatic rifles that have been modified in a way that forces you to pull the trigger twice in order to fire it. The action is locked back when a round is fired. The shooter then pulls the trigger once to close the bolt and then a second time to fire the rifle.

These mechanical work-arounds kept these rifles from being considered semi-automatics under UK law. Actual semi-autos have been banned in the Land of Hope and Glory since 1988.

For a good illustration of how these rifles work, check out these two videos from Pete Moore of Shooting Sports Magazine. Here’s the LRA rifle:

And the MARS gun:

Now both designs are officially verboten.

The UK Government in their official press release states that following:

These new laws will give police extra powers to seize dangerous weapons and ensure knives are less likely to make their way onto the streets in the first place. The Act will also see the introduction of Knife Crime Prevention Orders – a power the police called for. As well as tough law enforcement, it’s hugely important we continue our work to steer young people away from a life of crime in the first place.

The Act includes a number of other measures to tackle serious violence, including:

  • a ban on the possession, manufacture and sale of rapid firing rifles and bump stocks, which increase a rifle’s rate of fire. The ban on the manufacture and sale of these weapons has now come into force with immediate effect

A statement from the National Rifle Association UK (no relation to the US organization) makes clear what the new law means for British shooters.

The Act introduces new prohibitions under the Firearms Act 1968 on certain rapid-firing rifles, including lever release and MARS rifles.

Prohibited “rapid firing rifles” are those with a chamber from which empty cartridge cases are extracted using (i) energy from propellant gas, or (ii) energy imparted to a spring or other energy storage device by propellant gas,

other than a rifle which is chambered for .22 rim-fire cartridges.

The prohibitions come into force with effect from today, 16 May 2019, to the extent that they prohibit the manufacture, sale, transfer or acquisition of such weapons. The prohibition on possession will come into force at a later date, following the completion of the surrender and compensation arrangements.

Compensation and surrender arrangements

Sections 56 to 59 of the 2019 Act set out the surrender and compensation arrangements which must be followed before the prohibition on the possession of the above weapons can come into force.  The arrangements are subject to secondary legislation before they can come into force. The Home Office will publish details on the arrangements for applying for compensation in due course, to include who can apply for compensation, how they can apply, timescales for applications, what information owners need to supply to evidence ownership, and surrender arrangements.

Yes, the Crown went after bump fire stocks too. Firearms-UK released a blurb on their Facebook page and they aren’t happy with this new law.

 

My friends in Switzerland are dealing with their own issues because of EU despotism and we here in Florida and the US as a whole are facing our own never-ending assault on the Second Amendment. Now my friends in the UK are having their rights further crushed by the onslaught of Big Brother. What little bit of joy they still had in their police state of an island has been further eroded.

Across the globe, the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex continues its push, stripping people of any viable means of self defense. It’s grim to see what the UK has become.

    To curtail knife crime we must take the guns we haven’t taken yet. Checks out.

    1. avatar Guesty says:

      Geez. I literally (no joke) have three knives on me right now as I prepare for work. A full blade on one hip, and a multi-tool on the other. I use them every single day, whether at work or home. Even in my home state of Kommifornia nobody bats an eye if I walk into a Starbucks with them (half the men have a utility knife of some sort clipped to their pants at any given time). Know why you don’t hear of “knife crimes” every night on the news?…because everyone carries them and nobody here cares or tries anything.

      Hmmm…I wonder if the same logic would apply to, I don’t know, maybe guns?

      I visited London some years ago. Don’t see any need to ever go there again.

        The 1:19,000 is valid for on duty street cops. When you factor in police administrators, “paper” cops, investigators, and “desk” cops THEN factor in the nature of shift work you go from 1 Law Enforcement Officer for 400 citizens, to 1 uniformed street cop for 19,000 citizens.

          Mate, I’m a former UK citizen, now US citizen and Sheriff’s Deputy in the southwest. I can tell you that in my county we have about 100 deputies and the 2 towns and one city have about 170 cops total. Out of about 270 coppers, probably 10 might try collecting weapons and that would include the biggest city’s Chief who is a liberal turd. The rest of us own guns too and we’re just citizens who wear different clothes to go to work. My Sheriff has publicly stated he will NOT attempt to enforce any unconstitutional gun laws including so called universal back ground check laws and for damn sure no ‘red flag’ laws. My county along with the majority of counties in New Mexico have declared themselves 2nd Amendment Sanctuary counties and are refusing to toe the dumb ass governor’s liberal bullshit line.

          Lots of cops around the nation won’t be trying to take our guns; those that do might be the first to find out what happens…

      I believe all point tip knives are banned already, all knives have to be blunt or squared at the end or someshit. Soon those will be banned as well. “I mean what do you really need a knife for anyway, food comes pre chopped these days and you shouldn’t be opening boxes without state supervision.”

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        No, the tip-ban was just a proposal. It came from a judge, which was rather disturbing, upon his retirement. He commented that other than people in professional capacity no one need “large” kitchen knives with points.

        However: It’s illegal in the UK to carry a blade over 3″ in length that’s fixed or a locking folder and carrying a sub 3″ non-locking knife requires “good reason”. What is good reason you ask? So far as I can tell it’s a nebulous term so the cops can decide on the spot if you have “good reason” or not.

      2. avatar Dave says:

        Square-point just means the techniques change, q.v. hacking with Hong Kong-style cleavers. The UK’s problem is its people, not its blade geometries.

    “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”
    -ADOLF HITLER

    “Ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.” ~ Heinrich Himmler.

    1938 – Germany disarmed its citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 6 million German Jews and 7million Gentiles

      “1938 – Germany disarmed its citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 6 million German Jews and 7million Gentiles”

      More myths that get repeated over and over. Germany nor Hitler disarmed civilians. Hitler did introduce gun registration but that is as far as it went. My father who served with General Patton disarmed hundreds of German civilians in WWII and took thousands of civilian arms to it was the U.S.of Hey that disarmed the German civilians not Hitler. So get your history straight for once.

      1. avatar jay y says:

        Few German citizens owned or were entitled to own firearms in Germany in the 1930s. The Weimar Republic had strict gun control laws. When the Third Reich gained power, some aspects of gun regulation were loosened, such as allowing firearm ownership for Nazi party members and the military. The laws were tightened in other ways. Nazi laws systematically disarmed “unreliable” persons, which included Jews, Gypsies and others, but relaxed restrictions for so-called “ordinary” German citizens. The policies were later expanded to include the confiscation of arms in occupied countries.

      2. avatar tdiinva says:

        The government distributed firearms to the population at the end of the war so it is possible to distinguish firearms in civilian hands from those passed out by the government.

      3. avatar ozzallos says:

        Wait. German citizens defending their home country had firearms? Tell me more about these supposed gun rights. Read up on Operation Downfall and see what they were expecting for the Invasion of japan for some perspective.

      4. avatar Cory C. says:

        You are 100% wrong about that. Read Gun Control in The Third Reich by Stephen Holbrook. It is a scholarly work created by way of the author traveling to Germany and revising their laws, newspapers, etc. and meticulously documenting every claim made. The Germans unquestionably disarmed Jewish citizens. The myth is that the disarmament was a myth.

London has a Muslim Mayor and Hamtramck, Mich has a city council of all Muslims. I do wish the U.S. could deport people like you though.

        There is no way to say the last half of that statement is true or not.
        Our southern border is so porous we literally have no idea of just who (as well as what) is crossing it.
        Well educated Latin Americans? MS-13 gang members? Terrorists? Muslims? Floridians? We have no idea.
        Add those on worker and student visas who simply don’t leave when the visa expires, and the problem gets larger. (There is no effort to keep track of people on such visas.At all.)
        To entertain the idea that invaders can’t possibly enter a country legally is so dumb I have to wonder what could possibly cause someone to consider it. 9/11 should be all that need be said on that matter.

        If you ever left Podunk U.S.A. you would know that Muslims in Europe contribute vastly to the economy as many have their own businesses and that includes Muslim Americans. In MIchigan and in Upper Ohio they own practically all the convenience stores and often in dangerous ends of town to enable poor people to have a place to shop many of which have no transportation. And by the way none are invaders they are there legally in Britain and in the U.S. Where do you live on the planet Mars or have you been transported through time from 1930’s Germany to the present.

          The London Bridge attack failed precisely because they are a more civilized country compared to the U.S. that has thousands of gun deaths a year. In the Bridge attack the terrorists could not even pass the paperwork to get a shotgun and they all got the shit beat out of them when they tried to massacre people in a bar with box cutters. The Bar patrons beat the shit out of them with tables and broken beer bottles. If it had been in U.S. the terrorists would have machine gunned everyone in the bar before they even knew what was going on. Britain equals civilization, the U.S. equals mass murder on a scale unknown in the rest of the civilized world.

      Western world? Most all the Western world doesn’t have 2A. It is us in the US that are the anomaly, and it’s an anomaly worth defending.

    The British never seem to learn. They try to disarm everyone then some power mad invader attacks and they find themselves unable to defend their nation and have to come running to the USA to help them out (see WWI & WWII). They try to promote themselves as intelligent and genteel when they are part of the human species that has exhibited a violent nature for 60,000 years. Nothing will change that.

    Welcome to the Socialist Republic of the U.K. Remember these quotes (taken from elsewhere) so you can be a good S.R.U.K citizen:
    1) Freedom is slavery.

    4) Silence is golden.
    5) Groupthink is truth.

      They do not go bankrupt when they need health care

      They do not go bankrupt when they need life saving drugs nor do they die like dogs in the street because they do not try to ration drugs like the hapless Capitalvanian Slaves in the U.S. the shit hole of the Industrialized world

      They can send their kids to college and they are not then bankrupt the rest of their lives

      Many European countries get 4 weeks vacation the day they start a new job

      and 30 days of holidays while the worker troglodyte slaves at Walmart and the other Gangster Criminal Businesses in the U.S. give the workers zero benefits.

      The Europeans get overtime pay while in the Capitalvanian shit hole of the U.S. they are raped of this right because they only work them part time to avoid paying overtime.

      In many European countries they have a system of government known as TRUE DEMOCRACY which means the majority of people elect the Presidentband every citizen can run for President including immigrant citizens unlike the U.S. that has second class citizens as mandated by the corrupt U.S. Constitution. Too bad the Supreme Court does not ignore that law like the Supreme Court does on all are other Constitutional rights.. In the oligarchy of Capitalvania we have no democracy but do have the corrupt Electoral College, the corrupt gerrymandering and only two political parties both owned through the prostitution bribery called lobbying.

      Give me a Socialistic civilized country any day over the obscenity that has become the U.S. in the last 50 years, oops my mistake I should have said since the founding of Capitalvania which has a Representative Oligarchy Government for the filthy corrupt rich and run by the filthy corrupt rich.

        But they may not get the healthcare when they actually need it. And they don’t get the latest lifesaving drugs because most of them are developed here. Europeans have to wait for the price to come down after the European drug companies who do their research in the US recoup their costs. Europeans also don’t survive cancer as well as Americans do.

        Yes, the fortunate few who get into college don’t pay as much, but the vast majority of Europeans aren’t given an opportunity to go to college.

        So they get four weeks of vacation and? They for the most part have a standard of living equal to the lower third of the US. It’s a trafeoff.

        The CNN school shooting number has been debunked a long time ago. A gang shooting on school property at midnight on Saturday is not a school shooting.

        A small percentage of the population is responsible of America’s violence. Name me a European city that has 100k gang members? Chicago had more gang members than many European countries have in the police and military.

    How convenient for some people who dislike people owning citizens forgetting that the largest mass murder in NYC history (other than 9/11/01) was the “Happyland fire”. The murderer didn’t use an automatic weapon or even a semi-auto one. Instead he used a gas can and a pack of matches.

    The original Anti-fa fought the German Nazi’s in WWII and today they are fighting our own home grown jack booted storm troopers, you know your friends who marched in the candle light parade at Charlottesville.

    Well, what the flip? Some of the finest sporting shotguns have release triggers and they hold no more than two shots. I expect one day to read that Britain is discussing the banning of forks allowing only spoons for eating and all meat will have to be sold in a form that can be cut with the dull edge of a spoon.

    1. avatar Nickel Plated says:

      At this point Britain has just become a curiosity to me. I just want to see how far they can truly push this whole “ban shit for your own good” shtick. How much of it those idiot serfs will actually accept. And the silly-ass workarounds they come up with to comply with these laws.

      I’m genuinely curious to see how they go through everyday life when practically every sharpened piece of metal is banned. Can you imagine literally having no knives? How the fuck do you eat a steak?
      I mean COME ON. Sooner or later they have to realize they’re just being fucked with.

      Anyone want to take bets on the next household item to be banned? I’m thinking it’s a toss up between sticks and fire. They will have literally banned their way back into the stone age.

      What easier population for a modern government to contro… I mean protect, than a bunch of cavemen.

    1. avatar Someone says:

      That’s easy to say. But do you believe that shooters in states like NY, NJ, CA or my home state Illinois voted these politicians in and that we are doing nothing to change the ever tighter gun control abuse?
      There is just too many of big city dwellers, who don’t care about shooting or freedom, but who care a lot about big government handouts in the name of social justice and equality.

        Then the solution is to reconstruct urban gun-culture.

    Even in full gun grabbing mode, British gun enthusiasts want to ‘watch what they say.’ As if that will stop the media and gun grabbers from going full screech.

    Vlad and his ilk invade these blogs, media never met a gun story they couldn’t slant, and the NRA goes on LA Zegna buying sprees with my money, but I’m the problem? LOL.

        Studies done on Europe prove some of their countries have more freedom of the press than we do here in the U.S. Ever hear of the lawsuits we have here for defamation. Be careful what you say here in your freedom of speech U.S. paradise.

        1. avatar jwm says:

          vlad. great misdirection. It’s the individual that has to watch his words for fear of prison in that 3rd world hell hole known as europe. Since the press there is controlled by the .gov they appear to have freedom, but like you are actually nothing more than a propaganda tool.

    It sure seems governments are afraid of the governed. I wonder why that is?

    1. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

      Bullies (individuals or governments) fear that someone will come along and not willingly accept the bullying with the end result of having the bully’s ass kicked to the curb. This is why the bullies of the world try to minimize the chances of their comeuppance by giving themselves all the power.

      It appears that today’s politicians need to have personal Auriga’s whispering in their ears “remember you are only a man (or woman)”.

    “To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the law abiding that their rights depend not on their own conduct but, on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless.”
