Uh oh. Looks like HMG is going to try to bypass the need for actual trials to deal with undesirables. No doubt we'll be hearing from Liberty, the Wicked Witch and the whole rest of the civil rights ball of wax, protesting the despicable short-circuting of the rule of law.
Oops - perhaps not, after all -it involves GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNS:
11.41 Where the police have been called to an incident, which
involved the misuse of an air weapon, the FCC recommends that the
forfeiture of the weapon should be considered irrespective of whether
criminal proceedings are instituted. [Paragraph 9.22].
Now, isn't that nice ? Notice what's missing - it surely should be alleged misuse of an air weapon. Apparently, innocent until proven guilty doesn't apply where GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNS are concerned.
The only circumstances where the Filth won't proceed with criminal proceedings in relation to a air weapon are.... well, forget it, these days Mr Plod could bust the Archbishop of Canterbury for carrying a water pistol and the Liberal establishment and the MSM would still hail him as a hero. Ergo, this legislation will only be used in cases where even the most Liberal of judges can't hold his nose long enough not to throw out the case. Which means Kool Aid drinking hacks will be allowed to seize private property with nary a hint of oversight. Meanwhile, our alleged civil rights watchdogs are screaming and ranting about lack of massages in Gitmo.
