Welcome back to the Talking Lead Show episode: TLP 192 British Gun Laws Suck. Last week one of our Jackwagons was a guy that tried to smuggle 6 suppressor in to the US from the UK. Alan Easton, one of our Leadheads from across the pond and previous guest, wanted to give us some additional insight and a Brit’s point of view on this story.
While gun laws in the UK are extremely oppressive and absurd compared to our 2nd Amendment rights we have in the US they did get one aspect correct, suppressors. In the UK you can buy suppressors (or as they call them “moderators”) over the counter and go on your merry way. Suppressors are legal in the US however the cost and hassle associated with purchasing one makes it difficult. Alan shares some first hand experiences with UK suppressors and goes into some details on the highly restrictive gun laws which put UK citizens’ safety and lives in jeopardy.
On the heels of the recent Islamic extremist attack in London, Alan and Lefty discuss the latest facts from some recent news stories. Alan fill us in with his inside info and explains how the knife laws in England work against UK citizens in self defense situations.
We also learn about Alan’s newest hobby Citroën Saxo Racing and how his new hobby helps raise money for UK’s youth. The Citroen Saxo was a supermini car produced by the French manufacturer Citroën from 1996 to 2003. It was also sold in Japan as the Citroën Chanson. It shared many engine and body parts with the Peugeot 106
