Shooters hoping for help from the Conservative Party’s MEPs are doomed to disappointment, it appears, after messages to voters revealed that Tories plan to back the upcoming EU gun ban plan.
The European Commission has publicly confessed that its proposal to ban semi-automatic firearms from civilian ownership, touted as a response to the Paris mass murders, “will not tackle the threat” of terrorism.
Yesterday’s EU announcement of the precise wording of its draft gun ban, which unelected legislators want to have in force by July next year, has nothing to do with its stated purpose of targeting terrorists. Instead it is a step on the long, slow march towards banning civilian firearms ownership.
Unelected bureaucrats at the European Union have published their proposals for new gun bans and restrictions in light of the Paris murders. As expected, the proposal amounts to a constructive ban on virtually all semi-auto rifles and will have little or no effect on terrorists and other criminals.
The European Union’s draft proposals for amendments to its Firearms Directive will be published tomorrow as a response to the Paris mass murders, according to watchdog group Firearms United.
European Union bureaucrats want to ban all semi-automatic rifles including .22s, have a total ban on civilians owning full auto firearms and impose a partial ban on internet firearm sales, according to the Finnish government.
