Alot of people make their own. I know people that cast their own slugs, reruse brass.

The powder and primers would be more of a pain but not impossible to make.

Interesting timeline... seems like mental disorder or history of violence is the common thing.

These stores need to stop thinking about profits and start being more strict. Just like when banks were handing out loans to anyone and without money down. No good.

They gaven't banned guns in most countries, they have merely restricted the caibre of new guns and changed the bullets legally available for sale.

You can still buy an AR-15 in the UK but it will be a lever release gas piston AR-15 with .223 calibre version.

Guns you can legally buy in the UK - Business Insider

Video of a UK legal gas piston AR15 in .223 at Bisley in Surrey, England.

The emotionally driven left is the kid at counter freaking out cause mommy wont give them the candy before checking out.
You cant control or stop crime. Candy is no longer available, find something else to whine about.

My favorite thing is when the conservatives who scream about supporting the troops and are mad that people protest the police then insist that they need guns because they may need to kill all the troops and police.

Also not happening.

The AR is the most popular rifle in America.

You'll have better luck banning motherhood.

The passage of New York’s so-called SAFE Act (“Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013”) drastically changed the landscape for lawful gun owners in the Empire State. Besides new restrictions on commonly owned semi-automatic rifles the state calls “assault weapons,” bans on magazines, and limits on the number of rounds that could be loaded into a gun, the Act imposed a requirement that handgun license holders be “recertified” every five years, with all licensees completing the initial recertification by January 31, 2018. The recertification form requires that the licensee disclose his or her “name, date of birth, gender, race, residential address, social security number, [and] firearms possessed by such license holder,” along with the listed identifying details (make, model, caliber, and serial number). (“Firearm” under the applicable New York law means a handgun or other gun of a size which may be concealed upon the person.)

A failure to recertify operates as an automatic revocation of the license. Possession of a “firearm” without a valid license is a criminal offense, and the revocation makes the person ineligible to apply for or renew a license. Once a license is revoked, state law mandates that every gun owned or possessed by the licensee be “surrendered” to a law enforcement agency. A New York State Police field guide on the SAFE Act, prepared by attorneys for the Division of State Police, unequivocally instructs officers that when “a licensee becomes ineligible to hold a pistol permit, the Safe Act requires the person to surrender all firearms to police, including all rifles and shotguns for which no license or registration is required.” (Emphasis in the original.)

Should the person fail to comply by turning in every gun, the SAFE Act (codified as NY Penal Law § 400.00(11)(c)) not only authorizes but requires that police officers confiscate such property: the guns “shall be removed and declared a nuisance and any police officer or peace officer acting pursuant to his or her special duties is authorized to remove any and all such weapons.”
States do not have the right to violate the bill of rights. Nothing legal about this, no way it will stand.
