Gun collectors could be forced to apply for a licence and undergo background checks even if they only own deactivated weapons if European Union (EU) officials get their way. Critics have called the proposed legislation “excessive,” and have accused the EU of harassing responsible gun owners.
Of course they are; that's so much easier than actually going after bad guys.
Plus this gives them an excuse to further disarm the peasants:
EU officials have deemed the last round of regulations, introduced in
2008, to be inadequate, claiming that they leave Europe “vulnerable to
criminal activity.” European leaders have agreed, vowing in the wake of
the Paris attacks to “rapidly examine” the new proposals with the
intention of approving them at a summit in February. The new laws would
then come into effect in July, The reported.
Borrowing from Uncle: "Gun control is what politicians do instead of something."
"Remember to register your drone!"
And yes, they are being sued.
From Sarah Hoyt, on the situation in Europe(that may be coming here):
One of Germany’s bureaucrats admitted that yes, this was caused by a bunch of unassimilated Arab males, that it was obviously coordinated, but then went on to sneer that it was all somehow the fault of “right wingers.”
What he’s doing makes sense in his world, just like the roll left of
magazines and newspapers used to make sense. You do what you have to do
to attain the next level of the ladder. And if he came out in public
and said there seemed to be a coordinated “rape Jihad” going on without
also saying that “racism” or the “right wing” were worse he’d not have a
career left. Or at least, not in the short term.
It is rather telling that Germany turned the water cannons and gas on
their own nationals protesting rape that they couldn’t be bothered to
turn on the people actually doing the rape.
Isn't it, though?
Damn, you'd almost think those animals could adapt to changing conditions, or something.
The new study not only finds polar bears survived ice-free periods in
the Arctic, but there’s no evidence of any other marine species going
extinct over the last 1.5 million years. That even goes for walruses,
which have made news lately for massive beachings in the Arctic some say are being driven by global warming.
What’s most interesting is that they also claim species were likely
worse off during periods when the Arctic and neighboring continents were
covered by massive ice sheets.
