You’d think that guns in (Formerly Great) Britain would be so rare that people would take care not to take them to the courthouse when visiting on “business.”
Seven firearms, about 50 replica guns and nearly 3,000 knives have been confiscated in courts in the east of England over the past three years, the BBC can reveal.
After a Freedom of Information request, the government told the BBC between the financial years 2009 and 2011 officials confiscated 24,695 items.
I think we can safely assume that all of the guns confiscated were handguns, which are totally banned in (Formerly Great) Britain. I think we can further assume that the guns weren’t carried there by the barristers. I think that they’d look silly with funny wigs and Glocks. Maybe with flintlock pistols, though. That’d be cool.
