    Schoolchildren in London are eligible for 125,000 free tickets for the 2012 Olympics next sumer, but any event that involves a firearm will be excluded from the massive giveaway.

    Why, you ask, would anyone choose to hide storied events and world class competitors from children’s eyes?

    Because City Hall and Olympic Organizers are afraid of an anti-gun backlash. That’s right — the powers that be in London won’t subject kids to such bloodsports as Skeet and Trap shooting. The London Evening Standard reported yesterday on the “Ticketshare” decision, and the window it has given into current British views on guns in society.

    Hey, I've got an idea. Let's keep copying Europe. First their crappy health care system, then their entitlement-stifled stagnant economy, and finally their nanny-state gun ban.

    It's hard to expect much from a country that forces their pistol team to practice in France.

    Not a surprise since the Mayor is an admitted Communist. They don't call him Red Ken for nothing. Him being elected Mayor tells you something about the mentality of the people...Bill

    Hi guys - I run the ShootClay site listed above - and am the person being interviewed on NRAnews - thanks for posting the links to this important issue and your subsequent support.

    I wanted to correct one thing in the thread above - Londons Mayor is not (currently) a communist, that was Ken Livingston, who was the previous Mayor - also less communist more marxist/socialist.

    Our current Mayor is Boris Johnson, a Conservative, Eton educated - and incidentally a man who voted AGAINST a hunting ban in the UK.

    That's why we were confused about the decision reported and we have written to him for clarification.

    We are still waiting for a response.

    Nice to meet you all - Matt @ ShootClay

    Britain is a has-been third world Orwellian nanny state full of bleating sheeple.
