Boris Johnson wrote an article opposing gun controls in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in British history.
Writing for The Telegraph in 1997, Johnson described a ban on handguns introduced after sixteen children and one teacher were shot dead in the Dunblane Massacre as “pointless”.
He implied that men forced to surrender their weapons were being emasculated, saying “Nanny is confiscating their toys. It is like one of those vast Indian programmes of compulsory vasectomy.”
Johnson lamented that, “The owners of all the 160,000 handguns are penalized for the dementia of a couple of their number, and because no one, in the current climate, dare speak for them.”
The Red Roar has obtained a full copy of Johnson’s article that was reprinted in Canada’s Calgary Herald which can be read below.
