Disarming Britain? Not Really

The England Project bemoans the fact that Brit libertarians don't seem to care that the Blair government is removing (law abiding) Brits' right to bears any sort of arms - including BB guns.

Why does Blair spend energy on this? Surely he doesn't think that an army of BB gunners will roust him out of 10 Downing Street? I guess it's the weak manager syndrome: Control What You Can, Not What You Should.

And if the Brits were to revolt, they wouldn't need guns - just inside information, good battle management software, lots of computer power & secure bandwidth, stellar hacking skills, and great logistics.
