On This Day



On This Day… Britain’s Right To Bear Arms

Written by: George Chittenden : 08 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 13th March, back in 1996 when the Dunblane school massacre took place at Dunblane Primary School near Stirling, Scotland. Thomas Hamilton marched into the school and opened fire, killing sixteen children and their teacher, before turning the gun on himself.

To this day, it remains the deadliest mass shooting in British history. Hamilton was a Scout leader in the 1980s but quit after allegations of improper behaviour. He also had a history of drug-abuse. The Dunblane massacre resulted in stricter gun laws being passed in Great Britain.

The British public called for a ban on private ownership of handguns and an official inquiry. As a result, two new Firearms Acts were passed, outlawing private ownership of most handguns in Great Britain.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
