UK Home Office: We will register thousands of deactivated firearms with no database

Why?

Given that a Filipino gunsmith working with scrap steel & only basic tools can make a Colt 1911 in two weeks. Armed with a cheap CNC milling machine a complete engineering novice could probably bang one out in half that time. Detailed blueprints are out there and not hard to find for most firearms. Yet the govt is worried about people attempting to reactivate some knock-off victorian flintlock or Granddads welded solid Luger.. go figure...
