A former soldier has become the latest victim of the predatory UK police state after he was arrested and convicted by a jury for handing in a shotgun to his local police station after discovering it in his garden. The man faces 5 years in jail due to draconian gun control laws that dictate members of the public cannot even touch a gun without being charged with “possession of a firearm”.

“Paul Clarke, 27, was found guilty of possessing a firearm at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday – after finding the gun and handing it personally to police officers on March 20 this year. The jury took 20 minutes to make its conviction, and Mr Clarke now faces a minimum of five year’s imprisonment for handing in the weapon,” reports Surrey Today.

In a statement read out in court, Mr Clarke said: “I didn’t think for one moment I would be arrested.”



“I thought it was my duty to hand it in and get it off the streets.”

Clarke discovered that the gun had been discarded in a bin liner at the bottom of his garden, which backs on to public fields, and called Chief Superintendent Adrian Harper to let him know he would be visiting the police station.

When Clarke removed the gun from the bin liner and placed it on the table facing towards the wall, he was instantly arrested for possession of a firearm.

Despite the fact that Surrey Police issued a leaflet encouraging people to “report found firearms,” Clarke was told by the prosecuting attorney that his honest intentions were irrelevant and that possession of a firearm was a “strict liability” charge.

“Just by having the gun in his possession he was guilty of the charge, and has no defence in law against it, he added.”

Clarke now faces 5 years in jail for attempting to perform a law-abiding action by turning in the gun to police.
