Nanny Statism in the Extreme

Yes, we all know about England’s gun laws. Yes, we all know they are even cracking down on drinking. Yes, we all call them the nanny state and have for years.

But I bet you didn’t know it went this far*:

In England at least, you have limited choices; for a wedding to be legally binding it must be conducted in a licensed building. This effectively gives you three choices: a registry office, another licensed building for a civil wedding service or a religious building registered to carry out marriages (i.e. a church). Further restrictions relate to weddings taking place in churches as it must either be your parish church (effectively your local church) or a church with which you have a ’special connection’ and for which you must have a ’special license’. Unlike America, you cannot get married outside although it is possible to have a civil ceremony first and exchange vows again outside.

You can’t even get married outside? That’s nuts!

*Before you ask, I wasn’t researching locations for anything specific. It was just a click through kind of find and I just started reading.

    Yeah,
    I bet Bitter was loading the Glock while you were typing that. LOL!

    Gun Control is aptly titled because it is about exactly that: Control. When I taught civics I always told my students that your rights are taken in this manner. Property first, Liberty second, Life third. In the case with England they took all three with one law- Gun Control!
    Well Britain, welcome to subjugation!
