Abstract :

The Dunblane massacre of Mar 13, 1996 aimed to mobilize unprecedented public support for gun control in England. The event resulted in the passage of the Firearms Amendment Act 1997. The aftermath of the massacre was accompanied by the creation of the Snowdrop Appeal by many concerned families in central Scotland. A key feature of the appeal in the early stages was its apolitical nature.
