For another glimpse of the way that Britain’s draconian gun control laws work, check out this story:
“A Farmer was being quizzed by police today after shooting at a suspected burglar.
Police said the farmer, 73 – who has been burgled twice in recent months – had spotted a burglar at a detached garage at Keys Farm, in Ockbrook, at 6am. A Derbyshire Police spokesman said: “The offender fled from the farm. During the incident the farmer fired a shotgun and a 22-year-old man was later found a short distance away, suffering from minor pellet injuries to his left leg.”
The victim was taken to the Derbyshire Royal Infirmary for treatment. Both the farmer and the victim are now under arrest.”
Well, of course. The farmer – a septuagenarian and two-time burglary victim – was clearly a menace to society.
Meanwhile, ‘real’ gun crime, you know, murders, robberies, and things like that, have continued to soar, and the only people who are disarmed are those looking to defend themselves.
Blair’s Britain: Soft on crime, tough on its victims.
