    Here you go the cops there don't have guns right? What happens when they break into a Muslim sleeper cells home and they get blown up or taken hostage.

    The hits just keep on coming over there. I spent 4 years stationed in England before I retired last year. That place is a joke with there laws concerning weapons. While I was stationed there, they had amnesty boxes set up throughout all the villages so people could get rid of their illegal knives and or guns. Of course, who do you think used these amnesty boxes, the GG's. However there were BG's caught trying to break into these boxes to retrieve the items turned in.

    In the housing estate I lived at, I had to call the Bobbie's 4 times because I witness kids breaking into neighbors houses. They would actually go through their loot on next to the house they just robbed while I'm standing there on the phone with the police describing them to a "T". They didn't care over there and it was mostly because they knew no one was armed to include the Bobbies.

    Anyways, I'm glad I'm off of Gilligan's Island now and back in the great ole USA.

    Two things.

    First, what are they really trying to do? Do they have entrapment laws in the UK? Because it seems to me like some power hungry politicain wants to crack down and catch homeowners in the act of defending themselves so he can throw them in jail and make an example of the "cowboys" who think they have that right.

    Second, yeah, that sounds like a brilliant idea. Focus on the victim, not the problem. Next thing you know they will be issueing tickets and citations for leaving your door unlocked. (raising revenue to pay for the beurocracy that is in place to deal with you after the crime you are facilitating is committed). Brilliant, once again, it is not the criminals we should deal with or try to stop, or increase prison time for; we should inconvenience and scare the "tea and crumpets" out of innocent citizens!!

    This is incredibly stupid. What if they startle some old folks and they have a heart attack! Or if the officer gets cracked over the head with a cricket bat....do they just say "oops, you passed" *** are they thinking? Maybe this is the wrong term but "entrapment" comes to mind. test and unsuspecting persons security without their knowledge and they will likely try to defend themselves...against the police? Good way to make problems where there don't need to be any.

    The day they kill someone via heart attack or similar, they'll be pretty bloody happy with themselves, I guess.

    They might well run into a person who refused the government's silly confiscations. Or a criminal who didn't get the memo.

    What a dumb idea, threatening people to see how far it goes.
