    The funny thing is that U.S. and U.K. laws about self-defense are largely similar. The killer difference is what constitutes a "reasonable man" in the eyes of the respective courts.

    He said: ‘Burglars, knowing that they could be killed, might be more likely to carry weapons and/or use extreme violence. So it would be wholly counterproductive. The law on self-defence works well and has done for years.’
    Seriously, this is how they think.

    Leading barrister Paul Mendelle, QC, chairman of the Criminal Bar Association ... said: ‘Burglars, knowing that they could be killed, might be more likely to carry weapons and/or use extreme violence. So it would be wholly counterproductive. The law on self-defence works well and has done for years.’
    Put two people in a room. A bad guy, and a good guy. Arm the bad guy with a firearm. Tell the good guy he's got his finger and prayer book, only, and that telephone over yonder. See who "wins."

    THAT is what the schmucks in Parliament have achieved. They've cleared the field of resistance, such that criminals are the only ones armed, the only ones protected by the law, the only ones likely to come out of criminal attacks with their lives.

    The U.K. laws that criminalize upstanding "subjects" and self-defense have turned crime into a growth industry, at the expense of every common Joe.

    And this guy is actually saying it's all "working well."

    It seems Parliament is working hard, alright. Hard, on behalf of criminals everywhere.

    If every "subject" were treated more like citizens, with a say into whether their lives mean squat when confronted by criminals, then we'd truly see what the numbers would be. Yes, arm the entire country of people twice over, and you'll see shootings go through the roof. As well we we should see that occur, while the vile and evil predators are eliminated. That is, at least until the criminals get the idea that they're going to be gunned down and shoved in the hole so long as they continue to prey on innocents.

    Yes, a few of them are going to arm themselves. Perhaps most of them. But then, thousands will be erased by upstanding people who refuse to go without a fight. And that's as it should be.

    Hmph. No wonder things are so bad.
