    Farmer menaced with death threats by gang... and police confiscate her shotguns.

    Things seem to be going down-hill in the Mother Country:

    Having confronted travellers cutting down trees on her farm, terminally-ill Tracy St Clair Pearce found herself subjected to a terrifying ordeal.

    Some of the group pelted her with rocks while a youth threatened to slit her throat and slaughter her cattle.

    When she dialled 999 she expected the full weight of the law to be on her side.

    Instead, however, police officers criticised her for inflaming the situation and confiscated her legally held shotguns even though they had been locked away in a cabinet at home throughout the incident.

    So sad how things have become in the UK, subjects required to cower in fear while criminals do as they please.

    Angry

    That's why the UK have the problems they have. From riots over not getting on the free money for doing nothing train to immigration by muslims who take over whole sections of towns where the police are afraid to go to taking the side of these "traverlers" over a landowner and taking her lawfully owned shotguns for no reason except they have the right to do so given to them by a goverment that feels they have to take care of their "subjects" because their "subjects" can't take care of themselves.

    My wife is from Devon and holds dual citizenship but she has no desire to visit the UK anymore. She has her Florida Concealed Weapons Permit and carries a S&W 638 and pepper spray something that nobody but the police and criminals can do in the UK. Such a beautiful country being run by a goverment that has no clue what a free society is all about. My rant !

    I wonder if the outcome would have been the same had it been the King's/Queen's cows.

    What has happened is/happening in the UK is a trasvesty, on the common folk of that country.

    Here is a fairly comprehensive video, echoing the sentiments of the folks there

    YouTube - England Gun Ban Update
    At 2:39, a member of Parliment is saying their laws are ludicrous.

    I wonder if her being "terminally-ill" and "who has been given months to live" had anything to do with their decsion/excuse to confiscate her legal shotguns ? Thinking she would say the hell with it and handle the problem her self ? Maybe she has another under the floorboards

    I can't help but sarcastically think that maybe the good guys should start breaking the laws so that the police would protect them? What would they do then???
