6000% increase in aluminum baseball bat sales in UK
Brits arm themselves in face of PC government's failure | The Tennessean | tennessean.com
Just a peak into a world with no 2nd Amendment. I personally skipped the baseball bat and upped the amount of Buckshot I have in storage.
Governments like to imagine they have a monopoly on the use of force. Not true. If the police are not there when you need them, itís up to you. But Brits do not enjoy Second Amendment-type protections; and those who have used firearms in self-defense have sometimes found themselves in jail.
This explains why sales of baseball bats in the U.K. suddenly increased by over 6,000 percent last week. While government fails, the market provides.

It is sad what the UK is reduced to right now but it provides an interesting question which is better the heavier strike slower recovery of wood or fast multiple strike capability of an aluminum tube. In all honesty my preference is a 3lb axe handle without the head. to each their own.
