Weapon wielding householders
Last updated: 16 July 2007
One in three people in the UK stash a weapon in their home to protect themselves from intruders
Almost a third of UK residents store a weapon close to their beds to use against intruders.
According to a survey, householders confessed to stashing items such as golf clubs, cricket bats and heavy torches to use in self-defence. [A firearm sure would be a more effective choice than any of these, wouldn't they? :rolleyes:]
Remainder of the story here:
I can't help but think of Winston Churchill (mentioned on another thread today): "We will fight them on the beaches [with our golf clubs], we shall fight on the landing grounds [with our cricket bats], we shall fight in the fields and in the streets [with our heavy torches]...."
Doesn't have quite the same ring, does it? :frown:
