Munchkin Wrangler talks about the affect that the aversion to righteous self defense by the government creates... It's a sad state of affairs in the UK and it's coming to a street near you.
Here's the link to the full story...and a quote:
Gun control proponents talk about preventing “gun crime”, but they don’t care about the crime, only about the guns. They talk about the innocent victims of shootings, but they are willing to write off people like my friend Mark as “collateral damage”, an acceptable trade-off for not having those icky guns and knives around. Better to have productive and law-abiding citizen being beaten up and robbed, than to see the attackers driven off by someone with a gun. That’s what they really mean when they use the mantra “If it only saves one life“. It doesn’t work in reverse, you see.
