Shall Not Be Questioned tells us the tale of home invaders being repelled by armed British
citizens subjects, who must claim their firearms discharged ‘accidentally’ to avoid murder charges (!)
This, from a country with a previous heritage of fine gun-making and marksmanship, as well as hunting and self-defense law.
It’s a damn shame that the same nation that brought us the Sten, Webley-Fosbery, James Purdey and the venerable Lee Enfield, as well as venues like Sandhurst, has fallen to the Progressive-gun-control-drivel. Not only is owning a working firearm extremely difficult, but acting in one’s own defense in one’s own home is prohibited, as well.
Unless, apparently, it was an accidental discharge.
“Blimey, Officer! Must be a defect of some kind. Went off 8 times, then I reloaded, thinking it had corrected itself, and it emptied yet again!”
