For some odd reason I have concern about our Brothers where Great Briton Used to Be so I did a quick news search. Found Two Stories. Click on quote for full stories:
Its not like the Island is THAT big, and its not like it isn’t an ISLAND! WTF??
Not the first time either:
The search for Raoul Moat has evoked memories of a previous manhunt in which a gunman managed to evade police for 18 days by going to ground in rural England. Barry Prudom, 37, persistently outwitted police in North Yorkshire after shooting dead two policemen and a civilian 28 years ago.
Prudom, 37, who also had a grudge against police, went on the run after killing Pc David Haigh, 29, by shooting him in the head as he was conducting car checks at a picnic site near Harrogate on June 17, 1982. Up to 1,000 officers were mobilised to search for Prudom, an outdoor and military enthusiast, but no trace was found of him until he turned up in Girton, Notts., five days later and killed civilian George Luckett before stealing his car.
The story goes on, but frankly its too depressing for me to keep quoting….
Advocates for civilian disarment speak glowingly about the protective umbrella of the Police, and of course if their bans actually work **Hint: they won’t** you will be much safer, as there will be less Gun Death!
Now I won’t disparage police. They do good work, and are a necessity for a healthy society of laws. But just like I don’t expect the fire department to rescue me, and save my property from fire, I don’t expect the police to ride in like the Calvary from some foolish Hollywood movie and save me from violent assault.
Nope, I have fire extinguishers throughout my house, and I have an escape plan, and alternate plan to get out of my home if its overtaken by fire. *FYI if I needed yet another escape route, don’t these things look cool?* I also keep defensive arms handy in case of violent attack. I also have plans in the event that I am attacked without a gun. I will never allow myself to be a victim.
Police are great, but don’t have them be your one-and-only plan. One must ALWAYS have backup plans!
