The British Want Their Guns Back

It seems that the British people are reacting to the violence in their country, and the inability of the authorities to either prevent it or to punish the perpetrators. They are realizing that their personal safety is in their own hands. Many in the Boston area came to the same realization after the bombing at the Boston Marathon and the subsequent manhunt for the man who did it.

A Daily Telegraph online poll has revealed that over 80 percent of Brits would rather a repeal on the hand gun ban over various other “new law” choices.

Last Friday the Daily Telegraph, Britain’s most widely read broadsheet newspaper, issued an online poll asking members of the public which proposal they would like to see introduced as a Private Members’ Bill in the UK’s Parliament.

Private Members’ Bills are introduced by Members of Parliament or Peers who are not government ministers.

The choices include term limits for Prime Ministers, a flat tax, a law to encourage the ‘greening’ of public spaces and the repealing of Britain’s hand gun ban. Following the Dunblane massacre in 1996, in which 16 schoolchildren were killed, Parliament passed The Firearms Act of 1997, which essentially banned handguns for the atrocity.

While the poll continues, so far over 80 percent of the 11,000+ respondents have told the Telegraph that they want to see the handgun ban repealed. The news comes as America contemplates its own new laws on gun ownership, with British talk show host Piers Morgan claiming to back a UK-style ban for the United States.”

Update Here is a good example of why the British people no longer trust their leaders to provide for their safety: POLICE sniffer dogs trained to spot terrorists at railway stations may no longer come into contact with Muslim passengers – after complaints that it is against the suspects’ religion.

Update #2

It looks like the police are intentionally ineffective all through Europe:

Since last Sunday, May 19, rioters have taken to the streets of Stockholm’s suburbs every night, torching cars, schools, stores, office buildings and residential complexes. [On Thursday] a police station in Rågsved, a suburb four kilometers south of Stockholm, was attacked and set on fire.

But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.

”We go to the crime scenes, but when we get there we stand and wait,” elaborated Lars Byström, the media relations officer of the Stockholm Police Department. ”If we see a burning car, we let it burn if there is no risk of the fire spreading to other cars or buildings nearby. By doing so we minimize the risk of having rocks thrown at us.”

    I doubt that the Brits will be touching firearms soon. The political elite won’t allow it to happen, regardless of the need or desire of the public. At least they won’t until the EDL starts getting to parliment, then things might change.

        “It’s okay. We understand your frustration at being repressed by the white man’s Christian institutions. It is our sincere hope that you express your disfavor while collecting guaranteed income, free housing, medical care, and food. My jacket? You want my, uh, okay. Here you go. Shoes? Seriously? Oh, okay… I guess you deserve them more than I do. Just don’t hurt me.”

    From a proud, swashbuckling race of raiders and conquerers, the Swedes,(and other Scandinavians) have become milquetoast, feckless, pantywaists, incapable of defending themselves.

      How about everything from the tip of Italy to Norway? That whole continent is being lost to the horde. Socialist Utopia you say?

    They want em back, aint gonna happen. They need to start underground manufacture/importation before it is to late and they are cowed to much to even raise their eyes to look at the muslim tyrants.

    Tyrants, cowards and criminals prefer unarmed peasants.

    Maybe the DOJ w/ the dumbazz Holder could be suckered into doing a Fast & Furious deal for these poor defenseless Brits?

      He wouldn’t authorize the sale of weapons to an ally. What are you thinking?

      He sees the U.S. & the U.K. as the oppressors of the downtrodden. We are the colonial, imperialist pigs his mentors warned him about.
