On my post "Control of the people" one commenter said:
"WFW, the Cricket Bat was used to good effect by one small shopkeeper during the recent riots. It has form in anti rioter situations.
Seriously, I used to frequent pubs where the various landlords were known (amongst other variations) to keep a loaded shotgun (Blanks wadded with sand) and a cut down pickaxe handle behind the bar. As far as the more peaceful pub goers were concerned these were simply 'cultural' weapons for the rowdier Saturday nights.
The simple knowledge that these things were available was a deterrent."
To which I replied:
"BS: Nothing more satisfying than a good 'four' or 'six', is there..... :)
Following on from your pub landlords example, were it known that people could lawfully carry a gun and that unacceptable behaviour might lead to the attacker getting his head blown off, it might just reduce the crime rate......?"
A few minutes later, I notice this on EUReferendum...........
Nice to see there is a 'tried and tested' system in operation - now, when do we get it.......?
Once again, just asking........................
