It’s A Good Thing Subjects of the UK are Forbidden to Defend Themselves

Someone might have been hurt. Oh, wait… Family ‘terrorised’ in East Kilbride machete raid – The Scotsman

A man was struck on the leg with a machete and held in a bedroom with his wife and son while robbers ransacked their home.

Eliminating/adding restrictions on one weapon, didn’t eliminate crime, just shifted he weapons used. And restricting self-defense means the whole damn country is a defenseless-victim-zone.

The authorities are planning to respond by outlawing even more inanimate objects. This time next year I expect they will be outlawing (or requiring registration for) lengths of iron pipe.

Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is one definition of insanity.
