The Government we deserve

Tony Martin wants to be an MP. Oh dear God.

Now, it’s vitally important that people have the right to defend their home, family and person. As far as I can tell, the law allows for that- ‘reasonable force’ etc., though that’s a phrase that is wide open to interpretation- but it correctly doesn’t give carte blanche to gun down anyone on your property. Which is probably what the drafters of Martin’s law want.

Tony Martin is not a hero. He’s either (pick the one you find least offensive) a criminal who illegally held and used a pump action shotgun, a murderer or a man so disturbed that even the NRA would have thought twice before letting him have a gun.

Rant over.
