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.
