Post lifted from Nation of Riflemen -- which see for links
Longtime Readers may remember my wrath when a British lawyer was arrested for having a pen-knife and baton inside his locked briefcase, inside his car's trunk.
Well, he's been found not guilty, and several British cops are outraged-"one law for some, another law for others" seems to be the general feeling. A sample of the feeling can be found in the Comments section in David Copperfield's blog, along with some trenchant comments from Your Humble Narrator. (One cop's comment nearly caused me to have an aneurism:"A clear message needs to be sent that the carrying of all weapons is wrong..."-bloody fool.)
If ever there's a need for a national health treatment, this is it. Not only are the politicians a bunch of hoplophobes, but both police and people seem to be strangely quiescent in the face of such nonsense.....
I should make it clear that PC Copperfield himself is NOT representative of the Plods in his Comments section, as he is not only a good shot, but is also a member of the NRA and is probably more proficient with a gun than any other cop in Britain.
