Bloody stupidity. By the way, our paramedics carry their own firearms, they aren't supplied.

We used to carry the big Mag Lights as an informal self defense item, being milled out of aluminium and having anything between 3 to 5 "D" size cells they were pretty hefty and a tap from one of them could discourage an aggressive individual.
It is frowned upon by the powers that be as they don't like the idea of the bad publicity they may get if one of us were to defend themselves with a "weapon".
I did speak with a senior Police officer once who said they believed we should be allowed to carry pepper spray for self defence.
And pigs will fly!

It was plod who got pepper spray and stun guns banned in the UK. The old boys club of ACPO put their oar in. I know this for a fact, I was a firearm dealer at the time, plod paid me a visit to see if I had such items in stock.

The UK used to be a nation of such bad ass folks. Folks that conquered the wilds of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. A nation in which such names like Enfield, Vickers, and Webley meant tools to defend one's self and the ability to fight the enemy. The idea that if you work hard that you will achieve anything you want. Now it has become a nation of welfare rats and sissies.

I have the utmost respect for those serving in the UK Armed Forces.... but the good folks of the UK need to get the hell out of there and come to the USA. We might be the lost colony over the pond.... but we'll welcome are Brit cousins with open arms (as long as they don't import that socialist crap that is infecting the UK).

I reckon a huge number of us would love to move to the US.

At least you can vote, defend yourself in your home, and you can own a firearm (depending on where in the USA) without nothing more then a quick background check. No permit, registration, police inspections, etc....

The USA is the last bastion of freedom on Earth. My family came here and no where else from Communist Cuba for a reason.

I am not complaining, I do love this country, just see it as my duty to remain an aware and involved citizen.
