In simpler terms, if your home is intruded upon, and you use deadly force in defence, then you are well within your rights. (I don't know if these
laws exist in England
No we do not have the right to self-defence. There was a case a few years ago where an old guy shot an armed robber who broke into his house and shot
at him. The old-man was taken to court and given a jail sentence. The robber got away scot-free.

Great post. God help the British, I hope they can win their right of of self defense back
It has been many years since we lost that right. We were promised safer streets when it was taken since then violent crime has gone through the
In my opinion we should have drastic changes to self-defence and gun laws. Ive used various guns although I and I'm not too bad a shot with them and
would greatly like to be able to defend myself and my belongings with one, although I probably wouldnt get away with a L98 cadet variant of the SA80
that I'm used to least of all a automatic variant(they have some kick). L98 rifle.
The fox hunting ban talked about in the video was just a con to keep morons who don't understand how things work in the countryside voting for Labour
and to keep the animal rights nutters happy. If I were you Americans I would watch carefully in case your rights start to ebb away. You don't notice
at first you think what youre signing on for is good then one day they turn around with a big blow to you and you can't stop them because of what
you've agreed to earlier.
Technically you can still own a gun in Britain but the number of laws licences commitments agreements requirements etc. make it impossible for all but
a few. I only have access to weaponry through shooting clubs and shotgun ranges, I have no hope of having my own let alone being allowed to defend me
and my property with it.

The days of coup d'etat in the UK are long gone. We speak, we VOTE now.
You have a foolish amount of faith in voting in my opinion the Labour government is well known for vote rigging.

To the poster who said that there are cameras on every street corner in the UK ........ BOLLOCKS!. It is utter Bollocks.
Excuse me but have you tried looking around in a city on the British mainland. You cant step out your door without being caught on cam. And the very
idea of going anywhere without having your picture taken dozens of times is laughable. Even the buses have cameras on them now, even school buses. And
yes that rally may be old but the problem is still a problem. Also please mind your language.

If everyone had guns, as i say, it would be madness here
I have to disagree with you on this. If I want to shoot someone I can go get a gun. If I want to defend myself I cant. The law doesnt stop criminals
from having guns because they are criminals and therefore ignore the law. Therefore the ones who would gain from bringing back our guns would be those
who wish to defend themselves.

If a person takes a gun safety course and learns how to use a gun it is and should be there right to have one.
Totally agree with you on this.
