Brits and their priorities
, that's a bit harsh. You've got to remember, England is a fairly small place, there's not endless land for hunters to
roam about shooting stuff to eat. There's only a few legitimate reasons to own a gun in England. Some land workers, ie, farmer, game keeper etc and
sports shooters, of which there are very few. Apart from those folk with a reason to own a gun, the only other guns about are in the hands of
criminals. I'm glad we have strict gun laws. I don't know a single person that knows anyone who has been shot. I want to keep it that way.
There's plenty of Brits who would have 'detained' the thief, without the use of a gun and probably more still, who would have kicked the daylights
out of him, without a gun. This happened on a late night train don't forget, that sort of train is usually quite empty at that time of night. The guy
filming obviously didn't feel comfortable with having a fight, he was an Aussie anyways.
Don't tar a whole country with the same brush eh, you make
yourself look a bit silly.
