Some of this topic is not new, but it is worth knowing.

Tony Martin was convicted of homicide in Great Britain in April, 2000. It is a well known case among those who believe in the right to keep and bear arms.

On August 20, 1999, Martin was awakened late at night by noises downstairs in his farmhouse. Startled, he grabbed his shotgun and started down a dark, unlit stairway. When a flashlight flashed his face, Martin let loose a shot and fell down. He ran back to his bedroom. One burglar was mortally wounded. Another escaped to a neighbor's house. Police arrested Martin, who was convicted of homicide and sentenced to life imprisonment. His sentence and conviction were reduced by an appellate court. After 5 years imprisonment, he was released. Martin had been denied parole, because he was deemed "a threat to burglars." He was sued by the burglar and forced into a settlement. It is a lesson about what happens in a country where citizens depend on government for health care, education, and even self defense.

British Farmer Tony Martin, convicted of homicide.
Denied parole, because he might be a "threat to Burglars."

You can get an accurate, detailed account at the following link: The Tony Martin File

What is new is that in another case a British Prosecutor recently found a way to avoid the twisted rationale of Martin's prosecution.

Kenneth Faulkner will not be charged for shooting a burglar.
He only wounded the man who burgarized his home twice and stole his guns.

73 year old Kenneth Faulkner was not charged for shooting a 22 year old burglar in the leg, but only because the burglar and accomplices had stolen guns from Faulkner the previous month, and it was reasonable for Faulkner to believe the burglar might be armed. Michael Auty, prosecuting, said the "primary reason" that the CPS decided not to charge Mr Faulkner was that Rae had been left with only pellet wounds in his lower leg. David Davis, the shadow home secretary, commented: "The law needs considerably more clarification and should be re-balanced in favour of householders and against criminals." See, Farmer who shot burglar backed by judge.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the British are "subjects", not citizens. As such they do not have the protection of the Constitution or the enjoyment of the inalienable rights that it (the Constitution) clarifies and affirms.

In reality, they have the same inalienable rights as these are God given, their government just sees fit to deny them to their slaves, errrrrrrrrr, subjects.

The Founding Fathers of this nation were wise indeed. :salute: GG

Hail Brittania!

Hail Brittania!

Britain did not trust these two with firearms, and for good reason!

Had they been armed, the seniors probably would have killed the burglars, who beat them senseless instead. See, Vulnerable pensioners need the self-defence law changed.
