Expect more of this (not that it’s likely to do much good). . . After London Attack, British Gun Activists Call For Right To Bear Arms – “British activists are advocating for looser gun laws in response to the Saturday night ISIS terror attack that killed seven people and wounded nearly fifty others in central London. ‘These tragedies may have been the eye opener to just how ineffective our laws are,’ Dave Ewing, a representative from the gun ownership advocacy group, Firearms-UK, told Vocativ. Firearms-UK, along with other advocacy groups like Arm UK Citizens, Legalise Guns in the UK, and England Wants Its Guns Back, have flocked to social media to slam the British government for maintaining harsh restrictions on gun ownership in response to the attack at London Bridge, which was the third terror attack on British soil in as many months.”
In the mean time, this is what happens to a disarmed populace . . . London attack: Football fan shouted ‘F*** you, I’m Millwall’ and took on knife-wielding terrorists with his bare fists – “A football fan reportedly yelled “F**k you, I’m Millwall” as he single-handedly took on the three knife-wielding London terror attackers armed with nothing more than his fists. Roy Larner has already been hailed a hero, with a petition launched for him to be awarded the George Cross medal for his actions in the Black and Blue steakhouse on Saturday night. In fighting back, the 47-year-old Millwall fan gave dozens of others who were in the Borough Market restaurant the chance to escape.”
Which at least partially explains why . . . North Carolina, Michigan press for vast expansion of gun rights – The North Carolina and Michigan state legislatures are both set to take up bills aimed at loosening laws regulating gun owners, an intensifying trend across the country where Republicans control the vast majority of state governments. … The trend toward loosening gun rights has spread across the nation, as a historically high number of state legislatures are controlled by Republicans. In April, Iowa approved a massive expansion of gun rights, which included granting citizens the right to defend themselves with force, even “deadly force,” in public if they feel threatened.
