Terrified diners in London told Tuesday how rioters brandishing baseball bats smashed their way into a top restaurant and forced them to hand over wedding rings, cell phones and wallets.

Thank God for the Second Amendment!
I’m sure the constables will be arresting the kitchen staff in short order.
Whereas, if they would have had a gun there wouldn't have been much of a fight.
But hey, they got the government they deserve, and all of the rules that go with it.
Coming soon to the U.S. if we don't wake the hell up.
“He told me to take off my rings and grabbed my hand, trying to yank them off. His friend tried to help too, but the rings wouldn’t come off and I just yelled at him that I’d take them off myself. In hindsight, now that I know that gun control is so fierce in England and he only had bat, I should have held on to my rings better and maybe slugged him in the face.”

They should have listened to Enoch Powell.
Hard to imagine the scene but we better prepare for it mentally....
Couldn’t they just talk and negotiate with these poor misguided yutes?
people who are stupid as dirt, not surprisingly end up
in a bad situation.
during riots, there are some places to avoid.
