That’s it, keep on demonizing your willing protectors and you will find that they aren’t willing anymore.
That's the real problem here. The fact that a jury would convict a war hero speaks to a larger social problem.
Coming soon to America!
Britain is no longer in touch with her roots, history or ideals. But then neither is ancient Rome, Greece, Egypt or China. The death of a civilization is terribly poignant.
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot.
This is how the British government (and sadly, our government to a similar extent) thanks those who have given so much for us.
Burn, Britannia, burn, on the funeral pyre of your empire. Formerly-Great Britain is now nothing but an Islamic proxy state filled with dhimmis.
“A working 9mm Glock handgun, given to him after he trained a counterterrorism force in 2007, was found in his home by police last year.”
Why were they in his house in the first place? Were they specifically looking for the Glock or were they there for some other reason?
Enquiring minds want to know.
The nobles had arms and armor.
The average freeman,
The weapon could be a rake, scythe, hoe, spear, sword or longbow and arrows.
How far the English have fallen into servitude.
do you find this odd, crazy, ridiculous?
Lift your head and look around you.
Think about the changes coming in America, with Obama’s power unchecked.
Oh,....”The House”, you say, “He’s not “unchecked”!
Watch and see......
He’s a sniper. He likely has a price on his head, lives in a country that has the significant possibility of Jihadi agents wandering around in it, and has a family to protect.
I’d have ‘forgotten’ some iron, too.
Can the Queen or the Prime Minister issue a pardon?
If so, why hasn’t it been issued already?
This SAS serviceman is an exemplary model of what should be good for Britain.
Liberals deliberately and willfully want guns to stay in the hands of criminals, while they take them away from honest, law-abiding people.
Just so the criminals can walk in and take whatever they want. A little “redistribution of wealth.”
His team should liberate him if they don’t wise up. Never grab a tiger by the tail unless you have a plan to deal with its teeth.
Put a fork in Eurabia: it’s done.
Visit now, before the great cathedrals are all mosques.
Tangent to this, I spoke with my auto gnome about a week ago in regards to the labor shift in Europe to Spain because it is cheaper. The gnome then noted, other than "Kit Cars" and boutique manufacturers England doesn't have domestic automobile production anymore.
In fact, the gnome went so far as to say given the slide since WWII ( and all the things Hayek warned them about) their thesis is they actually never recovered from WWII.
I believe this fixation with gun control came in the 60's and I know one brilliant Brit Inventor that left because of it and it was to expensive to fly as a hobby.
Sadly, they are now trying to politically castrate this SAS mountain of a man on the altar of political correctness....
Savage is right, their is no England anymore...
In no particular order
What punishment, if any, would a US soldier expect for keeping a service-issue weapon at home without authorisation?
If this man's Unit was searching for a missing weapon, you would expect it to have been the Military Police which searched the house. Yet the article just says 'police', which implies the civilian police. If that's the case, on what grounds did they obtain a search warrant? Were they searching for something else, and came across the gun by accident? If so, what were they looking for? And would that imply that until that time his Unit didn't know the gun was missing? If not, why not?
Finally, doesn't it rather stretch credulity that a senior Special Forces sergeant could simply 'forget' where one of his weapons was?
