Here ya go:

You're sound asleep when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door.
Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with fear, you hear muffled whispers.
At least two people have broken into your house and are moving your way.

With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.

You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open it.

In the darkness, you make out two shadows.

One holds something that looks like a crowbar.

When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike, you raise the shotgun and fire.

The blast knocks both thugs to the floor.

One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door

and lurches outside.

As you pick up the telephone to call police, you know you're in trouble.

In your country, most guns were outlawed years

before, and the few that are privately owned are so stringently regulated as to make them useless..

Yours was never registered.

Police arrive and inform you

that the second burglar has died.

They arrest you for First Degree Murder

and Illegal Possession of a Firearm.

When you talk to your attorney, he tells

you not to worry: authorities will probably plea the case down to manslaughter.

"What kind of sentence will I get?" you ask.

"Only ten-to-twelve years,"

he replies, as if that's nothing.

"Behave yourself, and you'll be out in seven."

The next day, the shooting is the lead

story in the local newspaper.

Somehow, you're portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the two men you shot are represented as choirboys.

Their friends and relatives can't find

an unkind word to say about them..

Buried deep down in the article, authorities acknowledge that both "victims" have been arrested numerous times.

But the next day's headline says it all:

"Lovable Rogue Son Didn't Deserve to Die."

The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin Hood-type pranksters..

As the days wear on, the story takes wings.

The national media picks it up,

then the international media.

The surviving burglar
has become a folk hero.

Your attorney says the thief is preparing

to sue you, and he'll probably win.

The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized several times in the past and that you've been critical of local police for their lack

of effort in apprehending the suspects.

After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you would be prepared next time.

The District Attorney uses this to allege

that you were lying in wait for the burglars.

A few months later, you go to trial.

The charges haven't been reduced,

as your lawyer had so confidently predicted.

When you take the stand, your anger at

the injustice of it all works against you..

Prosecutors paint a picture of you

as a mean, vengeful man.

It doesn't take long for the jury to convict you of all charges.

The judge sentences you to life in prison.

This case really happened.

On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk, England, killed one burglar and wounded a second.

In April, 2000, he was convicted

and is now serving a life term..

How did it become a crime to defend one's own life in the once great British Empire ?

It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.

This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to those who had a license.
The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only handguns but all firearms except shotguns..

Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.

Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the Hungerford mass shooting in 1987.Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets shooting everyone he saw.

When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of "gun control", demanded even tougher restrictions.
(The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even though Ryan used a rifle.)

Nine years later, at Dunblane, Scotland,
Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public school.

For many years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally unstable, or worse, criminals.
Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding gun owners.
Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns.
The Dunblane Inquiry, a few
months later, sealed the fate of the
few sidearms
still owned by private citizens.

During the years in which the British government incrementally took away most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.
Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were threatened, claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a gun.
Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while the real criminals were released.

Indeed, after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as saying,
"We cannot have people take the law into their own hands."

All of Martin's neighbors
had been robbed numerous times,
and several elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs
who had no fear of the consequences.
Martin himself, a collector of antiques,
had seen most of his collection
trashed or stolen by burglars.

When the Dunblane Inquiry ended,
citizens who owned handguns
were given three months to turn them over to local authorities.

Being good British subjects,
most people obeyed the law.
The few who didn't were visited by police
and threatened with ten-year prison sentences if they didn't comply.

Police later bragged that they'd taken
nearly 200,000 handguns from private citizens.

How did the authorities know who had handguns?
The guns had been registered and licensed.
Kind of like cars. Sound familiar?

WAKE UP AMERICA ; THIS IS WHY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS PUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN OUR CONSTITUTION.

"...It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.."
--Samuel Adams
If you think this is important,

please forward to everyone you know.

You had better wake up, because Obama is doing this very same thing, over here,
if he can get it done.

And there are stupid people
in congress and on the street
that will go right along with him.

1st of all the attacker was braking in the storage outside

never cracked the window frame, and wasn't chipping on the lock of the front door.

when the door open both thieve would take off running and you engage
them with a shot gun killing one wounded the other,

there were wrong to be on our premisses, you have no right to shoot them
since they didn't engage you.

you have to remember we re human not saint if these people try to rob
it is because they really want something maybe hungry no job no life

you dont just murder them call the dam cop make a report.

while the lord was on the cross beside him were 2 thieve hanging
he told them he will bring them into heaven that same night with him.

I support killing if your life is threaten but if no then go on about
you dam business and leave folks alone.

I was waiting on some honey but there aren't no Queen bee,

136 people died in Mexico today because of the drug trade, to bring you your weed esco.

How do you feel about being responsible for creating the demand for the drug trade that kills so many?

136 a day, 50,000 in a year, you are killing these people so you can make your tea

By the way, guns are illegal in Mexico

wrong. If you're in my house uninvited, you've put your life or death in my hands. Better hope I'm having a really good day.
So to you, if a guy is hungry or broke, then it's quite OK to break into somebody's house and take what's not theirs??? What kind of world did you come from??? My god.....

To me It doesn't matter WHAT they are there for. If they are there without permission they sure as heck had better not brandish anything and had also better provide a very good explanation FAST! Many homeowners wouldn't be nearly as tolerant as I would (hope) to be. One only knows how they will react to a situation like that once they are actually in that situation. I, for one, would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

they ran after they were shot. Big difference. Call me anything you want, but if you BREAK INTO my house when I'm there, you're leaving in a body bag. I have restraint. I caught a guy trying to break into a place I was living. I had my 45 cocked and loaded at my back. Turns out he was a drunk guy that couldn't remember what house his friend lived in and they were out pool jumping from house to house naked and he got seperated. I saw him the next day walking down the street and let him know how lucky he was to be alive. Nobody with a sane mind WANTS to shoot another human, but if it's them or me, he's going down.

I could care less why you are in my house...if you are hungry you better knock at the door and ask and I will probably help you...you come into my house unannounced, especially in the middle of the knight, and brandish anything, you will not see the next day.....the way I see it that person screwed up...sounds like one got away.

es1co2bar3 here is a simple way to not get shot. Do not trespass and do not steal. I do not care if they are poor, homeless or hungry. If you are trespassing and stealing out of my home, the shad in the back yard, or my car in the front driveway you very well may be shot. I am protecting my property and my family, it really is that simple.

So if its a 17yo kid trying to steal my car radio . . . To bad he/she was so stupid as to risk their and my life over a car radio.

And THAT is the main point. People need to know that if they try to commit a crime there are potentially serious consequences as opposed to a slap on the wrist from an overloaded court system.

I would not but I would hold him at gun point until the cops arrived. Breaking into my house while my family is sleeping, that is a different story. Hungry?, Need work? ASK! Dont steal! Pretty simple.

For one thing, when this happens I am not going to know how old the person is, also I will not know how they are armed. I will know they are a thief and I will protect my property, my family, and myself.

You want to blame me, not the scumbag thief and that is just wrong.

You enter my house unannounced I am shooting. There is no reason for anyone to enter my house without my permission. As for if he is just stealing a radio, how the heck do I know that is his only intention. He broke in, I am protecting myself and my family. If you have a problem with that then do not break into my house.
