Twisted knickers in the UK about a judge telling it like he should to a couple of mending burglars. How dare anybody defend themselves?
However, Gill Marshall-Andrews, the chair of the Gun Control Network, said she feared such remarks could lead more people to turn shotguns on intruders. “This kind of comment is likely to escalate gun use and encourage people to use their guns for self defence which wasn’t the purpose for which licences are granted,” she said.
She added that she did not believe that opening fire on a burglar was a proportionate form of self defence.
Apparently it was not her genitalia the one being threatened.
In my opinion, the bad boys got off easy: the shotgun was loaded with birdshot.
