In an alarming incident the british police response time has been highlighted. ---------------------------------------------- A couple shot dead in their seaside bungalow spoke to police half an hour before they were murdered, police said.

John and Joan Stirland, 55 and 53, were killed at home in Trusthorpe, Lincs, just before 1430 BST on Sunday.

Mrs Stirland, the mother of a convicted killer, had fled her home in Nottingham with her husband after it was attacked by gunmen last year.

They called police to tell them a prowler had been spotted outside their home.

Lincolnshire Police, aware of the earlier attack, took seven hours to visit the couple.

*cough*No guns?*cough*

This is exactly why people should be allowed to arm themselves. Maybe it will take more instances like these before you people finally get your heads out your asses.

I was talking mainly to the people around these forums who don't support gun ownership.

I think that America is a prime example of how and why gun laws don't work. Lets say that you hear a noise outside in your garden and you go outside with your colt. You see a figure in the darkness come out of a bush and you raise you gun and fire. You walk over to the corpse of your victim only to find an 8 year old boy retrieving his football that landed in your garden.

By having a gun in your house you only indanger yourself and your family. What if a man legaly buys a gun for his protection, then he goes insane for some reason (and temporary insanity is on the rise in our society due to stress levels), he then takes that gun into work and blows the brains of his co-workers heads. These are things that actualy happen in the U.S. The only reason the 2nd Ammendment exists in the American consitution is because it was written a time when the civil war was very much alive. It has no place in a modern society.

Your arguement has no validity because that case you just made happens so rarely that it is not even funny. There are not that many gun wielding rednecks in America that go to the extent you just made.

Uh huh, and guns make you invincible :rolleyes:. Pull your head out of your arse, this is a discussion about the disgusting response times of the police, not your desire to put bullet holes in everything. 7 hours?! Sheesh...
