The story about the brutal murder of the British soldier is chilling. The fact that it happened in broad daylight and that the attackers just waited around afterwards for the police to get them is bizarre to say the least.
I can’t help but wonder what would have happened to this poor man if regular British citizens were carrying guns. Perhaps a bystander could have shot the attackers and saved his life. Perhaps if the attackers knew that this was a possibility it would have stopped them from doing it in the first place.
I am happy that I live in Israel, where my soldiers are allowed to carry guns in public and know how to use them. I am surrounded by the good guys who have the means to defend themselves (and me of course).
