Default Farm tenant arrested after burglars shot

I realize this happened in the UK, however, I believe this is the direction we would be headed under any "no gun" policy. Thieves would have the upper hand even in a violent attack. Criminals don't care about laws or even breaking them. However, they have become very good at using them to shift blame away from there actions and staying out of prison.

Here's the story

Farm tenant arrested after burglars shot was 'plagued by break-ins'


A farm tenant and his wife who were arrested after two suspected burglars were shot at their isolated home had been the victims of a number of robberies.

The man is believed to have grabbed a legally owned gun after they were disturbed by the break-in early yesterday.

He is understood to have fired at the intruders who then fled the isolated house at Melton Mowbray, Leics, before calling the police.

Minutes later, an ambulance was called to treat a man with gunshot injuries nearby. It is understood that call was made by one of the suspected burglars.

The arrested man's mother said: "This is not the first time they have been broken into.

"They have been robbed three or four times. One of them was quite nasty.
