Another triumph for the gun-ban brigade

This is the terrifying moment a warehouse worker has a gun held to his head by a hooded raider while another threatens to hit him with a sledgehammer.

The raid on the North London food warehouse was captured on security cameras.Two men, armed with a handgun, axe and sledgehammer, can be seen rushing into the building.

Once inside they threatened to chop up workers who refuse to co-operate with their demands.
Imagine that, these robbers aren't following the gun ban! I guess the ban on tools for self defence only disempowers the law abiding. Some quotes;

George Mason: "To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them." (3 Elliot, Debates at 380)

Thomas Paine: "...arms...discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. ...Horrid mischief would ensue were (the law-abiding) deprived the use of them."

Thomas Jefferson: "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." (T. Jefferson papers, 334, C.J. Boyd, Ed. 1950)

Israeli Police Inspector General Shlomo Aharonisky: “There's no question that weapons in the hands of the public have prevented acts of terror or stopped them.”
And finally, from the man whose party created the EU;
Adolf Hitler: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.
I finally suggest reading this page on gun control and crime statistics.
