A Disarmed Populace . . .

. . . is a vulnerable populace.

Desperate Brits are resorting to shopping online for improvised weapons. They are buying Amazon.uk out of baseball bats, billy clubs, and folding shovels. Yesterday, billy clubs saw a 41,000%+ increase in sales, until the item was pulled. Shipping times on their most popular baseball bat (up over 36,000%) slipped to 4-6 weeks. Today, a folding shovel is their new Sports and Leisure top seller, with sales up 239,000% in the past 24 hours!

When seconds count, help is only minutes away.  And in England, that help is generally unarmed and more concerned about the “rights” of the rioters than the safety of their victims.
