Self defense in England

Seems a man is teaching the elderly martial arts with their walking sticks. In other news, the UK plans to ban walking sticks. Meanwhile, this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. But I suppose that when you ban effective means of self defense, ineffective ones become a reality.

    Yup, this is what the libs want to have happen here.

    Here’s what I wrote to the manufacturer back in August when I first heard about it:


    I came across an article about your Safe Bedside Table, and I must say
    its mere existence is a sad, sad commentary on the state of society in
    Great Britain.

    But not for the reason you probably think.

    What it says – nay, screams – is that your country is charging at full
    speed into the dark ages, where the serfs were at the mercy of their
    lords for protection from thugs when (and if) their lords decided to
    bestir themselves. Good God, it’s the twenty-first century and you are
    reduced by your government to defending your homes and lives with a
    *wooden stick*?

    I weep for your country.

    I think that’s a “pointy stick”.

    Never studied it, but I’ve heard that Kenpo cane form is very effective. Of course, I’d rather just use my .45.

    I ran across a description of some umbrella forms too. An umbrella tip into the cleft between the collarbones (base of the neck, front side) would slow almost anyone down.

    Holy crap, Britain’s reverted to the pre-Stone Age. No pointy tip, no metal or stone stabbing implement. Just a wooden club and a wooden shield. Pretty sad when you have to bring back circa 200,000 BC technology to protect yourself.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
