    Tally Ho, maybe the Conservatives can push this through as national policy and then the hunt will have something useful to contribute to the country.

    Sorted.

      Devon and Cornwall Crime Commissioner says in extreme circumstances gun owners should be allowed to shoot terrorists.
      They already are allowed to use reasonable force.

        A farmer or hobby marksman is not going to be wandering around Woolworths, or stirring his soup in a restaurant with a rifle when the terrorist strikes.

          The Torygraph article I linked to pointed that out.

            Not necessarily.

            You can use reasonable force against someone, kill them, and not be prosecuted.

            Though I've only heard it for stabbing someone to death with a knife not shooting them.

              It's all very well saying you can just shoot a terrorist but all the police find is a corpse and hear what you tell them. They can't just slap you on the back and sing "For he's a jolly good fellow", they need to investigate it.

                    Armed police officers are highly trained and yet still make the occasional mistake. Every time there's a fatal shooting an investigation follows. And a crime commissioner is proposing some random bloke/blokess be allowed to shoot a 'terrorist' or someone who happens to be in the vicinity at the time and happens to be brown. Can I suggest we invest in training more of the people who are supposed to protect us instead?
