This may be closer to reality than you think

You’re sound asleep when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door. Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with fear, you hear muffled whispers. At least two people have broken into your house and are moving your way. With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun. You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open it. In the darkness, you make out two shadows.

One holds something that looks like a crowbar. When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike, you raise the shotgun and fire. The blast knocks both thugs to the floor. One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door and lurches outside. As you pick up the telephone to call police, you know you’re in trouble.

In your country, most guns were outlawed years before, and the few that are privately owned are so stringently regulated as to make them useless. Yours was never registered. Police arrive and inform you that the second burglar has died. They arrest you for First Degree Murder and Illegal Possession of a Firearm. When you talk to your attorney, he tells you not to worry: authorities will probably plea the case down to manslaughter.

“What kind of sentence will I get?” you ask.

“Only ten-to-twelve years,” he replies, as if that’s nothing. “Behave yourself, and you’ll be out in seven.”

The next day, the shooting is the lead story in the local newspaper. Somehow, you’re portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the two men you shot are represented as choirboys. Their friends and relatives can’t find an unkind word to say about them. Buried deep down in the article, authorities acknowledge that both “victims” have been arrested numerous times. But the next day’s headline says it all: “Lovable Rogue Son Didn’t Deserve to Die.” The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin Hood-type pranksters. As the days wear on, the story takes wings. The national media picks it up, then the international media. The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.

Your attorney says the thief is preparing to sue you, and he’ll probably win. The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized several times in the past and that you’ve been critical of local police for their lack of effort in apprehending the suspects. After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you would be prepared next time. The District Attorney uses this to allege that you were lying in wait for the burglars.

A few months later, you go to trial. The charges haven’t been reduced, as your lawyer had so confidently predicted. When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of it all works against you. Prosecutors paint a picture of you as a mean, vengeful man. It doesn’t take long for the jury to convict you of all charges.
The judge sentences you to life in prison.

This case really happened.

On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk , England , killed one burglar and wounded a second. In April, 2000, he was convicted and is now serving a life term.

How did it become a crime to defend one’s own life in the once great British Empire ?

It started with the Pistols Act of 1903. This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to those who had a license. The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only handguns but all firearms except shotguns.

Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.

Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the Hungerford mass shooting in 1987. Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed Man with a Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets shooting everyone he saw. When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of “gun control”, demanded even tougher restrictions. (The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even though Ryan used a rifle.)

Nine years later, at Dunblane , Scotland , Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public school.

For many years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally unstable, or worse, criminals. Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding gun owners. Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns. The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later,

Sealed the fate of the few sidearm still owned by private citizens.

During the years in which the British government incrementally took Away most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism. Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were threatened, claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a gun. Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while the real criminals were released.

Indeed, after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as saying, “We cannot have people take the law into their own hands.”

All of Martin’s neighbors had been robbed numerous times, and several elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs who had no fear of the consequences. Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his collection trashed or stolen by burglars.

When the Dunblane Inquiry ended, citizens who owned handguns were given three months to turn them over to local authorities. Being good British subjects, most people obeyed the law. The few who didn’t were visited by police and threatened with ten-year prison sentences if they didn’t comply. Police later bragged that they’d taken nearly 200,000 handguns from private citizens.

How did the authorities know who had handguns? The guns had been registered and licensed. Kind a like cars.

Sound familiar?

See, largely, the people in the UK who own guns are the yardie gangster types now. Now ask yourself, how did society ever let it come to this? That the most irresponsible, misguided and poverty stricken walk around with a ‘strap’

I think it works well for government propaganda when this is the case.

It’s a sorry state of affairs when you cant do jack shit to an intruder who illegally enters your property without ramifications. Of course, this has been set-up for a reason, to increase the might of the establishments iron fist. We see the police getting more tooled up by the year. Armed police protecting the very people that are taking away our possibilities of fighting back.

In the UK, there is no turning back, not how the system stands now, not while a large section of our kids seem so lost in gang/knife/ipod culture. I hope the Americans do what they can to uphold their constitutional right to bare arms. Isn’t it funny how every time a kid walks into a school and releases rounds into his peers that the shooter was on some sort of prescription drug supplied by the state?! Huge tragedy’s that do nothing but good for the agenda, now why does that sound familiar?

Pressure point self defense for the street

Posted on Updated on


Pressure point self defense for the street.

I am the Chief Instructor and Founder for a chain of Martial Arts schools in the South East. In my 40 years of training and many years of teaching, there has been a lot of fads that came and went. We have been real successful with our schools, by knowing what was a fad, and what it was that we did well and kept us in business. When the MMA hit, I knew it had some merit, but I also knew, it was a sport, no matter how powerful they could punch, kick, and choke some one out, it was still a sport. Because of my background of having my share of nasty fights, where no one would stop someone from seriously bashing me, or me them, I longed for some one who taught the difference. Then while in Thailand for some additional training, I was shown the 12 video disc of the American Pressure Point System. Most practitioners, laugh at the pressure point people, but I for one, had learned a little, and had actually saved friends life by using them, and my own on 2 occasions. So I took it serious.
When I viewed these DVDs, I knew this Instructor was a true Master, and actually understood how pressure points should be used. In fact one of the most major differences between him and the other thousand pressure point teachers, this Master, actually taught a moving, fighting pressure point system, that was not stagnant and  was not based on a non-moving situation as so many other systems were.  I particularly loved how easy the American Pressure Point System easily defeated MMA. I had studied some Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and saw how easy they usually took out stand up guys, who did not know how to counter their system. I made up my mind, that I would seek out this inventor of the American Pressure Point system. I found him in Belmont, Mass, and was I ever pleased I met him. I traveled to his school to attend his private Instructor course, and my life, as well as my Instructor’s  staff, have felt the impact of this system. Master Robert Moran, has truly put together a genius of a system, that makes it so easy for any Instructor to learn, but yet it is seriously a major knowledge to have, as one must truly commit to this system.Master Robert Moran’s, Instructor course, should be a added program in every Karate school in the USA. No matter what age you are, as an Instructor, you will benefit from this system, and you will truly walk with confidence around all other arts as well as seasoned street fighters. You will also have your mind opened to your own system and the American Pressure Point system will take your self defense skills to a new level.Please take advice from a man who has 40 years of commitment to his art, this is a must have system for you.Dale Coker, Nanadan, Wado-Ryu, and Yodan in American Pressure Point self-defense system Shihan Coker has seriously studied many arts, and is based in Thailand as he expands his learning.For more info go to bushidoproductions.com
