Over the last few days we've discussed the use of firearms in stories. But I'd like to query our friends in the UK about a real story I saw last night--admittedly I have spotty information. Briefly, one of the Royals was in a car, supposedly being chased by the paparazzi. The driver, either a friend or bodyguard, brandished a pistol, and took dead aim at the photographer who snapped a picture looking down the barrel. Clearly a kill shot. In my state, we can carry, and I do. While locally we have the "castle doctrine" but no 'stand your ground' provision, an attempt by vehicular means (even a carjacking) is grounds for self-defense. Me? The attacker would be dead already. I make sure I carry every day, and this is one of the reasons. Supposedly, your queen is not amused. Is this the truth? Is this seemingly logical response tolerated in your country, or is this just your usual media way of fomenting debate to sell more newspapers?
