If you break into my house and I believe I am in danger, you will be shot!
No ‘ifs,’ ‘ands’ or ‘buts.’
If the law takes me to task over it, then the law is an ass!
Leicestershire homeowner questioned after suspected burglars shot
Couple arrested over shooting of intruders at house near Melton Mowbray had been robbed several times before, say family
A homeowner is being questioned by police after he shot two suspected burglars at his remote house in Leicestershire.
The 35-year-old man and his wife, 43, were arrested after the break-in in the Welby area, near Melton Mowbray, in the early hours of Sunday.
It is understood he took a legally owned shotgun and shot two of the four intruders before calling police. He and his wife were arrested in Melton on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. Neither had been injured. The arrested man’s mother said the couple’s house had been broken into before. “They have been robbed three or four times,” she told the Sun. “One of them was quite nasty. They have not been injured but property has been stolen.”
Paramedics treated a man with shotgun injuries after the couple called police at about 12.30am, Leicestershire police said. It is understood that a second call was made by one of the suspected burglars. Later, a second man was treated for shotgun injuries after presenting himself at Leicester Royal Infirmary. The two men, whose injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, along with two others, were all arrested at the hospital on suspicion of aggravated burglary.
I have absolutely no sympathy for those shot. They got their just desserts.
If a few more homeowners took this stance, there would be fewer burglaries, possibly fewer criminals to bludge off the country’s penal system too.
Criminality is becoming far too common. The courts far too lenient. Parents far too removed from the upbringing of their kids. The police far too bloody stupid that they arrest someone for protecting property, life and limb.
The rights of a homeowner to protect his home and family are inalienable, regardless of the petty law of the country, we are talking of a primordial right.

Keir Starmer doesn’t qualify to be a village idiot. If the law was working then these felons wouldn’t have been breaking in to another’s home. The law does need changing.
