In order to increase awareness of very rarely reported events by the UK media, I'm proposing we collectively inform various news websites as to notable incidents of armed self-defence as they arise. We should aim to do this in a relatively short period as they are reported to increase the chances of selected story being picked up on.

Here is an example:

Houston jewelry store owner fatally shoots 3 armed men during failed robbery attempt

I have sent e-mails so far to the BBC and to The Sun. In the up and coming days I will send e-mails to all these news outlets.

I only just saw this thread. Seems like it would be worth a try. I take it from the abense of further posts that non of the media contacted did anything about it. Perhaps if more than two people had sent the story in ...
That rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer's cottage is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there. ~ George Orwell, sergeant in Home Guard.
