In 1953, both the Attorney General (Lord Saltoun ) & the Home Secretary ( Maxwell FFyfe), emphatically stated that any legislation would recognise the right of the public to be armed for their self defence.Parliament unlawfully legislated against Common Law.
In the case in the High Court Regina v Home Office ex parte Michael James Burke ( on appeal ) the Law Lords stated that the right to carry defensive arms ( knife, baton etc ) were lawful and also lawful for the persons duty under Common law to prevent breaches of the peace and dignity of our sovereign lady, Eliz 2nd. In fact whatever the police carry, then so can Joe Public.
The recent book"Does the trigger pull the finger?"explains these facts, and is freely available to be inserted within this website.
Parliament is slowly realising the true facts, but will it allow us to carry such arms, as they have for many years imposed the Emergency powers act, holding Common Law in abeyance.Since Britain signed the United Nations treaty in 1946, there is ( clause 41 ) the right for this U.N. to suspend the Constitutions, laws, Common laws, of each member state whilst war is in process, hence the ever frequent creation of "war" with so many minor tinpot regimes as Libya, in order to perpetuate this "War" standing.We are, and have been duped for years.
