London Bridge Terror attack....

So the terrorist was "detained" by citizens armed with a fire extinguisher and a Narwhal Tusk. I guess that counts for concealed carry in Britain now.....speak up USA.

There is a reason we broke away from England 250 years ago. Still hoping many of the libs go back. I concept of self defense really doesn't bother those folks.

I don't disagree, but who the faulk has a Narwhal tusk with them?

True, but the guy holding the tusk is clearly not a whale of any type. Not even slightly overweight from what I can see. Just out and about in London carrying a 6 foot long tusk.

I've been a lot of places (not London) and have seen some strange shit. Hell I was a cop for over 30 years and never saw something like that. I haven't seen it all, clearly, and not much surprises me anymore but seriously this is a bit out there.

People make weird choices when you take away their ability to defend themselves?

Wow some brave guys on this thread, unarmed civilians acting as first responders take down a terrorist, running to towards danger with no training no back up just courage and fear by their side and all you guys can do is mock.

Nice....

I wasn't mocking at all, I think it's outstanding. It's a dangerous thing for a civilian to pick up a weapon of opportunity and jump in and I applaud them for putting themselves in harms way. It looks like they were kicking his ass. I just am surprised to see a Narwhal Tusk readily available as a weapon frankly.

Well if you knew more about what happened that morning and where the incident started you'd understand why he ended up using that as a weapon.

Google is your friend...

So I applaud the Polish Chef who had the idea to grab a Narwhal Tusk that was on a nearby display. I'm not being critical or dismissive, all I saw in the initial reports and video here in Canada was a guy armed with a Narwhal Tusk. That struck me as odd, I think that seems fair. Perhaps if you look at it from my perspective you'd see it in a similar fashion. Given that Narwhal isn't exactly native to GB and a tusk isn't something you'd think of someone just having readily available. At least I've never seen anyone carrying one around.

Perhaps take a reading comprehension course
. I was mocking the politicians who force these guys to ineffectively defend themselves.

Whenever you criticize someone, you frequently criticize their reading comprehension. Perhaps a look in the mirror would do you well.

I hate knives, many people underestimate their danger in close quarters, the only appropriate defence is distance and a firearm.

Hopefully they won't let anymore of these terrorist nuts out early.

Boris Johnson says 74 terror prisoners released early https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50618744
