Advocacy Groups Call For Firearm Rights In Britain Following Several Terror Attacks

Following numerous deadly terror attacks this year, pro-gun groups in Britain are increasingly calling for citizens to receive the right to bear arms.

An initiative called Carry Now is growing in England and demanding that the government “allow law-abiding, reliable and trained citizens to carry CCW for self-defence in Europe.”

The initiative is backed by Firearms United, a group in Europe advocating for similar pro-gun initiatives all across the continent.

“These tragedies may have been the eye opener to just how ineffective our laws are,” Firearms-UK representative Dave Ewing reportedly told Voactive following last Saturday’s terror attack in London.

Watch Carry Now’s latest video ‘you can’t disarm them with kindness:’

Firearms-UK is spreading the word on Twitter too:

Firearms United made a post on Facebook that fairly summarizes their motivations:

www.CarryNow.eu is now live. Firearm United’s campaign demanding a EU-wide shall-issue concealed carry legislation has been in the works for quite some time, even while we were fighting against the EU gun ban.

In the European Union you can find fire extinguishers, first-aid kits, emergency exits and defibrillators in most public places, and rightly so: these tools do not make up for a medic or a fireman, but they save lives while waiting for professional help.

This widely accepted concept however is almost never applied to firearms: the only effective mean to deter a violent attacker, be it a common criminal or a terrorist, from fulfilling his goals. You also can’t underestimate the positive effect of armed public on public safety – the deterrent effect of firearms has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt. In light of the recent terrorist attacks and to give the average citizen a chance to deter violent crime, this needs to change, NOW.

We demand that law-abiding, reliable and trained citizens are allowed to carry a firearm to protect themselves and others if need arises, while waiting for the authorities to intervene.

They’ve also expressed their disgust at the government for not allowing their own citizens to carry guns while be slaughtered by knives and cars…

Yup another attack featuring motor vehicles and knifes. More innocent people injured or killed and still our government…

    Ain’t gonna happen, Britain..The goal was to disarm the public for a reason, and that reason had nothing to do with your safety.

      The original Magna Charta was in fact the right to bear arms. Tony Blair disarmed people because to stop the gun attitude in Britain an make people easier to direct. My first touristic visit to U.K. was in 1985 England hat guns and Gentlemans Attitude. Hounslow was a classic suburb with everything you could expect. I monitored its change over the years. It’s now a crime hotspot and a pile of dirt.
      In a democratic state that deserves the name gun possession by citizen is a right not a privilege. No need to discuss this topic. Otherwise the people are just a subject. Britain fought the Magna Charta to become a subject. Unbelievable. I thought only Germany is so dumb to follow a “leader” or a Merkel.

    The leaders of Britain would never allow that because their terrorist buddies might get shot while killing innocent people.

    And if there’s one thing the leaders of Europe hate, it’s terrorists not getting to kill and rape a lot of people.

      True. But that doesn’t we shouldn’t support what they’re trying to do with gun rights for citizens.

    You go for it. Grassroots are amazingly effective. It might not be today but keep on aiming for that goal.

    as an nra member in the us i stand with your need of this basic human right but realize that terrorism is a result of choices made against you by your government and you need to be armed against the tyranny of all not just the terror of some

      Why do you call this bullshit? Afraid of what you don’t know? Think of this What I am denied, don’t need, can’t afford or don’t want I will deny all others also. You should rethink on yourself.
      You should not delegate responsibility but take it. Time to act as a grown up.

        I call it bullshit because it doesn’t achieve the claimed result of protected, peaceful people. Societies that have handguns are ALL more dangerous, have a higher murder rates than the UK.

        Carrying a gun isn’t taking responsibility, if you in order to carry that gun you have to allow every idiot on the streets to do so as well. Part of being a grownup is understanding that you are part of a collective, and that you have to sacrifice some freedoms so that everyone can live together. Even in your country you can’t walk around with a rocket launcher.

        Keep your stupid guns. Maybe when your murder rates are within double the rate of the UK then we can start to listen.

          You assume I am from US? Wrong. I am German, however lived a long time in Country with a lot of people in possession of a select fire automatic rifle at their homes. Switzerland. I never saw people going haywire or gun deaths. It is a subject of man and not gun. And Switzerland is a safe place. If there is any state called democratic then it is Switzerland. Not giving up freedom but take responsibility to live together in a collective or even better cooperative society.
          This means indeed not every idiot can legally own a firearm. In fact the lads you mention have guns illegally anyway.

          • blewyn

            June 19, 2017 at 4:01 am

            The guns in Switzerland are issued for military purposes and kept under lock and key. A Swiss man cannot open carry his rifle in the street. We are talking about handgun open carry societies vs gun-free societies. Yes the bad guys in the UK have guns, but the actual murder rates vs gun carry countries are so much lower that to argue guns would reduce crime is entirely unsupported by the evidence (which is why most gun advocates resort to anecdote)

            Now he repeats the bullshit even further.
            Again: I don’t see the Czechs and Isreali citizens shooting each other for fun all the time.
            What the heck does firearm-density even have to do with overall homicide rates? Fucking nothing. At least try to argue with gun-related homicide…

            Firearm density has the same thing to do with homicide rates that atmospheric carbon concentration has to do with global warming – all other factors being equal, it increases it.

        • Wolf

          August 24, 2017 at 1:26 pm

          That’s complete bs. The last time I looked e.g. Czech Republic had one of the lowest murder rate around.

          “Part of being a grownup is understanding that you are part of a
          collective, and that you have to sacrifice some freedoms so that
          everyone can live together.”
          I just abhor communists. My rights don’t begin, where your MUH FEELS end.

          “Even in your country you can’t walk around with a rocket launcher.”
          Noone ever suggested that. Strawman.

          • blewyn

            August 28, 2017 at 12:54 pm

            Your rights end where mine begin. One of those (in most countries) is my right to collectively decide, with my fellow citizens, that our public spaces should be free of guns. In the UK we have achieved this very effectively, and a comparison of murder rates with the US tells its own story. You might feel safer carrying a weapon which allows you to kill others from a safe distance, but my rights don’t end where your MUH FEELS begin.

            The point about the rocket launcher is simple. The right to bear arms doesn’t extend to all arms – clearly there’s a limit. The only point of debate is where that limit should be. Single shot .22 handguns ? AK47s ? Rocket launchers…?

    Terrorists Strike.
    Armed Citizens start firing back.
    Bystanders are accidentally shot too.
    Are Armed citizens are good shots ???
    What happens when terrorists start dressing like tourists

    In the end you’re gonna have alot of dead people most of who are not the bad guys

      Armed citizens are not suspected by terrorists to be armed – different to policemen in uniform. Therefore they can act calmer and more cautious before they draw a gun.

      That’s the reason why armed citizens have less collateral damage than police. To be armed does not mean that you always shoot. Sometimes it is better to wait – see attack of Gifford in the US. Sometimes it is good to aim, but not shoot – see Clackamas Town Center shooting.

        and when they are dressed as “policemen in uniform.?”

        It’s only as matter of days, weeks before they outfit themselves as cops.

        then what
        who do u aim for then

          We be already had people who make themselves appear as officials already. So what? In Afghanistan this is usual. Do not trust a person in uniform until you have confirmed it. A person that shoots in uniform on obviously innocent people such as females accompanied by children should be shot at immediately. Common sense! And you can always state the situation will escalate if civilians are armed. The reality is exactly the opposite. Criminals look for easy prey not to become shot. Also criminals possessing a gun increases fines. Terrorists want casualties and if there are bystanders become shot by accident in preventing numerous casualties by the original killer .. what is outweighing what? Perhaps one casualty due to active response compared to numerous casualties by terrorists by doing nothing and wait for official assistance?

        • Katja Triebel

          July 16, 2017 at 12:55 pm

          Why should they do this nonsense? Law abiding citizens usually follow the law. It is forbidden to wear uniform without cause.

    • Phil Evans

      June 10, 2017 at 6:12 pm

      Well Dante, that was spoken like a true sheep. We can’t be arming mere mortal citizens now, can we? They must be helpless to fight back, because that would be best for everyone. At least as you say.

      So you contrive no-win scenarios to prove your point. That’s like playing chess and moving your opponents pieces, too.

      When The People have had enough of such nonsense spouted by the likes of you and the tyrant politicians, they will put a stop to it and take back their freedom to protect their own lives.

    Whether or not their tyrant leaders “allow it”, if enough of the people want liberty they will take it back. And it’s high time that they do. I wish them blessings and success in their struggle for freedom.

    June 10, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    The right to save your own life is the most basic of all human rights. It’s high time The People take back their freedom to do so. The bearing of arms for the defense of life is an honorable thing.

    I think they should get the right to kill each other off over there, than the muslims wont have that much trouble taking over. LMAO you folks get hand guns yall be shooting everything but terrorist.

    Its the only answer, a few armed and trained citizens, about one in five should do, the bad guys will have to guess who is armed and who is not and so it is they who will live in fear.
