We just saw something on the news about residents of England defending their homes and neighborhoods with brooms…. REALLY, A BROOM?
Can you imagine only having a broom at your disposal to defend yourself, your property, family, friends, and neighbors? I find that a shotgun, pistol or rifle works much better. A criminal wants to meet as little resistance as possible. A broom is like using a garden hose to put out a house fire. I want a fire engine, not a garden hose. The police are expected to defend the citizens, but what happens when that police force is stretched too thin? You are $&!# out of luck!
