More U.K. Madness

Yet another example of how ineffective gun control is in preventing violence.

Doctors and teachers in Britain are being given body armor.

We're talking Britain here, not Baghdad. When was the last time you saw a health care professional or teacher here in the supposedly-gun-crazy U.S.A. wearing Kevlar?

Didn't think so.

Of course, this is the same country where the National Children's Bureau has declared toddlers who reject spicy or unfamiliar foods from other cultures to be racist. Staff members at nurseries are being encouraged to report as many incidents as possible to their local council.

Pay attention, people. This is what can happen happens when cowardice, political correctness, and enforced helplessness take over.

UPDATE: Too late, it's already happening here. I forgot about the four-year-old who was accused of sexual harassment in Texas and now has a charge of "inappropriate physical contact" in his permanent record.

One of the reasons that I have stopped reading new from across the pond is the anger taht I have when reading about (formerly) Great Britain.

Yikes.
