A student from Florida was brutally beaten by a Muslim gang in London. The gang was part of a self-appointed street patrol enforcing sharia (Islamic) law in London. The “crime” of the student, an American citizen who was in England to advance his studies, was drinking a beer.
This is why people need all available weapons to defend themselves. If this guy had a gun maybe some of those thugs would be dead and he would have been able to get away. This is another reminder to Americans traveling abroad to be very aware of the situation in the country you are visiting even if it is a “Western” country.
