Another anti-gun politician has armed bodyguards: Tony Blair

Even across "the pond" you have politicians who understand the benefits from having guns to protect themselves.

A blundering bodyguard of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair left a loaded pistol inside a Starbucks bathroom during a pit stop while on duty.

The semi-automatic Glock 17 remained on the floor of the coffee shop’s only toilet for nearly 20 minutes as Blair's close protection officer tried to retrace her steps.

It was eventually found by a horrified Starbucks employee, who called police. . . .

I guess, that is about all of the usefulness that gun registration can bring: to identify, track down and return a gun to some forgetful bodyguard. :-)

You know, figuring out what to do with a handgun while you're otherwise occupied in a bathroom stall can be quite challenging sometimes!

Add this latest mess up to the negligent discharge made by one of his bodyguards outside his constituency house....

That man and his bungling bodyguards are more of a risk to life than the 50,000 legal UK pistol owners ever were.
