How can the normal Joe protect themselves and what are some of the laws regulating this in the UK? This is also the case in Chicago and Australia to name a few. Thank you.
It depends what part of the UK you are in. In most of the uk you need a reason for getting a firearm hunting target shooting etc. Self defence is not a recognised as a good reason. In the part of the uk that i live in handguns can be got for self defence under certin circumstances and for target shooting. But the circumstances here are a bit different than the rest of the uk that's why handguns can be obtained for self defence. Example bellow today's news Quote

Police believe dissident republicans were within minutes of firing four mortar bombs which were found in a van stopped by officers in Londonderry on Sunday night.

The van had its roof cut back to allow the mortars to be fired. You can see the 4 mortars being examined in the photo they were designed to be fired trough the roof of the van.

The threat level at the moment In Northern Ireland it is Severe - this means that a terrorist attack is highly likely. www.homeoffice.gov.uk › Counter-terrorism

Manta: If you are lucky enough to get "permission" to get a handgun are you allowed to carry it outside the home?

If its for target shooting you can take to and from the range or for repairs etc. If its for personal defence then you can carry it with you wherever you feel you need to.

Manta: You mean you can CC a loaded handgun where you are. Not just LEO/MIL, but regular people? I thought CC wasn't allowed at all in your area.

They are not easy to get but anyone considered to be under threat can get one. Quote. A total of 2,924 licenses have 'Personal Protection Weapon' among the conditions of use. These holders include ex-PSNI, civilians and prison officers.

Northern Ireland is the exception. And as he said they are HARD to get.

2,924 is just a drop in the bucket compared to the number of people there. I don't consider that CC being allowed, only a few "special" people get to do it. Sounds like DC or NYC.

As i said you have to be under threat. Police take their service weapons home for self defence. No different to
some states in America as you say. Being armed dosint always help example of a murder erlier last year.

Black died at the scene from gunshot wounds after his black Audi car was raked with automatic fire at around 7.30am at the M12 turn-off of the M1. A blue Toyota Camry with a Dublin registration had driven up beside the victim's car while he was driving to work in Maghaberry top-security prison – a jail that is at the centre of violent republican protests.
