9781482089202: Debarred the use of Arms (Second Edition): A warning from The United Kingdom

Since the publication of ‘Debarred the use of Arms’ there has been a shift in the policy towards self -defense in the UK. It is small but significant. Judges are looking at self- protection and justification in a new light. As to whether that will lead to more consideration for the victim and less for the criminal remains to be seen. There have also been major events in the US, such as the tragedy at Sandy Hook, which I predicted in the first edition, but take no pleasure in having been proved correct. In this second edition I have updated some of the cases and added illustrations, not available in the first edition. This book details the events leading up to the total ban on modern centrefire and rimfire handguns,in the United Kingdom. The forward is written by a leading US defense expert Lt Col Dave Grossman, who has endorsed the book as essential reading for anyone who feels that the problems of the UK could never come here. The Author is a former UK police Officer who now runs a shooting school in central Kentucky. He is a life NRA member and certified NRA and State instructor. His background in both law enforcement and politics ,makes him the perfect choice to write this book . Since emigrating to the USA Steve has become active in Second Amendment issues ,and has been asked to speak at several rallies and other events.

About the Author:

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Steve Challis was born in 1948 The United Kingdom. The son of a Farmer Steve grew up in the Rural Cotswold’s where he learned shooting and hunting on the farm where his Father worked. Following 5 years service in the military (Royal Air Force) Steve joined the Hampshire Constabulary, in 1969, serving as an officer for 21 years. During his police service Steve became a certified Firearms instructor with the NRA (GB) and the NSRA (National Small Bore Rifle Association) He competed in local and National competitions, for a time he was secretary of his Divisional Police pistol club and did much to foster good relations with civil and military gun clubs in the area. During his service more and more regulations and restrictions were imposed on Gun owners, and inevitably the enforcement of these regulations fell on the shoulders of the City and County Police Forces. Steve found himself more and more at odds with the policy of gun control and the subsequent hardening of Police attitudes. In 1995 Steve left the Police Force and became active in Politics, Still a member of the 2 main shooting organizations he had seen the slow strangulation of gun rights in the UK. And after a year with a single issue political group he joined the UK Independence Party after attending a public meeting against the increasing dominance of European Union. After forming a local Branch of the party in his home town Steve campaigned in several local and National Elections, culminating in his being selected by the Party to fight for the Parliamentary seat for the Eastleigh Constituency in the UK General Election in 2001. Steve failed to win the seat which was captured by the Liberal Democrats who were, among other issues, heavily in favor of Gun Control. Following his defeat in the Election Steve continued to actively campaign with the party taking part in a 4 million strong National rally in London on September 22nd 2002 organized by the Countryside Alliance. A group supporting field sports and Countryside activities including Hunting, and Fishing. In 2006 Steve met his wife Eva via the Internet and in 2007 they became engaged. The following November Steve moved to the USA and He and Eva were Married in Ketchikan southern Alaska, In 2009 the couple settled in Kentucky where they bought a Farm and in 2010 opened a Firearms training School. Now a permanent US Resident Steve is a tireless campaigner for the second amendment rights.
