Rejected petition it is time to legalise the use of carrying guns for safety & personal use.

After the recent terrorist atrocities in europe & elsewhere, & the threat posed by terrorist orginisations to our liberties & safety, it is time we had some personal protection for us & our families, also the cuts in military spending & forces spending, a extra level of protection is what is needed.
