    Constables don't carry guns (or need to).

    It is legal to cross the street with a beer in your hand.

    But not a chair leg that looks like a gun or you will be shot.

    There are more umbrellas in the UK than there are guns. (4.2 million sold last year).

    Guns are not very effective at keeping you dry in a rain shower.

    Umbrella-guns are the next must-have accessory for homicidal metrosexuals.

    Unless you have a gun and the guy with the umbrella doesn't.

    Patrick Macnee of the original Avengers (not the stupid recent comic-book movie of the same title) would have looked pretty daft with a gun in his hand instead of that suave umbrella.

    I suspect that Georgi Markov's widow would not be amused.

    In 1978 London Georgi Markov was murdered by an 'umbrella gun' that injected a ricin-filled pellet.

    For a couple of decades, Monmouthshire effectively ceased to be. But it's there again now.
