Nobody is as tough as you, or wants to finish in a hail of bullet just to prove it.

well, so we all buckle down to a bullet in the post.

If the law was the law, and enforced as it should be, no-one would do this sort of thing.
Whenever you have a society which rewards murder, bombing, hiding dead bodies, human bombings, political assassinations etc really what else does one expect I suppose.

the gelding class now, for the time being, rule the roost.

Depending on the ungelded class to enforce the demands and expectations of the ungelded class.

Orwell was so right.

To my knowledge, the law has so far been unable to stop crime.
It only punishes it ... sometimes.

So, a bullet in the post, in those circumstances, is to be taken seriously.

When you are the head of Northern Ireland's largest building company and receive a bullet by post about some controversial project, you should take the warning seriously.

I know that for a tough guy like you that means nothing, but the guy has probably more to lose than you by playing hero and ignoring it.

I know I would, not only because I value my life, but because it would also affect my family. Now, of course, for you that's not important, but for many people it is.

Have to disagree with this head of whatever. No guts is the common parlance for it.
