Default Shootings

Is it just me or have a lot of people been shot over the last few days? There was the incident where some police where shot, one where a man shot his partner, there was one where a man was shot in the knee and now there has been a man shot at a train station.

We don't have enough people to start shooting each other regularly. Time perhaps to say that if the guns can't be used sensibly they will be taken away?

For me coming from the North of Ireland where the population is only 2 million i find this Country incredibly safe, even the rough areas while yes having the fair few drug addicts and violent nihilists are merely petty in comparison. There will always be violence and it will only increase as the population increases especially in a society of moral relativism

Rats! You beat me to it.

Part of the new Great Taste Cycle Trail here is currently shut due to it being duck shooting season. I'd have thought tell the shooters to stay the hell away from the cycle trail but what do I know.

There is a plea not to shoot a rare pair of wood ducks. I'm not fancying their chances.

Well from a distance, obscured by trees near sighted people...

...still wouldn't mistake a cyclist for a duck.

If it looks like a duck, cycles like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

Sadly, any excuse to have a go at cyclists........

....in fact you could probably sell cyclist shooting tours to London motorists and make an absolute fortune (until you very quickly ran out of cyclists).

Firearms safety is an issue in New Zealand. Of course, shooters should keep away from cycle trails but, likely as not, they won't. It's not that long ago that a female camper was shot dead by a hunter when she left her tent to go to the toilet in a public camping ground. Hunting fatalities and injuries are far too common and it often boils down to slack handling of weapons, poor judgment and lack of awareness. The worse ones are those who think they know it all - I have witnessed it. They think they have nothing to learn from the instructors. One of the problems is that the law is too soft on the culprits. The charge for fatal hunting accidents should be manslaughter - automatic, no ifs or buts. Mitigating circumstances can be sorted in court, but the charge should be automatic.
