guns and things that go bang
Yep. Crooks have heaps of guns. And believe it or not when they kill someone you find they are unlicensed. The good guys ....They had to hand theirs back. I am ex army weapons instructor, ex police...Honourable record with both, not allowed to have a firearm.
Oddly enough I had my son carrying an auto when he was about ten. He got a licence when he was 18 (legal age) then gave up shooting cos he thought all his pals were nuts with guns.
Now the law is you need fifteen recommendations from the Salvation Army, Friends of the Earth and whatever , plus training and interviews to get a licence.
84 year old Irish nursery man (gardens) that fought for this country in WW2 tells me that he had two customers in there buying plants. Man asked the wife to give him money from her bag. She did ,but accidently dropped a pistol and shot him in the foot. Similiar incidents have happened in his yard before. Now none of these people were born in this country and the woman was not wearing an Akubra hat on her head, so you figure it out.
