IS IT TIME INSTEAD OF BANNING GUNS, WE ALL GOT ONE?


The latest tragedy in Cumbria, is the latest in a long line of gun tragedies in this Country.  Hungerford, Dunblane and now Cumbria.
They say that it's not guns that kill, but the fucker who pulls the trigger.  I don't want to see guns banned, I've owned a shotgun in the past and 99.9999% of all people who have a gun, use it responsibly.  I also understand that in this country, gun crime of this type is actually quite rare.  I'm told that if you want to buy an illegal gun, they're easy to come by.  So is it time, we all had guns, like in the States, then at least we could kill the nutter that shoots indiscriminately at us.

IT'S TIME WE HAD THE DEBATE!

Bollocks. This is the same argument that the NRA used in defence of guns after the Columbine massacre. If only the kids had guns they could have shot back....

Mark, well I'm glad you've entered into the spirit of things with such a well thought out and reasoned argument. I'll put you down as a NO then! ;-0

I used to be a county level competitive shot with a pistol, so I understand your arguments.

I'm writing a piece on this subject at the moment which I shall post when I return in a week's time from my holiday in, er, Boot...

Apparently they found the mad bugger's body in the woods at the back of our cottage. Cameron and I are both going up there tomorrow.

It's certainly put a dampner on the holiday but I suppose I should be grateful that I didn't go a week earlier and get my head blown off.

Greekers, I shot Clays at a reasonable level although I did not represent anybody or win anything apart from a half bottle of Vodka once. A strange prize for a shooting competition. I really enjoyed it but it got too expensive. to go and shoot a 100 clays, by the time you pay for them and the cartridgs etc, was fucking expensive. I also shot pistol a bit, but of course Dunblane knackered that. People who don't shoot don't understand the pleasure in it. I have been having an argument with a stupid bint on Twitter all morning.

Coronation Street was cancelled last night due to this outrage !
That's 'Britains not Talented', the England World Cup' and now 'cumbrian mad taxi driver bastard' all causing disruption to Corrie .
Where will it all end ?

One mad fucker every ten years can't be legislated for. How many people could you take out with a lorry down your local high street on a busy Saturday afternoon? If you're intent on causing carnage, the possibilities are endless.
Licensing and controls yes, outright bans no.

Jim Baxter said...

I don't get it. If everybody had guns then, well, they could indeed shoot back. Criminals have ready access to guns. It's only the law-abiding who don't in the UK.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Corries- nothing short of a national disgrace, was that other pile of shite about the East end of London cancelled as well? I fucking bet it wasn't. Wait until the Queen dies and we have no telly for a fortnight.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Smokers, you're right. You can do at lot of damage with a machete. Look at Rwanda. I'll tell you one thing, if it comes to being hacked to death or a bullet through the brain, I'll take the latter option!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Jimbo, I don't think we should be able to carry guns, fucking willy-nilly, but all the banning of guns after Hungerford and Dunblane didn't stop the massacres. Look at Shipman and that other pair West, if they had been prone to carrying a gun more people could have died, so having a gun doesn't make you a killer. I don't seem to remember much tightening up of Doctors and mad fuckers because of them. Anyway there was Labour politicians involved in Dunblane, the most prominent of whom was Robertson who went on to be defence chief who were running a paedo ring. Anyway that's a story for another day.

DL. Corrie had a storyline about some mad bastard shooting people so it had to be re scheduled. My mum went mental and said she would kill that cumbrian fruitcake if he hadn't done it himself. Selfish bastard. She won't watch Eastenders as it's full of darkies.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Easties, you are officially able to say blacks now the Tories are back in. We're not having anymore of this HR/shite, from now on a black person can be called a black person. It also applies of course to brown people and white people and blue Scottish people. The phrase 'Scotch fucker' is allowed again as is the phrase, 'Sassenach fuckpig'.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Easties, Oh and you can roll your cheeses down a hill and if some fucker gets trampled it's his fault for being in the road.

@ Concerned soap fan
There's always Emmerdale. No darkies, just sex, blackmail, murder, more sex, and of course, beastiality for the rural audience.

Smokers, I just hate seeing those poor sheep getting shagged.
