Not sure 'bout the gun thing
Engerland is discussing its guns. The Group Captain more than adequately sets out the deal.
Dunno quite where I stand on guns. I personally do not want to have a gun. I have shot them. That is okay but no so thrilling that I wanna sign up to a club or something. But I do like the idea of a decomissioned delight, Italian designed, of course, hanging on a wall. They can be beautiful bits of engineering and art.
Much of Oz, maybe even most, after Port Arthur happened, was okay with the gun buyback scheme and the later amnesty. Because shooters could still have guns - it was just that the licensing and tracking got a bit more tight, you know? Oz still has shooters. Happy shooters. Many of them wogs. Shooting for sport and hunting. Fine. But the violent imbeciles, as the Group Captain points out, get guns anyway, licensed or not. And they pretty much phuqh it up for the rest of us.
And when I get to thinking about them, then I start thinking maybe I should be armed.
