As I sit here this morning slipping ones coffee and browsing through this morning news, my eye is caught with the following bold headline. . 'CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS EIGHT GIVEN GUN LICENSES'
Even before I click the link my nose is twitching with the aroma of sensationalism, mixed with a healthy dollop of journalist s.h.I.t.e talk.
Upon clicking the link the first thing my peepers are met with is a photo of a child, hand outstretched looking as if he has just discovered Pa's Glock hidden in the bedroom table.
The photo dosnt even illustrate the content of their 'non story' which is actually about shotguns.
To give the photo a bit more impact they could have shown Ma's vibrator tucked in there as well. . .it would have had as much to do with shooting in the UK in 2015 as a semi automatic handgun.
It's time that some of these journalists were brought to task before the misinformed actually start believing some of the rubbish they write.
