Noticed this on the BBC News site this morning
BBC News - Children under 10 issued shotguns, BBC learns
The headline is "Children under 10 issued shotguns", as if to suggest that they are being handed out in packets of cornflakes. The point is, so frickin what, the people in question have made applications for SGCs, these applications have been reviewed by the relevant authorities and subsequently granted, in accordance with the law. The BBC is a taxpayer funded organisation, it is not supposed to be a left wing, anti gun campaign group, so why is it trying to foment anti gun feeling in the gullible public? It wouldn't have anything to do with the forthcoming review of Firearms Legislation...would it?
