A mate of mine after a few beers had a row with his wife last weekend. There was no hint of violence but she felt scared and rang the police. What happened next was shocking but not surprising given the current climate and debate on gun control. At 4am he could hear someone shouting his name. He looked out of the window to see a torch being shined back at him. It was the police. They gave him no time to dress but told him to come straight down and outside. He was greeted by 2 ARV's, 2 dog handlers and a shedload of officers with guns trained on him. The road was closed off and he was cuffed in the middle of it with neighbours up and looking on. He is in a big crock of sh!t. He had left his ticket in his lorry and that didn't go down well either. I'm not here to moralise. He's a good mate and made big mistakes which he may well pay a big price for. It was a wake up call for me. I use my rifles everyday and if I'm honest they don't always go straight back in the cabinet as I will go back out later. My ticket was in my glovebox of my motor. His life and job are on the line now but it could've been easily avoided. There are lessons we can all learn from this.
