We all know that gun crime is largely an urban phenomena so I am bemused to read stories like this below:
While not Mother Theresa clones, shooters must be one of the most law abiding segments of society, so you would imagine that it is within the grasp of most police forces with a rural population to deal sensibly with people out shooting recreationally or as part of their work/duties. An man dressed in realtree and (probably) surrounded by dead pigeons shouldn't be cuffed and led away like an assassin.
I imagine it gives plod the chance to use his shiny new black kit though and be all 'hard' back at the station. C**ts. How long will it be before a law-abiding shooter is gunned down by some twitchy firearm response team unless the police have a clearly documented policy on rural shooters (or urban fox cullers for that matter).
Alternatively, it could be considered to be further evidence of a government that would like to restrict firearm ownership even further.
