Thread: Sky News running article today about children with shotguns

    Sky News running article today about children with shotguns

    Interesting worth a look on the news channels

    As mentioned before I get the impression that the "journalist" starts off with the headline idea of "X amount of kids have gun licences" before using the FOIR to churn out the answer. If it sounds high then they will run with the story and fudge over the facts to make it sound better.

    Actually not a bad article ,for a change! both the police and BASC responded well.

    Scare mongering headline but countered well by the above.

    The disappointing bit is that someone bought someone else's lunch on expenses just so that they would again regurgitate a story that would readdress the gun issues as they had been out of the headlines for too long...to add insult to injury they had to use data over the period of 5 years to make the figures look worthwhile & just why is it this information is available so easily in such detail?

    Heaven forbid if these children ever have access to knives...

    I did like the comment from the Gun Control lady saying "you wouldn't let a child in a pub to drink under the age of 18 but we're letting them have guns", obviously the irony of how many deaths are directly linked to alcohol each year not to mention the indirect effects on violent crime, drink driving etc vs the tiny number of incidents involving legally held shotguns.

    And how many people are killed by properly trained and tested licence holding car drivers every year, but they would not dare go there
