Thread: The media hammering more nails in again

    The media hammering more nails in again

    Have pulled this from another shooting forum but I think all involved in firearms should see what we're up against.

    My heart sank when I heard some of the comments, just made me feel like throwing the towel in... with public attitudes like that and no balance shown by the BBC, it feels like it is only a matter of time before the choice of whether to shoot or not is taken away from us!

    Why do we rarely see or hear such criticism of video games such as COD, which, to my mind, with their level of realism are far more likely to condition young minds that running round shooting people with guns is just a bit of fun!?

    You want to be exactly 6 mins in..

    The article before the about shooting, asked is the Olympics encouraging people in to sport and the next article then complained that it was wrong to encourage young people in to an olympic sport.

    The best thing is for us is to encourage as many young people as we can.

    Form the comments on that report, it is blatantly obvious that they all think as soon as a child gets hold of a gun they transform into some kind of criminal lunatic shooting at anything or anyone that moves!
    Thats a pretty dammning view of todays children, which makes influences such as COD even more of a problem that needs looking into

    I hope that everyone will make themselves aware of the Green Party policies in respect of animal rights, eating meat, gun ownership and country sports. atb Tim

    Saw this last night as we are in the SE area. Nothing new from the BBC, and as for the lady from the looney tune lot, Green, yes very green. Not a countryside person and probably another veggie or vegan. I often wonder how they would manage to survive if they had go without their pills and soya, which by the way along with palm oil farming is destroying a vast eco sysyem called the amazon rainforest.

    I have a T shirt I wear occassionally usually to offend which says "There'ed be more environment to care for if the f/////n vegitarians would stop eating it"

    Let them get on with it, and I will get on with what I was born to do, hunt and manage deer

    Medal of Honour Black Ops has very similar combat content although the best bit is the Zombie game modes though.... well other brands of graphic video game violence are available .... Lets be honest it's good crack when you and some mates go online and waste waves of ever more dangerous and numerous zombies using guns ranging from a 45acp 1911 to an RPK to a Ray gun...

    LOOK RIGHT... Before you judge me, a guys got to do something when it's raining and you can't get out stalking
