FOR TINY TOTS
There should be public outrage!
And why not?
- no questions were asked
- no warning was given
- no police were called first
- and the guy surely could have shot the axe out of the ‘suspect’s hands, or got him in the (much less fatal) foot, no?
- seven rounds—that is taking it seriously
who, given the circumstances, I’d have been perfectly happy to have potted myself if I were the reactive (it means antisocial) guy with the gun.
But that’s just me—I do tend to go overboard when people are charging at me with what on prima facie appears to be hostile intent and a loaded axe. (I’m a wee bit of a panic merchant, I’m afraid.)
WHEN ARE AMERICANS
and anyone else going to learn that it’s bad manners to go around shooting people?
in New Zealand our own anti-gun lobby has been quoted as telling us that all disputes can be settled over a nice hot cup of tea and simple discussion with a big pile of bikkies*. (So there, Yanks … no need to run around shooting everybody.)
if they are going to ban guns, I think a reasonable case might be made for banning axes too, and anything with a blade longer than six millimetres …
* Frankly I think the biscuits makes better sense than yer average wishful ‘do gooder’ …
