Here we go again -- an "expert" speaks

Seriously... an expert?

What qualification do you need to be considered an "expert" these days?

As the old saying goes: X is the unknown and a spurt is a drip under pressure.

Firearms incidents such as this are incredibly infrequent in NZ -- yet the anti-gun nuts still seem to think we need stronger laws and penalties.

Maybe they should put CAA in charge of firearms as well :-)

And it's great to see that Granny Herald's appalling standards have not disappointed us again:

"We've got 1.1 million firearm licenses in New Zealand, for 230,000 licensed firearm users


Since when have we had to "license" firearms? Didn't this expert also say:
Preventing registered guns from falling into the hands of known offenders or gangs was an issue


Um... so our guns aren't registered (aside from some restricted types) but we have a problem with registered guns?

Confused?

This "expert" seems to be.

If a crim wants a gun they will get one, legally or not.

We used to have to register each weapon we had until it was changed a few years ago. Now, according to one's licence, one can have as many guns as they please. Still need a procurement from Da Fuzz to get another gun.

I see that 'Gunner' Greg O'Connor wants the coppers to carry arms again!

my theory is it's got more to do with the intestinal fortitude of the caliber of the present police force and what they now recruit than it has to do with kiwis going mad with firearms
we used to employ police that looked and acted like police
now we employ the politically correct brigade that just dont have the courage to do anything but shoot anyone that scares them at first opportunity
and worse the amount required to scare the current crop wouldnt raise a stammer to most pre school kindy kids

Is this a television thing? I don't have TV. Well I have a TV but I don't use it for receiving television broadcasts -- the signal to noise ratio on that stuff is way too low.

dvbs .. the bigger the dish the more stations from overseas and way less rain fade
1 mtr minimum recommended
140$ delivered ... hour or 2 to setup ( pll lnb )
hd ( mpeg4) decoder with dvbt and android ( tv box ) built in recommended
the odd doco, news report and sport is worth tuning in for
the rest is available better online

and yehh i know you ment the ads

Yeah... I meant the ads -- and the endless "reality TV" crap.

Linear TV is so "last century" anyway, no matter what the content.

Digi TV is a bit different Bruce. More choices.

I watch Choice and Cue as well as Cant TV. Got some very good docos on them. Don't watch one and three or two or four.

If Henry had a twat on his show that would make two twats then Phil.
