Is it time to reduce gun ownership in France?

Post by After the Storm » Tue Mar 06, 2018 5:14 pm

You see a cat approaching your hen house, do you -
1. Go get some cat food, it might be hungry.
2. Wave your arms and stomp your feet asking it to leave, no need to shout.

or for those whose brain clearly works in a different way to most other people
3. Go and pick up a .22 rifle.

How does no3. ever seem a normal, sensible solution to anyone? Not only that, he missed the cat and the bullet ricocheted off something and hit a boy in the head. https://www.francebleu.fr/infos/faits-d ... 1520260487

This coming from the guy that started a thread titled "accidently strangling your wife", should I be concerned? :D ....nah, if I am found run over with JSKS standing next to you, telling you what to say or with a bullet in me that had bounced off something else first, everyone will tell them you did it :lol:

Normally my reply would be "You're welcome, happy to help" but I'm sure you can understand my hesitation this time :P

Ricochet defence wouldn't work until hollow points were banned. they didn't go pinging off in all directions.
