The hippies in the UK are all angry and outraged and are wanting regulation…when do they not?…for magazines like The Field and Shooting Times to be displayed on the topshelf with porn in book stores.
I don’t have a problem with that because there is absolutely nothing wrong with girls and guns. But the hippies seem to definitely have a problem:
Popular magazines about country sports such as Shooting Times and The Field should be on the top shelf alongside pornography, according to the country’s largest animal rights organisation.
In a new report Animal Aid claims that the “lurid, pro-violence content” of country sports magazines could have a “corrosive, long-lasting effect on impressionable young minds”.
But shooting organisations dismissed the campaign as “pathetic”, pointing out that the magazines promote responsible use of guns and conservation of the countryside.
The report, ‘Gunning For Children: How the gun lobby recruits young blood’, argues that magazines promoting guns should be put on the top shelf alongside pornography and tobacco and banned for sale to under-18s.
It claims the magazines sold in WHSmith and supermarkets show pictures of young children holding up or standing over shot pheasants, rabbits, foxes and pigeons and “glorifies” cruelty.
Do they mean photos like this?
