The next killer app for Google Glass

This could help those that spend most of their time scaring deer instead of actually bringing them home for the freezer.

Either way, looks like fun.

Every season they come for your guns

The Herald on Sunday has a rather poorly researched article about an apparent need to urgently review gun laws.

The call comes from a hippy academic who is the chairman of Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University. Why is Otago University has developed a reputation for politically active wombles making trouble from their state funded trough?

In any case this hippy tool has exclaimed that we need tighter gun control….apparently.

A string of hunting accidents is proof New Zealand’s firearms laws need to be reviewed, a leading gun control advocate says.

In the past 10 years, 19 people have died and 57 have been injured by firearms.

A 44-year-old duck hunter suffered serious injuries after being shot in the elbow last Saturday. Another man, also 44, has been charged with careless use of a firearm causing injury and released on bail.

Kevin Clements, chairman of Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University, said there were 1.1 million guns in the country and gun laws needed “urgent” review.

Currently, licensed gun-owners can provide firearms to people with no licence or training, so long as they are supervised. There is no limit to the number of firearms a licensed holder can own.

Gun licences for kindy kids

Part of me thinks this is pathetic, and the other part of me thinks the teachers have done the right thing and not simply banning it outright. We did something similar with our kids who have always had access to toy guns…it was drilled into them early that you never point a gun at another person.

On balance I think think they have done the right thing…of course noe some wowser group will mount a campaign against the kindy

At Stratford’s Avon Kindergarten kids can pick up a “gun” and shoot a possum any time they want – if they have a licence.

Head teacher Lynsi Latham-Saunders has introduced the gun-use policy after some of the 3- to 5-year-olds began using sticks as guns and pointing them at each other.  Read more »

The gun industry is booming in the USA, and it’s all thanks to President Obama:

The July 2013 NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) figure of 855,259 is an increase of 0.2 percent over the NSSF-adjusted NICS figure of 853,355 in July 2012. For comparison, the unadjusted July 2013 NICS figure of 1,271,571 reflects a 1.4 percent decrease from the unadjusted NICS figure of 1,289,585 in July 2012. Read more »

Britain has some of the toughest gun laws in the world, how’s that working out?

In the wake of massacres in the US media people who know no better, like Piers Morgan, called for tougher gun laws, like those in the UK. How do they work in reality? Not so well it turns out.

The images of paramilitary-style policemen with assault rifles in Luton are a shocking confirmation that law and order has collapsed in parts of our country.

In an age of terrorism, we have become used to seeing armed police at major railway stations and airports, or guarding other potential targets such as embassies. But when officers with guns are needed to patrol the streets of an English town because of an upsurge in gang shootings, it seems we have reached something of a watershed in our national life.  Read more »

Girls with Guns

I fired my first shots from my dad’s Ruger Mk II pistol, which I now own, when I was three years old. My dad would take my brother and I through the woods, his scoped Remington 700 on his shoulder. Dad never missed an opportunity to take us shooting. I went from a Marlin .22 rifle to a .20 gauge Remington 870 and beyond. We didn’t have a lot of money, but ammo was cheap and time was preciously used forging a family of shooters. Some of my fondest memories are of shooting with my dad, under his careful direction, and always listening to his well-placed comments on personal responsibility and respecting firearms and human life.
