Stupid Hippies

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.

There is no minimum age for holding a shotgun licence in the UK, however children under 18 cannot buy or own a gun themselves and children under 14 must be supervised by an adult.

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?

    Some might say that the gossip mags have a “corrosive, long-lasting effect on impressionable young minds” too. Should they be plastic wrapped and put on the top shelf?

    • Nope, those should just be placed on the trash heap. no sense in wasted good plastic on them.

    In that case they should also demand that you need to show an ID card to prove you are 18+ when you want to buy meat, and segregate the meat section to a special place in the store. Can’t have the sight of meat leading people astray.

    I think these people should find something better to do with their time.


    Is their precious “High Times” magazine also on the high shelf?

    One cannot be cruel to something that is dead.
