Calls for bans to booze in wake of idiots doing dumb shit?

People who are drunk do stupid things all the time. There are calls to ban airguns after Darwin intervened yet again and removed a fool from the gene pool:

Police are warning that airguns are powerful and potentially deadly weapons, following the death of an Auckland teenager.

An 18-year-old has died after being shot in the abdomen with an airgun at an Auckland address last night.

A group of five friends were shooting cans in the backyard of the property at a Manurewa address, as well as drinking alcohol, when the teenager was shot, police told ONE News.

The youth was given medical treatment at the scene, with the assistance of neighbours, before being taken to Middlemore Hospital. 

He died in hospital shortly after arriving.

At this stage, police say there is no evidence to suggest the shooting was intentional.

“It looks like they were having some target practice with some cans at the rear of the property,” said Detective Inspector Dave Lynch.

“We are unsure exactly how much alcohol had been consumed. They certainly were drinking,” he said.

The cause of death is not the airgun, it is the drunk fools using firearms while under teh influence of alcohol. Let’s see calls for booze to be banned because stupid people do dumb things while under its influence.
