    12 yr-olds with guns in national parks, what a ripper idea.

    Here’s another one, equally as good: on every public holiday O’Farrell’s cabinet should convene outdoors in one of these allocated parks. That’d test their mettle.

    “Dumb, dumb, dumb, Fatty what have you done?
    Dumb, dumb, dumb it’s the sound of a gun….”

    ….. how do drugs and guns mix?

    As the description of the grisly deed in frame 5 shows us, it’s not guns that kill, it’s hands. The opposable thumb and the species that possesses it will be the death of us all.

    I think you’re onto something Zut, maybe they could invite Dick Cheney along ?

    If we must follow every lead of the good old US of A, why don’t we insist on the right to arm bears?

    um, so Steve, are we talking Ursus ursus or simply hairy blokes with chaps (so to speak)? Though the thought of koalas with firearms does have a certain fearful symmetry.

    Best thing I heard today was on ABC, in an interview with the head honcho of one of the pro gun thingies. He corrected the interviewer when he called guns “weapons” .They are guns. Perhaps shooting implements would be better. I am sure the animals and humans shot and maimed by “guns” appreciate this correction

    It’s a wonder that gun slinger didn’t call them “thunder sticks”?

    Hmm, a gentle soul I knew a long time ago had a similar experience to young FDOTM.. Though it didn’t stop him emptying the magazine of a semi-auto .22 rifle into his wife. Last person you’d imagine doing such a thing.

    I’m sure at the end of the day Charles Darwin would support the NSW Government decision.
