    Very good then.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Now while firearms ownership is a legal right, I choose to think of it as both a priviledge and a responsibility. That promotes me to be careful and thankful for our legally recognised freedoms.

    But don't let some knobby policeman tell me that my legal rights are a priviledge exercised at their discretion. Wrong, they are agent for society to ensure that I meet the requirements of the law in order for me to be granted my rights under the law.

    The finer points of that are of course lost on the masses with opinions.
    Now how does it pan out when the white noise makers without accurate, relevant and competent opinions are the elected members making the laws?

    Gee you lot are turning me into a cynic. Bad form!

    and you ain't got a mandate on the real world either...
    You not wrong and your not right, you just express an opinion as have I! The law, in my opinion, is applied by a lot of weak knee , out of touch judges!!

    Now while my uncle would agree with you, my father insisted that the water was only for putting under bridges and boats.

    I'll have the Coke.

    No.. and I am pretty sure that you have missed the point.... I offered an opinion based on knowledge and capacity, and on any sensible analysis on what I offered, it is correct.

    You on the other hand offer no evidence, facts or information that can be relied on to form a legitimate opinion. You only have a perception based on random unqualified pieces of media information, you offer no statistical understanding and no apparent understanding that media reports are based on statistically extreme pieces of information and bear no real reflection of the day to day situations, and normal performance.

    You apparently have no ideal that our prison populations are at the highest levels ever and our offending rate/1000 people has been dropping consistently for years as well as has the total offences reported. (At least up to 2012). That don't sound like weak kneed judges to me, unless of course your argument was that they are obviously weak kneed because they respond to political and public perceptions, even when the stats apparently don't require it. But I am pretty sure that isn't what you meant.

    So what you know about the normal day to day work done by judges in this country doesn't appear to stack up. Based on what I know, you have a pretty weak case for your latest attempt at a legitimate opinion.

    Poorly created and uninformed perceptions aint opinions. The're just feelings.

    Media and pollies try to manage public perceptions, cause with numbers it doesn't actually matter whats right and wrong. When they fail they get get Trump. And he aint wrong about fake news, hes just too stupid to know that he's the worst at it.

    What do they say... ? we live in a "post truth society."

    I wouldn't assume that you know who I am Maca or what I can deliver... that sounds like another unsubstantiable opinion...
