    The only time the 'end' will be in sight is when the police realize it is their job to uphold the law, not to make them. Laws are made by the gumment.
    Don't blame the 'roar'...its the retards [approved by the police] that shoot people.

    Check out the seven basic rules in my signature block Raymond. One of them had to be broken for this to occur. It is a sad thing when something like this occurs because in my view it did not need to happen.
    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

    Ummm where does it say he's been shot? Police report a hunter killed, could have fallen down a bank and broken his neck but because the word 'hunter' is used everyone is ASSUMING he's been shot.

    I got two words for you..... "Personal responsibility"

    Do you blame the police for every road death as well ?

    Or maybe you are in favour of the simplest solution: just ban all firearms. Or possibly the expense of annual psychological evaluations for all firearms owners ?

    All the reports are saying is a hunter has died. Nothing about how.

    There are a ton of mineshafts in the area that I am surprised no one has gone awol into yet.

    This happens bcoz people dont follow the instructions.. they need to change the attitude and seriously understand that there are no compromises when hunting.. you need to adhere to all safety measures outlined be it fire arms or bush craft..plus use some common sense.. Just saw another incident on stuff
