    Ban automatics and cars that can,be converted to automatic, and cars that carry more than 7 passengers, and black tactical looking ones. Make fuel available to license holders. Have a dtabase of vehicles and drivers. Wait! weve got one already and its not working.

    heavens above how impertinent of you we cant have talk of banning a revenue source .anyhow firearms owners are all incompetent feral psycopaths,whom only politicians and selected union officials "in the know" are skilled enough to deal with. even then politicians can deviate from the chosen PC hysterical course and side with legal FALs dammit!

    It doesn't matter how you do the math (run the numbers), vehicles are way more dangerous than firearms. 293 deaths, circa 3,300,000 licensed drivers and circa 5,000,000 vehicles vs 5 (I think) deaths, circa 230,000 FAL holders and circa 1,100,000 firearms. Fuck it, I'm gonna sell my Toyota Highlander and buy a Barrett 50 cal.
    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

    It's the only descent thing to do Rushy, however you are going to have fun carrying it around. Particularly on public transport.

    I'll happily pay twice the normal fare to give it a seat.

    The government keeps cutting back the numbers of Traffic cops on the road, and the death toll is rising.

    More visible cop cars = people are less inclined to speed and do dangerous shit.
    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Stop dumbing down drivers, the Kaimais on a slightly wet day 60 ks, auto road speed control. It’s a joke!
    Up the skill levels required to drive, get work safe involved! Oh no that would be a fail, the death in work place accidents isn’t coming down either!
    Buggered if I know
