    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 seems like a gross over reaction when they'd never have any ammunition or any real likelihood of being stolen.

    It is a bit PC and stupid but what happens if one of us get caught letting someone unlicensed, handle a restricted firearm.

    When I was serving they Army used to run stands at A&P shows and the like. Pretty much all our weapons were on display and handled by the public. They better stop them as well.

    It will be interesting to see the results of the submission in regards to the public opinions on firearms.

    The draft guidelines still allow for school principals like myself to continue instructing students in the safe use and handling of a firearm. There is a requirement to notify parents of the intention to do so. I do not find that a daunting task.

    I thought because of their size / strength kids were better off given crew served weapons... machine guns, mortars, etc...

    I remember as a kid ( 60's & 70's) living opposite QE11 park in Ch-Ch the Army turning up and putting on demos every year, bloody brilliant, mock battles with dummy morta's, thunder flash's being thrown about like a lolly scramble. No fencing or danger tape to keep the public back, when all finished you got to touch, feel and drool over there gear, all to bloody PC nowadays. Kids are way to precious.
