    The decline of book reading plays a big part in that degradation of a critical thinking.
    Following a survey In France last year, it was 1.5 book read per habitant per year which is terrible.

    Also, the greens wants the voting age to go down to 16.
    I say fine, as long as the age of adult criminality penalties is moved equally down to 16.

    So since the current government wants to restrict firearm ownership more but free the canabis consumers market, will they authorise dope smokers to have a firearm licence and firearm licence holders to smoke dope? What about safety in the workplace? Is that not going to clash big time? ( I am not into drugs just to reassure the readers)

    Maybe it’s a cunning plan - “you smoke dope? - then no gun licence for YOU sonny”

    It states in the 7 basic FA rules to avoid drugs and alchohol "when handling" firearms.

    I'm not into drugs just to be clear.

    In my opinion, they would do just as well to protest the tide coming in or going out, the end of winter, the possibility of summer, and the fact that the sun disappears at night.
    Reckon you hit the nail on the head.
