    We could have a forum member in the know.
    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

    Somehow I don't find that surprising.

    Not much more by way of information in the Herald this morning but they imply that the offender has died in the house fire. If that is the case then it's a pity about the house but fucking good job well done.

    Yes very tragic.

    But why is it that the police always know these guys?

    If he is known to the police why have they not done something sooner?

    You see the same thing here with these bloody terrorist in England. How often do you hear "Suspect was known to Police"!

    Yet its to late again. I know that this sounds hard but dame getting shot isn't all its cracked up to be either.

    It certainly was tragic.

    How well did the Police know him? What information were they given and was it enough to act on? Just because Police 'know' somebody doesn't indicate anything, if you've ever reported lost property or a person driving like an idiot then they 'know' you.

    I believe Police did an outstanding job yesterday and a number of them put their lives on the line to try and save the victims.

    Typical scapegoating by someone who knows nothing.

    From what I saw on the news, the police chief said they knew his name.

    You would hope he didnt have a fal but sounding more likely that he did have one, be interesting to see if it was current or not.

    Seems either way it would be a systems failure with them saying he was shooting most days and after stabbing a police officer i would hope he did not hold a current fal as we dont want to be assocated with these types of people and surly he wouldnt be "fit and proper"
