    Stuff - Good article about teenage shooters

    A pretty well balanced article about teenage (mainly female ) shooters

    Outstanding article I reckon!
    I know both parents of the teenagers in the article and they are doing an outstanding job of educating their teenagers in life skills.
    At least they know where their meat comes from unlike alot of youth of today!
    I have three boys 19 to 15 and it is with great pride I can send them of before daylight from the saftey of my sleeping bag and they bring back their kill gutted and ready for hanging!
    My job is done!
    Well almost, just got the youngest to get their licence now!

    I agree, a damned good article. The shame of it is there is no doubt countless other stories out there just like this which show a more realistic and honest side to firearm ownership and hunting in NZ. What we need to do as a community is try and get these stories out there in front of the public to counter the more headline grabbing, revenue making stories the popular media promote which does not present a truly balanced view of who we are. Letís be honest, bad and salacious news generates more revenue than good news.

    Cheers

    It’s that type of positive “read” that will only benefit us all.

    The media have just about run out of slander articles pertaining to law abiding firearms owners,the idea that they should produce something positive was now,probably,their only option left

    Good article for a change.

    ..........but the cynic in me keeps whispering that the anti gun brigade will spin it to express outrage about the 'poor innocent children that are being brainwashed by their parents to accept that death dealing weapons have a place in our ideal world'..........And that young people should be able to 'Make up their own mind without interference from adults'....

    Agree, there seemed to be a subtext of OH MY GOD, A 16YR OLD HAS A FIREARMS LICENSE AND SHOOTS UNACCOMPANIED.
    Would someone please think of the children

    On face value, laudable.

    To me if one reads carefully, the article smacks of the prevailing MSM aggrandisement of the female gender whilst simultaneously denigrating that of the male. Interspersed with a hint of self-promotion.

    Nah; I think you maybe reading too much into that Overall I think it's a pretty well-balanced piece.

    it was positive, which is good for firearms owners right now

    there was a predictable slant on ability of young people to be safe, by Stuff, But at least the AUT psychotherapist. did qualify it re how kids are raised/taught positively. homicide data
    and Nicole McKee did a great job again.

    showing the public that firearms owners are actually not rabid pro gun red necks is whats needed..

    Don't know the kids, but know Vern. Can't imagine his kids turning out bad.

    Interesting article - some selective commentary from so called experts.

    Are young persons of the same age also eligible to obtain a NZ drivers license ?

    She explains that a 16-year-old's prefrontal cortex, which is the part responsible for decision making, has a long way to becoming fully developed. Teenagers are also still developing the capacity to regulate their own emotions, developing the capacity to have empathy and they are more prone to experience negative feelings than the average adult, and they feel those feelings way more intensely.
    In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when conserved by the sportsman. The excellent people who protest against all hunting, and consider sportsmen as enemies of wildlife are wholly ignorant of the fact that in reality the genuine sportsman is by all odds the most important factor in keeping wild creatures from total extinction.

    Read the article, piss all over it, as it was comparing mental abilities of males v females, JesusFnChrist, i have had enough of the feminist 'slant' to last a lifetime.

    Just once, I would like to see a positive article about women in the shooting sports without all the bullshit.

    Fact: Women are better shooters than men.
    Fact: Women are easier to train than men (still need to be trained though)
    Fact: It has nothing to do with mental ability or maturity, but preconcieved notions on technique that men have and women do not

    So Gdmn tired of these articles that marginalize men for no other reason that what amounts to penis envy.
