    Hardly ambassadorial behaviour methinks.

    Unless of course somehow it was the women's fault....
    A few more entries on this thread should see that start to turn in that direction maybe?
    Well they were out in public unaccompanied by man..........only saying......

    Cheers

    While I am a law abiding citizen, I don't believe anyone has the right to stop me owning a firearm.

    And how much of a "law abiding citizen" will you still be when the law is changed to block you from owning a firearm?

    We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
    At present I believe it is a right.
    I have said before on here, while I am a law abiding citizen on the "outside" society tells me everything is a privilege.
    If I were to rape an old lady or fiddle with a kid and end up in jail, society would all of a sudden give me rights.

    Ultimately we are all responsible for our own and others safety.
    But some people are very inconsiderate and do not think of others and their pursuits.
    You see people swimming in the area zoned for water skiing.
    Fisherman out on boats the first weekend of May.
    We don't go near Taupo during Ironman or around Taupo cycle race.
    Avoid hunting rivers when they open for fishing.
    School holidays long weekends consider influx of trampers.

    I was wondering the women had permission to be out of the kitchen or laundry at the time but have been to scared to ask in these modern woke times. Does this count toward getting there? Just trying to help Phil!

    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
