    Not a 'Fit and Proper Person'

    Reading back through some older threads, I came across one started by 'pepper 123' on 21-5-2017 titled 'Brass damage ?? Help'
    Forum readers gave the normal balanced and helpful advice feedback as usual.
    Pepper 123, without any provocation lost his temper and launched an aggressive swearing tirade against forum members.
    I am not a phycologist, but life experience tells me that pepper's reaction was not in the 'normal area of the 'Bell curve' Have a read, in short the guy can only be described as a Nutter with an uncontrollable temper. Pepper is not someone who should be allowed to own firearms.
    Has this type of situation been faced before and how do we deal with it ?

    It was almost a year ago. Why are you bringing this up now?

    Why would someone not be 'fit and proper' just because they swear?

    You're not a moderator. Why don't you leave it to them? (Which they did when they closed the thread)

    Half the blokes on this forum think it's acceptable that you might end up shooting someone in the Bush one day so no surprises there

    Interesting, I wonder, what prompted you to think about it now? Did you have a vivid dream telling you to flee to Egypt? Pepper may at the time have been drunk and in charge of a keyboard. Unpleasant, but legal.

    If Pepper said something really worrying, I'm sure the police would have contacted him. IMHO NZ Police would be incompetent if not monitoring forums such as this - never mind not human as NZP is often a topic (who would not read what other people say about you???).

    Some may view venting uncontrollably in the anonymity of a forum as acceptable, a bit like giving another driver some good news via sign language. Both are of course unwise at best. The other driver may be a psycho, and in the case of stupid postings on a forum, well, that record persists for your grandchildren, employer etc etc to read.

    Internet anonymity is wishful thinking, a wet dream. Do not express your deepest thoughts -- remember what happened in China after Mao invited intellectuals to give their free, unguarded feedback. But we want to trust, we want to believe. Ha hah [Cordite flicks the lever and starts reeling in]

    Here Ryan, you are mischievously misinterpreting what people have said. We are not talking about the .270, but peoples lives. I very much doubt anyone thinks that "it is acceptable to shoot someone in the bush". It is acceptable though to have differing opinions on the reasons why this occurs and and what is going on for the individual when it does occur.

    Both transport and hunting are necessary. Getting shot is a risk, getting killed in/by a motor vehicle is a much greater risk.
    We seek to reduce accidents through high vis clothing, addressing carelessness, etc. but a zero accident rate isn't going to happen - in the bush or on the road.

    And the other half think they're incapable of making mistakes and never bother checking twice before pulling the trigger?

    I dont see where anyone suggested what you're saying? Maybe I missed that bit. So which half do you belong too? (According to you)
    Now I gotta ask myself whether someone who suggests that shooting someone in the bush is just a case of being a "mistake" is a fit and proper person.... hmmmmm
