    If a firearm licence was a stipulation of the position, then the job vacancy(for his replacement) advertisement should read something along the lines of "only applicants with a firearms licence need apply".
    How would you, I, or anyone apart from the employer and employee know what the job description was?

    What makes you think he might still have a firearms licence?

    Well if you, I, or anyone else don't know what is in his job description, why are you suggesting he may need his firearms licence for his job?
    There are hundreds of farm employees in NZ who have no need for a firearms licence.
    If you read and understood my statement you would have realised my comment was regarding the job description for his replacement, not him.

    Highly unlikely on a dairy farm at Kaihere. The odd goat and deer in the hills but not on the plains, and very few people process their own homekill cattle.
    And euthanising stock can be done with a captive bolt gun, which doesn't require a FAL. Increasingly common on dairy farms now.

    @kotuku Good to see wasn't the only one that cottoned onto the reference about "bad blood" in the article. I actually thought that was in pritty bad taste from the jurno that wrote it

    The expression 'bad blood' is very common one in relation to a feeling of ill will, anger, or hostility between people. Hard to how using it can be in bad taste when referring to this incident, just because of a 36 year old movie about another mental farmer with guns.

    I don't but that's why I used the word IF It was my response to your Trolling/Speculating

    Hard to work on a farm without one. Not much point in making him jobless and making his family suffer.

    Not really. That is WHAT they used and WHERE they found it - not the same as answering WHY they used it.

    We don't know for certain WHY they used it, but it may be reasonably deduced from the (intentional) effect of the article.

    The use of the image in this article, with its MSSA caption, has the effect of suggesting a guy used a .308 MSSA against his neighbours.

    The motivation behind this could be just because the journalist's integrity has been prostituted to sensationalism... or because of some Australian type gun control agenda which no inconvenient fact must stand in the way of... or both.
