In my observations, the gradual increase of "Firearms Fear" began when school cadet units were abolished,and school rifle ranges closed down. It continued when compulsory military training was ended in this country.  CMT was the making of some scroats, that I knocked around with in my early youth, gave them focus,awareness of their abilities and a modicum of discipline. I agree with a lot of the previous comments, we have become too PC and too soft, as a nation generally.
The "Fakebook" and once a year "roarhunters" are entitled to their way of hunting/shooting, as long as they are responsible in the scrub.

Been in the garage playing and got to thinking about what Alan said and if I was to have a final thought on this, I would have to say social media plays a massive part in young peoples lives now.

Facebook for example - no longer is bullying confined to school, you can now get it at home on your phone.
I have a niece who does Facebook - got pointed to her page by my sister for comment.
"Wow, she's peeled weight - almost didn't recognise her."

Nope - that image of her was photo-shopped, had peeled at least 100 lb off her.

And so do people sell themselves - as something they'd like to be rather than what they really are.
A 'keep up with the Jones's' thing I suppose.

A curious way to live life, but it's what we do.

I doubt anyone is truly honest about who they are, I'm not - I tell you so much bullshit I'm surprised I haven't been banned.

And that's not an invitation HC, because I lied about that being my 'final thought' on this subject - too much of a 'moving feast' to bugger off just yet.

Grin Grin As one ages one doesnt actually give a toss if what you say doesnt go down well. You can get away with it. Just grab them by the neurons.

There's a degree of lunacy in life mate - hard to take seriously sometimes.

"I'm pregnant."
"How'd that happen ?"

I did take that seriously - it's given me a good ride.
One such being when I dressed up to go to a dad and son afternoon a few years at his school. Spent the day running around kicking a ball and playing cricket and my flash pants crawled so far up my bum I had trouble picking them back out.

So when I had to do the same with my daughter I wore shorts, bare feet and a singlet and they were all dressed up. No kicking a ball around or cricket, just got paraded around for nice conversation - and I was thirty years older than the next oldest dad.
What really made it all worthwhile though was one of the lady teachers mistook me for a grandad.

"So, you're Dylana's grandad."
"Nup - I'm her dad."

And she got confused ........

"So, are you on her father or mother's side ?"
"Nup - I'm the one did the rumpy pumpy."

Never seen a woman vanish so quick.

Daughter got really shitty and has only just forgiven me for that - told me I wasn't a proper dad.

You gotta take life how it is - the bad bits and a lot of good bits and while you never forget the sad bits it all eventually mellows into the past, just today and tomorrow's left - and you can't quit, you gotta keep going.
Pretty good life really.

I like this forum - even found a brand new buddy here (cheers EC).
Must admit though, I'm surprised you noticed I have an opinion on everything - even stuff I know sod all about.

I was keeping that a secret  Smiley

And - I'm bloody glad I don't live in Syria.

And I think I said it right there.

Have peoples lives become so small they have had to resort to the Internet, Facebook, bullying to entertain themselves ?
Does it bolster their opinion of themselves - make them feel better, more valuable ?

And why has this happened, this need for recognition/notoriety - is it because the Church/Religion is on the wane.

Religion exists in most cultures - no matter how primitive - they worship (ed) a god or multiple gods, a stone, Sun - whatever and in past times they put a huge amount of energy into that worship.
Wars were/are fought over religion, they gave whole societies a sense of purpose - an outlet.
Take that away and what are you left with - a society with no focal binding - no common purpose.

And I think that is where the Western World currently is - no common goal to unite us, we've chucked our God's out and have become lost and wandering - no longer a tribal unit, but individuals seeking an outlet.

Internet games provide that, they replace reality with fantasy - a means to test and prove ourselves - and they're as addictive as heroin or tobacco.

No matter what manner of hardship you live under, those games hook you in and take you to another place - at least for a time.
Once you're in - bloody hard to get out.

I love them, yet I don't play them - they frighten me.

And - I'm not particularly religious, but I do believe in ghosts/spirits - so that's a bit confusing for me.

And - that could just be my 'final thoughts'.

That's cool, I'd take it any day.

I got the opposite.  Teachers think i'm the older brother.
At my Sons 21st, two of his flatmates thought I was one if his mates and asked how I knew him?
I said 'pretty well'.   I was there when he came out....actually I was also there when he went in.

That didn't get a lot laughs when i put it in the speech tho.
  

Like a cane chair at a nudist camp, always leave an impression.

Yeah, I sensed a need in EC - it echoed mine  Wink

Must be an ageist thing I suppose - we're nip and tuck as far as that goes.

All the people who claim for the ban of guns seems to not understand that the problem isn't how to get a gun because if a mass shooter want to kill, he will get guns legally or illegally.
