If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Please post your great news stories here.
I will begin with this consumer nightmare!
Early shoppers at Boots in South Road, Haywards Heath, found the store closed this morning.
A sign on the door said: “Due to unforseen circumstances we do not have a pharmacist at present and so are unable to open this store.
“The store will open as soon as a locum pharmacist arrives, unfortunately we don’t yet know what time this will be.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank our customers for their patience.” The store later opened.
Lucky. The only people I meet in bars are the ones who offer me anonymous bathroom gay sex.
teehee, clearly I jest but what is our conclusion from this?
It seems that if guns are present in a culture they will, on occasion, be used to shoot people regardless of whether there is a law in place or not. Conversely, if there are no guns present in a society then 'no one' will be shot (just stabbed). Sounds legit to me.
But how does a ban actually get rid of them? That's the part I've never understood. I moved to Australia when they were implementing this and some people said straight up, on the news and everything, that the government can stick their amnesty where the sun don't shine. After my wife's grandfather died we found three revolvers in his bedroom. With bans or restrictions, probably the best case scenario is no one can sell them legally and your risk of getting shot by a firearm (that isn't manufactured in someone's shed) will slowly decrease as the years roll on.
Also, in reference to my earlier comment...
...but if this ends like a standard week there will be at least one local shooting (usually motorcycle gangs), another standoff in one of the big cities down south, and someone at the pub will ask me if I'm interested in buying a handgun.
I was away for a few days so I can't remark on the availability of guns or gay sex at the pub this weekend.
This seems to be the only answer that would work -
no one can sell them legally and your risk of getting shot by a firearm (that isn't manufactured in someone's shed) will slowly decrease as the years roll on.
Hardly a quick fix, something I feel all those opposed to guns would want, but the only one that seems like it could actually make a difference. The reality of this though is clearly different.
Add gloves and stuffed animals to the list of items that should be grounds for preemptive arrest, right next to trench coats and fedoras
