No need to give details of the latest atrocities splattered all over the galaxy news broadcasts.
This time it is Germany's turn to shed juvenile blood, closely followed by Unclesamland determined not to be outdone by lesser gun loony nations.
Of course 'Lest we forget" the mayhem created by our own product of shame, the one and only patriarch of Gun killing loonies; Martin Bryant, who like many Tasmanians born with two heads accused each other in turn for orchestrating the tazzy massacre of 35 souls.
Guns menace our society.
The overwhelming majority of gun owners are responsible, respectful members of our community. they take care to register their weapons - note that I said weapons, because killing machines they are and in the hands of loonies we will inevitably continue to switch on to the breakfast time news of further killings. Yet it is natural for there to be widespread concern over the sheer number of guns kept in NSW Australia.
For reasons nobody can fully explain, Guns are flying off the gun shop shelves.
Some will argue no problem exists as long as safety rules are followed and the correct precautions taken.
But it is surely a matter of simple logic that the more guns there are, the greater the chance of a gun related death or injury. Currently the good ole boys in the US of A and a few women gun nutters from Minnesota hold the unapproachable record off death by gunshot injuries.
Accidents involving guns are rarely mild. As we saw in the case of 14-year-old Josef Cruickshank, fatally shot by a younger friend in December.
Gun owners, more than most of us, will be aware that it takes only one irresponsible or unbalanced individual to wreak unholy havoc with a firearm.
We must ask that they remain vigilant and ensure mistakes are not committed.
Everyone have a safe weekend, my w/e starts on Thursday's...????? No I am not Jewish.
