drewogatory: Doom MD: drewogatory: Doom MD: super_grass: willfullyobscure: Assault weapons like the AR-15 should be banned. They have no place in civil society.

Except for wild pig hunters, I guess that's a valid exemption. I mean, if some retard wants to buy a $1600 varmint rifle because it looks cool like his vidya games show, who am I to say no.

As long as its only used for feral hogs. Otherwise, ban military-style firearms outright.

For god's sakes at least keep the gun whargarbl stuff in threads about American events. And no, ironic shiatposting is still shiatposting.

[img.fark.net image 400x224]

Also, boars are not necessarily endangered, the prince is not hunting them illegally (AFAIK), Brit journalists and submitter are idiots, etc..
This embassador of his nation is doing something that is likely illegal in his own country

Are you seriously trying to say the prince can't legally hunt his lands in the UK? I find that a dubious assertion.

I'm really not well versed on firearms laws in the UK, I only lived there a year and never used a firearm there. I got the impression hunting was a rich man's sport.

He's the farking Duke of Cambridge. Pretty sure he qualifies as "rich".


Because only the rich should be allowed to hunt

Wait, they're seriously upset with him for shooting a pig?

A tasty, tasty pig?

Wild boar is good.  Really good.  Much better than farmed pig.

Apparently they're not considered shoot on sight bad in Spain like they are in much of the US, but there is a hunting season, and they do actively try to encourage some population control by hunting.

Hunting in general is not illegal in the UK.

There are gun controls which mean individuals can't usually have their own firearms, but clubs are allowed to keep firearms locked up, and members of the clubs can use them during scheduled hunts.


Handguns are banned.

Individuals can own shotguns and rifles, if they have a license.

Obtaining a license requires owners to have a lockable gun cabinet, a visit from the police to inspect the premises and a background check of mental health and criminal records.

At least that was the idea I got from speaking to people in the UK. I may not be completely accurate, but I know for sure that hunting is legally practiced over there.

Yeah.

My brother has two shotguns and was after getting a rifle too. Regularly goes out grouse beating and clay pigeon shooting.

The problem with these activists is they lack perspective. Everything is a crisis to them. They have no focus, so they blow everything out of proportion. And when that happens, nobody will listen to them.

Of course illegal poaching in Africa needs to be shut down. His Highness is right about that. And one of these things has nothing to do with the other.

In America, we have a serious (and worsening) wild pig problem.  Wild pigs are destroying crops and pig populations are far out stripping even the most aggressive hunting efforts.  Apparently American wild boars have been cross bred with a Russian pig and these things multiply like rabbits.

I'm not a hunter, I can't imaging shooting a deer (let others do it) but I would hunt wild pig every week if they were in my area.  I've read that wild pigs are now in all 48 continental states.

Most boar in the US at least are nuisance animals, so it's usually not eaten. But from what little I heard piglets and sows are preferable to tough, gamey males.

You can have your own rifle or shotgun for hunting, no problem.  My nephew has had is own shotgun since he was 11, and my brother in law uses a rifle to thin out the wild rabbit population on his land.  (Plus the occasional squirrel, the thieving buggers).

Just don't try a tusker. The meat of sexually mature wild pigs often develop a strange taste, due to sex hormones. The best ones ore young animals, max 2 years old.

There's too much envy on the left of politics regarding blue bloods.

As James Blunt set out on his musical career, his Household Cavalry brother officers made a point of supporting his efforts - not always to his advantage. "James had some fairly horrid experiences at gigs," says fellow officer Olly Birkbeck. "We'd troop along to these infernal places where he was playing. Lots of record industry guys would be there, checking James out. But he'd have all these roaring chinless wonders in red moleskin trousers, coming up and congratulating him on his stuff. James would look sheepish. He couldn't get away from us quickly enough."

There are several versions of "wild boar."  Many are simply domestic pigs that escaped from farms and went feral (that happens in a single generation).  Others are the result of stupid people importing Russian boar for sporting purposes. The Russian boar then escaped and bred with existing feral pigs to produce the vast problem we now have--and yes, it is in all 50 states.

Who cares about gun violence? Would you feel better if people were being pushed out windows instead? The UK is still very violent, and it doesn't even border a 3rd world country.

In the UK, the physically strong or numerous can basically dominate whomever and the police will arrive several minutes-half hour later to make a police report about it. Contrast to the US, where I can have a conversation with a nice 70 year old lady with a revolver on her hip who I wouldn't dare to mess with since she'd Annie Oakley me in a heartbeat if I threatened her. The illusion of the state protecting her isn't necessary.

Furthermore, well-regulated as written 200 years ago doesn't mean what it does now.

If you don't live in fear of your life being taken, why do you feel the need to carry a gun?

I'd rather live somewhere where I can use guns if I want to, but don't have to deal with Zimmermans and all the other farked up gun nuts that the USA has.

iron de havilland: Doom MD: Neither do I, because I have the option to carry my 1911 when it suits me.

It's important to understand original intent.

I usually don't carry, but I like having the option to. If I'm going to bad part of town to get a ups package or hiking in bear country, you bet I'll consider carrying. Freedom of choice and not being treated like a child by the government is something I guess I just really value.

Most gun owners are really friendly and down to earth. Were a nation of 300+ million people with arguably the most active media output in the world. If those so called gun nuts were a dime a dozen it wouldn't really make for much of a story. You're not hearing much about the gang wars in Chicago are you?
