  • Pin-Up boy McGrath does a U-turn on hunting!

    After all the financial and other support given to him by SSAA members over his wife's fatal breast cancer "pink ribbon" appeal - the ex-cricketer now "tips the bucket" on hunting, as if it was some sort of cringe/apology?

      At last, a bit more 'balance' from commercial TV?

        this isn't the only gun board that post articles/news clips etc... on "celebrities" and their views, politically, guns etc..... every gun board has them

        but what gets me, I don't get why the vast majority of gun owners even give 2 shakes of a rat's butt about "celebrates" and their opinion/views etc... and flood the thread with

        so what? it isn't like their opinions/views or comments is relevant or even matters, so why even get your BP over 1 point over someone you don't know or even knows you're alive?

          I just guess it just annoys me Ghoulardi, that the Oz public are being constantly misguided and misinformed by extreme greens/gun-grabbers & the media - seemingly we cannot do anything about it.

          Here in Oz this sort of sporting celeb back-down does matter a lot as we have had 3 instances where misguided opinion and media orchestrated "public opinion/moral outrage" has been used by politicians to pass legislation for bans on:- target pistols (2003-Howard); registration of all long-arms and effectively banning (for most people) auto-rifles and shotgun pumps (1996 - Howard).

          More recently in NSW -The Ammo Bill in 2014 appeared! This knee-jerk was about putting restrictions & buyer details [on permanent record] when buying any 'pistol ammo' to (ostensibly) try and stop gang/drug "drive-by shootings" in Sydney's Wild/Ethnic West!

          It didn't work of course (as we told them) but our Premier Barrie O'Farrell was seen "to do something" ... so it was passed by NSW's parliament and now it is law !
