I always thought that Guido was a bit of a chump-but he paid the price eh? I mean…hung, drawn and quartered…no comfy prison for baddies in those days…
Well… won’t be long now before we get the annual “officer…there are kids letting off fireworks!” calls…right after the “kids keep ringing my doorbell asking for sweets” calls begin to subside…
Of course we can always make time for these calls…at the expense of burglary and robberies, ahem.
There is a simple way to stop the firework calls-stop selling what are in essence, explosive pyrotechnics, to the public. However, the economy must come first eh? What about the poor families deprived of fun because of a few nutters eh?
Go to a display, says I.
I always find it amusing that we have such tight controls on firearms but none on:
- long bows
Baring in mind that up to the invention of (and for some years after too) the firearm, the bow was the infantry projectile weapon of choice.
Also… that fireworks contain all sorts of goodies that could be used to say, kill people.
I mean…why wait for that internet page on how to make a fertilizer bomb to load when you can buy one from the High Street firework shop?
Still… no matter.
Should such an event happen the local Police can be blamed for not ‘anticipating the event’…
Here’s hoping it’s a Q one.
