'Shooting porn' should be on the top shelf

#1
Oh FFS. Get a life.

"Popular magazines about country sports such as Shooting Times and The Field should be on the top shelf alongside pornography, according to the country's largest animal rights organisation.

In a new report Animal Aid claims that the “lurid, pro-violence content" of country sports magazines could have a "corrosive, long-lasting effect on impressionable young minds”.

So what happens if I want to knock one out over a dead squirrel, I won't be able to reach the ******* things.

I spent a rather pleasant day at the Fenland Country Fair yesterday, seemed to be no shortage of first timers including kids having a crack at some clays plus the hounds were out and about making friends. I've never seen "lurid pro-violence content" in any country sport. I have seen it from the animal rights brigade.

Please move this to the NAAFI so I can say what I really think about these cretins. ( Sneak-preview, it may involve house fires).

What about cookery magazines then? Apart from the vegetarian specialists, they all cover the preparation of dead animals.
Do the Animal Aid people just want to conveniently ignore how food gets to our tables. Impressionable young minds need to learn the facts about the countryside.

Apart from shooting a couple of small birds with an air rifle years ago, (and that was an eye-opener, they thrashed around like billy-o, until I finished them off) I have not gone game shooting.

Living in London I would be hard pressed to find the field sports mags mentioned. It is, however, easy to find the latest reviews of assorted computer games where the objective is to steal, rob, and murder your way to the top, with the latest array of modern weapons, although I'm sure, Saturday night specials are included.

If the concerned people are really serious, maybe games, with increasingly lifelike graphics, glorifying the killing of humans might be of more concern.

Round these parts most gats are either handguns,(illegal) or sawn-offs,(illegal).

Pheasant and game chips, mmm.

Wow, they're really with the times aren't they, when's the last time you bought a bongo mag ffs? That's more telling about the crackheads who oppose hunting.

Womens weeklies should be on the top shelf. Therefore women wont be able to reach and gain inspiration from the usual cheery headlines such as "i chopped my boyfriends penis off cos he only bought cherry lambrini not peach" or "i have 6 kids by 7 different dads but its not my fault i have a giant vagina" or "i was raped by a ghost"

Go shopping with a step-ladder then.

Do I have to think of every little detail?

The Tepegraph said:
Professor Peter Squires of the University of Brighton Children [sic] said children under 14 are not allowed to shoot without supervision yet they can look at adverts for guns and pictures of dead animals.
I'm led to believe that if children unwittingly wander into a supermarket they can see not just photos, but actual dismembered dead animals. :shock:

Should sausages go top shelf ?

I've shopped at WH Smiths for as long as I can remember, but seriously I will boycot them forevermore over this.

Now need to first parade the outrage bus as I can easily walk there tomorrow and confront them over it. Followed by a letter to their head office.

This isn't even a PC thing. It's just bending over for a pressure group.
I bet they are bricking themselves

To what effect has reading magazines like shooting times and such have on you?
In my formative years I read every cowboy comic known to man, and to the best of my knowledge in all my years I have never shot an Apache yet.
