Brits Require ID To Buy Hunting Magazines

Country sports enthusiasts are furious at a decision by Britain’s biggest newsagent to ban children from buying shooting magazines after a campaign by animal rights activists.

WH Smith says youngsters under 14 will not be sold shooting titles, even though it is legal to hold a shotgun licence below that age.

    My British clients all caution me about the track the USA is on. They tell me that we need to get rid of Obama or we will be following the same Socialist path they have fallen for.

    Common Sense? Rules were created so that we don’t have to think for ourselves.
