This happened just next to the road I live on! Holy sh*t but I hope they ban these things soon. Incidentally there is a shop in the town centre that sells all kind of airguns, I have long wanted it banned as I think the mentality of some of the folk round here would lead to something like this.
I walk that road to get to the town centre, sometimes with dst (3). Not anymore I don't! DH has asked that I go elsewhere and it isn't like these people will be found or punished. Not until they do it again and fatally injure someone!
I don't know why these things aren't banned. I was hit by an air pellet when I was 15. I have a scar on my cheekbone just under my eye socket -another cm and I would have lost an eye. I was walking down the road with 3 friends and wallop -we never saw who did it
The worse thing is that the car is so distinctive that locals will know who they are but won't tell the police. Morons.
If I saw it, and when I heard the discription it did sound familiar, I would grass on them. There has already been a little boy killed in Scotland this year and another boy seriously injured, I don't want to hear of anyone else.
