Going to Norway? Leave the LR guns!

The Norwegian Supreme Court just ruled that *any* shot that *may* cause unnecessary suffering for animal is punishable by, I believe, 2 years in prison.

Isn't this just great? Has anyone ever fired a shot at an animal that didn't carry at least a 0.0000000001% chance of missing the vitals?

Not only can you now go to jail for wounding an animal, you can do so for absolutely clean kills at ranges that a judge deems "irresponsible"! You may actually have to document your shooting abilities to the court if someone as much as reports you for firing at 200-250 yards!

Long Range Hunting just became of academic interest only to us.

God &*%$ed socialists.

Get rid of some of those Law writers/Politicians, clearly they have too much time on their hands and are resorting to extremist ideas in order to justify their job.

My Grandpa used to say, "In a democracy you get the government you deserve, so work hard to protect your freedoms."

No one deserves that situation you described, so what form of government do you have in Norway?

Re: Going to Norway? Leave the LR guns!

sounds like you need a 50 bmg fully automatic, maby 3 or 4 hunters shooting at the same time, same animal. Still might only wound the animal. A good lawyer could prove any shot to be less than 100%.

Re: Going to Norway? Leave the LR guns!

Been thinking it about it some more. This is so crazy, I expect Kalifornia to pick it up.

Just think. "Politically correct shots"!! The game wardens will be triangulating the shooter and game to feed a computer to give distance. This distance must then be considered based on the weather conditions, eyesight of the shooter, general shooting ability, cartridge, bullet actually used, etc.

Lawyers live for dubious laws like this!
