'Do Gooders' when I refer to them are the brainless mornos that come up with ridiculous laws such as:
Not being allowed to smack children - to try and stop child abuse??!
Eh... HELLO!! Last time I checked it was always illegal to abuse a child, now all we have to show for the inability to exert basic discipline is a
bunch of lawless toerags that get away with murder, practically literally these days. Aww.. poor little Johnny had a hard childhood, mustn't smack
him it will upset him.. Oh poor little Johnny just murdered a 4 yeard old and filmed it on his mobile.. oh dear oh dear.
Banning all firearms - Naive people like 'Mothers against Guns'
So they think that banning firearms rids the streets of them? Sorry to burst the bubble but it has only made things worse. Violent crime has increased
and there are more violent burglaries as the criminals know that no-one is armed.
The majority of guns used in crimes are and always have been illegally owned ones anyway, the only people that don't have them now are good law
abiding people. You always get the odd exception like the Dunblane moron, but that happens sadly.
Someone hacked up some kids with a machete in a school a week or two after, you can still buy one though.
What about if they go in and bludgon them to death with a spade? Going to ban the garden spade too?
The problem is the people, not the tool. And the scary thing is no matter what you do you are always going to get rotten apples.
And a blanket law banning replica firearms would damage people's hobbies including collecting, re-enactments, etc. But the replica weapons used the
majority of the time in an inappropiate way are the cheap 'toys' - they should be banned.
The serious ones that cost hundreds of pounds do not need to be however.
I also can't stand it when people are naive enough to think that there is always a peaceful solution. When sometimes there isn't one.
It's like when firefighters have to start small fires to cut off the path of a big forest fire - sometimes you have to fight fire with fire and there
is no two ways about it.
So that's the sort of thing I would refer to as 'Doo-Gooder' activities -
Uneducated knee-jerk reactions that when analysed properly cause more damage than good. People who have a very blinkered view of life but are arrogant
enough to think they know so much - when they obviously don't.
