    They have perhaps changed it then, it was originally reported as 19!

    Either way its not bloody good!

    Just had another look at it and story is now emerging that it didnt actually happen in the school but a nearby street.

    It may turn out to be minor but it will not help the anti airgun feeling north of the border just now.

    How bad the fallout will be depends on the details but like you say its not good, certainly gives the Antis some more ammunition.

    Pity they are idiots who cant be reasoned with.

    EDIT: I like how they start of with incorrect info that (just happens to) make it out its worse then it is then slowly change it as the correct info comes in :(

    Usual BBC crap reporting, every other agency is reportin 6 kids involved. Sounds more like some yoof running around with a BB gun popping a cap in his mates ass during lunchtime break but I'm sure the SNP/BBC will make it sound like Hungerford. :mad::mad:

    Either way, I hope the book gets thrown at whoever is responsible.

    Now's the time for the Scottish Judicary to show they have some teeth and make use of the laws that already exist. It's a firearms offence, now they should treat it as such.

    It's quite clear that even if airguns were banned, you'd still get utter twats using them in such a manner because only the law abiding would hand them in, and the only thing i think that could discourage these idiots in that event is some good time indoors... at least then they'd not be in the public population to do it again.

    It's difficult when events are still unravelling, but I hope the media shows the same vigour when a sentence is passed as they do reporting the event itself... i hope the injuries are minor at worst.

    Hopefully the thinking behind the sentence handed out for the idiot that threw a fire extinguisher off a roof will find common ground here.

    I thought this quote was interesting- airgun?

    "We carried on walking when we heard a bang, like a small explosion, and all these pellets came out from behind the hedge. Luckily they missed"

    Hail of pellets

    I heard there was a hail of pellets, your not going to get a hail of pellets from a pcp it sounds more like a airsoft automatic shooting plastic bbs. Hope all ok...
