  1. There is loads of hysteria over guns as the moment. Ok in some urban areas its not suprising this
    stuff goes on, and its unfortunate that innocent people get caught up in the crossfire, but places
    like nightclubs have been getting shot up since I was born 30 years ago, drug dealers have *always*
    shot at each other and the old bill and you can pass all the bloody laws you want and people will
    still shoot each other if they are so inclined.

    However, a few months ago there was a shooting near where I live. This is a relatively quiet
    surburban outer part of Reading, where it turned out a *17* year old lad from London had gone to
    someones house. An argument had ensued, in which the 17 year old produced a small-calibre pistol and
    discharged it a number of times at another young person.

    You will be pleased to know the perpetrator was caught and the victim did not suffer major injuries
    - but what was the cause of this argument, which inspired a young man to try and end the life of
    another with a deadly weapon?

    A dispute over the price of a *car*.....
