Why should we have to wear helmets when sitting on NSW bicycles on NSW roads when we don't have to wear flak jackets when sitting on NSW picnic rugs in NSW National Parks?????
Nothwithstanding the stark warning from its very own Office of Environment and Heritage of...
'a major risk to the public when recreational shooting begins in March' and that 'the risk of death or serious injury was high as well as the potential for the 34 million annual visitors to decline due to concern at safety in parks from bullets and also from arrows shot by bow hunters'
...this government still plans to go ahead with its recreational rambo policies (and most probably to leave bicycle helmet law in place...sigh).
It is utterly outrageous that unless otherwise decided, state-sanctioned-'hunger-games' will be coming to National Parks near all of us very soon...
...god (or whoever we all praise/ignore) help us!
