Canadian sniper makes kill shot at distance of 3.5 KILOMETRES


Re: A new low for The Reg!

Yes, it's killing and hence repungent. (Or at least should be.)

However, it's in a war zone and snipers tend to be among the best (ie least) in terms of collateral damage. The terrorist/enemy combatant is a legitimate target.

Glorifying the killing is wrong. Respect to the sniper is not. You need to be careful not to mix the two up (that applies to all posters...)

DOI: not a gun person, but glad that some are, but also sad that they are needed. It's complicated and we shouldn't pretend it's not.
