    Not to offay with twitter...in fact I sent my first 2 tweets to Finian Mc Grath.

    Are we tweeting to @RTE_PrimeTime and using the #rtept, #Ireland and #guns...?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 40,053 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Sparks


    Yeah, but the #rtept should take priority, then the @RTE_PrimeTime address, then #guns and then #Ireland. Depends on how much room you have in the tweet (that lovely 140 character limit...)

    Given the current balls-up over the headshop legislation, I'm wondering if Prime Time be changing topic for tonight?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 40,053 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Sparks


    I don't know if they could prep a program and have it swapped in that fast. Or that they'd think it worth it if the Dail has the problem sorted.

    On the other hand, opening the Six-One News with "Tonight, for one night only, ecstasy, ketamine and crystal meth are all legal in Ireland"... that's kindof a big magnet of a line :D

    Don't know how true this is but I've been told that William Eagan is going on tonight.

    He would probably be a good speaker on our behalf.

    Definitely on the legal aspects of it, but to be honest, there's one message that's really important to get out tonight to the audience of Prime Time, and it's something like this:
    The most important thing to remember is that the law keeps the public safe. The Firearms Act prohibits the Gardai from giving out firearms licences if doing so would create a threat to the public or the peace and if that threat arises after the licence is given out, the Firearms Act empowers them to revoke the licence instantly. Firearms licence owners are vetted thoroughly by the Gardai and licences are only issued where there's a valid reason for having the firearm, where the applicant has a safe place to use it and a secure place to store it, and these things are checked by the Gardai both during the application and at random inspections after the licence is issued. While there are problems with the Firearms Act, they're problems that only affect sportspeople, they don't compromise public safety and can be readily resolved by the Oireachtas in a very straightforward manner if they so wished.

    Joe Public doesn't much care about the legislation mess, or the rows or anything else, not until he or she knows about that bit first.

    Problem is, I timed it and that takes 45 seconds to say, 55 if you say it without rushing. I don't think I've ever seen someone given 45 uninterrupted, unedited seconds to speak on Prime Time who wasn't a presenter.

    Bit of a disagreement already between the Nargc and Wdai over this programme , not good.Everybody needs to pull together on this.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 27,279 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Cass


    What does he know about firearms?

    Can he answer from a firearm owner perspective in terms of mechanism, functionality, etc?

    To be honest, this programme is such a high-risk activity given its previous history, I could understand people disagreeing about whether or not to do it. In fact, if nobody was saying "here lads, hold up, this could be awful", I'd have a hell of a lot more questions than if there was a row.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,824 ✭✭✭ bpb101


    is it live or recorded.

    About fifty-fifty with "who thought this was a good idea in the first place?" I would wager.

    Any chance of putting the addresses in here to e mail and send messages to? I know it's in the proposal page somewhere but could be handy have it all to hand
