Walking back from school with Molly tonight. Group of the very nice Woldgate College boys walking in front of us. One of them, for some unknown reason, has a plastic rifle slung over his shoulder. Obviously plastic at the distance we were behind him, but from a little way back - not so sure.
But I do know one thing - he certainly wouldn't have done that in Birmingham. He'd be surrounded by large black suited policemen quicker than he could say Armed Response Unit. Birmingham would be shut down for hours and chaos would ensue.
Just raised a smile today. Different lives eh?
