He was just out for a casual strive in the countryside. If his name were Joe Christian Fundamentalist, we’d have cause to be concerned.

A MAN who had ammunition in his pocket and a loaded pistol on the back seat of his car when he was pulled over told police he was, “going hunting with my uncle”.
The gun was ready to fire when police pulled over Mahmud Jihad, 26, in Rooty Hill on Tuesday.
Also in a bag in the back seat was a tazer, Mount Druitt local court heard yesterday.
A further three pistols – including a Russian semi-automatic – were found when police raided Jihad’s Shalvey home later the same day.
Along with the cache of guns and ammunition found in the bedroom of the builder’s labourer, was $59,550 in cash.
Jihad yesterday faced court on 15 charges, including having a firearm in a public place.
The court heard Jihad was sentenced to 12 months’ jail in 2005 for similar offences.
