Re: Game ?

A) In places other than Hawaii, people hunt deer, boar and bear, none of which will be felled by 3 shotgun shells. That will only anger the beast and lead to maulings B) you assume that criminals follow such laws/restrictions. Ever heard of Chicago? or Paris? Or San Bernadino? All of which have very...

We have laws against illegal immigration and courts to determine if violations of those laws occured, but little appetite from one political party to enforce these laws.

The level of adulation I hear and see towards the military and Vets makes me uncomfortable . Any military establishment poses a potential threat to the citizens of a country; it is, like fire "a dangerous servant and a fearful master".
