Re: 3 NY police Officers intentionally poisoned at Shake Shack

Heckuva tort case against Shake Shack. Maybe the happy ending will be that the cops get to retire to the beach.

Re: Private property (mine and neighbors)

I agree with those advising to call the game warden. Self help could quickly get out of hand, depending on how big a jerk the trespasser is. So don't do that except in defense of human life.

Re: Definition of "Premises" Regarding 51% Restaurants

Most bars have a license only for on-premises consumption. If they'll serve you on the patio, I would think either that's a part of their premises or they're violating the limits of their license. As a customer, if I were trying to stay clear of the law, I would not leap to the assumption the establ...

I keep going back to find the shelves fully stocked. I keep buying a couple of boxes of federal 200 round .223. And that's all I will buy. That and i did find 2 boxes of 555 round .22 LR that i snapped up for 19 bucks each.
My guess is that will work until they deplete their distribution centers.

Re: How High to Place a Demand Feeder?

I haven't measured the height of the tubes on my commercial demand feeder, but I've got game camera pictures of a hog chewing down. Then, as noted elsewhere, you've got to deal with raccoons. They can clean out $200 worth of feed in short order.

Re: This is How Custer Must Have Felt

You won't have time to get up in a tree after you find them. They will be long gone before you get a chance to get them in your sights. They are perhaps the smartest animal in the woods. And they can smell food buried under the dirt. Beat me to it, but absolutely correct. I've never shot a hog when...

Re: TX: anti gun New Yorker moves here

Texas regulations don’t require background checks for private sales of guns, such as buying from an individual or from some gun shows. If she's going to complain so much, she ought to get her facts straight instead of propagating the gun-show canard. A period after "private sales of guns" would hav...

Chicago's gun buyback

According to an AGG report, William Stewart Boyd traded his father’s old .38 caliber Smith & Wesson snub nose for less than $100 in a gun buyback in 2004. It was supposed to be destroyed, but somehow the same handgun with serial number J515268 was found next to a dead body involved in a police shoo...

West Virginia legislator wants to hold no-gun-zone proprietors liable for injuries

According to W.Va. Del. Brandon Steele, (R) 29th, legislation is needed to hold no-gun zones accountable in the event of a tragedy. “If you’ve taken away that person’s ability to protect themselves, then it’s incumbent on you to protect them,” explained Del. Steele who is seeking a revision in stat...

Re: Noncompliance Kneecaps New Zealand's Gun Control Scheme

It appears noncompliance continues to be a problem. Further, .22 rifles with up to 0-round magazines were exempted from the ban and have therefore skyrocketed in popularity. They are being imported in large numbers. https://bearingarms.com/cam-e/2019/11/13/many-new-zealanders-keeping-guns-buying/ Th...

You can request a new copy of your current license, so long as you’re more than 2 years from renewal. Maybe the new one will have the star.

To get my new DL, I had to go through a bunch of rigmarole. You need a birth certificate, and not just a photocopy.
