  •  I'd urge you to give your firearms to someone (0+ / 0-)

    who lives far away from you. You sound angry and have irrational ideas about hunters. Angry people with guns prone to confrontations sometimes end up killing someone.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      Since I already live far away from mass numbers of people. My ideas about hunters aren't the least bit irrational, I simply expect hunters to be able to read my Posted signs, or at least recognize them as placing my property off limits to their guns and murderous intent toward any living things that happen to live on my property. For those who can't manage that much, I'm always glad to explain it carefully to them in person. They may not be happy with that explanation, but they all abide by it so they don't have to deal with me, my family members, the local constabulary, the state wardens, or the federal land officers. Running afoul of any of those can be quite a bit more expensive than the hunting license (which comes with a brochure that also explains these exclusions).

      And not to worry (or justify your dickishness). Unless you come armed deep into my property and demand that I allow you to shoot animals (or livestock, or pets, or people if your aim is rotten) who live here, you will never encounter my anger or see my shotgun. Or any other of our tools/toys that could serve as weapons (bows/crossbows, swords, machetes, hatchets, axes, mauls, chainsaw, the DR Brush Mower/Mulcher, any handy garden/harvest tool with sharp steel edge and long handle, or even the spudzuka).

      Nifty how that works, isn't it?
