    article on Democrats wanting to make hunting ammunition illegal. Just read the headline and check out the picture.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      That is the kind of lie (hunting ammo?) that the right has to keep telling in order to keep the base foaming at the mouth with anger.

      •  Just take a quick look. I brought it up for the DH (5+ / 0-)

        and he just laughed. The idiocy is stunning. I still have not read the article - no need. Just reading the ammunition box was enough for me. How the fuck anybody could call that hunting ammunition is beyond me. Marauding bands of deer? Now I know that if you live in deer areas and have a garden....... but I never ever thought the bastards were beating down your door, rapin' your wimmen and children. LOL!

      I've read that .223 is already illegal for deer in at least some places.

      The article was nowhere near as bad as I'd expected, though. The hunting regulations required hollow point bullets -- the draft legislation would have banned them. Looks more like careless drafting than the evil conspiracy that the conservatives crave to believe.

      There's an object lesson there in trying to regulate technology.

      Hollow points make sense for hunting: the bullet expands on impact, it makes a bigger hole, and the animal dies faster.

      Freedom isn't free. Patriots pay taxes.

      •  Yes .223 is illegal in a lot if not most areas (0+ / 0-)

        for hunting deer.

        We have a law in California that says that it is illegal to use buckshot to hunt deer unless you are hunting in an area that does not allow shotguns.

        Yeah. Figure that one out.
