    Ian, you should move out of MD. MD is too close to DC for one thing. You're probably eating crab and other such things from the Chesapeake Bay and spending too much time in Baltimore.

    Living there has obviously warped your already messed up socialist thinking. The democrats have controlled MD for so long it is not very representative of most of the other states in the US.

    quote;few people get shot (including by the Police).

    That is where you are wrong. Even the police cannot shoot people, most of the time. You read stories about how the police fired 300 rounds at a suspect and MAYBE he is hit with one of them, or the officer fires the entire clip at the suspect and he runs away unharmed. But that leads to the question, would YOU want to be around a civilian when HE is shooting at some lawbreaker, or in YOUR house when your significant other is trying to take down an "intruder", especially if that intruder is you coming home late?

    Ian is like the people from New York who move to Arizona and then complain that EVERYTHING about New York is better, but refuse to move back there.

    Look at the numbers people. 100,000 gun-related injuries every year.

    Are you guys just too dumb to shoot a gun straight?

    And DC is representative of this country. Just not in the House of Representatives.

    Thank God the President of the United States is steering this Great Country on a steady course.

    Hail to the Chief.

    If you want to get guns off the street, keep yourself safe in DC [maybe the criminal you shoot had Obama on his list too] have a look at this true
    example of American freedom:

    5500+ nice lots of pistols and longarms up for auction. Send it to your mates in England so they can salivate. Or laugh...

    And they ship anywhere within the laws.

    This is an example of an outstanding citizen. Giving up his guns to keep the country safer.

    There is no need to keep a firearm in this day and age. That is what we have the Police for.

    Or are these guys somehow deficient at their job? Do you need to keep guns in America because the Police are no good?

    I trust my safety to them. And my baton.

    Bear hunting?

    Most Americans have never seen a bear, let alone have the need to hunt one.

    Palin has. But she's also rich. So needs to be taxed more.

    None of you will ever be rich, except the guy on here who owns his own baseball team.

    So drop the dream. And God Bless England.

    But you wouldn't shoot the little thing, would you Cookie?

    Last year in the whole of America, there were three bear-related deaths. That's right....three.

    Over 30,000 Americans in the same year died as a result of guns.

    The ANSWER is apparently YES! Most of you, except possibly Ian, know what the QUESTION is!

    That one particular bear was probably small at around 350 pounds. He was sitting under my tree eating a granola bar which I shared with him. He sits on my porch and we wrap grape vines together, he leaves me alone as long as I share the grapes generously. He is a friendly. He had a cut over his eye one day which I doctored up. He respects me, but I respect him more. The neighbors get alittle tiffed over him being fed, donuts, ( his favorite) apples, and granola, and one day they tried to shoot him, instead taking out my water barrel and putting a few slugs in the front of my camp on the wall. They claimed they were target shooting, but I am afraid, my bear was the target. He never bothers anyone and is getting old with me. He is now gray-haired. A few years ago, he brought his youngins around for me to see. I admired them from the distance. He has made the newspaper many times in my area because I did columns on wildlife, camping and hiking. I got a huge response with many people sending in their stories of one, a Sneaky Snake which was funny, all kinds of animal doings. I loved them.

    I think I answered your question if I would shoot him. Although, one day, I nearly had to thanks to my husband's stupidity. That was the day I threatened him with the D-Word, if he didn't stop playing with the bears and wanting to feed him, handfeed him bologna.

    Our bear, his name is the Yard Sale Bear, by the way, came down this one particular day. I could see he was moody. We were sitting on the porch and he was sitting under the tree you see in the picture. Well, my beloved went inside and got his pound of square bologna out and started up the hill to him. I said, easily, " ah, I wouldn't do that... he looks grumpy."

    As all men, what does women know.

    So, he continued up the hill. The bear started walking away from him. Well, he had to follow with his hand out with the square bologna. Then, the bear stopped, turned his head to look backwards, giving him the hairy-eyeball. I said easily, " okay, come down now, now..."

    The bear walked, he walked. I watched with my eyes getting bigger.

    Then, the bear stopped turned around again, this time, looking meaner.

    I said easily, " if you don't come down now, I am going to divorce you, I swear if I have to shoot this bear..."

    The bear started walking. My nearly divorced husband started walking with the square bologna.

    THEN, the bear stopped. HE stood up. He turned around. His fur stood straight up.

    I stood up. I easily went inside got the gun, which at the time we only took the 22, and came outside. I started to aim, and I was so mad... it was a coin toss at WHO...

    My beloved husband backed down, never turning his back, just walking back a step at a time, and once, a few feet away the bear got back down on all 4's and walked away.

    The point to this story is they don't like friggin square bologna

    *Addt note for Ian about a 22, it ain't going to kill a bear, it would only make him madder.

    We have bears and lions like you guys have rappers out east. The rappers are much more dangerous.

    Cookie: NEVER feed a bear, you know its a death sentence for him. Against the law too.

    My trusty sidearm has scared and educated many bears to keep away from the ignorant humans that would kill such a noble beast.

    Used to have a FULL TIME lion killer here on the county payroll. Killed thousands, sadly and finally they put him to pasture. But they are back, and really a menace - found a few "watching" me from a distance.

    Beautiful animals, but I would never let my kid hike without his trusty German Shepherd. Or myself without a weapon.

    But I would much rather meet a mountain lion than a crack rapper in DC on a dark night.

    But most Americans do not live in the outback with lions and bears for company.

    They think they do, which is why I am trying to awake them from this myth.

    Show me your bear, and I'll let you keep your gun.

    Else the Government will take it away from you.

    And you will comply as Americans love rules.

    Why do Americans love rules so much?

    But YOU live with 'lions and bears' in DC that have a far lower system of ethics, intelligence, and instinct than my wildlife. At least a lion kills for a natural and valid reason, sustenance. And lions RAISE up their offspring and nurture them far better than many humans.

    Only humans and housecats seem to kill for sheer pleasure, therefore, you need a sidearm even more than myself.

    Unfortunately, you might have to buy a stolen one in an alley if you are not a citizen. And that would be your main reason to choose citizenship, that most unique American right to bear arms....


    As to rules- Americans notoriously dislike rules, just after the Italians. At least the ones I am exposed to.
