    I would like to think that none of those things have happened to me BECAUSE I own lots of guns. When you walk from the house to the truck with gun cases and targets and such folks do seem to notice. Well, that and the cannon in the front yard but hey...

    I will volunteer to be the Polar Bear officer. It looks like he has the job of contacting the Polar Bear Patrol personnel not actually getting involved with the bear directly. That is keeping with reducing the whole human bear interactions thingy. Shoot, I could do that from down here. Less likely to actually interact with the bear you understand.

    It's a good thing they aren't down here. The NFS closed Juniper Wilderness Area in the Ocala National Forest for awhile because of ... bears. Imagine that. Bears in a wilderness area. Wonder what brainiac made that call.

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    My wife's cousin had a very large room filled with firearms. I mean filled. Floor to ceiling. It had everything imaginable inside. Twos and threes of many. That was all that was in the room. Just firearms. There were racks on the floor for rifles and shelves on the walls for handguns. I was privileged to be in that room twice. Some things he handed me I still have fond memories of. You, sir, have him beat. You must have a house filled with doors that must be shoved closed.

    Would not be anything special if you had grown up in the south, in a small town that had hosted a major battle during the "Former Unpleasantness".

    We had cannon at the park, cannon on the courthouse lawn, cannon at the museum, cannon in front of stores, and several people did have cannon in the front yard.

    We fired cannon when we made a touchdown at football games!

    No polar bears, but we did have the cannon.

    That and I think the Rock Island Arsenal was kept in business just making 105s for the VFW displays.

    Our VFW did not have the traditional 105 display,

    We had 6 pound brass Napoleons with green patina, big wooden wheels and caissons hitched behind.

    We did not have polar bears but we had access to the Twilight Zone.
