Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

I really get a chuckle from reading all the media stories and comments regarding gun control. The liberal press and gun control advocates don't have any good logical argument as to why more laws are needed so they resort to comments using the terms "gun nut", "crazies" etc. I gue...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

When waterfowl hunting you are limited to the number of rounds you can have in your gun at any given time. Most Semi-auto and Slide action shotguns hold 5-6 rounds and therefore hunters insert a plug, commonly a wooden dowel the length of the rounds that you need to keep from loading into the magazi...

Re: Mountain Lion

Back in the late 80's, (I don't remember the exact year) my wife saw one cross our back yard about 200 ft. from the house. We live west of town on the south side of the Spirit. I wasn't home at the time and was skeptical until about two days later when I got home from fishing and while I was putting...

Re: Gas tax and registration

Give everyone in Wisconsin a plate as part of their registration that covers them for the toll roads in Wisconsin and charge the out of staters! :D

I like the way you think ! :lol:

Now if we could just get it implemented ! :)

Gas tax and registration

I just read this on the TV 12 news site. A report to state lawmakers will recommend increasing the gas tax and raising vehicle registration and driver's license fees. The report to be delivered next week will include those options and others as a way to close the state's two billion dollar transport...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

I also think they should do a better job of arresting the people that fail the background checks that happen now. A substantial portion of those people probably shouldn't be walking the streets just due to stupidity... Now you are getting the right idea ! ! ! Enforce the laws we have instead of cre...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

Perhaps, or maybe you sell that gun to someone normally upstanding and they get caught shooting a deer, or heck, get pulled over on the way home. And maybe they're more than happy to help cut a deal. In the first place if he is an upstanding person he has every right to own the gun so even if he go...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

Kerry, You keep talking about tracing a gun back to the previous owner, but let me throw you a scenario. I purchased a handgun 20 years ago from a private owner. There is no record of my owning the gun. One night I am out and need some money so I sell it to a guy I met at the local pub. I have no id...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

Perhaps I didn't make my point clear. To purchase a new gun from a dealer requires a background check. Once I have the gun, what I do with it in regards to selling it in the future is the question. I still have a big concern with having a FFL dealer handle the sale as to what he is going to charge a...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

I have never looked into it closely, but from what I hear getting a permit to own one isn't easy and they are closely regulated. Most end up with collectors. I also understand there is a range somewhere near Vegas where they have a weekend when they can take them out and shoot them just for fun. In ...

I find it ironic that so many of the same people that firmly believe you should have to pass a drug test to get food stamps are so vehemently opposed to the idea of having to pass a background check to buy a gun... If I have to pass a drug test to earn the money, what is wrong with passing a drug t...

I have a couple of comments and questions for Kerry. 1. All guns sold, personal or private, must come with a cable, trigger or some other locking mechanism. I feel it is the buyers responsibility to secure their firearms. I don't feel that the burden should be on the seller to purchase something for...

My feeling are that the Packers are going to have their hands full beating the Vikings on Sunday.

With the advantage of the Dome and crowd noise they always play better at home.

This is going to be a hot topic for a long time. Personally I hope they are able to look at all the reasons things like this happen. To some, the first thing that they want to do is blame the gun.
