I had to laugh about the "strict DUI laws". Maybe some states have them, but not here. There are people hauled into court after being ticketed 18 times for DUI.
Re: Deer killing people, of course deer don't kill people, but car accidents do. But usually there is vehicle damage. Many people worry about it happening when there is a deer/car collision, so the idea seems to be, lets just kill the deer before they get us. People need to be educated on what to watch for and when to expect the deer to be around. And people need to understand that we humans should not take every inch of space left on the planet.
From personal experience, I also am more fearful of human predators with guns than I am of animals like wolves. L
Once again, you said it like it is, techguy and from personal experience!
On boxing day we had a drive-by shooting in the busiest shopping district in Toronto. They missed their target but ended up killing a grade 12 student out at the boxing day sales.
It's making a difference. (Sad to say) With a national election coming up, there is already talk of legislation against unregistered guns. Talk is not action but from what I've seen regarding violence, it's way up on the radar now compared to where it was in the politicians frames of priorities even a month ago.
what the hell is the world coming to?!

We buy and eat meat, So I don’t have a problem with someone who goes out and hunts for it. As long as they are not cruel to the animals. They say that when you chase a deer, and its running, his/hers adrenalins starts to pump through his veins. It spoils the meat, it makes it tough. Most hunters, will not chase down a deer for that reason. Some people truly consider it their sport. If they are using the meat for their food supply. I find nothing wrong with it at all. As long as they follow the guidelines by the game commission. Those rules change from year to year depending upon the population of the animals
Years back on one of those TV magazine shows they did a little segment on some Game Farms. Where a “hunter” would go into a field about the size of a football field and “hunt” down their trophy. Most of these old animals came from Petting Zoo’s.
