Yep, no doubt.
Yep, I guess it's to hard for some of you guys to understand what I'm saying so I'll dumb it down. Since the sheriff wouldn't be able to enforce these new laws the whole thing doesn't make a difference. The sheriff didnt have to go on record and say anything. The laws are unenforceable. By the slim chance that someone did get arrested the door would open for judicial review. If this were to happen many of us believe the law would be struck down, thus being void. This wouldn't be a bad thing because it would get it to the courts. This is how we test new laws. I didn't make the rules but this is how it works. The sheriff talking about means nothing thus opening him up to weeks of discussion for no real gain.
Brian I've read a lot of your comments, the sheriff would do the best he can and if for some reason and some how he caught you, you could battle the courts for all of us. So step up let the sheriff catch you then go to court and get it thrown out for all of us. That's the way things are done in this country.
The proper way to deal with this law is for our sheriff to do his best to enforce the law he believes can not be enforced. If someone gets arrested in this process then that person goes to the courts and lets our judicial system decide its fate. There was no reason other then politics for the sheriff to say anything. Sometimes it's better to stay quite and let people assume your not so bright then to open your mouth and remove all possible doubt.
"can't make this stuff up" most of this thread is made up. It's like the Hidden star wars book the author didn't make into a movie because it was too far fetched. What gov't isn't divided. Where in the world is this happening. Gov't is about being divided. What Association of people do you guys know that aren't divided. Nothing is worse its the same and will continue to be the same while we sit on the Internet and argue rather than taking our views to the courts, schools, churches, clubs, Washington and the streets. The fears I see on this thread are a bit much. Where are the reasonable people. Oath keepers wtf. Good luck with that. For all of you that can't gaurd your property and liberty while you sleep let me know, I can drive out and watch the door while you rest. I've got guns too. Of course there will be a small monthly fee.
This conversation is getting old. Changes are ony made through educating the kids as to what guns are,where they come from, and how to use them safely. Every citizen should have a gun safety card and without such you can't buy a gun or ammo. The talk about Chicago is skewed also. The reason they have the strictest gun laws is because the poor people on the south and west sides all have guns and have been killing each
Other for decades. The difference is the growth in their population. The armed are killing the armed and far to often innocent by standers are in the cross fire. The law is there so they have a reason to apprehend and hold these gang members. People are not getting killed because the criminals have guns and the law abiding citizens don't. The poor communities children are doing all the killing because schools are closing and neighborhoods are being integrated. These kids are passing through other gangs areas, which is the economic engine in these areas. It's like lord of the flies in these neighborhoods. What these folks need is better opportunities through education and parenting. Which unfortunately isn't going to happen. Poor people throughout the world arm themselves kill each other and eventually revolt against the institutions that they blame for their blight. Our government is about elected officials getting rich. Even the most well intended get corrupt by the loot. It's been this way since the beginning. You would think the first program they would cut would be what they are taking, such as their two week spring break. Which,by the way, is extremly close to their feb. winter break and their 3 week holiday break. Don't forget about Their week long thanksgiving break and their week long labor day break. Not to mention their 3 week August summer break. It's like Europe in Washington. We need real Americans in gov't. lower the salaries, pay them by the hour at work, let them pay a portion if not all of their health care and no pensions without twenty years of service. Also maybe Heath care ends when the job ends. They should try going on cobra. Bottom line is the gov't elected officials are the takers and we not only let them but we encourage it. Sad
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
Local schmocal, your a local where ever you decide to set up permanent residence. It makes no difference for how long or what you do. Once you move there you are a local. All the other BS is really a definition of what kind of local you are. People are so protective of their little status. It only means something if you make it mean something. Only the drunks at the bar care.
Hi Steve, hope all is well. At whiteface, the backcountry I'm currently skiing, the area called the slides has a patrol that checks that you have the proper gear. If not you can't go. They had a avalanche that killed someone in 2011 and multiple rescue scenarios that led them to believe it is cheaper and easier to have some checking rather then have 10-20 searching.
I think all the positive press that backcountry skiing got in the paper increased skiers desire to go check it out. The articles could have mentioned more of the dangers such as the cliffs and avalanches. All we really need is a sign that states the proper gear needed to venture in the back country. A snow boarder needs a split board or snow shoes. All backcountry travelers need a probe, shovel, beacon, food, and just in case gear. If they need rescue they get charged if they didn't bring the proper gear. There are times the well prepared need help. Hopefully these folks have a hunting or fishing license. This license covers backcountry rescue.
