  •  Hunting is very regulated (6+ / 0-)

    The bullets, the rifles, where you can hunt, how far from the road you must be to shoot at a deer or bird, no loaded rifles in your vehicle - you can't load them until you park your car and start walking off to hunt.  When I was a prosecutor in Colorado a good part of my case load in county court consisted of hunting violations - unapproved rifles, unapproved ammo, etc.  For some reason, not a word from the NRA complaining about these restrictions.

    For someone to argue "I hunt with more powerful rounds" is bs - your selection of hunting ammo is limited by the state hunting regs.

      the person the diarist is quoting, that's the least wrong one. As a Navy Vet I would think you'd know that a 30.06 round can take the head off a deer at 200 yards, something that bullet in the picture would not. Sure you can't shoot those (usually) in coastal, flat areas when hunting, but in many areas you can.

    •  You prosecuted hunting laws in Colorado? (4+ / 0-)

      and you think you can't have a loaded rifle in your vehicle?

      Magazine can be full and in your rifle, only chamber need be empty.

      I'd hate to call the Division of Wildlife and see how many cases of wrong amo wrong rifle there are per year as compared to say... driving without insurance or DUI or any one of a hundred common offenses.

      I just don't know what to say.

      And "they" just want us to leave "them" alone to do whatever "they" wish to do with their guns wherever, and whenever ("put holes in things"... etc.).
