    those my age), because there are more. To me, that's, at best, a wash for you.

    (I respect you, because of what you write about what you do. I was at the College of Natural Resources, USU, with majors in Wildlife Biology, and Fisheries Biology in the late sixties. I also had a couple of professional jobs, in the field, with The State of Utah, at that time. Flaming Gorge, and Lake Powell, specifically. RKBA? KV and his crowd are zealots, in the worst sense. You, it still looks to me like are not.)

    There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

      than the chance to see a mountain lion in the wild. For all the time I have spent in places where they hang you would think that I would just once get a chance. No. I guess it's not my fate.

      I don't think that KV is a zealot. He believes what he believes, but his biggest goal is to evangelize not to the left about guns but to gun owners about the left. He believes as I do that there are many gun owners who would be a fit with the Democratic party if they would just quit listening to the fear mongers.

      When I first joined RKBA those fear mongers were all on the right, now sadly too many are on the left and are fueling the fear that the NRA likes to instill in people who have and enjoy their firearms.

      When you step out for an issue sometimes that is the only thing you are about here. There is much more to the people in RKBA than most give credit for. ban nock for instance is a very interesting dude and one of our most talented and evocative writers.

      Thank you, btw.

      And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine

      •  I've gone head to head with bannock. You don't (2+ / 0-)

        look for controversy in this area. I do. I was instrumental in helping to get K9K run out of here, and we're all better off for it. And I still can't force bannock to disclose who he really is, but I'll agree with you that he's very sophisticated.

        I've been gang attacked by RKBA three times in the last couple of years. They gave me, what, 50, 100 HR's (I don't remember you in there). That was under the old rules. Since then, zero.

        But, anyway, bannock shills for RMEF, and that should say all that's necessary for anyone really willing to do the research.

        Have a good one.
