    I'm going to the extreme here, but if you're making a bomb or plotting to kill someone in your own house is that no one's business? BTW where are you fishing? A guide friend of mine who fished the back country out of Key West carried a mini 14 in his boat in case someone tried to hijack it. He told me that he fired a couple of shots over another boat that was approaching him in a suspicious way once. That was back in the early 80s.

    My wife and I fish during the week. Not many people around on Monday through Friday.

    We’ve been all over the west coast from St Pete to Cedar Key. Some back areas in the mangroves, completely out of sight of anyone.

    I know this is off subject but I found your post interesting because I take my boat to the Bahamas every now and then on fishing trips. Ask a Bahama customs official if it is legal to have a firearm in your boat and the answer is "We recommend it just make sure you declare it." Guess they have a piracy problem.

    I'd be willing to bet you are dead wrong. Most deer hunters do not have the luxury of hunting private land or lease land. Tens of thousands of deer hunters in Florida and I suspect most states hunt public forests where ATV's are not allowed off the road. I no longer hunt but when I did I usually parked in a designated parking area and carried my stand a mile or two into the woods. I've drug out many a deer from deep in the woods.

    yeah, I'm going to count on some snowflake who needs to carry a gun to go buy a sandwich to protect my rights. Go back under your bed in your gated community.

    So when liberals wear masks and march in mass they are protesters but when this young lady has the balls to show her face and make a video she is a snowflake?....I get it.

    I think there may be a piracy problem in The Bahamas, but I think running into drug traffickers is a much bigger one. Once again there can be exemptions but the applicant for the exemption should have to show real proof of the need to have large capacity magazines for the firearm(s) involved.

    I was a charter member of the NRA (Naked Runners Association) back in the 70's when streaking was in.

    Ours was after a high school football game a bunch of us kids were riding around in a VW bus drinking beer and smoking weed. The song The Streak was popular and someone suggested we make a run through McDonald's. Out jumped 6 guys and 2 girls. We ran through the front door and the driver was supposed to pick us up at the side door. The SOB drove into the next parking lot and locked the doors. It was pretty funny but could have ended in disaster.
