JUST who determines how much land would be considered hunting propery...100 acres,,,,50 acres....25 acres. That itself is not a valid argument, as there have been people wounded or killed on "Hunting Property" as you call it because of.....thats right CARELESS and IRRESPONSIBLE people. SO in your argument because a lady lost her life (and that is very tragic and sad and i pray for her family and any family that loses someone) lets make a law against discharging firearms. Why stop there....because someone was wounded or killed on 100 acre "Hunting Property" let make a law against discharging firearms on that also. Just like you cant legistate morality ....you cant legistate against stupidity and carelessness. It only hinders us repsonible and law abiding citizens...oh yeah and us selfish ones too.
quoted from story " Only one person in a packed boardroom spoke in support of the ordinance". That right there should let our entire Commissioners and the Sheriff know that this so called keeping us safe ordinance is for the birds. Many are correct it only hurts small business and law abiding responsible gun owners and hunters. You all need to think very hard because i am sure i will not be the only one keeping track of who votes for what on this come the VERY NEXT ELECTION. AND when that time comes i will bring this matter up and do my dangest to make sure whomever voted for this will not be re-elected EVER!!
Okay this is for MR Sims, i live in your district and have already made it known to you i do not like this ordinance. Today by looking at this map, i think my family lives right on the border of a white and green zone. We bought property in the back of a subdivision and eventually built a house there and there is a substantial portion of woods behind our house. My husband hunts deer back here and usually gets one deer a year sometimes two. he never tries for more than two because we are only 3 person family and that is enough to keep meat in the house until the next season. if this ordinance is passed it will effect his right to provide meat for our family. it will also prevent keeping the deer population down in this area which will probably cause more vehicle wrecks. of course that cannot be an exact given. i am sure many more famiies throughout newton will be effected in the same way.
Really???? my daughter brough home her "a parent guide to school safety" yesterday. inside the heading is NCSS Emergency Management Plan. HELLO this is not safety prevention it only lets us know of NCSS reaction to an emergency or tradegy. IF Y'ALL WANT TO MAKE OUR SCHOOLS SAFE HIRE ARMED DEPUTIES TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN. WE SHOULD BE STRIVING FOR PREVENTION NOT **REACTION!!!!
I agree with dennistay53. Not only Newton County but all the schools are being slow to put an armed guard at our schools to protect out most precious children. This should priority number one for all our police forces, the school board and the county board of commisioners. Funds and personnel from the NCSO must be appropriated for this. No ifs ands or buts!!!!! I do not agree with having a principal or some other adminstrator or teachers having the guns but we need an trained armed officer at every single school!!!!
THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY & HOPEFULLY THEIR REPLACEMENTS WILL BE REPUTABLE & DESERVING TO WORK WITH OUR KIDS!!!
ccandrews2004 - i am going by what is in the story - if you read the VERY 1ST PARAGRAPH - it states "his property". obviously you have information that the general public reading this story does not. i am siding with PROPERTY OWNERS, we have a right to protect our property & to remove anyone off of it that we do not want on it. Also, i dont care how much training someone says they have on guns - firing a gun into the air is just plain stupid & reckless!
THIS MOM SHOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED ALSO!!! i say also since they arrested the property owner (shouldnt have but they did). SHE CAME ONTO HIS PROPERTY!!!!! WITH A WEAPON & FIRED IT. END OF STORY. THE JUVENILES SHOULD BE FINED FOR TRESSPASSING. THE FRIEND OF THE MOM SHOULD BE BROUGHT UP ON SOME KIND OF ACCESSORY TO A CRIME CHARGE. HEY DA ZON - i hope you do the right thing this time in this case. All the property owners of this county should raise hell about this situation right here!!!!! So in this story it doesnt say if the property owner had asked them to leave & they wouldnt or if he had called 911 & was waiting for NCSO to come escort them off. With that said, alot of 15 year old boys could be mistaken for older so he may have not known if they were legal adults or not. With all that said, by the events of this story, we should just let whomever destroy or use our property however they feel. NO matter that it is ours paid for by our hardwork or handed down thru generations of family ownership. We should just let whomever do whatever they want to us or if we see a crime being committed if we try to hold someone there until the police arrive then we get in trouble. We should all call the DA Zon & Sheriff Brown & DEMAND THAT SINCE THEY ARRESTED THE PROPERTY OWNER, EVERYONE INVOLVED SHOULD BE ARRESTED & LET THEM HAVE TO PAY TO CLEAR THEIR NAMES. I hope this property owner will take this all the way & let a jury settle it....if DA Zon doesnt drop charges. I am thinking about called the Liberty Counsel about this. (oh PS how stupid can you be to fire a gun in the air, that bullet has to come back down somewhere, wouldnt it be karma if it had come down on her but then the poor old property owner with probably been charged with involuntary manslaughter or some stupid charge....just saying this is how completely crazy this story is)
taken from story "The Gates Millennium Scholars Program, which is funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was established in 1999 to provide outstanding low-income African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American and Hispanic American students with an opportunity to complete an undergraduate college education in any discipline they choose.
Seems this takes care of everyone but the Low-income white kids. i just would like to know what makes the Gates think that poor white kids have some kind of advantage over any other poor kid? POOR is POOR in any race or ethinicity!!!!
thank you - i am glad there are a few of us out here that understand our rights even through sarcasm.
IF YOU CANNOT DETECT MY SARCASM ...TOO BAD - SEEING THAT YOU MISSED MY POINT COMPLETELY
UHM JUST 1 QUESTION FOR YOU - IF YOU SAW SOMEONE ONE ASSAULTING A WOMAN OR CHILD WOULD YOU CALL THE POLICE & HOPE THEY GET THERE TO SAVE SAID WOMAN OR CHILD OR WOULD YOU STEP IN & HOLD SAID SICKO CRIMINAL THERE UNTIL POLICE ARRIVE - SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO STEP IN INSTEAD OF SIT ON THE SIDELINES & HOPE IT ALL WORKS OUT BTW I CARRY MY GUN FOR TO PROTECT MYSELF IF NEEDED (HOPEFULLY NOT EVER BUT THIS WORLD HAS GONE NUTS) NOT TO GO AROUND TRYING TO PLAYING DEPUTY DOGOODY.
