Also, in many places, shooting within a certain distance of a dwelling.

I know the difference between an opinion and a fact quite clearly. That doesn't mean some opinions aren't ones I consider to be ones from the land of the looney. DECENT people know there's a difference between a child and a dog. If you need that explained to you, feel free to adjust your Prozac medication.

I'll adjust my medication (I choose weed over pharma thank you very much) just as long as you lay off the testosterone & red meat.

You still haven't received that therapy for your whacked-up mentality, haven you?

Gee, I can just see a mountain lion stopping, puzzled, at a fence and then slowly turning around and going away.

NOT. lol High-jumping, sharp claws, and all that.....

Not true...these kind of people believe that human life is sacred and to be respected and preserved if possible.

And when it comes down to "human or animal", human wins. You cannot apply your reasoning to this situation...you have the audacity to say that someone who values human life over animal life will "quickly and easily descend into dehumanizing other people"?? No, it's the ones who value animal life over human life on these boards who do that.

Case in point:

"As long as I reserve the right to shoot your free range brats when they trespass into MY yard, we have a deal. And keep them from shrieking at 10:00 at night too, please and thanks."

Just such a reason is sometimes why we have so many land slides etc and such is because we are again building where we should not be building or living .

Good ! As long as the sheep think I'm whacked that only proves to me I'm going in the right direction.

The second you and people like Shyguy start approving of the way I choose to live my life that's when I know to start making adjustments.

And you can stick your personal attacks where the sun doesn't shine __l_

It's not a "personal attack"....it's an observation of reality.

But really, you just hurt my fee-fees.
