Even though poisonous snakes can be deadly and are surely a nuisance, in some states, they are protected species. So my advice is to keep your actions dealing with them as a private and not public matter. I've seen people get citations after posting pictures of snakes they've killed in their yards on social media. The crunchy types will turn you in. Just saying.

My new policy is to give them gluten-free cookies and coloring books and pat them on the head. I wouldn't dream of hacking their heads off with hoes and then preserving their skins for hatbands. No, no. Won't happen.


It's sad to see lunacy spread to nice areas like Marion County. I wonder when the nuts will be coming for our plastic bags. Which end up in landfills where no aquatic animal could possibly be hurt by them.

They're already coming for the guns. If anyone has taken anti-depressants or other similar drugs, they're SOL.

Bob Gualtieri, the sheriff mentioned in that story is the same guy who just refused to arrest a white man who killed a black assailant in a parking lot. The white man, who has some kind of handicap, was arguing peacefully with a woman, and her boyfriend pushed him to the pavement without warning. The white man pulled a gun, the black man appeared to back off, and the white man shot anyway.


The sheriff claims he could not make an arrest, and he blamed the stand your ground doctrine. In reality, this was not a stand your ground case because the shooter had no ability to retreat. It was just botched self-defense. An arrest would have been perfectly okay, and the shooter will probably be charged eventually. Looks like second-degree murder so far.



It has been suggested that Gualtieri's decision was motivated by a desire to get a good law repealed, but it's hard to tell. He has supported PAC's that seem conservative.



Still, even the NRA supports laws to get guns away from nuts. The problem comes when leftist extremists get to define "nut." They know nearly nothing about guns, so they get hysterical when someone has more than one gun or keeps more than a thousand rounds of ammunition on hand. Anyone who has more than one gun or a few boxes of ammunition has an "arsenal" or a "cache"! Clearly a nut!



I get so tired of seeing ignorant people ask, "Why does anyone need more than one gun?" It's like asking why you would own a rake AND a shovel. Tabula rasa.


I just read that timber rattlesnakes are protected in Texas. I'll bet that law gets a lot of respect!

I disagree. After seeing the video, I would have pulled the trigger too
