My comment would be its ok to bare arms to protect us. But the thugs that get them and harm people thats a different subject. Those need to be removed from their hands. Then there or those that I have dwelt with in a rural part of Texas. The bad thing is its a residential area outside of the County. My neighbor has the rights to shoot all day long if he likes. It to close in our area. I do wish they had a place that he could go and practice and not bother the rest of us his neighbors. Actually its to close for comfort especially when he has been threatening my pets and making all this ruckus just to disturb me. There are others that even work in lawyers offices that cannot do anything about their distruptive neighbors. As for as I am concerned someone needs to check him out and see if he has a loose screw. He has no regards for his neighbors. That would be the time I would think the laws need to be adjusted. The right to peace and quiet and that is one reason I live in the country. Now if I had more acerage between us that may help. But I don't and rebuilt after a major hurricane. I certainly don't have the money to move and I am not letting him chase me away from my home. You should see the thing he lives in called a house. Use some of that money to fix it up. But he rather terrorize his neighbors.

I think the only rational response is obviously to get bigger and better guns than he has.

The problem with criminals with gun isn't with guns, it's with criminals.

The problem with your neighbor's guns isn't his guns, its him and your relationship to him.

Guns are inanimate objects, amoral and unmotivated. It is *always* the person behind the gun that chooses to do wrong.

I agree. If you got problems with your neighbor, then get yourself a gun and let his dogs, cats, etc. know it too.

I don't agree that we need laws outside the city in rural neighborhoods governing what everybody does on their own property. If others in your community feel the same way as you then ask the state for a city charter and pass your own laws and pay for your own city council and whatever else your city would need.

As far as checking him out psychologically, someone should check you out for suggesting that we legislate one more thing in Texas. Really, we need less government not more. Sounds to me like you just don't want to deal with or are too scared to deal with your neighbor.

There is no law against having a loose screw, not even in Texas. I bet yours are not all countersunk and snugged down according to torque specs, either.

If your neighbor is doing this to irritate you, and you get tougher gun laws passed, he will find other ways to irritate you. Then all you have done is impose tougher gun laws on the rest of the people.

I'll bet there are already laws on the books that address this problem but as usual they are not enforced. So why pass more that only affect the rest of the public? Is he out there shooting late at night? Then enforce the noise ordinances, or Breach of Peace laws. Does he shoot in the direction of your house? How close are you? That can be Reckless Endangerment. Etc, etc.

The government doesnt want to take 'guns off the street' like they say they do. They want to take them out of the home. The only people that will abide by tougher gun laws are law abiding citizens. Eventualy the only people with the guns will be the cops and the robbers.

Since when do laws stop people from doing as they please? We do not need any new laws of any kind. There are already more laws then any society who calls themself free need.

Pizz on the law and those domestic terrorists who are supposed to enforce them.
