WRONG................

There are plenty of people who use lever actions to shoot coyote.....I have shot coyotes with handguns... I have killed coyotes with a .410 shotgun.........its all in where you hunt and how you hunt them and if your really good,you might even be able to pat them before shooting them,LMAO and as far as it being a crime for someone stealing the firearm here,no one said it wasn't but this is how criminals get them and will always get them. and you got that right there Doshman ;-) Happy Fathers Day !

A sad event but...

a high powered rifle can be used right now to shoot coyotes..someone needs to look at the Inland Fisheries laws before making such an incompetent statement.

Ever been in the confiscated

Ever been in the confiscated gun room at the PD's? confiscated TOYS..all with their tips painted black to cover the orange tips.Ever been to the Federal Building to play cops & robbers and the choice of shoot or don't shoot? Officers are trained for BOTH.If a suspect come's running at them with a painted toy gun that looks identical to an oozie,a 38 special,a 9 mm,etc,etc... what do you think will happen if ordered to halt and they don't?? that suspect would be shot.The toy companies that make them without something to distinguish them are idiots themselves when a kid gets shot.I am surprised with all the bans going on that those too will be banned..oh yea,thats Conneticut..LOL!

Any type gun that uses CO2

Any type gun that uses CO2 can be dangerous if the person is an idiot and not use precautions with it at close range,let alone a distance. The SunJournal could have had the headline reading"Assault Gun" in it but didn't~which a team of paintball shooters, when they dress up in camo and run through a course shooting each other, make it look like a scene from enemy vs.home.Some guy that feels the need to steal something like this,wasn't doing it for his looks.Many kids,paint the tips of these "toys" to make them look real and at a distance,officers can't tell, let alone yourself,if they are real or fake.!!

ding ding ding,herez yer

ding ding ding,herez yer sign..1st give-away of owner idiotocracy~ a CHOKE collar...how did a choke collar break while just giving a dog a treat?A choke collar bruises an animals neck and should be banned from using!! Its not the dog's fault,its an owners fault for owning any dog and not knowing what you should do and how to teach it to LOVE everyone....... I have had 2 rotti's so far and my daughters could sit on our first ones head or even in its bowl of food and never do anything but lick them all over.My new one loves my grandson and he can sit on her! Ask any animal control officer which type of dog they have the most problems with biting and they will tell you...the LITTLE dogs. A dog that is treated like family,loved to pieces or never hit will never hurt anyone...wake up!

My daughters yellow lab was

My daughters yellow lab was attacked while we were ice fishing and Wendell told me that the owner of that other dog was responsible in his offering to pay the vet bills and that the law of the state of Maine says a dog is to be leashed at ALL times,even on the ice!!! He also said they don't do much if a dog attacks another dog but if it was a human,that would be a total different story or if the dogs have a "history" of attacking or killing others.This is a sad incident for sure but the law is the law when it comes to keeping your dog on a leash.
