How Lives Could Have Been Saved

If the attack at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood actually happened as we are being told, think of the number of lives that could have been saved if lawful citizens were allowed to carry for protection. As soon as this mind altered man opened fire, a legally armed man would have gunned him down.

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Someone asked me once, knowing that I support a person’s right to protection, what I was afraid of. My answer was simple. I’m not afraid of anything. But I would like the choice, that if I was in an airport and some deranged person pulled a gun from his baggage and began shooting, I could protect myself, my family, others around me and, if necessary, kill the son-of-a-bitch who’s killing people.

Snowy Owls Don’t Give a Hoot at Portland, Maine Airport

Sorry for the headline. I just couldn’t help myself.

Remember this piece of satire (sort of) I did a few days ago about how snowy owls were migrating into the Northeast region of the U.S., supposedly in search of food? Information being spread throughout news agencies says that the owls are attracted to airports because of the wide open spaces that are conducive to the raptors normal prey habitat.

Now we have a report that these snowy owls have become a bit of a problem at the Portland International Jetport, having collided with at least 5 planes. Hazing efforts don’t seem to be working so well and officials have resorted to shooting two of the owls.

The comments below the linked-to article provide interesting entertainment.
