    Revenge of the Turkeys, Happy Thanksgiving!

    Apparantly this normal American town has been victimized by a plague of Dangerous Gobblers with no impulse control Now I first though "free thanksgiving dinner" but unfortunately in Massachuesitts the turkey season is over and firing a gun in frowned upon in the city limits.

    See, when the law abiding citizens are disarmed they'll only become victims, I doubt these turkeys would pick on a lawful open carrier! If OC is legalized in MA then the Turkeys will have to move on to find easier victims!

    have a blessed thanksgiving everyone! Be safe and enjoy your holiday!

    But it's a good law according to your theories.....
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    which law? good law? Good law to me implies a law that's a "good idea" or is "beneficial" this is purely subjective depending upon the mind of the person involved.

    a constitutional law, is more objective.

    As far as discharging guns inside a city, that ordinance is a good idea in terms of issues like many people close together with a high likelyhood of hitting someone else or damaging other people's property.

    However I'm not aware of any ordinance which is legal or "constitutional" if it also is used to restrict self-defense. I believe in WA that you can use deadly force to defend yourself against a violent animal. That's what surprises me is that the article implies they can't use firearms to defend themselves if one of these turkeys is engaged in attacking them....

    BTW if you want to defend yourself in MA there is a way to do it, buy a pistol made before 1899 and you're golden! those guns are exempt from carry laws!

    LOL, Thanks for the laugh.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
