Comments: Boog and Fred:
I couldn't agree more. I didn't know much about guns unil I moved to Missouri. My experience was limited to Boy Scounts - (shooting 22's at French Creek). We own several guns and enjoy them safely. My greatest concern for our country is apathy. When people stop caring things go to heck pretty quick. I appreciate your comments and this web page. It shows me that people still care. God bless!

Great commentary, lets just hope that a couple of dirty bombs don't get in here. I too am a big gun advocate. We need to remain on guard and armed. Fred C.

Comments: AMERICA'S HUNTERS --- Pretty Amazing! The world's largest army... America 's hunters! A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion: There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin . Allow me to restate that number: 600,000 Over the last several months, Wisconsin's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world. More men under arms than in Iran. More than France and Germany combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan's 700,000 hunters, all of whom have now returned home safely. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It's millions more. The point? America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower. Hunting....it's not just a way to fill the freezer.. It's a matter of national security. That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed. Food for thought, when next we consider gun control. Overall it's true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain...what army of 2 million would want to face 30, 40, or 50 million armed citizens? I FEEL GOOD THAT WE HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON'T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS) For the sake of our freedom,don't ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns

Comments: Forgo to mention that I went to Holy Innocents in the 1960's. My friends were Ken Hesselpoth, Jimmy John Hooven, Warren Gross, Jamie Connors, Jimmy Kelly, Michael Swallow. We played Spooks and Bells out with the foxes (Alice, Claire and Rita) and the Hoovens. I went to La Salle H.S. and La Salle College. I remember Wick's Tavern and when the Flyers won the cups. We didn't have cable tv but Wick's could get the game on TV. We would walk in quietly and you would have 10 kids lined against the wall hoping not to be noticed in order to watch the game. I remember when Mackley had a pool and you paid 25 cents to get in (before Piccoli). The pharmacy was Herbie's or Greenies and they had had dipped Breyers and old fashioned soda fountains. I remember when kids would sell soft pretzels out of their wagons for 5 cents each. Pick up basketball games over at Hoppo. I remember PennFruit, Pantry Price, Renel's and Kiddle City. What a great place to live back in the day. I was a Safety at M and Hunting Park Ave and our crossing guard was Mrs. Fedines. The church doors were aways open 24/7 and you could go anywhere safely. Every once in a while they would turn the fire plug on and we would have a ball. There was always something to do even without cable, VCR's, gameboys and computers - all you needed were friends and a ball and you had a pick up game. I miss those simpler times.
