"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make
things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve
rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be
attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -Thomas Jefferson,
quoting Cesare Beccaria.

A Word About Squirrels
A single squirrel will eat 50 or more pounds of pecans in a year. In addition to
nuts, squirrels eat fruit, berries, fungi, insects, animal matter and corn. They
will eat the bark off of trees if food supplies are short in the winter. In the
spring they will eat flower bulbs (not daffodils, as those are poisonous to
them) and tree buds.
Depending on species and age, these little animals weigh between 1 to 2 ½
pounds. Almost any recipe for chicken can be adapted for squirrel, but here are
a few Bubba favorites.
