Carrying a gun in the woods is often prudent (though from a self-defense perspective, certainly far less necessary than most city-dwellers would think). I'm struggling to come up with a scenario where a handgun would be the optimal weapon to have, however.
Lighter, easier to access quickly.

Whats the problem with Loong?  Makes too much money?

Runs an oppressive and undemocratic police state. Are Libertarians now big fans of executing non-violent drug dealers and outlawing gum?
No need to load my questions for me.  I knew nothing of the guy and the wiki on him doesn't make him out to be all that evil.

(and is Venezuela THAT much more of a Libertarian paradise than Singapore?  Remember, we are eliminating the worst here....different levels of suck ya know?)

Because clearly this will lead to a blood bath.  Just like every other time gun laws were relaxed somewhere.

Collusion is an agreement, usually secretive, which occurs between two or more persons to deceive, mislead, or defraud others of their legal rights, or to obtain an objective forbidden by law typically involving fraud or gaining an unfair advantage.
Which part of this did Netflix and WalMart do exactly?  They defrauded no one of their legal rights.  They didn't obtain an objective forbidden by law or gain an unfair advantage.  Nothing they did hurt Blockbuster or anybody else trying to deliver DVDs by mail.

Unless I'm missunderstanding the allegations, which is certainly possible.

How do you feel about Wal Mart normally?

Supporters said the bill would serve Arizonans who want to have guns in vehicles for self-defense and recreational purposes.

Role Models-very funny.  Better than I was expecting.

Tropical Thunder-pretty much exactly what I expected.  Funny, but not as funny as many were making it out to be last year.

Just watched "Son in Law", starring Pauly Shore. Hilarious movie...I remember back in '93, my oldest sister went crazy over this movie and we watched it alot back in the 90s.
My youngest daughter has some pajamas with wide vertical stripes.  I chant "Steven Tyler PJs, Steven Tyler PJs, Steven Tyler PJs" every time she wears them.

It is but it isn't.  According to wiki it is the second most visited National Park.  link

This is what it says on it's own page

The Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) is a U.S. National Recreation Area administered by the National Park Service

I'm not sure if it falls under this new rule or not...I'd assume it does.

Um, I'm pretty sure that two companies conspiring to control an entire market is illegal. I'm no "lawyer" of course, but it sounds pretty sketch.
You know two companies can get together for the betterment of both and it is still not a monopoly right?  That isn't "conspiring to control an entire market".  Nothing and I mean NOTHING is stopping anybody else from renting you DVDs through the mail.  Blockbuster ships DVDs to millions of customers for example.

I have no idea what you're talking about.  ....ahh, the "crime" thing I guess.  Yeah, being attacked by a bear isn't a CRIME, my bad.  I don't know how much crime takes place in National Parks, did somebody actually bring that up somewhere or were you trying to be clever in your first post?

Statement of Purpose

"To protect innocent Americans from violent crime in national parks and refuges."
Alrighty then, color me embarassed.  I'd be much more worried about wildlife in the deep woods than I would be about a guy trying to snatch my wallet.

I suppose a lot of National Parks are not what I think of when I think of National Parks.  When I hear National Parks I think Yellowstone and Joshua Tree, but I guess they include places where you are a little more likely to have an asshat try and grab your wallet like the National Mall or Golden Gate Park.

What exactly are the violent crimes that might take place in a national park?
Being attacked by a bear?
Yes exactly (or mountain lion, or wolf, or raccoon or any number of beasts that could potentially harm a human).  You don't have to be armed when walking through the deep wood, but it's certainly smart in many places.

Just had a weird thought...is Omaha the only city with it's own electoral vote?

He used to be a fairly well liked mayor.  He seems to be a victim of a swing city wide towards the Dems.  Not a good sign for the GOP especially after losing our electoral vote as well.
