BREAKING :
ALEXANDRA ANDERSON, A 26-YEAR-OLD MOTHER OF TWO YOUNG CHILDREN, NEVER CONSIDERED GETTING A CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT UNTIL LAST SPRING, WHEN UNREST AND VIOLENCE DOMINATED NEWS HEADLINES AND MADE HER FEEL UNEASY. HER FEARS BEGAN WHEN OGDEN, UTAH POLICE OFFICER NATE LYDAY WAS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY. TWO DAYS LATER, WHAT BEGAN AS PEACEFUL PROTESTS IN DOWNTOWN SALT LAKE CITY CALLING FOR JUSTICE IN THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD IN MINNESOTA, TURNED VIOLENT. A SALT LAKE CITY POLICE CAR WAS OVERTURNED AND SET ON FIRE. THAT WAS HER TIPPING POINT. ANDERSON DECIDED TO ENROLL IN A CONCEALED CARRY COURSE.TO SAY THAT THE BIDEN-HARRIS GUN-CONTROL LIST IS “COMPREHENSIVE” WOULD BE A DRAMATIC UNDERSTATEMENT. RATHER, IT REPRESENTS A VERITABLE INVENTORY OF EVERY MAJOR GUN-CONTROL MEASURE THAT HAS BEEN PROPOSED DURING THE LAST 30 YEARS. GIVEN THAT BOTH JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS ARE ON THE RECORD SUPPORTING THE CONFISCATION OF AR-15-TYPE RIFLES—WHEN ASKED DURING A 2019 TELEVISION INTERVIEW WHETHER HE HOPED TO CONFISCATE AR-15S, BIDEN SAID “BINGO”.IN A RECORD YEAR OF GUN SALES, MANY HAVE BEEN BOUGHT BY FIRST-TIME GUN OWNERS, ACCORDING TO STORE OWNERS AND BACKGROUND CHECK STATISTICS. THE FBI HAS REPORTED MORE BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN BUYERS THIS YEAR THAN DURING ANY YEAR SINCE TRACKING BEGAN IN 1998. TEXAS GUN STORE OWNERS AND FIREARMS EXPERTS BELIEVE MOST OF THESE NEW CUSTOMERS HAVE LITTLE TRAINING ON HOW TO HANDLE, STORE AND USE THE WEAPONS. EAGLE GUN RANGE OWNER DAVID PRINCE SAID HIS SALES HAVE MORE THAN DOUBLED THIS YEAR COMPARED TO LAST. AND MANY OF HIS CUSTOMERS HAVE TOLD HIM THEY ARE NEW, FIRST-TIME GUN OWNERS. A SHORTAGE OF AMMUNITION COULD BE A PROBLEM FOR SOME HUNTERS AS DEER SEASON GETS UNDERWAY IN VERMONT SO SOME HUNTERS HAVE TURNED TO A NEW OPTION; BOW HUNTING. "WE ACTUALLY RAN OUT [OF ARROWS] FOR A LITTLE WHILE. WE FINALLY MANAGED TO GET THEM BACK IN, BUT AGAIN, IT TOOK ALMOST A MONTH TO GET AN ORDER IN THAT SHOULD HAVE COME IN WITHIN FIVE DAYS,” SAID ARCHERY DEPT. MANAGER JON SANBORN.IF YOU’RE NEW TO HUNTING, OR HAVE BEEN BUT WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IT, THERE’S AN OPPORTUNITY THIS WEEKEND IN SOUTH DAKOTA. ON SUNDAY, THE PHEASANTS FOREVER 2020 APPRENTICE HUNT WILL START AT 8 A.M., AND GO UNTIL LATE AFTERNOON. THE EVENT, WHICH IS FREE OF CHARGE, IS OPEN TO ANYONE OVER THE AGE OF 18.

TX – WILDLIFE – ‘Feral swine bomb’ causing US wild hog populations to explode

It’s hog wild! The US population of wild pigs is soaring due to what experts are calling “a feral swine bomb,” according to a report. There are about 9 million feral hogs in the nation currently, and the beasts, which cause an estimated $2.5 billion worth of damage each year, are multiplying quickly, The Atlantic recently reported. “I’ve heard it referred to as a feral swine bomb,” Dale Nolte, manager of the National Feral Swine Damage Management Program at the US Department of Agriculture told the magazine.

“They multiply so rapidly. To go from a thousand to two thousand, it’s not a big deal. But if you’ve got a million, it doesn’t take long to get to 4 [million], then 8 million.”

Over the last three decades, the wild hog population expanded from about 17 states to at least 39 — and they’re set to occupy 386,000 square miles across the country by the end of 2020, according to Ryan Brook, a University of Saskatchewan biologist who researches the animals. “Pig populations are completely out of control,” Brook said.

The havoc-wreaking oinkers came into the national spotlight last year thanks to a viral tweet about gun control that raised the question of how someone could kill “30-50 feral hogs” without an assault weapon.  [full article]
