Got my first rifle when I was six. First thing you did in woodshop in 7th grade was learn to
make a pickup gun rack. Maybe you only know about that part of Calif like where I live now. Guns are mostly a gangbanger/drugdealer nuisance around here. But Calif is a big place. We are fairly open to immigrants from third world countries, even Texas. There are
other significant advances in civil behavior here too. For instance, we have legal bag limits
on the number of software yuppies and digital engineers one can shoot in a day. It's an
important amenity to make certain the next generation will still have something to hunt.
But you Texans probably call that Environmentalism.
