My skim-reading take...
If these folks are (and this goes for nearly every state out there) not supposed to have guns, then they probably shouldn't. The convicted felons and dangerously mentally ill, for sure.
As for what we all know this will lead to... lock and load, brothers.
The fun part...
Mostly it's minorities committing a disproportionate amount of crimes (more often against one another). This means it will appear the cops are cracking down on minorities. Which the ACL.U is just chomping at the bit to go after, especially since the recent ruling against Joe Arpaio here in Maricopa County.
So, the cops will crack down to get guns out of the hands of those who are not legally allowed to have them. This will appear as some sort of profiling because those who are the majority offenders happen to also be minorities. Then some whiny-cry bitchy group will file suit. And the taxpayers are out even more to defend this crap. Repeat in perpetuity.
Crazy crazy crazy.
Very cool. my little girl loves going anywhere Daddy is going.
She's getting better and better at panning and she finds all sorts of stuff around the neighborhood with her little metal detector. She's so rambunctious that I'm fearful of letting her roam free in the desert (and mom would kill me if she got hurt)
Good on ya, man! And Congrats to the young'n on her first (of many) nuggs!!
I'll elaborate on my answer:
Is it wrong? I'm not entirely convinced it is. The land closures are part of an agenda to get all users out of the forests and on to pavement. It goes against the tenets of freedom. Do I go out and thrash the land, whether on foot or machine? Absolutely not.
Do I walk aimlessly in the desert? Absolutely.
Have I ever find myself in a place I shouldn't be? Absolutely, but not on purpose.
Has it stopped me from wandering aimlessly in the desert? Absolutely not.
Do I go places I shouldn't be on purpose? Nope.
Do I fight daily with labor and money to keep places open? You're GD right I do!!
LOTS of work in Phoenix. More than you could handle.
I am not kidding... I need my patio extended
And that's just the beginning. I know concrete and masonry guys, electricians, etc. You would not want for work.
Just make sure you put some chains from the bottom of each ramp to some sort of attachment point on your truck. I can't tell how many times I've seen ramps shift or slip and tear up vehicles and people.
Most use a chain to the safety chain loops on a receiver. Just make sure that they're short enough to not let the ramp slide off. Make the chain adjustable at the ramp end for those uneven loading situations.
Another thing to consider: Your tailgate lines. If they're cable, might want to consider a solid bar method when loading. Most cables aren't meant to handle 500# repeatedly (if at all) - think weight of you + quad.
Just want you guys to stay safe out there.
