I remember someone who posted in another forum about how times had changed. He and his friends used to bring their rifles to school, and leave them in their lockers during the school day, so that they could shoot small game on the way home (rabbits and squirrels are good to eat).

There is a pub in town that serves Squirrel pies. Not been tempted to try myself but I understand they are very popular.

I ate some squirrel meat that was cooked on the stove in a frying pan by a rural wife. It tasted good, and was tender, but not too much fat.

I'd guess that it is like chickens--the older ones would be tougher than those who have not used their muscles over many years.

Some companies are voluntarily restricting gun sales, either refusing to sell some or all guns to people under 21, or refusing so sell some types of guns.

Some of these businesses are experiencing an opposing response, in which people who don't like what they are doing are refusing to shop there, or say they are joining the NRA when they had not been members before. One employee at Dick's quite because, though he had a legal right to buy a gun at his age (20), the store would no longer sell to anyone under 21 [I didn't fact-check that; some businesses will sell guns that are nominallynon-lethal, like air-pressure pellet guns, to younger folks].

I still don't understand the fascination with bang sticks or why anyone can purchase one over the counter with little, or no, background checking. If I want a gun, it is my prerogative to own one, HOWEVER, I must, first, show a good reason and the capacity to safely own, and store said weapon. NONE of these requirements, I see as a bad thing.
