fox family at shooting range

LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — A family of foxes has taken up residence in a portion of the Clark County Shooting Complex near Decatur and Grand Teton. Their presence has forced a part of the range to close down.The mother fox and her three kits were spotted at the rifle and pistol range.

"Wow poor planning on the fox's part," said Clark County Shooting Complex's Program Administrator Steve Carmichael. "The more I get thinking about it, we're not giving them near enough credit because they're probably safer in here than anywhere they could be," Carmichael added.

German gun culture

I never knew gun ownership was that high there. I always had Norway and Canada as being higher.

Gov Deal's veto message

Agree or disagree, at least it is a cogent and rational explanation. At least more rational than the standard "shoot outs in the classroom" claims.

guns in churches, mosques, synagogues, Druid oak groves etc

If as liberals, we support the separation of Church and State when people like Pat Roberson opens his mouth. Doesn't it stand to that we should also oppose the State telling churches that they can't allow guns? It seems to me that Jefferson's wall is brick on both sides. While I see a reasonable argument for a compelling State interest in banning them from bars, or any other business where recreational drugs are consumed on the premises, I don't see it when it comes to churches.

UW study upends understanding of prehistoric man


There is a long-held belief that agriculture changed everything for human beings. Agriculture meant a stable food supply, surpluses, an ability to thrive despite natural environmental changes.

But a new study, published in December in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States, challenges the idea that the start of agriculture 10,000 to 12,000 years ago is responsible for boosting the human population growth rate. Radiocarbon dating analysis shows that prehistoric hunter-gatherer human populations in what is now Wyoming and Colorado grew at the same rate as farming societies in Europe.

“It’s pretty mind blowing,” said Erick Robinson, a University of Wyoming post-doctoral researcher on the project.

Bob Kelly, professor of anthropology at the University of Wyoming, was looking at the relationship between prehistoric population sizes and climate change, using radiocarbon dating on charcoal found in prehistoric hearth sites. Scientists can use this data to estimate population growth rates for a given period of time. Previously, scientists studied population data over short time spans, like 500 years. Looking at population data is not new. What is new is the UW research team looked at growth rate across a large span of time instead of just 500 years.

how to talk productively on guns

Interesting read. Basically, it boils down to culture war.
