    I live way down here in Baldwin County Alabama the most southern county here and I constantly find people piling up hardwood on the side of the road from cut down trees that they put out there to get hauled off. I always stop and load my truck when I see it and take it home and chop it up and store it up for future use. Guess folks in this area don’t see the value in it being that our winters aren’t that cold but I see store of value written all over it. Just my opinion.

    This Navy shipyard madman’s attack in a “gun free zone” with a shotgun turned much more deadly when he acquired better weapons from guards. This aspect raises an issue I’ve been harping on since we started putting expensive armed guards in schools after the Sandy Hook tragedy.

    There is little chance a solitary uniformed armed guard can protect himself against a shooter who surprises him — shotgun, revolver, derringer, or perhaps even a knife. A madman can simply walk up to such a guard with a question, and then get the drop on him.

    But once the guard is neutralized, the guard’s WEAPON becomes the attacker’s weapon — usually a 9mm with a 15-19 round magazine — and one or two loaded mags to boot. Bad idea.

    Instead of posting such easily-identified, expensive guards in schools, allow qualified/approved teachers and school staff to discretely arm themselves with handguns, without publicizing who is packing. Then such an attacker knows not who is packing, and who isn’t. This uncertainty likely precludes such a “gun free” zone attack.

    Think this idea is outlandish? Not in Utah. Teachers there have been able to pack heat for over a dozen years. No shootings, no accidents, no problems.

  • Paul, I was shocked when I found out folks in Seattle pay $280+ for a half cord of wood in February and March… They call it a Condo Cord, the condos in the city have a space on the back porch that holds exactly half a cord, and towards the end of winter, people will pay that much or more plus gas money for people to deliver wood to them… and that’s when things are still relatively “good”! At the same time, on craigs list out here in WA there are people constantly giving wood away, strange how that works. I have been told I am “old school” for using a splitting maul and not a gas powered log splitter! Keep stackin’ brother!

  • Richard, I am diggin’ the common sense, well said
