    Mad Cowboy by Howard Lyman is a great book. A cattle rancher that turned vegan. He was sued along with Oprah Winfrey by the Cattleman’s assoc for food disparagement.. There are laws now and people cannot go video the lives of animals in livestock areas.

    Membership in Gun Groups Is Spiking After the Florida Shooting

    http://time.com/5176471/national-rifle-association-membership-florida-shooting/

    “Gun owners themselves weren’t being demonized [after Las Vegas]” Turner explained. “But after the Florida shooting, there was a definite push to demonize honest gun owners and to demonize the NRA. And I think that’s what’s provoked their response.”

    Gun rights activists said the membership increase is also fueled by a feeling that public rebukes such as corporations ending partnerships with the NRA are simply publicity stunts. “There is no one. NO ONE. Who joins the NRA for a discount on a rental car,” Cleta Mitchell, an NRA member and former Oklahoma state lawmaker who sat on the NRA’s board from 2002 to 2013, said in an email. She was referring to Hertz ending its discount program for NRA members.

    I suppose that does happen, but I don't see ranch animals living a life of suffering. Especially the cows I see, don't look like they have a care in the world. They just eat and get fat. They seem to have it a lot better then dear, which are getting shot at all the time. The second point is why I'm personally against hunting. I don't think hunting is a humane way of killing an animal.

    That’s not how it is for most cattle. Factory farming is basically torture all around. If you are seeing dairy cows they are forced to lactate and their babies are taken away almost immediately. Most of them will die.

    If people treated their pets the way farmers treat goats, chickens, pigs, etc., they would be arrested. I don’t understand the difference.

    As always it is so watered down that it will accomplish nothing, except waste a lot of money.

    The US spends less than one penny on gun violence research for every person shot dead in America — and that's intentional

    It's mostly illegal, in the United States anyway, with some exceptions, depending on the state I believe.

    I love deer, elk, and antelope meat. My kids prefer it over beef, and so do I. When it's one of my daughter's birthdays or some other special occasion and we ask the kids what they want for dinner, they always say "deer steaks!"

    You can buy wild game, from Cabelas.

    That is a beautiful area.I love eating at Sharky's on the pier! I've been to the Myakka park. I've been visiting Fla since I was a child. I'm a bit concerned about the Boas. My favorite areas are on the gulf side, from Siesta Key, down to Naples (another beautiful pier) . We were in Corskrew one year, and something big and tannish, lept out of the growth, about 30' from the walkway, and grabbed a large bird from its perch. There were feathers flying, a couple of squawks, and then all we heard was bones cracking, a couple snarling noises, and then other sounds of feasting. It was so fast that we didn't see it clearly. We were a bit stunned at first, to see that, and figured while it was busy, we should mosey on down the walkway. We were told by one of the park folks that it was probably a Florida Panther.

    Teacher's aides?!

    Subs? ... Coaches?! Assistant coaches?

    My imagination is spinning just thinking about my HS driver&#8217;s ed teacher aka assistant tennis coach aka Coach Feet-Desk with a firearm. If it&#8217;s concealed, he&#8217;ll have to wear something other than those maroon and white nylon track shorts.

    :laughing:

    I don't think that those things directly cause someone to do those things.

    However, I do think that repeated exposure, day after day, for hours on end, can have an impact, on mood, and desensitization. If a kid is predisposed to be drawn to this type of media, 24/7, then, it seems it would amp up, something already there. Kind of like any other person, like a person drawn to gambling, shouldn't go to a casino. Kids who show certain traits, probably should be geared toward the NFL or NBA video games, or maybe Subnautica (it even has a VR option), maybe steer away from Horrorcore music too. It can't hurt.

    10 Most Violent Video Games of 2017 and Age Appropriate Options

    The impact of violent media on kids is still being studied -- especially as game violence jumps from the screen to virtual reality. But research shows that heavy exposure to violent media is associated with aggressive behavior, desensitization, and violent thoughts.

    Many parents whose kids ask for these games (or set up a line of credit on game sites such as Steam) may know that the games are violent, but not the specific kinds of violence they contain. Here's where you can find out. Below, we've gathered 10 of the most extreme titles to come out this year. A lot of them are well-designed gameplay experiences, but they're definitely not for kids. The thing is, instead of saying no all the time, we think you'll be more successful if you say, "Wait," and offer kids alternatives in the same genre that are a little less violent and more age-appropriate. Note that we offer two alternatives for each game, one for younger players and one for older players.
