Dumb Law's ????
« on: July 03, 2011, 02:14:48 PM »
Was just watching some fishing shows on the tube and a couple guys were fishing in various places in Canada. It got me to thinking why does Alberta have the dumb law that we can only fish with one rod in open water ? where does this dumb law come from and why ? I mean they allow 2 rods on ice why not when trolling open water.. The other day when I was out on Cold Lake after the bite slowed it sure would of been nice to have a couple rods in running a couple different depth to try and find them. I mean really as far as I am concerned its just another one of those dumb laws put in place to entrap people and make more money.

We all know there are a few of them in this province can't think of more now but I will..

I'm more concerned with Federal laws.

Why can't I have a .32 or .25 calibre handgun? What's that all about? I don't get it.

Agreed.  When I bowhunt in the states, they all look at me like i get 2 heads when I say that I dont have a pistol for defense (cougars, bears etc).  Sure would be nice to have when hunting in grizzly country.

Probably not but wouldnt want to risk.  Was bowhunting turkeys in Washington in April and the guy I was hunting with was very concerned that i didnt have a pistol as they often had cougars come in to the calls.  Didnt bother me as cougars die from steel poisoning just as well as lead poisoning.  After a couple hours, i realized that i was the only person not packing in the town i was staying in.  Concealed weapons permits are very easy to get in wash.  Didnt see any crime going on while i was there.  LOL

The current hate crime laws are dumb, because they limit freedom of speech.

Look at that comic who was sued by the 2 lesbians and was ordered to go to a Human Rights Tribunal for cracking jokes!
