    Being afraid of that person is ridiculous in my opinion

    I’m not afraid of black bears or gun owners while in the woods and have no issues with either being there whether I have a gun at the time or not. We should be free to choose which ever way we want
    Think we are getting to the true root of the argument. My thinking has nothing to do with gun grabbing and I do believe the vast majority of gun owners behave in a safe and responsible manor. I would love to live in a prefect utopian world where everyone could " be free to choose which ever way we want" however we live in a society and rules and regs are written because of those that behaved irresponsible.
    Given the number of shot up signs in the woods I'm okay with the way the regs are written. If engaged in a legal activity yes you can have a gun otherwise it must be safely stowed away.

    Just to clarify. I wasnít implying you are a gun grabber. Just that the thought process of ďIím afraid of it, so nobody should be able to do itĒ, is in my books is the anti method of thinking

    Some bears you can predict and others you canít. Iíve seen the unexpected charging bear in bear season before and warning shots would not sway its intent. Iíve watched the written words on bear wise in Algonquin park change over the years from being dismissive of the issue to the current approach of far more caution about unpredictability and danger. In parks you cannot carry a firearm defence tool but a canoe paddle is a good alternative. But ultimately itís true any tool is less useful when asleep in the dark. Iíd tell any camper / explorer to go watch the movies Backcountry and The Edge but also take part in some baited bear hunting to see that your best defence might be to carry an alternative to yourself like a big bag of sugary sweets as those bandits I find have a real liking for the sweets rather than you. But as with everything in life there are always the exceptionÖ.and there might be some bear who is trying out the carnivore diet insteadÖ..lol

    Gun owners can lobby for more restrictive rules in response to societies concerns and we keep our privileges albeit under tigher more expensive to follow rules, or we can wait and watch our privileges taken away.

    That's the exact attitude that's got us into the situation we've found ourselves now. We've been too much "Mr. Nice Guy" that's got us nowhere. That needs to stop....period.
    Society needs to stop bending to the will of the delusional.

    There is a reason society has concerns as some of our own kind are are worst enemies. Simcoe county forest banned target shooting why? I for one have seen guys sight in their slug guns shooting down the trails with nothing more for a back stop than a sheet of cardboard. Can't blame them for shutting it down.

    Simcoe county forest! Thereís sub-divisions near by. Are we even talking about the original discussion? This topic has gone sideways.

    Not all Simcoe county forest's have subdivisions nearby. Some are near nothing. But I do agree that this seems to have gone off from the original topic

    Majority of black bear attacks are healthy, adult predatory boars. They are animals.. and not all created equal. I've seen many. I've encountered one that absolutely looked at me like I was meat. All it takes is one.

    Finsfurfeathers will probably never encounter one, and most people never will. But each and every one of them would change their stance pretty quick if they did.

    Ignorance is bliss.

    Boy what a difference - down here I carry a gun anywhere and anytime - when going overnight fishing always feel safer when I have a handgun with me - it always amazes me how Canadians are so restricted and controlled by their government - a good thing is happening down here with the Supreme Court - it is gradually getting government our of our lives with it's recent rulings - always remember - an armed citizen is a free citizen -

    I've posted this before but maybe it is worth repeating it again - years ago a holocaust survivor gave a talk at a local college - after his presentation he took questions from the audience - someone asked him why the Jews didn't put up resistance when they were being rounded up and sent to the concentration camps - his answer - with what - they took all our guns
