little blue dog

a salt with a deadly ...

People from the Internet told me I could prevent the critters digging in my garden beds from doing so by sprinkling pepper into the mulch. So last night I did it.

We'll see if that works, but at the very least, I'm hoping to catch a squirrel in an frenzied sneezing fit.

how bout this ...

Require handguns sold for home use (i.e. the buyer does not have a concealed weapon permit) to incorporate position-tracking technology that would alert law enforcement if such a handgun was moved some threshold distance from a predetermined location. Assuming a court would hold that the requirement would be no more invasive of privacy rights than the paperwork to apply for a concealed carry permit, make it a federal offense to tamper with or disable the device, implement a direct protocol by which the registered location for the handgun can be changed, and limit changes to once every, whatever, 30 days or so.

Meh, just a thought.
