Now I feel a little silly that I complained about the squirrels and the deer moving into my neighborhood. Now it's bears. Great. I guess with global warming and rising oceans, the sharks will be here next...

Squirrels, and deer, and bears, oh my!

So, remember to pack your .44 Mag if you go out for a walk. Oh wait, this is Jersey where the powers to be pay no attention to the 2nd amendment, (or for that matter the rest of the Constitution) so no guns allowed. Well then I guess you’ll just have to pack your cell phone and call 911. Good Luck with that!

Just the fact that being allowed or NOT to have a gun in NJ was brought up, makes me glad I live in NJ! Maybe you live in the wrong state. I'd rather come in contact with someone carrying a cell phone than a gun!
