Sounds like there are some kids out there without enough to do.

or... again... it was inspired by the thought of Walmart having interest in putting a store in Caledonia... as all evils generally originate from Walmart. ; ) I am glad that the State is taking up the idea of allowing people to protect themselves in their homes with less consequences from doing so... because if someone breaks in, the home owner should be afforded the abilty to use whatever force is necessary to ensure their safety rather than wait to see what intentions an intruder has.

wow I Have a feeling that this is the same bunch of kids that were vandalizing the same neighborhood during the summer. I think they live over by Silent Sunday Ct. also.
