Duck hunters ticket

I live near Eagle Point in Biloxi. When did duck hunting within city limits become legal? Or unload firearms within city limits (hunting rifles for duck hunting)? I called and will continue to call Biloxi police until they do something about it. Police say there’s nothing they can do? Here’s an idea: coerce shooters and maybe they’ll go somewhere where shooting and hunting is legal. Have a little respect for the people who live in the area. I’m sure you wouldn’t want me to shoot my shotgun in your yard at 7:00 a.m.

Thank you, patroller

Thanks, Mississippi Highway Patrol, for working on Seaman Road in Jackson County. The speed has been uncontrollable there for a long time. Please don’t let go. Save lives.

riots at the Capitol

As a conservative Republican, I am disgusted by the events of a year ago. These offenders must be held accountable. What I don’t understand is why rioters in (usually liberal) cities aren’t held accountable with the same fury and media coverage as the Capitol gangs. Assaulting the police and destroying property is wrong and breaking the law no matter who or where you are.

Chick-fil-A & COVID

Some people are just mean and hateful. The politicization of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused people to lose their perspective. Criticizing Chick-fil-A for shutting down her dining room is unfair. They are just trying to protect their staff and their customers! You can’t call the Chick-fil-A reader “slow”, they have the most efficient system of any fast food restaurant. Are the queues long at peak times? Yes indeed, but they sink very quickly. Be nice.
