what is it with people and alligators? why are there any left? i hate to sound cold but what are they good for? name one thing. they are good for...killing. that is all they do. they're good for boots also. oh wait, they are good for eliminating stupid people who boat unfamiliar waters with no life vest and a goofy little dog in his lap. i understand gun laws and safety and one would have done him no good in that more than like it was over so quick, but what if he'd came right back. ok what do we do use the gun if it comes back and all else fails? or hope part of us floats so they can find it easy and take in for id? if i am endangered by one and he approaches me and a paddle or frog gig doesn't run him off then i show him man has developed some in time, we make guns now, howabout you? when police arrest me and take my gun instead of pick up pieces and hope one doesn't snatch them they can explain it all to me.
