    Until the machine gun ban is repealed, there will not be a new American designed full auto firearm in the hands of the military. Period.

    We are stuck with the M16 and variants until that ban is gone. There is no economical reason for any company to sink any money into developing anything better here as the market for such an arm is insanely limited.

    The MG ban was the Government cutting open it’s own throat. Now, our enemies are developing new and much more advanced small arms technology while we remain static. This will come back to bite us hard one day if the ban isn’t removed.

    Thanks. I’ve been fighting the anti pet freaks for a while now. We’ve turned the tide thanks to USARK and other exotic pet groups. The lies and distortion told by the media and the anti pet idiots have caused a massive amount of harm not only to the safe and proper keeping and care of these animals but to people as well.

    The Constrictor rule of the Lacey Act has shut down several lines of research into finding cures for diseases related to enlarged hearts, muscle diseases, cancer and other ailments. They’re about to add an additional five species of snakes which will further harm medical research.

    Given that less than one person dies every two years from pet reptiles, not just snakes, but all reptiles... compared to dogs in the neighborhood of 30+ per year or cats at 20+ per year, well I don’t think they have any grounds to stand on.

    An escaped pet was the “story” being pushed by PETA and HSUS. However, given that the cobra is a BEL (blue eyed leusy) and is quite rare.. and hence quite valuable. It’s probably one that was bought and released specifically to generate fear and panic in the effort to pass anti pet legislation in the state.

    NJ had a somewhat similar incident this year with the so called 30 foot “boa” supposedly swimming in a lake. No evidence of any large snake at all was found and the guy making the claim was a PETAfile freak.

    Another incident was the released croc here in WV. Interesting how the story died down quickly when the croc was identified as one sold to a known HSUS supporter from a neighboring state. It was deliberately released to generate panic.

    Then in NC the Gaboon viper shed found in a mail shed in an apartment complex. Turns out, it was identified as a shed sold on line by a keeper in another state. Wanna guess what groups the person that bought it supported?

    Are there escapes? Sure. It’s rare, but not unheard of. But snakes like the cobra aren’t going to go looking for people to bite. They’ll avoid contact with people if at all possible. I’d be more concerned with outdoor cats and roaming dogs.

    You do realize that you are more likely to die from rat borne diseases than a snake bite right? Just sayin’.

    As for Timber rattlers, I’ve had people tell me they’re copperheads. I’ve had people tell me that black rat snakes, corn snakes, milk snakes, and a plethora of other species of harmless snake are copperheads. Heck, my mother thinks one of our ball pythons is a copperhead.

    99% of the people in the US have no clue about snake species in the US. To many of them, any snake in the water is a water moccasin. Any snake on land is a copperhead.

    I’ve sat next to a timber rattler while hunting in the early fall. It approached me, curled up next to my leg and warmed up for about 15 minutes before moving on. I wasn’t a threat to it, it wasn’t a threat to me.

    Yes, snakes are curious. Very, very, very rarely are they ever aggressive. They will defend themselves but the DO NOT want to bite you unless you give them no choice. They will only bite if you give them reason to fear for their lives. I’m sorry but all the stories of water moccasins and copperheads chasing people is pure bunk. Would you go chasing a full grown kodiak bear and expect it to run away? No, and a snake isn’t going to do that to us because to them, we are the horrible scary monsters... and they have more to fear from us than we do from them. And they’re right about that.

    Learn about snakes, not through BS Discovery channel crap or the news media, learn from the people that actually know these animals and interact with them every single day. Once you do that, you’ll understand, there is really little to nothing to fear from these animals if you respect them and know what they are and why they do what they do. Living in blind ignorance does nothing but harm the snakes and yourself.

    More than likely those were water snakes which are insanely curious. If the body is submerged, it’s a water snake, if the body is floating on TOP of the water, it’s a cotton mouth or water moccasin.

    Cottonmouths are oviviparous. If you’re seeing a snake laying eggs, it’s not a cottonmouth.

    Cottonmouth snakes are known for a very special defensive measure. They will coil up, take a defensive posture and open their mouths wide in a threat display to ward off threats. They don’t chase...

    Poisonous or venomous? There are both and they are very different. Poisonous is when you bite it and you get sick. Venomous is when it bites you and you get sick.

    dogs and cats for the most part are more resistant to venom in general than we are. But unless you have a weakened immune system or are frail or in bad health, for the most part, it’s rare for a north American venomous snake to be lethal. Dogs and cats will get sick but will usually survive most bites. In the US, you have quite a few species of rattle snake, you have water mocassins, copperheads and coral snakes for the potentially dangerous species of venomous snake. There are many others out there though. Garter snakes and ring neck snakes are both venomous AND poisonous. But their venom is designed specifically for invertebrates and is extremely weak. Hognose snakes are venomous but they rarely bite and at most, unless you are allergic, you’ll get mild swelling at the bite for a couple of hours and that’s it.

    If you have venomous snakes around your house, let nature do the work. King snakes are a prolific hunter of other snakes. They LOVE venomous snakes for lunch. King snakes are immune to venom and are harmless to people and pets. Remember, when you’re out in the wild with your animals, you’re in the home of these snakes. You’re the invader. Would you want some monster coming to where you live and killing you because it had a misplaced fear of you?

    I’ve free handled a lot of wild snakes including a hypo coral snake. They’re not out to get you, they just want to be left alone. If you don’t screw with them, they’re not going to mess with you.

    You state... "Uh, some of these copperheads we have around here will attempt to drive a human off of what they apparently consider their territory, or away from what they consider “their” food. (Say, those 6-8” bluegills on my stringer, that the snake can’t possibly swallow, but he’s determined to try, anyway.)"

    False. Copperheads are not territorial. You'd be surprised what a snake can swallow. But, given that, you're probably seeing a banded water snake which in some instances can look vaguely like a copperhead if you squint or don't know snakes at all. What you're seeing is the snake seeing a meal, going in to investigate, a person seeing the snake, getting close to "rescue" the catch and the snake preparing to defend itself because there is this hulking moron standing over it.

    I've seen people call all sorts of snake behavior aggressive when it isn't. People will also call everything in the world a copperhead or a water moccasin. Most of the time, it's not.

    Just as an example, this is a Crotalus Horridus or Eastern Timber Rattler. I spent 30 minutes taking photos of it in the wild. No need to kill it, I went my way, it went it's way after it let me take dozens of shots.

    The point is, people kill snakes out of fear and because of the horror stories that ignorant people tell about these animals. There really isn't a need to kill them and there is ample reason not to.

    Ok... first of all, they’re venomous, not poisonous. Second, don’t kill them, avoid them. Nearly all venomous (or “hot” as we like to call venomous snakes in the herper world) bites in the wild occur because the victim was messing with the snake. Just walk around it or back away from it and go on about your business.

    Unlike what the myths will tell you, copperheads, water moccasins, rattlers, corals will not chase you down. To them, you are Godzilla and our size scares them because to them, we’re a dangerous predator. They want to get away from us.

    If you do encounter a snake at very close range, just remain calm. I usually carry a walking stick that I can use to gently move the snake away from me without incurring a bite.

    The reason I suggest you don’t kill these snakes is that they are protecting us from the real dangers that exist. They keep rodent populations down which helps to stop the spread of diseases like Lyme and rat bite fever as well as a plethora of others. By killing these snakes, these diseases are more able to be spread through the fleas and ticks even the rodents themselves.

    If you’re going to shoot a snake, do it with a camera. There is no need to kill any snake unless you’re in a locked closet with it and can’t get out and you’re stepping on it. Seriously, they’re not out to get you. they just want to be left alone.

    A lot of that has to do with the availability of them. The Hughes Amendment created a situation where MG’s are not commonly held because of the ban. Get rid of that ban and you’ll see massive numbers of MG’s being owned legally. As it is now, there’s several times the number of contraband MG’s in the US vs. legally owned and registered ones. The Hughes Amendment has created a very interesting situation that will result in the destruction of the NFA before long.

    “I guess the biggest problem is irresponsible pet owners.

    I have seen several programs on TV (Nat Geo, Animal Planet) that say this has become a major problem in South Florida where a number of pet owners have released giant African Rock Pythons and Burmese Pythons into the wild (often the Everglades) because the snakes got too large for them to care for.”

    Again, this is media BS. The situation in Florida is a result of Hurricane Andrew that destroyed a breeding facility and research center. That is why there are invasive snakes there and the real numbers are not nearly what are being reported. What I find amusing is that everyone is so worried about Burmese pythons, when thousands of invasive venomous snakes got out at the same time.

    There really isn’t a problem with these snakes. They can’t spread out of south Florida due to climate and temperature fluctuations. The numbers of giant constrictors in Florida are low and they are not breeding like the media claims.

    Snakes are cheap to care for. A 20 foot python is less expensive to keep and care for than a miniature poodle is. Yes, snakes can escape their enclosure. They usually stick around close to it because they’re timid animals. They’re not like a dog that gets out of a back yard and strolls down the street right off the bat.

    No offense but you need to do some research on snakes that involves people that actually keep snakes and know them, not what the idiot box is force feeding you. You’ll find that most of what you believe about snakes is not reality.

    In every example where a snake has killed a person or child, the snake was abused or neglected or the owner was negligent in handling the animal. This has been well researched but is not discussed in the media. Instead, we see fear mongering stories with little basis in fact. Like the two kids killed in Canada. The blood python was blamed but by the coroners report, the wounds and cause of death couldn't have been because of the snake. But the snake was blamed and killed.

    I'm a father as well and obviously a pet owner... I've taught my daughter not to fear but to learn and understand. Do snakes demand respect? Absolutely. Do they deserve to be feared? Nope.

    My daughter and Brownie, one of her snakes...

    There is a higher rate of attack, bite and even death with a dog than with a snake. Snakes can be big and scary but they’re not like dogs... and don’t get me wrong, I love both dogs and snakes. Snakes are not the monsters you think they are.

    Actually, yes, at this time it is. For a long time, scientists wondered why longer specimens were not being recovered. The answer is the same for giant insects. The oxygen content in our atmosphere is too low. Raise it up about 3% and you can get larger snakes and spiders. Raise it up 5% and you can get snakes the size of Titanaboa.

    Like I said, I’d LOVE for their to be snakes larger than they are. My retic is 18 feet long and 270 pounds. The largest living snake now is “Twinkie” the reticulated python. Do a youtube search on that and you’ll see her. She’s a gentle giant just like most of these snakes are. She’s 330 pounds I believe.

    They’re not the scary monsters that many people think they are. Get past the fear and ignorance and you’ll see they’re really incredible animals that are not nearly as a threat as many claim they are.

    there has never been a scientifically recorded specimen of any modern snake longer than 24 feet. Trust me, I wish there was. The longest scientifically recorded snake was a reticulated python named Fluffy that died at the Ohio zoo in 2012. She was 23 feet 9 inches long.
