"Gold Dome Live Senate passes measure to allow drivers to keep road kill
12:22 pm April 29, 2010, by Ernie Suggs

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Georgia is one of the top 10 states in the country in deer-related auto accidents. Now, drivers can get some just desserts – or dinner.

The Senate gave final passage to SB 474, which allows drivers to keep any bear or deer that they might run over. The so-called Road Kill Bill, carried by Sen. Don Thomas of Dalton, passed 47-0.

“This is hot of the grill,” Thomas said, tongue planted firmly in cheek. “And I urge you to support it.”

According to the bill, “Any person may take possession of native wildlife which has been killed by a motor vehicle.”

That was not always the case – at least with bears.

In the past, if someone hit and killed a bear, the Department of Natural Resources could take it to mount or place in a museum.

Thomas said drivers now have the option to keep their bears as long as they report the accident to DNR within 48 hours. They don’t have to report a deer strike."

Did Sonny sign it?

Sounds like open season to me for any ya-hoo with a brushguard on his truck.

It will be extremely dangerous on the road with all these red neck hunters out there trying to run down a deer at night with their pickup . Night hunting will be legal, on the highway that is.

roadkill cafe..
you kill it...
we grill it.....

Couch commented on Thursday, Apr 29, 2010 at 22:55 PM

I don't think we'll have people trying to hit seers with trucks... Seems a tad dumb, seeing as your car will get damaged pretty hard.

I really can't do much about this bill other than laugh. Jeff Foxworthy will have a ball with this.

wildturkey commented on Thursday, Apr 29, 2010 at 22:57 PM

cant remember the last time i killed a seer with my truck.....

Couch commented on Thursday, Apr 29, 2010 at 23:23 PM

Another typo. I meant deer. The d and the s are close together and the iPhone keyboard is small.

lickyourchops commented on Thursday, Apr 29, 2010 at 23:27 PM

What is a sheer?

Couch commented on Thursday, Apr 29, 2010 at 23:29 PM

I don't think anyone mentioned a sheer.

katieog commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 06:05 AM

Yes, indeed, they spent their 40 days of legislation fruitfully...thanks to our illustrious leaders, it is against the law to implant a microchip in anyone without his/her consent.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, our schools are being decimated, a statewide mass transportation plan is still a pipedream, and local governments continue to be crippled and hamstrung by onerous mandates and loss of local control.

Perhaps we ought to be glad they only meet for 40 days each year.

SNOOPY commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 07:17 AM

Katie - I could not agree more.

WT - If you kill a seer (fortune teller) with your truck, do you get to keep the crystal ball?

wildturkey commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 09:14 AM

snoop, i think i would probly pass on the crystal ball.
knowing the past, i would probly shoot myself if i were to see the future......

BookLady commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 09:32 AM

We used to have a statewide mass transportation system. I remember as a child riding on the Nancy Hanks to go shopping in Atlanta. This was back in the day when shopping was done downtown, all the stores were close together, and some large stores like Davisons had their own restaurants. I am old.

watchdog commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 12:01 PM

Couch I have to agree with you on this - nobody is going to intentionally hit a deer or a bear with their trucks, even with a brush guard. SNOOPY, you know what kind of damage a deer or bear would do. There are some really dense people out there, but I don't think this bill will encourage hunting by truck.

And any country person worth his salt will tell you if they wanted to keep the road kill in the past, they did. But most people don't want it because the deer is so broken up, the meat is not really worth the trouble.

A deer killed during still hunting is better meat because the muscles are not filled with blood, as they would be if the deer were killed on the run or hit by a car.

Katieog, I agree with you on the idiotic things our legislators spend time on when there are more pressing issues.

Couch commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 12:10 PM

Bears can be anywhere from 90-500 pounds. That kinda weight combined with speed is probably enough to total your car easily. Even a small deer can weight 60 pounds, and if you've seen what that can do to a vehicle...It's not pretty.

Now, if we want to argue that people will run over squirrels, I'd buy that. A squirrel can't do much damage...But a deer? Or a bear?

I'm actually glad it's against the law to implant a microchip in anyone without his/her consent.

watchdog commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 13:23 PM

Yeah. We really needed that bit of legislation since the Man is out to get us and microchip all of us so he can control us. Dang! Where did I leave my tin foil hat.....

"The pill also contains a tiny microchip, one about the size of a period."

Looks like it's possible to me.

watchdog commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:08 PM

The patient wuld have to agree to wear the monitor that tells whether he or she took the meicine.. therefore, consent.

Tritranth_the_abecedarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:10 PM

I am saying it is possible that a microchip could be implanted within us without our consent.

HopeIsNotLost commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:13 PM

We all have microchips implanted in us already. Didn't you know that? They come in at night when you are sleeping (like the tooth fairy) and implant them in everyone of us.

Tritranth_the_abecedarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:14 PM

I prefer to believe in facts. Do you have any type of proof to back up your statement? If not, recant.

HopeIsNotLost commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:17 PM

And, if you have a computer they watch you through your computer screen. I found that out about a month ago. I now cover my monitor up if I am not using it. I also make funny faces and moon it every once in a while. I love Fridays.

Tritranth_the_abecedarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:19 PM

Proof or recant your statements, please.

watchdog commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:43 PM

I am sure it could be, but highly unlikely. Unless, of course, you're like me, who is a test dummy for the aliens. They came to me one night and implanted several modules that are so far superior to microchips, it's impossible to explain to the human mind what they are. I understand, since they implanted them in my sinuses, which is why I have sinus trouble.

I would prove it Tri-it-you-might-like-it, but you could not comprehend. Unless... you have those modules in your sinuses too.

Tritranth_the_abecedarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 15:47 PM

"Highly unlikely"? That article, combined with basic knowledge of GPS is enough to scare anyone half to death.

borolibertarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 16:18 PM

I think it's perfectly reasonable and even common sense to pass laws that basically say we have a right to our own bodies from being forcibly injected with anything. We already have laws that say we have a basic right not to be touched (why do you think we have laws against assault, rape, and the like?). Liberty itself is based on the principle of self-ownership. You own your own body. No one has a higher claim to your body than you. To deny this is to claim someone else owns you or your body. Hopefully, we recognize that as SLAVERY.

As for those who laugh and mention tinfoil hats and conspiracy theories, the FDA has already approved the USE of a HUMAN-implantable radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip in 2004. It's called a VeriChip. Georgia is actually the fourth state to pass laws against it (one of those being California), and four more states have introduced legislation.

Tritranth_the_abecedarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 16:26 PM

The VeriChip is one of the scariest pieces of technology that I can think of that has came out of the last decade.

watchdog commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 16:35 PM

My point exactly, borolibertarian. There are laws protecting people from these things. But really - how likely is it that these things could happen? I never said it was impossible, but probable??? Really?

Tritranth_the_abecedarian commented on Friday, Apr 30, 2010 at 18:14 PM

Quite an interesting read. I'm not an Infowars follower, but this is some scary stuff.
