    I am compelled to write a reply to the Anonymous writer (8:18am) who wrote a reply to another Anonymous writer above his. Anyways, in his reply, he tried to portrayed the Hmong people as “cocky, angry, shoot anything that moves” type of people. This guy must belong to the local Iowa KKK club. You can see it in his writings. The most ignorant piece of white trash I’ve encountered all over Iowa and Wisconsin. White trash people like these usually are descendants of German people. Hitler’s type of people. That explains a lot of white trash people.

    Seems like foul play was involved. If not a follow up of the accident would have been out by now. Media cover up i say.

    We all needed to pass a written test before we’re allowed to take and pass a driving test. Everyone, especially out of state residents should have to pass a written test of said state’s hunting laws. I don’t care what language they take the test in, you must pass and be accountable. No more “I didn’t know the law” BS. This leaves a bad impression for the rest of Asians that know and follow the laws.

    Gun safety is extremely simple. Accidents and stupid choices are different things. Not claiming to know what happened just saying if you’re paying attention nothing bad should happen.

    Years back at public park in Iowa a couple of Asian fellows from minnesooota we shooting squirrels – hunting season not open yet. Were grilling them on one of the barbecue pits provided. – just threw them on -not skinned or bowled – eating them and the DNR was called -DNR let them go because they did not understand Iowas hunting laws. Hows that for a kick in the butt?

      Hmongs. They follow ZERO rules. Almost got shot by some hmongs on opening day of dove. Dnr needs to do an extra good job of harassing any hmongs they can find. Dangerous, angry, cocky, mean people. Tried to steal some of my birds and claim they shot them as well. Hmongs shouldn’t be allowed to own firearms or hunt.
