  • 1882 patented varmint trap

    I guess this is intended for 4 or 2-legged "varmints".
    In 1882 James Williams filed a patent for this varmint trap. He added that 'This invention may also be used in connection with a door or window, so as to kill any person or thing opening the door or window to which it is attached.'

      COME, my tan-faced children,
      Follow well in order, get your weapons ready;
      Have you your pistols? have you your sharp edged axes? Pioneers! O pioneers!

        Statute 21-4201: Criminal use of weapons.
        (a) Criminal use of weapons is knowingly:

        (5) setting a spring gun;

        Not to rain on anyone's humor, but a rat trap like that is illegal.

        But a little peanut butter and water works fine.

        The people think the Constitution protects their rights; But government sees it as an obstacle to be overcome.
        If your religion says suicide and murder are wrong; Aren't you doing both if you are not prepared to defend your life and the lives of others?

            Almost everything is legal, until it is misused, then they write a law.

            Bali-Song knives were probably legal until Bruce Lee movies.

            Drilling for oil was legal before Al Gore, obama and fellow travellers got power.

            Not to high-jack the humor, but any device that kills or maims without direct human control is a bad idea. An electric stock fence stings and is legal, a high voltage-high amperage fence is generally not. [Government power always retains the power to kill, so government can put up lethal fences around nuclear power locations, military bases, prisons. The level of amperage may be controlled depending on threat levels.]

            The pail of water on a door prank goes back hundred of years to the piss-pot used to keep prowlers away. Made having a dog track them easier too.
