    Sooner or later a lot of things are going to happen but that is something we have to live with. People build cabins in wilderness and desert they know the hazards and risk so that is no excuse to write laws or interfere with our gun rights. I do agree with the ban of tracer bullets in plinking but the idea to ban shooting guns is an outright infringement and offensive thought that police would get over zealous and include any where in the country.

    Besides, fires in the deserts and wilderness are normal and do more good for the environment than trying to fight the fires. Wild fires should be left to burn and monitor if needed but fires are just as natural as rain, snow, or wind. Most of the time when fires spread beyond normal size the land must be in need of a good cleanup by mother nature.

    States just need to do a better job in public awareness with at risk no fire/hazards support exclusion zoning when developing the land in these areas. Taxpayers should not be held liable for hasty and wrong development in wilderness areas of the state.
