He says most major gun-related organizations agree that gun ownership carried with it special res- pensibilities, especially when children are around, Common safety recommen- dations include: Childproof" a revol- ver by securing a padlock around the top strap of the weapon or by using a trigger lock. Store handguns and ammunition in separate locations. Do not store your handgun among your val- uables, in a bedside table or under your mattress or pillow. Become thoroughly familiar with the storage cleaning and use of any firearm in your home. Don't rely on a fire- arm's safety device - treat every gun as if it were loaded and ready to fire. while these recommen- dations may sound like common sense, Bower says one study found half of surveyed families who experts ranked known risk 1990-91 Hunting Seasons from pesticides far down and Regulations, the dates View From the list.

Their leaders, William Brewster and William Bradford decided to take the pilgrims, as they were later called, to Holland, a free country. After twelve years .they believed they could have a better and freer life in the New World and set sail on the May- flower, After they landed at Plymouth Rock, life was not easy. Many were ill and died, leaving only 55 of the original 101. Indians were friendly, tho, and they had a good crop the first year. In the fall of 1621 the Pilgrims invited their Indian friends and some 90 people sat down to Thanksgiving dinner. In Levitical law a Harvest Festival or "Pentecost Fes- tival", since it was held 50 days after the First Fruits, was held each year by the Israelites. It is one of seven holy convocations recorded in Leviticus Chapter 23. Many believe the Pilgrims were think- ing of the Harvest Festi- val on their thanksgiving day. Psalms 100 says "he thankful unto Him and bless His name", and we are told throughout scripture to honor and re- verence God by a life of thankfulness. We can show our love for God, too, by being thankful to people around us and blessing them (Matt. 25:40). We are not told how many times to pray as the Islam are, but we can find ample occasions to be thankful; such as at meals, on arising and retiring, and at church, of course.
