Comments: Pike County Rocks!

I can't really say this is symbolic. I grew up down in Greene County (close to Pike) & have known quite a few folks from Pike. I can tell you, they take their Constitutional rights VERY seriously. Anyone who thinks they can go down there and just take their guns will have a very real fight on their hands!

Pike County folk (referred to by many neighbors as "River Rats") epitomize an old "poem" I heard years ago:

"We're the boys from Illinois
we live in caves & ditches,
we drag our c*cks 'cross jagged rocks,
we're mean sons o' bitches!"

Now, let's see if the rest of this candy-assed state will stand with 'em.

It's symbolic because even though the local law enforcement may not enforce it, the state agencies will. And once the state pulls it's funding from the citizens of that county for harboring Illegal activity, more then likely they will back down. That's what I meant by it being symbolic. That and the fact that no laws have been passed.... yet.
