New Metal Detector Bill In Missouri?

Posted by on April 25, 2013

images (5)In metal detecting news across the US, a new bill in Missouri is about to be approved since residents were in uproar that whatever they found while metal detecting, they were forced to give up. During this time, Missouri state law required that residents turn their objects over to the entity that owns the land. Six areas were listed as restricted included: historical areas, landscaped areas, irrigated lawns, archaeological sites, athletic fields, and any area with a sign prohibiting metal detecting. The only tool permitted is a probe no greater than 1/4″ in diameter and 12″ inches in length. I can imagine many metal detecting fan would feel very frustrated and limited about being able to enjoy their hobby.

Jim Pepper, an O’Fallon city council member received emails from people all over the country about the regulations. In regards to the city code, the article states, “Any member who voted with the majority, may move for reconsideration of the matter at the same or the next succeeding meeting.” Now, a permit for metal detecting is being considered. It is good to see that the community and others from across the US are voicing their opinion about the matter and taking a stand for the metal detecting hobby. While it is understood that states have rights too, it is equally important for others to consider that speaking up about something they enjoy, such as metal detecting is very important as well.

    One frequent perceived technical problem with FeedBurner is the reduced number of subscribers being reported for the blogs using the service. This is not actually a technical problem with FeedBurner, but by the feed readers and aggregators that report to FeedBurner, as FeedBurner collects and tallies from those partners. Usually this problem is connected with one specific RSS reader or client. :`
