At Least Connecticut is Civilized

Aaarrrgggh!  No, not the BRIMSTONE again!

Connecticut has a current law that forbids hunting squirrels with dynamite:
"No person shall take or attempt to take any gray squirrel, rabbit or other fur-bearing animal protected by law by the use of … dynamite or other explosive compound, or by fire, smoke, brimstone, sulphur, gas or chemical …." 
I would really enjoy learning why this law is on the books.  That would be a hell of a good story.   Do you know where I can buy a can of brimstone?

Mike, thanks for the tip! I also found bags of manna and a cool zombie hunter polo shirt.

Exactly how annoyed to you have to be at the little creatures to go this far? I noticed you can shoot them, so the snakes in Laurel are safer than the critters here are.
