I want to know where gun owners tend to keep their guns. As I reason, there are only a few places that can be; (1) at home, (2) in their car or (3) on their person. Are there any statistics or studies that show where people keep their primary firearm - one they may say is mostly for protection as opposed to hunting or target practice (even though that firearm may be used interchangeably by some owners)?
We've lived in our house for about a year and are trying to prioritize what projects need done. The kitchen and bath are in major need of a remodel but I'm not sure how to prioritize this with everything else. The other factor is we are not sure how long we are going to stay in the house - it could be 30 years, it could be 5. [more inside]

I have been battling with the sprinkler system at my house for almost a year (previously on MeFi) and I am about to give up as it appears that it has gotten the better of me, here is a brief history... When we moved in the outdoor watering system was a mess, there were drip lines on 24 hours a day, many of the sprinkler valves were not working properly, etc. I have spent many hours fixing, replacing and getting a better understanding of what is going on out there, I found multiple system and wiring all dead from neglect, quite a mess.

This Christmas we were told by my Dad that he will be giving us his house when he moves out of state. It doesn't have a functioning kitchen (no sink, just a fridge and a microwave and he washes his dishes in a tub with water from the bathroom) The house has charm, and there could be plumbing problems and it's also in a dicey neighborhood. So my question is this: What do we do with this house? Fix it up enough to live in it for the price of utilities and taxes for a few years so we can go back to school? Try to sell it without even fixing it (we'd get maybe $20,000). Fix it up and become landlords after living there for a few years? [more inside]

From what source does the authority to require building permits and inspections derive? I've dealt with this whole process before, but every time I have to, I think, "But hey - it's _my_ property! I paid for it, I pay taxes on it, and I pay for the upkeep. As long as I don't build something that could potentially damage or destroy the property of another, why do I need 'permission' from the government?" I know there are lots of issues involved, but when did we, as a nation, give up the right to do what you want on your own property, and is there a way of getting that right back?
