    They voted them in to "protect us"

    Vote 'em out. Isn't everyone sick and tired of the BS in regulating the public?

    The news casters as always hosed things up again. What they are doing is to make a place on the beach for people to play football, soccer and toss a frisbee. This will only happen when the beaches are packed to avoid people getting bonked on the head with a ball while they are taking in the sun. Shhhhhh they didn't say anything about making holes. (even though I cover mine up, after picking out the trash)

    I am guessing digging holes and not filling them in is part of it. Like kids building caves on the beach deeper than 18 inches. I have to say I agree with it. Here in NJ we have treasure hunters (adults) who readily dig holes all over the beach and not fill them. Lots of other beach goers have to navigate around then so as not to trip or fall while on the beach. You just can't tell these hunters anything, they all have a come back.... tide,waves, wind, kids dig I can too, ect.. I have seen many of people trip in holes on the beach not all from metal detecting. Here is a short video I shot last year after a few words none of them printable here.The old guy gave me the finger and ran off under the pier.

    That vid is really obnoxious....
    I would have to say something to someone like that.
    Can you imagine the liability if some one was to step in one of those while
    jogging and break their foot ?

    In 30 years of hunting I have not seen something so bad.
    I normally cover up even other holes when I see them, but have never seen anything like this..
    I admit, that sometimes my holes are not covered as well as they might should be...
    But never like this...
    So so sad.

    Just as a note I did cover these holes and do step on the side of others holes as I hunt down the beach.
    I have been hunting since 1974 and this type of bad behavior has increased more and more each year. I am starting to see it in parks and vacant lots!
    What pisses me off more is hunters who post this is bad and you figure out there names from forums and then you find them on the beach leaving holes your left wondering what the $#@%.

    A report by television station KNTV in Los Angeles said Thursday that LA beaches will soon be levying fines for those who throw footballs or Frisbees on their beaches.

    The fines, which could cost violators up to $1,000, are an attempt to protect beach attendees from being hit by flying objects, the report stated. Special permission would be necessary for a person to be allowed to have such objects on the beach, and "no structure used for ball-playing purposes" (like a goal) will be permitted on the beach, according to KNTV.

    The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors said this is the first time since the 1980s that beach rules had been updated. The 37-page local law was written to clear up what will be allowed on beaches going forward. According to the report, it also clarified the powers and duties of lifeguards to keep order.

    Now, from late May to early September, the only objects allowed on the beach for play are beachballs and beach volleyballs, the law states. Other "light objects" have been deemed possibly dangerous, and would result in a fine if used on the beaches.

    A spokeswoman for the new law told KNTV, "The rules are put in place so that during a busy, crowded summer beach day, no one is put at risk by a spontaneous football game."

    Also banned by the new law is the digging of any sandpits by children that are deeper than 18 inches, but an exception to that rule may be granted during television and film productions.

    I've mentioned to other water hunters that they should fill their holes in the water. In the surf it is different, but in freshwater there isn't that much wave action and people can twist ankles. It only takes a couple complaints and water detecting is off limits too.

    See - now THAT is the problem with our society - all over the United States.

    Everyone wants government out of our business, EXCEPT for the things that they think the government should do something about.

    I'm sick and tired of laws, laws, laws.

    Here's one law that helps the majority.
    Can't dig deeper than 18 inches ? So what . If i hit A quarter at 8 inches i'm thrilled. On dry sand ,If i cant reach it in three or four deep scoops , i'll move on.
    These laws have nothing to do with metal detecting.
