We have had a fire ban on for a few months which includes shooting, rained this afternoon and due to rain tomorrow so hopefully it will be listed.

Actually l-1 next year as I have a infra-transferable business. I know they’re looking to ban l-1 temporarily as election time is coming

An I visa is for media, I have not seen a possible “ban” announced for them only the H and L visas, although it would not surprise me if it did.

I think that's a lower-case L.

Hi Neighbor! My go to site. I'm sure the other counties have something similar. I have heard gunshots (I think) very occasionally, but not heard of many shootings in the last 15 years.

And on this side of the Skyway, I'm in no-mans-land (think high development area that should be rural but is quickly becoming sub-division sameness), there are a dozen older properties covering about couple hundred acres on our lane and no-one has sold out to the developers yet. Gunfire is common most weekends, all calibers, occasionally like last night we will hear a single shot and have to go outside to make sure everything is still in one piece.

I have more concern about issues with drunk/idiot drivers than I do getting shot.
