CONRAD： I can't believe I'm actually going to do this.
RICK： You'll have a good time. Duck season is one of my favorite times of the year.
CONRAD： But like I said， in Taiwan it is strictly illegal to have guns. It is illegal.
RICK： I know. I don't think that's reasonable.
People in a free society should have the right to own guns.
In America， it's in our Constitution.
CONRAD： Well， there are a lot of reasons people in Taiwan can't have guns.
I think one of them is that it is so crowded.
RICK： Even so， I think it is the right of citizens to have guns.
Otherwise， only the government has the guns. And the government can oppress you.
CONRAD： Hmm. I see. So will it be cold？
RICK： Yes， it will probably be cold. I only hope it doesn't rain.
And sometimes it gets pretty windy.
CONRAD： You said we aren't going to be walking a lot.
RICK： Oh， no， not at all really.
When you duck hunt， you just sit in the blind. You wait for the ducks to come to you.
CONRAD： What is the “blind”？
RICK： The blind is made of bales of straw. It's for camouflage.
It's kind of like a little wall of straw that you hide behind.
CONRAD： But why would the ducks come？
RICK： Because we put decoys out.
CONRAD： “Decoys”？ What are those？
RICK： We put a bunch of artificial ducks on the water. They're called decoys.
The real ducks see them， and then they fly over to join the party. Then we shoot.
CONRAD： Can we eat the ducks we shoot？
RICK： Certainly. When we get back down to Rockford，
I'll clean them and have Betty make us some nice roast duck.
CONRAD： I hope I get a couple.
RICK： Don't worry. You will. But you must be careful. I don't want you to get me.
CONRAD： Oh， I'll be careful. You just have to show me how to use the gun.
