    Combine one idiotic State Legislature with The Lacey Act, and you have the potential to lose your right to hunt "the big 5"........(well, giraffe are BIG).........dangerous times for us..............thanks for posting.............FWB

    This is the part that was most alarming to me (although the whole article made my head spin).......”We hope they too concede the importance of SB20 — that it recognizes legal trophy hunting as one of the main reasons that Africa’s Big Five face extinction. “

    No facts or knowledge of the subject needed, plenty of ill informed opinion to fill the columns.

    Did not surprise me! Those folks think that if any gun is involved it’s wrong and should be outlawed.

    I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I read we hunters "shoot animals full of bullets". Whoever scribbled that lunacy should be in the funny farm. They are an insult to sanity.

    As my brother-in-law states, half the population is below average in intelligence, have you seen average lately? Scary the loons that get to vote. When the US was established you had to own property to vote. The premise being that only value adding citizens should vote. I would submit that a good proxy would be taxes. If you pay income tax you have a say in the running of the country, otherwise enjoy your free ride but don’t think you get a free ride and a vote!

    I would move out of the states if I could find a place where a CCW cost me 12.50 USD for a 5 year permit and I could own, hunt,shoot all these firearms(not all i own)along with ammo with no permits needed.

    Perhaps we should all get together and declare our own country? Being a productive member of the society I’m growing weary of my leash being constantly shortened in the name of social justice and for “my own safety and well being”. I cannot remember last law passed in either of two jurisdictions I’m under that was aimed at or had a chance of actually improving my life and opportunities.
