This is a discussion on NRA's Right To Hunt And Fish Amendments Adopted In Three States within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Fe...d.aspx?id=6070...
Arkansas was one of the three. The only real opposition to this came from the humane society and peta. Their reasoning was that hunting wasn't under attack. Why be against this amendment then? I'm proud of the state of Arkansas and the voters. They shot peta in the foot. Pun intended.
We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
How sad is it that we have to list our rights. Remember when it was considered a right by the mere fact that it wasn't listed?
When you vote, read the entire item you are voting on.
I read the entire amendment and voted YES. I have a friend who just read "hunting and fishing amendment" and voted NO because he thought they wanted to change the laws in TN and he liked them just fine the way they are.
I really like the margins by which they passed, 82% in Arkansas, 89% in South Carolina and 90% in Tennessee. It's good to see that the fortunes poured in by anti hunting organizations was squandered. They will soon be as irrelavent as the Brady kooks.
Kansas also passed a RKBA amendment by a whopping 9:1 margin!
"First gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand."
