Rights are granted by the constitution and bill of rights. If it ainít there it is a privilege.

I agree hunting man except that our "rights" given to us by our founding fathers in the Bill of Rights were consisdered God given rights. We are losing these rights because people have refused to acknowledge a god period let alone that he has given us rights as expressed in our constitution

Actually, anything you deem to be your rights, are your rights regardless of what the majority thinks or believes. It all depends on how much you are willing to defend what you believe.


Some would argue that the 2nd amendment is not a right of the people, which is really irrelevant as long as someone is willing to stand up and claim it as a right and defend it.

I disagree!!

These are just defined rights, not all of them. These are only rights afforded by the government, which in most all cases proves inadequate.

ok i think some may be looking at it a little backwards. these "rights", and hunting isn't one of them but, weren't granted, afforded, or given to us, by the words on the paper. they words on the paper stop them from being taken away by gov't.

I have purposely not read the other replies to this post so my reply will not be influenced by what others have said. I believe that rights are God given and can't be taken away. priviledges are on the other hand are afforded us by governments and can be taken from us. All I have to say is I believe hunting is a god given right for the siimple reason that in the Book of Acts, chapter 11, verse 4 God tells Peter "rise, kill, eat"

rattled, responded,....removed from the herd

Sir Smackabuck, while I like to agree with your thoughts, the problem is if the federal gonernment outlawed all hunting and you continued to hunt and got caught and throwned in jail what would be your options? If the Constitution was ammended to outlaw hunting what would you do? I'm only asking questions as I don't have the answers either. I simply wanted people to think about hunting and why we need to protect it through good representatives and government. This I do know if my family was starving no law would prevent me from feeding them!
