Default if hunting were banned

I am curious, consider this question and your answer well before commenting.

If all hunting and fishing were banned tomorrow.

would you abide by the law, and never hunt or fish again.

consider all future posibilities, even the extreme ones....

Hopefully it never happens, however, the current addminstration would like to impose this very law, it would in my most humble opinion, insure their defeat for a 2nd term. When extreme governmental policies remove the fundamental rights of its citizens, then its up to the people to take them back. A time will come when the testing of the people's reserve will happen. How do you stack up?

very good, now the clincher.

your work to over turn the law is in vein, it can never be over turned. it was drafted that way when passed.

I agree! And taking them back is what I have been attempting to convey in many of these discussions, "taking back" may even occure physically before politically.

All Laws can be overturned the only way to defeat this sort of law is through the Political process,
trying to take back individual rights by any other means is criminal and only creates more of a problem not a solution.

Every Law can be changed "IF" the voting majority decides to Unite to make it happen through the voting process.

Obviously, this question is an extension of the hunting poll discussion that's been going on here, and was raised, as a hypothetical, to see what some of the guys (Ronn and Bruce) would do in an extreme situation. Looks like they are sticking to their guns (no pun intended ... really). To me, that just shows these guys have thought this through - even to an extreme and are not changing their stance. That just reinforces my belief in their integrity. Whether you agree with them or not, you gotta respect these gentlemen.

thanks onehorse. i figured out a long time ago that "they" can take way my job, money, guns, everything, but there is something no one can ever take, ones values or principles. this shouldn't be for sale at any price, unfortunately there are some that circum to the pressures to sell (some poloticians leap to mind), held onto at all costs, and never given away. all that other stuff one can live without but without principles one has lost. i've tried to teach my kids this. i hope it took.
