caution to the wind, wake up call, whatever you want to call it.
"02-11-2010 02:49 PM ronn you guys are missing my point, i guess, or i'm not making myself clear. the gov't isn't the one taking your privilege away. its the law abiding hunters that is taking it away. if someone poaches a deer, hunters want them to lose their privilege to hunt. is this not correct? depends. too many variable to consider.
the tool we, the public and hunters, use to accomplish this is through the laws we get passed by those we elect. so its a privilege afforded you not by the gov't but by other hunters and they/we are the only ones that can take that privilege away."
I do not agree with this at all. first, it is not a privilege. second, this all sounds great in the world of rosy colored glasses, but in reality it just don't work that way. in a room of 10 people where 7 are idiots how does the the rights of the good and fair get to be law. and don't forget above the 10 in the room there are the pocket padded lobbyist toting politicians whose only concern in most cases is having the same job forever.
"02-11-2010 02:16 PM hunt NH back to topic hunting and fishing is a god given right. under extreem circumstances rights can be taken away. look at the second admendment. you have the right to keep and bear arms, but if you are a convicted fellon that you can not have a gun. just because you can loose it due to being stupid dont mean that its not my right. i will defend my right to keep and bear arms to the death, and wont commit a felony so that right can not be taken from me. lets all stop calling things privalages just because our over grown Govt. can take it away."
what if tomorrow, all misdemeanor crimes are elevated to felony status?
