I have never been against hunting with the exception of trophy hunting, (Safari Club International)

I have been known to fish occasionally. Trapping, however, I have a personal problem with. Years ago

I was hiking and found a couple of rotting animal carcasses on a game trail. So I ran the game trail and

(probably admitting to an old felony now) sank about a dozen leg-hold traps to the bottom of The Ohio.  

Would I do it again? Oh, you betcha.

 

I'll oppose this only because it's an unnecessary political statement of no actual value.

It's taken up legislative time and effort that could have been better utilized elsewhere.

My take on free speech. Present company excepted.
I've always operated under this proviso. Your right to free speech stops at my fist. Call me "old school".


Are you saying that it's possible for you to be so emotionally hurt and offended by the words of another person that you would punch him?

Nope. I liken it to a teaching moment.

I believe the saying is: "Your right to swing your fists ends at my nose."  No need to get Neanderthal.  Punching people is not a "teaching moment." 

 

We're trying to determine how to vote on a specific detail put on the ballot.

The InterWebs have convinced the Chairborne Rangers that "free speech" means they can say anything they please with impunity.

Trust me when I tell you that I don't support that belief. I was raised that you can say anything you are big enough to back up. I've lived a very long time, always said what I believed and have the scars to prove it.

I support the ballot issue and will vote for its passage.

So does a physically handicapped dude have a lessor right to speak than a guy big enough and strong enough to kick your arse? Does a woman? Child?

I respectfully refuse to dignify your question with a response.

Why?

You said you can say whatever you can back up.

Does is not follow that someone with less ability to physically fight has less right to speak?

Why would this be on the ballot?  What legislator petitioned for this?  Indiana has large swaths of rural areas and hunting/fishing is a way of life.  There are already plenty of rules to go by.  Think I'll vote "no" on this one unless someone can 'splain it to me!

To me it is easy.

Hunting and fishing..... providing for yourself and your family..... should be a constitutionally protected right.

 

I will be voting yes.

I didn't vote on the question.  I wasn't exactly sure what it meant.
