Crunch Time to Halt the NC Commercial Breeder Bill

The NC House Finance Committee is set to hold a hearing on this wretched bill on Thursday morning.  At the Raleigh Gun Show last weekend, many stalwart NRA members and others interested in keeping our hunting heritage asked me what the big deal is.  I'll give you a link to the NRA Legislative Alert and also to the American Kennel Club's Legislative Alert.  Both will give you everything you need to tell your NC State Representative about why this bill is bad news.  For your convenience, I've included a link to the list of the members of the committee so you can voice your opinion with a phone call or an e-mail.

Let me take a stab at explaining why this is a big deal.  The animal rights activists - those who would ban all hunting {and even meat if their dreams came true} work just like the gun control extremists do.  They appeal to emotions, and start with trying to get a law on the books that SEEMS reasonable, but it is really a smoke screen to get their toe in the door. Once they get their way on something that seems innocent and meaningless, they do the same thing again and again until you wake up one morning and wonder where your freedoms went.  The easiest way to stop them is to nip it in the bud and never let them take your liberties in the first place.

Take charge, contact these representative, and make your voice count.
