Letter: State rulers, we need safety cages

I think just about everyone has had the government rain on their parade at one time or another. But the recent signing of numerous pieces of anti-gun and anti-hunting legislation by the governor has really got to me.

When is the utopian-sucking left going to come out and just say they want to control us and take our guns and ammo away? It was the poor houndsmen last year having their sport ended. This year it is my turn.

This year is just one more step toward control of us. Wake up, Kool-Aid drinkers. They may reduce your take-home pay soon.

For me, they outlawed the use of lead bullets for hunting. That is a big deal. They used a weak-kneed and bad science excuse that lead poisons tons of game. It does not. Nothing is 100 percent safe. Nothing!

This brings me to my point. The “clean” wind turbines are killing golden eagles and other raptors. Other birds succumb to this tragic end as well. You would think that the Sacramento autocrats, good-meaning as they are, would champion the safety of this federal trust species, the golden eagle, on our behalf. A call for safety cages around all wind turbines must be put forward at once.

Where are the anti-gun, Humane Society biddies on this topic? We need you. Not!

    Lead is allowed in our food but not our ammo.

    Huh? [sleeping]

    As far as hunting with lead is concerned, though I am not a hunter I do believe hunting an animal requires the use of steel coated rounds, as a rifle is needed to bring down an deer, moose, elk, don`t try taking down a wile bore with a shotgun. A shotgun which is used for water fowl. Bill you talk about Kool-Aid, I suggest you take off your tin foiled hat. For the skilled hunter the use of a bow and arrow makes the ultimate hunter, not at 200' with a sniper scope.

    As far a 100% safe, though there might be more than one, I submitt for your thought that a Vasectomy is 100% safe, works for me and the last 45 years.[beam]

    Just curious....what exactly does the phrase "utoptian-sucking left" actually mean?

    And a clarification - the hound hunting legislation passed last year was SPECIFICALLY in regard to banning the use of hounds to hunt bears and bobcats. Hound hunting of bears is already illegal in half of the states.

    Hounds may still be used to hunt a rogue bear or bobcat with permission/request from Fish and Game.

    Lead bullets are less expensive than those made from copper or other metals.

    BTW - hunting water fowl with lead shot has been banned nationwide already.

    Serious question, Bill. Why is lead important?
