John Kerry, Lifelong Hunter - AND Animal Rightist??

Recall that last November during the Iowa Caucus, Kerry (with cameras rolling) took to a cornfield with a shotgun and blasted two pheasant. He folded the suckers. BLAM!-BLAM! Two shots. Two dead pheasant. "I've been hunting all my life!" he grinned while hefting the mangled birds. "I love doves too. You just gut 'em and hang for a few days. I love 'em cold roasted." Some think this clinched his victory in Iowa.

Terry McCauliffe and crew said "No Mas!" Never again! Those pheasant paid the price - a little "collateral damage" on the way to a Democratic triumph next fall, let's call it. Animal rightists shut their eyes, grimaced and banged their Hare Krishna finger-cymbals while chanting for Earth Goddess Gaia's reprieve.

But they sucked it up manfully. Kerry's still their man.

Lifelong hunter, pheasant slayer, dove eviscerator, John Kerry gets a perfect 100 for his Congressional voting record from every animal rights group in the U.S. The National Rifle Association just sent out a notice to this effect. "I've had my name on every piece of animal rights legislation ever passed by Congress!" Kerry boasted - not in rural Iowa - but to the Humane Society a bit later.

And don't confuse Humane USA with the folks who build shelters for orphaned puppies and kitties. Humane USA is a PAC (political action committee) for a gaggle of the most virulent animal rights groups in the U.S., all opposed to hunting, trapping, fur-wearing, animal testing - the whole bit. Since these groups are technically "charities," they can't fund political candidates. So they go through Humane USA.

I don't need convincing of this, but our bird gun brethren and rifle-only deer hunters do.

I am an animal rights kinda guy, I have no cymbals and don't worship Gaia.
I hate Kerry (don't like Bush either).

I have no designs on outlawing hunting, If asked I'd rather reason with you about it.

So is this a hunters forum or a Second Amendment forum?

-Notice I didn't say knuckledragging hunters

:D

I'm shocked. Truly shocked.

This is not a view that many in the larger "Animal Rights" groups would endorse. I would like to hear your perspective in more detail.

You have piqued my curiosity.

Hey, cut the guy a break. The wind was blowing in different directions on the days in question. :)

I believe in the maxim "your right to swing your arm stops at the tip of my nose"

I also feel making something illegal accomplishes nothing. People who feel it's their right etc. will do it anyway. To really illicit change you must persuade and get agreement. I used to hunt BTW and my "personal" viewpoint changed about killing and eating animals. If you feel it's ok for you, who am I to say you are wrong?

Second Amendment forum with political threads. Since hunting involves firearms (for the most part but bow hunting is very popular too) figured this fit. Am trying to enlist as many people as possible to get the message to those gun owners who are mostly hunters and not involved in the gun rights movement to understand that Kerry is bad for them too.

Why the surprise? Remember that Patricia Ireland and the rest of NOW backed an accused rapist and proven sexual predator in two consecutive elections.
