    We had a discussion about Arizona's similar amendment. I think these amendments are nice. However, they basically mean nothing IMO. Those nine words that I emboldened, pretty much nullify this whole thing, making it a privilege, not a right. Some future state legislature could completely restrict (ban) all hunting within the state, as long as they couched the ban as "reasonable". This amendment wouldn't stand in their way.

    It's nice though. Everyone in the state will get the impression that their hunting tradition is somehow protected by the government. If the 2A had contained those nine words, none of us could own guns today.

    Keep in mind there are NO unrestricted rights in this country and there never have been. From day one there've been limitations on what we can do with our constitutional rights and society would not be able to function if that were not the case.
