Guns shouldn’t be only issue for sportsmen

Published Friday, October 3, 2008

If you are an avid hunter and target shooter like me, you should be
relieved to know that neither presidential candidate wants to take away
your right to enjoy your sport.

Obama and McCain both support the Second Amendment, which gives each of
us the right to bear arms. Obama and McCain both have voted against a
number of restrictive gun provisions, including the right of the federal
government to confiscate firearms during emergencies.

What is interesting is that both candidates have also drawn the ire of
the NRA for their support of criminal background checks for purchasers
at large gun shows.

However, there are other positions that the candidates have taken that
may be important in helping sportsmen decide how to vote this November.

McCain has voted against the Conservation Reserve Program and the
Wetlands Reserve Program (Obama co-sponsored) that are strongly
supported by Ducks Unlimited and Pheasants Forever.

To my fellow Ohio Sportsmen, the good news is that both Obama and McCain
will protect our right to enjoy our sport, so there is not much to
choose between on this issue. On the other hand, there are a great
number of very important non-sportsman issues, which will decide what
kind of world, and country future generations will live in.

There are big differences between the candidates, it just does not have
to do with guns.

:shock: Oh my!!
Hence it is, that democracies have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths
