    Gun Groups Support Cap & Trade, but this gun rights/2nd Amendment blogger is pissed off about it.




    Hunting Groups Climb On Board with Cap and Trade | Shall Not Be Questioned



    A favorite pastime of hunters and groups that represent hunting is to slit their own wrists. We don’t need Wayne Pacelle when hunters are completely willing to off themselves. Study after study has shown that the primary impediment to people going hunting is the lack of places to hunt. With increasing sprawl, hunters and anglers find themselves having to go farther than farther out to find land to hunt and fish on. And what is the primary thing that lets hunters and anglers get to far away and remote places to hunt? Energy. Namely gasoline and diesel. So how is gasoline and diesel being a lot more expensive going to help hunters? That’s why I’m displeased more than a few hunting groups have signed on to the National Wildlife Federations mission to get crap and trade passed the Senate. For of you who are curious, the complete list of groups signing on can be found here (large PDF, warning):
    1. American Fisheries Society
    2. American Fly Fishing Trade Association
    3. American Sportfishing Association
    4. Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies
    5. Berkley Conservation Institute
    6. Campfire Club
    7. Dallas Safari Club
    8. Ducks Unlimited
    9. Houston Safari Club
    10. Izaak Walton League of America
    11. Mule Deer Foundation
    12. National Trappers Association
    13. National Wildlife Federation
    14. Pheasants Forever
    15. Quality Deer Management Association
    16. The Wildlife Society
    17. Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership
    18. Trout Unlimited
    19. Wildlife Forever
    20. Wildlife Management Institute
    Only a few of these groups are actually hunting and fishing groups, but if you belong to any of them, I’d quit, and call them up and make sure you know why. They do not look after the interests of hunters. I can tell you in at least one of the cases, the Mule Deer Foundation, they are actively supporting HSUS’s attempts to restrict hunting. They are bad news for hunters.

    I don't have a problem finding a place to hunt or fish. I drive the truck about two miles, take a left - go about a quarter of a mile down a dirt road, park, get out, start killing things.

    Not a problem.

    I guess that's great for you, but just to be clear, are you saying you favor the 2nd Amendment advocate's position, or do you support the hunting groups position of support for cap & trade in order to preserve areas to hunt with guns for future generations?

    About as authoritative as "Toy collectors on board for Cap and Trade".

    Pardon the loud squealing of my Irrelevancy Alarm, but I can't seem to shut it off when I get around this thread.
