PETA Urging Junior Hunting Ban

In Arizona, they are trying to ban hunting for kids under 18:

“Teaching children to see others as nothing more than living targets has deadly consequences that can extend into the human population. We urge you to support legislation to ban children under the age of 18 from hunting.”

PETA is the GOA of the animal rights movement.  Under the new Obama Administration, it’ll be group like HSUS, which use much more clever marketing and fundraising schemes, and who set realistic and achievable goals, that we’ll really have to worry about.  Nontheless, PETA is instructive as to how radical animal rights people think.

    Have you seen the blog that prompted this letter? (Linked above) Banning children from deadly weapons isn’t a radical concept.

  4. Sebastian says:

    Lianne: Yes, it is a radical concept to most Americans.

    Wow they’re nuts! Shooting a deer teaches kids it’s ok to shoot people…… in what world?

    In a world where you think animals and people are morally and legally equivalent, Mike W. Most Homo Sapiens don’t share this view, but it would seem that those who do are projecting their viewpoint onto those who don’t.

    Arizona? They are trying to do this here in Arizona? Ok, the hunting tradition out here isn’t as strong as it is in the northern midwest / north east, but c’mon. This is just dumb. It won’t go anywhere.

    Except that every kid is taught that you never bring a firearm to bear on something you aren’t planning to kill, not by accident, not when unloaded, not ever. Having seen mortality via a hunt, you develop a reverence and respect for all life.

    I suppose when PETA was taking dogs from the shelter in NC and killing them in the back of a van, they were missed the similarity of their actions to serial killers, i.e., seeing “others” as disposable simply on a whim. Strange, I know of no hunters who view their prey in such a manner.
