Default Animal Rights Activists at it in Pa.

Here is something I just received in an alert. Seems the animal rights folks are wanting to chip away at us again. Start small then gain momentum and then...... what's next?


PENNSYLVANIA
Animal rights activists are pressuring your State Representatives to put a stop to the century old tradition of pigeon shoots in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania! Early next week, the House Judiciary Committee will be voting on House Bill 73, sponsored by Representative Frank Shimkus (D-113). House Bill 73 is a proposal that would ban pigeon shoots in the Commonwealth. This meeting was scheduled at the request of the Judiciary Committee Chair for Tuesday, February 13, Room 205, Ryan Office Building. Pigeon shoots are a traditional and international shooting sport. We cannot let this longstanding tradition disappear! Many of the animal "rights" activists who have protested these shoots are not residents of Pennsylvania. Their tactics have hardly been laudable; rather they have often been in violation of the law. Banning pigeon shoots would be a first step in advancing their agenda, and they won't stop there! Please call your State Representative at (717) 787-2372, and urge him or her to stand against the pressures of animal rights activist and oppose House Bill 73!

I didn't know they still had pigeon shoots. I've been to the one in Hegins a few times. Even saw Ted Nugent there one year. The animal rights wackos arived in Greyhound buses.
