What are your thoughts? Does this girl's wish make you uncomfortable?

okay, first I was hoping this was about NW04. = /

anywho...

As long as it was legal and bear season, why not? It's an odd wish, but it sounds like a lot of kids have 'hunting' wishes.

I did think it was weird that she pretended it was a lion and looked away before she shot. hmm

Yeah.  I find hunting disturbing in general.  I understand the need for population control....but kids using guns?  Not cool.  Also what was most disturbing were the pictures of the dead bear.  I don't need that in my face.

This is a local new item for me and this is very standard around here.  I personally am not a huge fan of hunting but there are several charities that take children with disabilities out hunting and they really enjoy the experience.  It may seem odd to some but in this area it isn't odd at all.

 I have no problem w/ kids hunting.

Kids who hunt, fish and trap don't mug little old ladies.

The only thing I don't like is that she said she turned her head. That's dangerous. There's is nothing wrong or bad about children learning how to use firearms and/ or hunt. She did good!

 Whats "not cool" about children learning to properly use firearms and hunt? And as far as the pictures of the dead bear "in your face" please, there wasnt even any blood.

Blood is not what disturbs me.  Real-life pictures of dead things disturbs me.  If it were a picture of a dead person you'd be disturbed.  I don't care for dead animals, and I think hunting for sport is barbaric and violent.  I am disturbed by sweet little children partaking in violent acts.

I am very serious.  I have incredible respect for all living creatures and killing them for fun seems barbaric and violent to me.  Would you like to further ridicule my spiritual beliefs?
