From Bill Maher's Facebook page this morning. I love this! 


"Stop saying we have to protect hunters - why? There's food in stores now.The slippery slope is the one that leads back to this outdated bs"

My husband is a hunter. And we save a fortune every year by filling our freezer with meat that he hunts for. Same thing with our cellar which is full of fruits and veggies that we grow and can. For us its a way of life and we don't fear the rising cost of food because we are able to provide for ourselves. However the whole gun debate doesn't scare us at all. We aren't afraid that someone is coming to take our guns.

Usually I agree with maher, but he is speaking out of his ass on this. If we didn't allow the hunting of deer and coyote, they would be more over populated than they already are.

 "Outdated bs"...I call his statement bs. Stores are filled with nothing but overpriced chemicals. I have fresh chemical free food in my freezer and pantry and I'll keep it that way. Its our way of life and we should be protected to have the right as our constitution supposedly say we have the right.

Coming from a place (Maine) where hunting is a part of life....this is a stupid statement.  I am not a hunter, but I do know that many who hunt, do rely on the meat to fill their freezer and feed their family.  I also know that if it weren't for hunting season......there would be a huge overpopulation of deer in our area.  As much as I dislike hunting, I know it is crucial.

My aunt and uncle had 5 kids in a two bedroom house, they were poor, they hunted to feed their family.  They still do.  They raise their own crops.  My aunt and uncle are only in the late 40's and their youngest child just turned 20.  So people still do actually hunt to feed.  BTW, all their kids are avid hunters as well. 

I am not worried about any gun laws changing.  No one is going to come into my house and take my guns away.  Simply because they (the Goverment) won't put forth the effort to make sure this happens.  They will impose laws, but little will follow them.  Just as they do not follow them now.

Almost everyone I know has a family member that goes hunting.
