The second amendment has nothing to do with hunting BUT the gun grabbers political crony’s absolutely fear the will and voting power of hunters and are well aware that hunters are on all sides of the political spectrum right and left.We are definitely headed toward a leased access hunting model that is mostly affordable to people of means. It has absolutely nothing to do with the second amendment, which would already be gone if it was somehow reliant on hunter numbers (to say nothing of the fact that gun control measures rarely impact actual hunting weapons in any meaningful way). It also isn’t really the European model. It’s the natural endgame of a “free market” model in a country with nearly no sense of community, ecological responsibility, common good, or shared public ownership.
That awareness keeps them in check EVERY single time you here the anti gun politicians talking about gun control measures one of the first things out of their mouth is ... I’m paraphrasing “we aren’t going to affect hunters”.
The free market doesn’t allow the sale of game animals one does not own and the American hunting model which is codified in legal precedents asserts that the game animals are property of the state NOT the land owner. If you doubt this shoot a deer in front of a game warden in July and assert it was on your property so you can do as you please with it.
The land owners when faced with that fact then assert that by leasing they aren’t selling game they are selling access which is BS and everyone honest about it knows that.
I do agree it’s going to happen throughout the country it already has in much of it.
If you are young and love to hunt you better move to a state with lots of federal lands and fight like heck politically to keep the fed and state lands out of the private sectors hands.
