Rhode Island Anti-Disabled Hunter Bill On The Fast Track!

Friday, June 9, 2006


 

Please Contact Your Legislators Today!

H 8171, sponsored by State Representative Raymond Church, will be up for consideration tomorrow in the House Environment and Natural Resources Committee. 

 

Under the guise of attempting to ban "internet hunting," this bill could outlaw future firearm technologies and the type of remote control hunting commonly practiced by the severely disabled.  If that were not enough, H 8171 would require disabled persons to obtain a special license allowing them to use "remote" technology for hunting. To do so, they would have to prove to the state in person that they are in fact disabled with the possibility that the state can force them to get proof from a physician at their own expense.  Then, after going through all of that, the state "may" issue the permit to the disabled hunter.

 

Make no mistake, H 8171 is model legislation from PETA and the

Humane Society of the United States.

 

We ask you to stand with the severely disabled hunter to protect his rights to go afield.   Please do not let them deprive the disabled of this avenue because of their own selfish political purposes.

 

This bill is being "fast-tracked," so please call your state legislators TODAY at (401) 222-2000 and ask them to VOTE NO on H 8171, the "CHURCH ANTI-DISABLED HUNTER BILL!"
