Arkansas Right to Hunt and Fish Resolution Needs Your Help Today!

Monday, March 19, 2007

 

Hearing scheduled for Wednesday, March 21!

 

The Joint Committee on Constitutional Amendments is holding a hearing scheduled for Wednesday, March 21 at 3:30 PM, or upon adjournment of both legislative chambers, in Room 151 at the State Capitol, Little Rock.  Please make plans to attend this important hearing.  If you cannot attend, please call the members of the Joint Committee on Constitutional Amendments listed below and urge them to support SJR 7.

 

Senate Joint Resolution 7 (SJR 7) -- the NRA-backed Constitutional Amendment sponsored by State Senator Steve Faris (D-27) that would recognize hunting and fishing as constitutional rights, is facing its toughest test. 

 

In order for SJR 7 to succeed, it must be one of three Constitutional Amendments proposed by the Arkansas General Assembly.  As there are numerous amendments that may be considered, coupled with the fact that there has been some aggressive opposition to this critical amendment, it is vital that those who support our hunting and fishing heritage contact members of the Joint Committee on Constitutional Amendments and urge them to ensure SJR 7 is one of the three Constitutional Amendments proposed by the Arkansas General Assembly.

While opponents to SJR 7 have made outrageous claims about what it will do, this proposed Amendment will simply protect regulated hunting and fishing for future generations by recognizing them as protected rights and defining them as preferred methods for managing non-threatened wildlife.  Attacks on our outdoor heritage from well-funded animal rights extremists will continue, so passage of this amendment is critical if we are to protect hunting and fishing for future generations! 

 

There are only two likely reasons lawmakers may have to not support SJR 7.  Either they feel other Amendments are more important to support right now, or they agree with the Arkansas State Game and Fish Commission's view that hunting and fishing should be considered privileges, subject to any number of possible restrictions or prohibitions.  Please urge members of the Joint Committee on Constitutional Amendments to consider SJR 7 a top priority, support its goal of recognizing our right to hunt and fish, and ensure it is one of the Constitutional Amendments proposed by the Arkansas General Assembly this year!

 

Again, please attend this important hearing on Wednesday, March 21 at 3:30 PM or upon adjournment of both legislative chambers, in Room 151 at the State Capitol, Little Rock. 

If you cannot attend please contact the members of the Joint Committee on Constitutional Amendments, which is listed below along with their contact information. 

 

Please contact the House members first and urge them to support and pass SJR 7 and then call the Senate members and thank them for voting for SJR 7 already and to please continue that support.
