Anti-Hunting Bill Advancing in North Carolina

Friday, August 7, 2009

Please Contact Your State Representative Today!

Senate Bill 460—the anti-dog breeder, anti-hunting bill promoted by the radical Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)—passed the Senate on Wednesday, on a narrow 23-22 vote.  The legislation is now in the House, where it was quickly forced through the Committee on Commerce, Small Business, and Entrepreneurship.  The bill is now scheduled for a hearing on Monday in the House Fiscal Committee.

Please contact members of that committee and urge them to oppose S 460.  Please click here to contact the members of the House Fiscal Committee.

HSUS will use this bill, should it pass, as a template for future legislative efforts in order to achieve its true goal—eliminating ALL commercial dog breeders.  HSUS as much as admits this is its goal through its own words.  The group has publicly stated, “There’s no reason for anyone to patronize a pet store or a breeder.”  Clearly, if there is “no reason for anyone to patronize…a breeder,” there must be no reason for there to be ANY breeders, in the world HSUS would like to see.  That would be disastrous for people who use dogs while hunting.

HSUS and its supporters have even added language they claim protects people who use dogs for hunting.  But that is another case of misdirection.  The language they point to spells out that dog kennels and other “establishments operated for the purpose of boarding or training hunting…dogs” are exempted from this legislation.  The fact is, they always were exempt.  People who breed dogs suitable for hunting uses, however, are not exempt.  Passage of this bill will directly impact them, will likely drive some out of the business, and will inevitably lead to fewer hunting dogs being available.  This, in turn, will drive up the cost of these dogs, which will lead to fewer people being able to afford to hunt with dogs.  Again, that is one of the real goals of S 460.

NRA will continue to work to oppose the HSUS agenda, and will continue to oppose S 460 in the House.  Please contact your State Representative, especially if he or she is a member of the Finance Committee, and respectfully urge him or her to oppose S 460.
