Amendments Attacking Pennsylvania’s Sporting Tradition Could be Voted on in the State House!

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

Please Contact Your State Representative IMMEDIATELY!

Animal “rights” activists have once again talked state Representative John Maher (R-40) into sponsoring two amendments that would put an end to organized bird shoots in Pennsylvania.  These amendments to Senate Bill 71 are scheduled to be voted on TODAY.

Organized bird shooting is a traditional international shooting sport widely practiced in more than thirty-five states across the nation, not just in Pennsylvania as opponents falsely claim.  For over a century, shoots have been held in Pennsylvania by law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts.

Radical national animal “rights" groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), have organized and funded efforts in Pennsylvania and around the country to ban this longstanding traditional shooting sport.  Extremist animal “rights” groups seem to envision a future where all of the shooting sports are banned.  Here are a few examples of HSUS activities: 

* Led a 2006 ballot campaign to ban dove hunting in Michigan (contributing $1.6

   million to the effort).

* Funded a ballot initiative in 2004 to ban traditional bear hunting in Maine.

* Successfully lobbied for the cancellation of the 2006 New Jersey black bear hunt.

* Opposed hunting on National Wildlife Refuges.

* Opposed state pheasant stocking programs in Pennsylvania and across the country.

Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow supporters of Pennsylvania’s sporting traditions.  Urge them to also call their state Representative to help put a stop to animal “rights” activists, because they won’t stop until all sporting traditions have been banned in Pennsylvania.
