Nebraska: Reading of Constitutional Right to Hunt and Fish Postponed

Friday, March 2, 2012

Due to an overwhelming number of bills scheduled to be heard in the Nebraska Legislature yesterday, the final reading for Legislative Resolution 40CA was postponed until next week.  This much-needed constitutional amendment would provide truly meaningful protections against anti-hunting activists who seek to ban all hunting in America, enshrining hunting and fishing in the Nebraska Constitution. 

LR 40CA would guarantee that these hunting and fishing rights are subject only to laws, rules and regulations that promote “wildlife conservation and management and that preserve the future of hunting and fishing.”  Specifically, it would prohibit regulations that would ban the use of “traditional methods” such as bow hunting or the sustainable taking of wildlife such as deer, elk and doves.  LR 40CA would protect the citizens’ hunting heritage from attacks initiated by well-funded anti-hunting extremists who have assailed sportsmen throughout the country in recent years.  In addition, it specifies that hunting, fishing and harvesting of wildlife shall be used as a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. This constitutional amendment would ensure that sportsmen will continue to be used as the state’s responsible game managers instead of the taxpayer-funded sharpshooters and unproven, expensive wildlife contraception schemes employed in other jurisdictions.

This issue has been up for debate for more than a year now and we are close to ensuring hunting and fishing rights for future generations of Cornhuskers!

Please contact your state Senator TODAY and respectfully urge him or her to support LR 40CA.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
