Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendments Will be on the Ballot in Idaho, Nebraska and Kentucky this November!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association's effort to preserve hunting and fishing for future generations has moved forward into Idaho and Nebraska.  Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendments will be on the ballot in Idaho, Nebraska and Kentucky this November.  The Kentucky Legislature passed an Amendment last year.

The NRA has led efforts to provide these truly meaningful constitutional protections for sportsmen across the country by preserving science-driven wildlife management and the North American Wildlife Conservation Model.  The amendments offer specific defenses against efforts to incrementally destroy our hunting heritage by anti-hunting extremist organizations such as The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).  Nearly one-quarter of all states have adopted similar amendments.  

"Hunting, fishing, and harvesting of wildlife are part of the American fabric," said Chris W. Cox, executive director for NRA's Institute for Legislative Action.  "These constitutional amendments are a concerted effort by the NRA to help preserve America's rich hunting heritage that is increasingly under attack by well organized and well funded anti-hunting radicals.  The stakes have never been higher.  Voters in Idaho, Nebraska and Kentucky must go to the polls and vote to support our outdoor heritage."

In Idaho, House Joint Resolution 2a, the Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment, passed with overwhelming support in the state Senate by a 31 to 3 vote and in the state House by a 63 to 4 vote.  It will now be on the November ballot.

The Nebraska Legislature passed Legislative Resolution 40CA, the Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment, by a 41 to 3 vote.  This amendment will be on the ballot this November.

Last year, the Kentucky Legislature passed House Bill 1, the Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment.  This amendment will also be on the ballot in November. 

Mississippi is currently considering House Concurrent Resolution 30, the Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment.  The NRA is working closely with legislators to pass this critical protection for Mississippi sportsmen this year.
