Mississippi: Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment Needs Your Help!

Friday, March 30, 2012

Yesterday, the Senate Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks Committee unanimously reported out House Concurrent Resolution 30, the NRA-backed Right to Hunt and Fish constitutional amendment that would appear on the 2014 ballot, sending it to the full Senate for consideration.  HCR 30 would provide meaningful protections against the anti-hunting extremists who seek to ban all hunting in America.

The state Senate must vote on this measure by April 12, and it requires a minimum of 2/3 vote for passage.  Please contact your state Senator as soon as possible and urge him or her to support HCR 30 with no amendments.  To find your state Senator and their contact information please click here.

This language of the amendment is as follows:

"Section 12A.  The people have the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife, including by the use of traditional methods, subject only to laws and regulations that promote wildlife conservation and management and that preserve the future of hunting and fishing, as the Legislature may prescribe by general law.  Public hunting and fishing shall be a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife.  This section may not be construed to modify any provision of law relating to trespass, property rights, the regulation of commercial activities or the maintenance of levees pursuant to Article 11."

Special thanks go to The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries & Parks, which testified along with NRA-ILA in support of this legislation.
