      Since all of these bills were sponsored by Republicans…I surmise the Governor who is a Democrat will thumb his nose at these bills…You’d think that since Democrats own more guns than Republicans they would support such legislation…But then again…The people don’t get to vote on such gun issue’s…The Governor trumps the will of the people!

      Hunting with dogs? Whatever happened to ethical fair chase hunting? Backward country bumpkins and their “field trials”(all laugh here)
