Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- An overwhelming majority of Texans voted to approve NRA-backed Proposition 6 today and established a constitutional right to hunt and fish.

“Proposition 6 ensures that wildlife conservation and management decisions are based on sound science so the proud outdoor heritage of Texas will be preserved for generations to come,” said Chris Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The NRA is proud to have led this fight to protect sportsmen and conservationists throughout the state from future attacks by well-funded, anti-hunting campaigns. On behalf of the 5 million members of the NRA, I want to thank State Sen. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe) and State Rep. Trent Ashby (R-Lufkin) for their leadership on this amendment.”

Hunters and anglers annually spend $4.1 billion and support nearly 66,000 jobs in Texas. Thanks to their interest in the great outdoors, hunters, anglers and target shooters contributed more than $54 million dollars to conservation projects in the past year.

Texas is the 19th state to pass a constitutional amendment protecting the right to hunt and fish. ​

The hard-left Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the MSM media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States.. Second Amendment foes lying about gun control – The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with personal self-defense.Firearms are our constitutionally mandated safeguard against tyranny by a powerful federal government. Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control. No matter what any… Read more »
