I can say what I like,thankyou...it would appear from your facebook page that you love to kill, maim and hunt animals. I don't care that you grew up with it at all, it just shows how common and naive you are? My father taught me to shoot but I never killed animals! Your sort, would pee your pants if hunted,and beg for mercy...why don't you try it? I am not the hypocrite...guess you should look in the mirror.

Why are you attacking me? Do you want to push people who have similar mindset as you away? I've never stated this before in any other petition. I've signed many petitions. You don't need a word processor to see that there's incomplete sentences all over the place in this document. It looks very unprofessional.

I mean I agree with this in theory and I feel like it most places there is absolutely no need for it but there are still people in remote areas of alaska and the north west that rely on hunting as a means of a survival, they don't hunt they don't eat, now whether or not you agree with it is a different story but this cannot work at least without some exemptions.

I agree with that. In some areas of indigenous people, it is still a necessity of life. This petition is not targeting them. For they do not call themselves "sportsmen"

i dont see anywhere that there are any exemptions it appears that this is a petition to make hunting illegal in general, just because they said hunters or "sportsmen" it didnt say anything about only making hunting for sport illegal

This is only a first step... to show our numbers frankly, let them see how many people do not agree with what is being done in our world. when you come right down to actually creating Bills and laws to be signed, that is when you get to do the exceptions.

In this day in age of grocery stores. Why hunt poor defenseless animal? It makes no sense! Then you turn around and teach your sons this! Redelicious false passage into manhood! No! This must end now!

Right! Grocery stores...but the meat you eat from the store probably lived a life of hell before it ended up hanging from a hook in a slauterhouse! Have you seen how the poor animals are treated in there? That doesn't mean that I think hunting is right! I don't. But we do have to figure out how to treat these poor creatures humanely!

Yes people, let's eliminate hunting so that all animal populations can grow grossly out of proportion. Then, these animals will only have to worry about outgrowing where they can live( they will now reside in your yard and on our streets) and they will run out of food, because there is nothing to keep their population in check. So, now they can be killed by cars(resulting in billions of $'s in insurance claims and human deaths) and they will starve to death(which is much more humane)....

Wow, I don't believe it someone with some common sense posted in this section. I don't hunt myself but I do know it is a vital factor in this society. I am however an avid fisherman and if I catch it I eat it. For those here that think hunters go out and kill something for the fun of it, haven't been hunting much. Deer season is in the Winter and most hunter sit in a deer stand in the freezing cold and hope that a deer will come along so they can get a clear shot and more then one meal. Many...

Many people like deer meat over beef and you can't buy it in the market. The next thing you know every vegan in the country will want us to stop raising cattle, pig, chickens, sheep or any other animal. Man is a carnivore and as time has gone his teeth and body have conformed to the difference in diet just like other animals have evolved to their environments.

Hit the nail right on the head, James. This is why far-reaching decisions have to be based on logic, not emotion. Some days I wish someone had smacked Walt Disney right upside the head the day he approved the script for "Bambi".

Typical that those who call for a ban on hunting fail to even remotely understand the realities of conservation and wildlife management. You think hunting is cruel? Well, how about starvation? Disease? These are the realities of wildlife overpopulation. Humans, despite the rather simplistic viewpoint expressed by the poster previous, does not have a "right" to control overpopulation of wildlife. In fact, we have a RESPONSIBILITY to do so.

I am in complete agreement with you Dale.. The Petition asserts the following.. "For without man's interference, nature takes care of itself." Whether we hunt or not, we interfere with nature by our very presence.. We make farmland out of forest, making an ideal if not unnatural environment for deer. Our cities and suburbs are fantastic habitat for racoons, opossums and even coyote. Our ships bring invasive species of plants and fish in their ballast. To ignore our impact and let these species grow unchecked, is Irresponsible.

And here is an interesting study on the correlation between children hunting and violence.... Does Teaching Kids to Hunt Make Them Violent?
By Martha Rosenberg
24 March 2009

March was a bloody month for the gun lobby starting with the Alabama, Illinois church and Germany shootings and ended with the Oakland police killings this week.

And that's before the Miami mass killings, the Turlock, California church shootings and the Mexico shootings--also in March--which the public has largely ignored.

- Michael McLendon, the Alabama shooter who killed his mother, grandmother, uncle, two cousins and the wife and toddler daughter of a sheriff's deputy in Samson in March--also killing his mother's dogs and setting the house on fire--is a case in point.
McLendon, who had a cache of an M-16, an AK-47, a shotgun, two pistols and a "great amount of ammunition," started hunting when he was 11-years-old.

- Illinois shooter Terry Sedlacek who killed a pastor through the Bible he held at a church service in Maryville in March was also a hunting enthusiast who probably started young.

- Law makers might not be asking the question if it weren't for Jordan Brown of Wampum, Pennsylvania. The 11-year-old shot and killed his father's pregnant fiancée, Benzie Houk, in February with a 20-gauge shotgun his dad had given him for Christmas.
Police reports describe the family as "hunting enthusiasts" who encouraged the 11-year-old to participate in bloodsports including Houk, his stepmother-to-be and eventual victim.

- The incident came just a year after an eight-year-old St. Johns, Arizona boy-- now nine--shot and killed his father, Vincent Romero, and his father's friend, Timothy Romans, with a .22-caliber rifle.
Romera also taught his son to hunt, showing and encouraging the little boy to kill prairie dogs according to the Very Rev. John Paul Sauter of St. Johns Catholic Church. Nor did the eight-year-old have trouble reloading after each shot when he killed the two adults.

- Hunting teaches children to sever their natural empathy and connection with other living things, say child development experts.

- It teaches them it is okay to harm something which is not harming or bothering them and acclimates them to witnessing--never mind causing--the bleeding, agony and vocalizations that accompany death.

So many sadistic killers begin with sadistic treatment of animals, criminologists and law enforcement experts consider it a behavioral predictor.

Like many states, Pennsylvania and Arizona have National Rifle Association backed "mentored youth hunting programs" that encourage children under 12 to hunt with adults. While less than ten percent of the US population hunts--a number that is falling every day--zealots push child hunting to keep the sport from dying out and revenue coming to state departments of natural resources in the form of hunting licenses.

In some states children are encouraged to shoot tame pheasants the state has hatched and grown at taxpayer expense. Video of the sure shots from birds that can hardly fly and, in some cases, hardly see--they're fitted with blinding devices to keep them from pecking in packed pens--is banned. In other states, children are encouraged to raise day old pheasant chicks like pets for others to hunt.

Child hunters like Jordan Brown and young Romero were told it is good, clean family fun.

Let;s also take a look at our wonderfully fantastic "Wildlife Agency"

Animal torture, abuse called a 'regular practice' within federal wildlife agency

It was a productive day for Gary Strader when he pulled his vehicle up to a remote site in northeast Nevada and found nine coyotes caught in leg hold snares set by the federal government. As was routine, Strader, a former trapper with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, signaled his dogs to attack.

It was a productive day for Gary Strader when he pulled his vehicle up to a remote site in northeast Nevada and found nine coyotes caught in leg hold snares set by the federal government. As was routine, Strader, a former trapper with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, signaled his dogs to attack.

His supervisor, who had accompanied him that day, watched and laughed as the dogs circled the coyotes and ripped into them, Strader recalled.

"That was regular practice," said Strader, who in 2009 left Wildlife Services, a little-known program within the USDA. The program is tasked with humanely killing wildlife seen as a threat to the environment and livestock, as well as protecting the public from wildlife hazards to commercial planes at airports.

"You let your dogs fight with them. That was part of the job," said Strader. "There's not a person in Wildlife Services who is not aware of it."

The brutal approach by Wildlife Services is part of a culture of animal cruelty that has long persisted within an agency that uses taxpayer money to wage an unnecessary war on wildlife, according to two U.S. congressmen who have repeatedly called for a thorough investigation

MANY CAUSE MUCH SUFFERING TO ANIMALS DUE TO BAD SHOTS. NOT ABOUT CONSERVATION, THAT'S JUST AN EXCUSE TO HUNT. NOT SURE WHY THEY CALL IT HUNTING EITHER, CAUSE MANY SIT IN THEIR FUCKING DEER STANDS. MANY BREAK THE RULES TOO.
