    Maybe our most influential below
    The folks below are lefties with a lot of clout out west
    But without doubt the folks with the most money and the most lobbying experience and the ones that are the most effective in advocating for hunters are

    Below are the dirty dozen, the twelve orgs most apposed to hunting. When I see their names on any post on this web site the spit rises up in my mouth. They've done more to harm rural people and hunting than just about anyone I can imagine.

    I too only own bolt guns and a double barrel. I might make snide remarks about semi auto handguns or tupperware plastic guns but I fully support people in their wish to have them. The greatest danger to law abiding gun owners is suicide, and that's an issue they need to deal with themselves. For homicide you have a different demographic.

    The overwhelming number of gun victims are young, male, minority, and live in the center of a large city. I  value their lives,  and would support any effort to end the overwhelming toll on them and their families. They need a police system they can rely on, a way to make a good middle class wage no matter their education or prior convictions, and a general fair shake at life that they are denied by our society.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?
