NRA Insults Everyone Who Cares About the Safety of Our State Parks

13 Dec
For once the NRB listened to the citizens. There is a first time for everything.

For once the NRB listened to the citizens. There is a first time for everything.

 

The National Redneck Rifle Association is at it again with their insulting and extremist kill everything agenda. Today they put out a release whining that the Natural Resources Board, who for once listened to the citizens of Wisconsin, and sharply limited the plan to turn all state parks into massive killing grounds. While the plan still allows the trapping sadists to still practice their torture in the parks, they only get one month rather than the seven that the extremists in the DNR proposed. But of course the DNR and NRA are appalled that non-hunting users won’t have to dodge bullets and traps from October to May.

“I don’t feel it will meet the expectations of the Legislature,” said DNR secretary Cathy Stepp.

Well guess what? The Legislature works FOR the citizens, but apparently the Walker regime seems to forget that. Back to the release from the National Redneck Rifle Association. Did you know that anyone who cares about their safety in a state park is a “radical activist?” And they promise that this fight is not over. From their release:

As a result of this egregious action taken by the NRB, hunter access to additional state parks in the fall will be limited to one month (from November 15 – December 15) and from April through the third week of the spring turkey season.  This is a fraction of the increased opportunity intended by the state legislature. The NRB used the baseless claim of protecting public safety to restrict hunter and sportsmen access and opportunity on taxpayer-owned land. The NRA and its members throughout Wisconsin are extremely disappointed in the actions taken by the Natural Resources Board.

This fight is far from over! 

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated about developments related to this issue and upcoming plans to rectify this injustice affecting Wisconsin’s hunting community.

Injustice? Really? Baseless claims? So the vast majority of Wisconsin citizens who do not hunt or trap are expected to dodge bullets and traps for SEVEN months to appease the NRA? So they are all “radical activists?” What is the real injustice here? Keep it up NRA. And they wonder why you get blamed every time there is a mass shooting with extremist attitudes like this?

This is just another example of who is really pulling the strings of the Legislature and the DNR. If it isn’t the bear hounders, it is this kill everything extremist group and others like it. The shameful fact is that the majority of the so-called Democrats voted for this monstrosity in both the Assembly and Senate. Apparently they also do not realize that there are far more non-hunters than hunters in this state. But that is beside the point. Our parks are some of the last mostly protected places for wildlife and humans in this state. Hunters and the sadist trappers have millions of acres to use as their killing fields. Yet they want to take away every last refuge from the rest of us and our wildlife. We cannot allow that to happen. Tell your representatives to listen to the people and stop pandering to extremist groups like the NRA and bear hounders. They are not done and will not rest until they have turned every square inch of land in this state into their killing grounds. Maybe next time the public will pay attention BEFORE it becomes law. Even hunters are talking about how insane this law is. As for the trappers, I really don’t care what they think. Do you think that Walker and the Legislature will stop overreaching with insane bills like this? I don’t either.

    My husband and I each sent several emails prior to the recent hearing. Some went to the DNR Board, but others went to websites of cities and towns adjacent to the state parks where we often camp. We suggested that the loss of income they will suffer if we, our friends, and our camping associates stop coming is probably one good reason they should join us in speaking out against this law. May I suggest that others consider addressing their concerns to the municipalities and Chambers of Commerce near their favorite parks. The business community may need our help to grasp the impact of this law on their economic interests.

    Someone should tell The National Rednecks Association that The Second Amendment guarantees our right to own guns and that we can use those guns in a revolt against the government should it become a tyranny. It does not say we have the right to hunt and trap animals.

    Won’t meet the expectations of the legislature? Considering their expectations have nothing to do with reality or sound wildlife management- let’s let them go back and forth ignoring public safety to pander to the Slob hunters and trappers in Northern Wisconsin……This will be good for us……the extremism will be out for full display……I.m waiting for the Bear Hunters Bitch Scott Suder to introduce leg which would arrest innocent people for stepping in a leghold trap……

      The delegates @ WI Farm Bureau Federation Annual meeting established new policy directives for the organization Dec 3rd @ their annual meeting. Those directives include starting WI bear hunting season Aug 15th (currently starts Sept 7th) & do not want the DNR to trap & relocate bear. Establish a general hunting season & nuisance permits for turkey (I’m not sure what that will mean) Information courtesy of Wisconsin State Farmer Dec 7th edition. The WI Farm bureau seems to have it’s way with legislature along with the NRA & WWF & all the other hunting organizations. Just a heads up…it’s hard to keep up with all of the latest killing agenda proposed by all of these groups. I think it is purposeful. If they keep our heads spinning it is their way of getting things passed before people even are able to take notice.

        They are the most anti-wildlife group in the state. Screw them and their bear hounder buddies. They are right up there with the NRA and Taliban in my book.

      How many more mass shootings are we going to have before people finally tell the NRA to piss off? As a former soldier and someone who worked in the law enforcement field I can tell you that there is ZERO need for a civilian to have access to rapid fire, high capacity assault weapons. What more is it going to take for that disgusting group to be disavowed by law abiding Americans? As far as I am concerned they have about as much standing as the Taliban in my eyes.

      So many people killed senselessly in mass shootings & now these innocent children. The NRA should be held accountable for these assault weapons being legal & available. The NRA rules this country with mafia-like power, influence by intimidation & money. But this morning on one of the news shows it was said 40% of the weapons bought in the USA are purchased @ gun shows with no background checks or waiting periods. Along with a ban on assault weapons there should be a halt to gun shows/sales.

    Please tell me that the NRA will not be included in the discussion when talks begin on the federal level on how to end gun violence. The statement by the NRA should be punctuated with a big “Wah, Wah.” Patricia, keep up the hard work. I for one appreciate all you do.

    I can’t stand the NRA ~ I think (hopefully) people are starting to get the picture.
