Wondering if the administration is "against senseless violence and slaughter, or it isn't," People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is making an 11th hour pitch to President Obama to include a hunting ban in his gun control measures to be unveiled Wednesday.

"Americans' views are evolving on many issues, from same-sex marriage to gun control, and the time is right to reconsider the dangerous message that the practice of killing animals for fun is acceptable and should even be protected," Tracy Reiman, PETA's executive vice president said in a letter to Obama.
 
The animal rights group is angered that Vice President Biden has been calling hunting "responsible" gun ownership.
 
"As the mother of a child in elementary school, I cannot imagine telling my son that killing for fun is wrong when the victim is a human but perfectly acceptable when the target is a member of another species, say, a deer or a dove," wrote Tracy Reiman in the letter. "Children must be taught that all gun violence is wrong, no matter how different from them the victim appears to be."

First thing, that Tracy broad ( she's not smart enough to be labeled a lady) is a knucklehead.

Secondly, PETA stinks and they never quit.

Third, it's a pleasant surprise, our VP actually saying something positive about guns and hunting. Perhaps it was accidental, but it is in the right direction.

Obama voted against pro hunting measures when he was in Illinois.
