Title: US hunters begin boycott over Colorado gun laws
Post by: Big58cal on March 27, 2013, 01:15:20 PM
MagPul is leaving Colorado because of the new gun laws and now this.  Got a feeling the Democrats in the legislature are going to be looking over their shoulders quite a bit by this time next year.  ;D
 

US hunters begin boycott over Colorado gun laws
 
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) Hunters across the United States are boycotting Colorado because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence.

Michael Bane, a producer for The Outdoor Channel, announced he will no longer film his four shows in Colorado, and hunters are joining the protests.

Hunting outfitters say people began cancelling trips after the legislation passed, the Colorado Springs Gazette reported (http://tinyurl.com/cfbquoy (http://tinyurl.com/cfbquoy) ). The numbers are few, but growing.

You hate to do it, but it needs to be done. The idiot outdoor writer in Denver seems to think it will help the hunters in state have more success due to less competition. That stupid and idiotic statement proves beyond any doubt the ALL members of the news media are total twits and morons.

I guess he forgot that funding wildlife comes largely from hunters tax dollars spent on license and ammo, not to mention the ancillary effect it will have on Colorado sporting goods retailers, restaurants, motels, convenience stores etc.

Yeah, this fall will probably be pretty good for the residents, but by next year I'm sure it's not going to be looking too hot around there.
