Why in the Hell Are We Voting on This?

More amendments to our dippy State Constitution of 1901, the longest of all the 5o states.  In my opinion, this is "feel good" legislation or kowtowing to the N.R.A.

Crap!

Statewide Amendment 5
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to amend Amendment 597, now appearing as Section 36.02 of the Official Recompilation of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, as amended, to clarify that the people have the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife subject to reasonable regulations that promote conservation and management of fish and wildlife and preserve the future of hunting and fishing. (Proposed by Act 2014-286)
Yes ( )
No ( )

Amendment 5 proposes an amendment known as the “Sportsperson’s Bill of Rights.” If Amendment 5 IS PASSED, it would clarify that the people of Alabama have the right to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife, including the use of traditional methods. This right would be subject to reasonable regulations to conserve wildlife and preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Amendment 5 would not affect current laws relating to eminent domain, trespass, or property rights. It would also make hunting and fishing by the public the preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife in Alabama.
If Amendment 5 IS DEFEATED, the people of Alabama would still have the right to hunt and fish using traditional methods, but that right may be limited by existing or future laws and regulations. Also, the State Constitution would not state that hunting and fishing by the public is the preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife in Alabama.
No source of funding is required for this law.
The measure will have no impact on taxes.
The Constitutional authority for passage of this Amendment is set forth in Sections 284, 285, and 287 of the Constitution of Alabama of 1901. These sections outline the way a constitutional amendment may be put to the people of the State for a vote.

  1. Isn't the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution enough?

  2. It doesn't sound like any thing over what people will do anyway. Are hunters that scared that hunting will be done away with?

  5. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
