Loony Leftists Want NRA Labeled a “Domestic Terrorist Group”–Over Hunting

 Another of the many ridiculous petitions posted at the White House website seeks to have pro-hunting groups classified as “domestic terrorist groups.” Apparently, it hasn’t occurred to these geniuses that if these groups actually wanted what they claim is their goal–hunting animals “to the brink of extinction”–there wouldn’t be anything left for them to hunt.

Nobody ever claimed that leftists were intelligent…

Online Petition Wants NRA, RMEF and SCI Declared “Domestic Terrorist Groups”

 An online petition is asking the White House to label the National Rifle Association (NRA), Safari Club International (SCI), Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) and other sportsmen’s organizations “domestic terrorist groups.”
 
The petition, created on November 20 on the White House’s petitions portal We the People, accuses the “anti-predatory animal organizations” of “decimating predators to the brink of extinction.” Specifically, the petition states:

 Groups like Lobo Watch, Big Game Forever, Idaho Anti-Wolf Coalition, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, NRA, Safari Club, etc., are a menace in our midst. Not only do many of them want our native predators like bears, wolves, wild cats, and the like decimated to the brink of extinction, but some of them have the nerve to harass, threaten, and downright intimidate anyone who dares to oppose them, even the government. And they’ve got some powerful people in their corner, too. They throw their mammoth monetary weight around, and think they can buy their way into power in America and put down anyone who’s got a backbone and might provide resistance. It’s time to put these groups in their place and strike them down. Time to protect our carnivorous wildlife from those who seek to decimate them!

 The petition has been called “loony” and “ridiculous” by the organizations it seeks to defame.
 
“It’s a stupid petition. Plain and simple. But, it does give hunters insight into the mindset of the anti-hunting extremists and the extent that are willing to go to in their determined effort to dismantle our hunting heritage,”  says J.R. Robbins, managing editor of NRAhuntersrights.org. “There is in fact no single group that has done more for wildlife in this country than hunters. We pay for wildlife conservation through the licenses, permits, and stamps we buy. If hunting were banned, as these radicals want, where would the funding come from for habitat work? Land acquistion? Predator and disease control? Research? Wildlife management is a science in which hunters and fishermen pay a key role–and pay to do so.”

    It’s not a matter of “intelligence.”

    They are throwing everything they can at the wall to see what will stick. If they get a successful court case, they win. If they mobilize a few people or get some contributions, they win—even if they lose, this time. If they manage to pollute a few people’s minds, they win—even if they lose this time.

    This sort of “failing upward” by throwing everything out there and then expanding a little after each win is how the gay-rights movement went from being a marginal ragtag 40 years to being poised now to use the Supreme Court to destroy the First and Tenth Amendments.

    @ 1 buzzsawmonkey: Sounds trues. The right needs to start fighting back and throw up their own petitions against this group. Dilute the Whitehouse down.

    Tne NRA needs to make a large gun safety marketing approach. Or they are going to get alinskied.
