NC adds right to hunt to constitution

Postby mrburneisen » Tue Dec 04, 2018 2:43 pm

Congratulations to NC for adding the right to hunt and fish to the state constitution. Bonus points for including traditional methods in the wording. Doesn't get any more traditional than hunting bears with dogs in the same mountains roamed by Daniel Boone.

"Sec. 38. Right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife. The right of the people to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife is a valued part of the State's heritage and shall be forever preserved for the public good. The people have a right, including the right to use traditional methods, to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife, subject only to laws enacted by the General Assembly and rules adopted pursuant to authority granted by the General Assembly to (i) promote wildlife conservation and management and (ii) preserve the future of hunting and fishing. Public hunting and fishing shall be a preferred means of managing and controlling wildlife. Nothing herein shall be construed to modify any provision of law relating to trespass, property rights, or eminent domain."

Wow! That is the most encouraging thing I have read in a very long time. It gives me hope.

Thankyou for sharing that.

“Shall be forever preserved...”

Wow. Poetry and music to my ears.

I had to go and check these news on several sites to actually start believing it.
With the onslaught on gun rights that's been gaining momentum these days, even after Trump was elected, it's nice to see that there's still a constitutional stronghold of the Second Amendment somewhere.

Well, if the liberals don't make us hunt with crossbows, that is.
