Hunters have been called murderers, barbarians, cowards and a few things you would not want repeated in front of your mother, and now they can add being compared to a terrorist. It is always educational to let anti-hunters speak.
Ahhhh, I don't see that Frances Wood actually compared hunters to terrorists.
She did use a non-sequitur in this part of his screed, which doesn't make any sense. And her "sniper" description is truly absurd.
But I just don't see the "compared" charge sticking.
As I write this, I’m reminded of the tragedy of 9/11 when the United States was attacked in a new way and many of us felt our homeland being gravely wounded. My sons live in New York, and one of them watched the towers collapse. Since that life-changing day, our government has spent billions to bring back a sense of security, give us back our homeland.
Here on Whidbey, we enjoy a rich and peaceful homeland and a precious sense of personal security. Yet, beginning next month, we will knowingly allow snipers to fire holes into our homeland.
At Deer Lagoon, a few hunters — an informal count indicates there are four or five regulars — will disturb the quiet lives of those who live nearby and unwittingly disrupt some of the richest bird habitat in our county.
During duck-hunting season, it’s not just the ducks that die.
