Hunters will love it. But Obama? Not so much.
Further proof the Obama years have come to an end? Hunting on public land!
Yesterday, President Donald Trump signed into law House Joint Resolution 69 (H.J. Res. 69), nullifying a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) rule that prohibited forms of hunting on all National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska and interfered with Alaska’s ability to manage its wildlife. The Senate and House previously passed the resolution with votes of 52 to 47 and 225 to 193.

And some of the Liberals are going to call this ‘extreme’. It isn’t. In fact, it’s DEEPLY ingrained in our history.
Remember our Huntress story from earlier this week? The one about hunting in England? If you missed it, you should read that next. It’s worth it.
Here’s a little history our Liberal friends will have forgotten if they ever knew it.
In the English-speaking world, our freedoms, and the limitations of a leader’s power over us —
to say, falsely imprison someone, or secretly gather information about a private citizen for political purposes — is traced back to the Magna Carta and it’s close cousin, the Forest Charter.
The Magna Carta gave us such innovations as:
No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land. To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice. – See more here.
Maybe liberals ought to get familiar with it.
The OTHER royal excess that was severely curbed was the expansive amount of land in the nation that was called Royal property (‘the King’s Forest) with the king having exclusive usage rights.
In John’s reign, roughly a third of the country was royal forest, and the penalties imposed for forest offences were a major source of revenue for the king. One aim of the Forest Charter was to reduce the area of the royal forest by removing everything which King Henry II (chiefly blamed for the forest’s vast extent) had placed within it. The Charter also banned capital punishments for forest offences (such as poaching and hunting the protected deer), and exempted those having woods within the forest from fines for erecting buildings and creating new arable land. – See more here.
So… President Obama represented a return to life BEFORE the rights and freedoms the English-speaking world has enjoyed for about a thousand years.
And President Trump represents an END to that stupid trend.
So grab your gun and go enjoy that freedom! It’s your American birthright.
