Introducing NRAHunting.com, the initiative to save hunting from those who place more value on animals than humans … especially if those humans hunt.
This feature appears in the June ‘17 issue of NRA America’s 1st Freedom, one of the official journals of the National Rifle Association.
Hunting is under attack—not from professional wildlife biologists, government bureaucracies or anti-gun politicians, but from a vocal and increasingly violent minority that believes that animals have human rights, that there are far too many people on the planet, and that intimidation and terrorism are acceptable tactics. They shame big-game hunters into hiding and intimidate airlines from shipping trophy animals; they have crippled Sea World and ran the circus out of town.
They show no respect for decency: They target children with their propaganda, distributing comic books that ask, “Why is Your Daddy a Killer?” They stage salacious nude celebrity ad campaigns, and they bully and threaten anyone wearing leather or fur with mayhem and bodily harm.
Their goal is to end hunting in all its forms—forever, in our lifetime. They go by names like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the Humane Society of the U.S. and the Animal Liberation Front. Some, like Earth First, are so violent that the FBI labels them terrorist organizations.
Their goal is to end hunting in all its forms—forever, in our lifetime.
Coinciding with the creation of the Hunters’ Leadership Forum, the NRA has launched a new initiative to save hunters and hunting from those bent on destroying them. NRAHunting.com proudly tells the truth about humans as hunters; how hunting is essential to who we are as a species; how the human race owes its very existence to hunting; how the very first human art on record was inspired by hunting. All the earth’s animals fall into one of two categories: hunter or prey. The fact that humans are meant to be hunters is as plain as the placement of our eyes in our craniums.
Go to NRAHunting.com to join some of the nation’s finest outdoor writers as they delve deep into our predator nature, from the first humans to today’s skilled stalkers. Lose yourself in soaring videos that celebrate the sweeping scope and grandeur of the hunt. Find out who the enemies of hunting really are, how they’re funded and to what lengths they will go to impose their perverted version of nature (“A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy”) on the rest of us.
Join NRAHunting.com to preserve all that which is sacred and essential to the human race—so that they can be safely passed on to our children, and theirs.
