Airlines Announce They’ll Discriminate Against Law-Abiding Hunters

posted on August 5, 2015

In a politically correct overreaction, three major airlines have launched a full-scale assault on law-abiding hunters by refusing to ship legally taken hunting trophies from Africa to the Unites States.

Delta, American and United airlines, listening to public outcry over the possibly illegal killing of “Cecil” by an American dentist, have announced they will no longer transport buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion or rhino trophies, even though it is legal to hunt many of those species in some African countries. Since strict customs laws make shipping of poached trophies extremely difficult, only law-abiding hunters will be affected by the ban. 

In truth, banning transport of legally taken trophies is nothing more than a blatant case of big companies discriminating against a minority group of customers with no just cause. If these airlines truly oppose legal hunting in Africa, they should just say so. That way, millions of American hunters can make other airline transportation arrangements for their future travels.
