This kind of dumb legislation could be introduced in your state

Anti-Dove Hunting Bill Introduced in Iowa

Just two years after establishing a dove hunting season, Iowa sportsmen again find themselves facing its threatened closure.  Animal rights and anti-hunting groups, upset over the newly created season, are pushing Iowa House File 291, sponsored by Representative Mary Mascher (D-Iowa City).  The measure would ban mourning dove hunting in the state by removing them as a game bird from state law.

“Anti-hunting organizations have not given up their fight to ban dove hunting,” said Evan Heusinkveld, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance director of government affairs. “Iowa sportsmen must contact their state representatives in opposition to this hunting ban.”

Imagine that. Iowa of all places, where hunting is a treasured tradition.
