Thread Name: Guns and hunting
Subject: RE: Guns and hunting
IMHOP: Here in Maryland and Virginia, USA, when we license people to drive we attempt to educate them through driver training.

Would anyone here object to Shooting Safety Training being mandatory for first time hunting licenses? Retraining every 4(?) years?

I would also recommend "Don't Drink and Hunt" campaigns.

I don't own any guns and I eat fish only. But this is not moral superiority or ennobling, only my preference. A Zen teacher of mine has said: "It is not what you eat, but eating mindfully that is important." In other words, do not kill or eat carelessly, but mindfully. Who among you does not eat?

Have a safe Holiday season. Regards, Fortunato.
