During Deer Hunting “Errant Bullets Being Discharged in the Forest”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The author of a Letter to the Editor rebuttal about how Maine tradition has included taking your children with you to go deer hunting, asks immediately, “Has the world gone completely mad?”

I would have to say it has after reading this ignorant, emotional claptrap: “How can anyone justify exposing a 7-month-old baby to the inherent dangers of errant bullets being discharged in the forest during prime hunting season?”

I am 66 years of age. I began following my father around in the woods during hunting season, sometimes I’m sure he did want me crashing through the leaves behind him, and I’ve never witnessed “errant bullets being discharged” while in the woods. It’s not something that happens but extremely rarely.

And yet the same sniveling whiners think nothing of strapping a newborn baby into a car seat and heading to the mall. Surely there is more risk in a car than from so-imagined “errant bullets.”

Or perhaps this brain-poisoned automaton would prefer that the children stay home and become mind controlled from filthy, disgusting movies, music, video games, cell phones, Facebook, and the like. Perhaps she would prefer propping the child up in front of the technological device and watching Disney’s new movie that shows one princess looking to kill another “rival” princess with broken glass. There’s also the myriad available violence-laced video games that teach children how to fire “errant bullets” and kill innocent people all in the name of entertainment.

Maybe the author prefers that at 7 months of age the parent begins teaching their child how to become a homosexual, a transgender, a lesbian, a queer, bisexual, or the benefits of smoking dope or doing meth at a young age. God only knows we can’t take any other far-out risk of exposing our child to “errant bullets.”

“Has the world gone completely mad?” Absolutely, and this author is proof of it. The world is insane. Priorities are askew. Values have all gone away. Morals are missing.
