TYPE : AMENDMENT

ORIGIN: TEXAS LEGISLATURE

TOPIC: HUNTING & FISHING

TEXANS ANSWERED THE CALL

On November 3, 2015 Texans came out in force to overwhelmingly vote in favor of Proposition 6. The amendment to the constitution has secured our right to hunt and fish in Texas and gives us the power to guard against anti-hunting groups, animal rights groups and any others who may surface and want to take this right from us. Texas now becomes the 19th state in the country to amend the constitution and secure our hunting heritage for generations to come. If you voted, thank you; if you didn’t vote or if you were just not sure what it was all about it can be summed up like this. Before the vote, you as a citizen of Texas were able to hunt and fish as a “Privilege”. This privilege could technically have been taken from us with a strong federal court effort backed by anti-hunting and animal rights groups. The amendment to the constitution changes this “Privilege” to become your “Right.” A state constitution is the best tool in your tool chest in the event this right is ever challenged. Thank you for your support. Now in honor of this victory for Texans, be sure to not only take a kid hunting with you this year but also try to make it a point to take another kid who has never hunted before and introduce him or her to the great outdoors.
