Hunting for trouble

Solution in search of a problem:

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - Indiana lawmakers are again considering a constitutional amendment that would guarantee Hoosiers’ right to hunt.

 The proposed amendment earned statehouse approval two years ago. If it passes the legislature again this year, it would go to the ballot for Indiana voters to decide in 2014.

 The bill reinforces the rights of Hoosiers to hunt, fish, and farm. According to the Associated Press, the bill’s author, State Senator Brent Steele (R-Bedford) said he is sponsoring the amendment in reaction to animal-rights activists who he believes are trying to interfere with legal hunting and livestock production.

On my list of things not to worry about, PETA getting hunting outlawed is pretty near the top.
