In response to Kip Moggridge’s Nov. 12 letter on “common sense” laws comparing the limiting of ammo allowed in your gun while hunting waterfowl to limiting the amount of ammo allowed in your gun while hunting humans. Common sense tells me that hunting humans is not allowed, or right and that those who do are breaking the laws of man and God, while hunting waterfowl to feed their families is allowed and right, and those who do are not breaking the laws of man (unless they have more than three shells in their gun) or God. Common sense also tells me that those who hunt humans are going to do so regardless of what laws we create, that is why we have the God given right to self defense. Common sense also tells me “criminals” don’t abide by the law — it is already against the law to hunt humans, you are allowed zero ammo in your gun to carry out this activity, so exactly what common sense law is Mr. Moggridge proposing? Limiting your human hunting ammo to three shells? I propose we enforce the laws we already have before overwhelming ourselves with more laws we don’t have the resources to enforce.
