I weep for our children

Can I just say that I think America’s laziness and need to shoot things has gotten so bad that I want to scream. It has gotten to a point where now anyone can hunt, even without a license, because you won’t be pulling the trigger. You will be clicking your mouse to shoot stuff on some crazy-ass Texans’s ranch. That’s right! Web-based hunting, with real world death.

If this interests you, I think you should go punch yourself in the face.

  1. There are lots of sick folks in Texas and some of them are living in the White House. I’m opposed to all killing of animals for “sport” whether it’s done remotely or in person, because of the unnecessary suffering involved. That’s also one of the reasons I’m a vegetarian and why I think animals should have legal rights.

    I wonder how anyone can be oppposed to the internet killing of a wild turkey and yet have no qualms about eating turkey on Thanksgiving. In both cases an animal is made to suffer and die unnecessarily to satisfy unjustifiable human preferences.

  3. Oh Jesus, that’s it.

    How long till the “guide” has an off day and a “ranch hand” turns into the game?

    What a tragedy that would be…

    Come to think of it, I’m sure there’d be a market for real-live people hunting if this takes off. I’m not joking. There are psychopaths in this world, and there are plenty of lawless remote regions. They’ve made films about hunting people. Now it could be a reality. Intercontinental mass murder brought to your home by the power of the internet.

    On the brighter side, he wants to use it to help paraplegics hunt… For pity’s sake – I’d have thought the SINGLE plus point about paralysis is it limits people’s ability to act on their most unpleasant and sadistic urges.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
