More valuable: Ducks or children?

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

I just found out ducks are more precious than children. I was told a shotgun holds six shells, but when you use a shotgun to hunt ducks you have to put a plug in the shotgun so the shotgun will only hold three shells. The reason for this is because ducks fly in flocks and hunters aren't allowed to shoot too many at once.

It amazes me we can't limit the amount of ammunition in a magazine clip that has been used to kill children, teenagers, and adults but we limit the amount of ammunition we use to protect our nation's ducks.

Sincerely,
