Hunting on Sundays Now Allowed in VA
Last fall I had an idea that I sent in to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. It was a submission for a new law to be made, allowing hunting on Sundays, on private lands. Well, it turns out a lot of other people in Virginia also thought it was a good idea, and they’ve been pushing for it for years.
This year the Virginia State Legislature decided to turn it into a law: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?141+sum+SB154
I am personally glad to see this go through and look forward to hunting some Sundays next year. There are a lot of people against it though, and for a variety of reasons. Most interestingly, some Christians are against this:
Which I find interesting, being a Christian. I actually think the article is pretty well written as far as addressing most of the concerns, so I won’t go into great depth about the various points.
It will likely be a widely debated subject for a while, but numerous other states (even those in the Bible Belt) have been making it work for years. I think it’s a good thing and know it will have a positive impact on the state.
