ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Joseph Curl mentions a few radical groups attacking an animal welfare organization because it supposedly is against hunting and trapping (“Hunters now say Limbaugh is wrong,” Page 1, Tuesday). It boggles my mind that they cannot comprehend why animal protection organizations oppose the killing of animals. It’s like being upset that a children’s organization is against the slaughter of children.

Radical pro-gun groups are not wildlife or conservation groups, although Mr. Curl would have readers believe otherwise. In fact, the whole purpose of these groups is to kill wildlife for sport. The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) is a fringe group that even most hunters do not support. Last year, the USSA even stopped Meijer, a grocery-store chain, from donating to a humane society to help pet guardians who were in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure. The National Rifle Association (NRA), another radical group, goes against the ideals of its members by supporting cruel canned hunts. I suspect that most gun advocates would be shocked if they knew what they were supporting by giving to the NRA.
