HANG ONTO THOSE DEER RIFLES
Hunters and gun owners “were able to breathe a sigh of relief when they found out Donald Trump won the presidency,” reports Outdoorhub, a popular online news source for hunters, anglers and fans of shooting sports.
“A couple of real big concerns in this election were the handling of the Supreme Court and defending our Second Amendment Rights. With Trump behind the wheel, we can rest assured that our right to bear arms is safe and sound. The only thing we do have to watch out for is transferring federal lands to the states. Sure, it sounds reasonable, but in reality, it’s just a backdoor attempt at allowing more resource extraction from our public lands,” the site noted in an editorial
“It appears, at least for now, that this was a big win for hunters. If you compare Donald Trump’s America vs Hillary Clinton’s America, it can be a little scary for both sides, but at least with Trump, we don’t have to worry about someone showing up at our doors looking to take away our deer rifles.”
The site is also hopeful about legislation introduced last year by Rep. Matt Salmon, Utah Republican, which would remove gun silencers from the jurisdiction of the National Firearms Act, and eliminate the “current complicated and expensive process’ associated with acquiring such a device.
“While this bill faced an uphill battle before the election that’s a very different story now. With Trump in the White House, a Republican Senate, and a Republican House this bill could be fast tracked to the President’s desk,” the site noted.
