Only my third thread post,so be gentle.
Did John Kerry break state and federal law during his goose hunt?All of the photos I've seen DO NOT show a "tag" attached to any goose.Ohio state,and therefor federal,law requires that all migratory game birds that you have killed,but are not in posession of,be tagged with pertinent information.John Kerry said he was "Too lazy" to carry his own bird.If that goose did not have a tag,then I submit that Kerry is violation of state and federal law.
Tagging:No person shall give,put,or leave any migratory game birds at any place OR IN THE CUSTODY OF ANOTHER PERSON unless the birds are tagged by the hunter with the following information:(1)the hunters signature;(2)the hunters address;(3)the total number of birds involved,by species;and(4)the dates such birds were killed.No person or business shall receive or have in custody any migratory game birds BELONGING TO ANOTHER PERSON UNLESS SUCH BIRDS ARE PROPERLY TAGGED.
DUAL VIOLATION.Violation of state migratory bird regulations is also a violation of federal regulations.
Here's what I think happened:
Kerry didn't bag a goose at all.
Kerry asked someone else if he could carry their goose out for the photo-op.
That person, aware of the law, explained it to Kerry.
So, Gooseless Kerry just said he was "too lazy" to carry his.
OTOL Maybe Kerry didn't shoot the bird. Maybe the person carrying it was the actual hunter......Kerry just went along to observe....Remember no press was allowed near. (p.s. pass it on!)
There's another thread here on this somewhere. I posted the same regulation as you did but the goose hunters said it's not enforced.
hhhmm! We're thinking on the same lines....Logical explanation.
Love your name...he's a traitor too but no one has done anythibng about that either!
You would hope a judge wouldn't follow the law?
Some laws are stupid and shouldn't be enforced. Or do you believe that judges should enforce all laws on the books to the letter of the law and to their fullest extent?
Who decides which laws are stupid?
Ah, the old answer a question with a question tactic. It was a simple yes/no question. Please answer.
I do, but only when those laws are detrimental to liberals...;>)
Did Kerry even have a hunting license?
As much as I'd love to nail him, I'd hate to see it on such a bad law.
No, wait. I'd love to see it on such a bad law, so he can get rid of it. The polticians seem quicker to act when it's their problem.
I don't think it counts if the birds were already dead before any shot was fired. We all know that Kerry didn't shoot anything, he can't even throw a baseball for God's sake and it takes more coordination to nail a goose in flight.
Laws are for the little people....
