No doubt he’s confused. I think he meant to say he went Snipe hunting.
His language is intentional. The Left has been carefully gaining control of the discussion through the straw-man of their generosity toward the guarantee of “hunting rights” in the 2nd Ammendment, thereby creating the subconscious framework that hunting is the extent of the rationale behind it.
When they attempt this type equivocation, they must be pounced upon. I would refuse to even discuss the matter with anyone who will not first acknowledge the premise that the 2A was created to ensure the existence of an armed populace able to resist a tyrannical government.
