I haven't hunted with my brother in New York State for many years now.
I was horrified to learn from my brother how everytime he visits his hunting lodge, he notices more and more new houses being built on the way to the lodge.
Pretty soon, he says, they'll be making that a shotgun county. (Meaning, hunting with rifles will no longer be allowed.)
And another freedom lost.
But I'll take it further: If that growth continues--and continue it will unless immigration of all kinds is halted--they'll eventually be no hunting at all.
And a few years after that, the gun laws will be as restrictive as those in densely populated New York City.
The right to bear arms and other BASIC freedoms are slowly being eroded by crowding from population growth from immigration.
You too Uh? I spend a lot of my free time in Upper Wisconsin. When I was a kid the WI North Woods was truly a wilderness to behold. Today, it is carved up with homes and developments through and through, especially around the lakes. Back home in the outlying areas NW of Chicago where I grew up and went hunting as a kid there are ten of thousands of new homes and town houses that now occupy the fields, woods and farmland I used to roam and thousands more are being built every year.
It is Sad what is happening to America's Open Spaces. I'll never understand the wacky notion that economic growth and prosperity rests with an ever-greater number of warm bodies in the country. Do we want to be like China or India? It's like the Open Border Cabal believe that capitalism can only work if there is a population explosion. Tell that to Switzerland! We as a nation won't know what we have lost until we have totally lost it.
