The second amendment also has nothing to do with recreational shooting or shooting in an unsafe irresponsible manner. The state has no more obligation to allow you to shoot on public land than it does to build you a church.Just like dog hunting makes my area and concerns differnt , QOS, has unique things that make her concerned. I frequently hear the "people can still shoot on sundays" argument. It isnt really relevant here. In VA it is generally illegal to shoot on public land unless you are hunting or at a designated range. Several of the Wildlife management areas have sight in ranges specifically because other hunters got tired of the yahoos and figured it there was a free safe place to shoot at many of the hunting grounds people would use them. It is also illegal to shoot on private land without an adequate backstop. Of course adequate isnt defined but its a step in the right direction. Interestingly enough the sherrifs dept will respond to a call of a neighbor shooting on their land and see if they have a back stop, but wont respond if the shooter is shooting at game, or is trespassing on my land. Go figure that one out.
There are people that just hang targets on trees and shoot. Kinda upsets me because people like that can ruin it for the rest of us. I like to shoot and have a big giant dirt pile I shoot into, but some yahoo down the road sending some rounds out through the woods and hits something will end up getting laws passed prohibiting ,me from safely shooting. Pretty much the way it goes. Yahoos that Qos is dealing with will end up ruining it for the responsible shooters.
SOmething I keep bringing up to the "Sunday Hunting" advocates. Police your own, kick the trespassers out of your club, cancel leases to hunt clubs that road hunt, dont dog hunt other peoples land. Push for trespass enforcement, get off the roads and away from the beer coolers. Push for minimum acreage requirements for dog hunting, Do something to aleviate the concerns of the non sunday hunting groups, surprisingly many of whom are hunters. You will see Sunday hunting opposition disappear.
