In Defense of Gamefowl Ownership & Use

Posted by gamecocksunlimited on February 8, 2012

Dear Fellow Animal Owner:

My name is Jim Beers and I try my best to defend our rights to own and use animals whether they are public property held in trust for all of us like the waterfowl I hunt at every opportunity or private property like the beef I eat or the dog in my home. I am asking you to consider joining and supporting your State Gamefowl Breeders Association and the National Gamefowl Breeders Association.

Gamefowl husbandry and the culture and tradition it represents are every bit as worthy of defending as is duck hunting and all the culture and traditions it has given us.  Simply put; the gamefowl traditions, like trapping, are prime emotional targets of those who would destroy all animal use and ownership be it for food or sport or any other use.  Uninformed urban voters and politicians seeking perpetual reelection are “useful idiots” (to quote Lenin) for the Non-Governmental Organizations that make millions of dollars and share in new power as they get laws passed that restrict, then regulate, and then eliminate animal use and all the traditions and benefits that go with them. Here inVirginiathe recent State laws making gamefowl sport punishable more so than wife beating, and then criminalizing allowing a minor to attend a gamefowl event should be a wake-up call for all Americans.  Trappers, hunters, fishermen, cattlemen, poultry growers, and many other animal users should understand that these precedents will soon be used on them.  For instance, the richest racing horse owners recently got Federal legislation passed banning horse slaughter by any American horse owner because they (the rich guys) treat their horses like “pets”.  Ironically, that meant nothing when the #2 horse in the Kentucky Derby broke both front ankles at the finish line: the cries are going out to “ban” horse racing because the radicals we are facing do not recognize either common sense or tolerance or friendships.

It takes money, cooperation, publicity and lobbying to stop new laws and rescind bad laws.  Gamefowl should only be regulated at the Local level but the radicals force all of us to work at the State and Federal level with the politicians, courts, and bureaucracy.  I believe that as gamefowl breeders go; so goes all animal property and all of the associated rights and freedoms we cherish in The United States of America.  For all these reasons I have recently joined the Virginia Gamefowl Breeders Association and the United Gamefowl Breeders Association.  Won’t you join me on the front lines of the fight to keep our animals and our American liberties?  Please sign up and participate in defending our rights; otherwise we will lose them for sure.

If you, like me have never attended a gamefowl event but you understand the importance of not allowing the radical groups to set these precedents that will soon enough be used on you: join your State Gamefowl Breeders Association and the United Gamefowl Breeders Association because they need your help. (PS  Neither Association supports the use of knives and they both support health inspections to prevent the spread of disease.)  Go to united069@centurytel.net for more information and the address of your State Association.

Thanks for your help; you will help more than you know by drawing a line in the sand for all those determined to eliminate your rights associated with animal ownership and use.
