UNCONSTITUTIONAL INTENT LAWS

Posted by gamecocksunlimited on February 19, 2012

First I would like to say I thank Intent laws are some of the most unconstitutional laws ever.  They make you guilty before you ever do anything wrong or someone can say you are guilty of intent just because you own something that could be used in a crime.  They are finding you guilty of what they thank is in your mind.  No one can tell if someone is going to do something before he does it, he can change his mind at any time.  The only people intent laws should be used on is the people who make the laws.

Cockfighting was legal in parts of the USA up until around 2008 and when it became illegal a lot of cockfighters switched over to showing their birds because of the love they have for the Gamecock.  However, when they switched they did not switch the way they took care of their bird they use the same methods and medicine to get them ready to show as they did to get them ready to fight.  Why you may ask, because it is the best way

Everyone has the right to change laws and protest unjust laws

Anti-Cockfighting and intent laws are arbitrary and hypocritical: It is okay to fish, hunt, trap, falconry, and to kill unborn baby.

We will look at some of what the animal rights say proves intent to fight used against the Gamecock Breeders

DOES CUTTING THE ROOSTER’S COMB PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     Cockfighting isn’t the only the only reason to cuts the roosters combs.  Under APA rules, any Modern gamecock or OEG that is not dubbed is disqualified from show competition.

The dubbing of game fowl (removal of the comb and wattles) is a practice followed by many in the poultry industry.  Dubbing is good animal husbandry and all poultry show rules call for it.  Dubbing prevents damage done by frostbite and provides better vision.  It reduces injuries incurred when the comb comes in contact with feeder and water grills, wires in cages and pens and since game birds are naturally pugnacious dubbing will prevent damage to the comb in the event of accidental contact with one another.

Dubbing also helps prevent the spread of mosquito borne illnesses.  The dubbing of gamefowl is in no way any indication of whether or not that bird is being used for fighting purposes.

DOES CUTTING THE ROOSTERS SPURS PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     Game fowl will most often have their spurs trimmed as well.  This is also good animal husbandry.  Contrary to popular belief, this is not done to attach weapons.  The spurs are hard, pointed, and naturally very sharp.  Trimming of the spurs of male birds prevents laceration of the backs of females during mating.  Sometimes these injuries are severe enough to cause the death of the female and again game birds are naturally pugnacious cutting the spurs will prevent severe damage to each other in the event of accidental contact with one another.  The spur if allowed to grow can inhibit a cock’s ability to walk as well, resulting in straddle legs and occasionally in overgrowing back into the male’s leg.  Trimming also prevents injuries to humans, such as caretakers and judges during handling of the birds.  The spur is very porous and harbors millions of bacteria.  A slight scratch from the spur can result in a serious infection to a human.  To minimize the chance of injuries all show rules call for the spur to be trimmed as a safety precaution.

DOES HAVING MEDICAL SUPPLIES PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     I don’t care if the bottle has the words for cockfighting on it.  A lot of stuff was introduced into the poultry world by cockfighters and they are great for the health of any chicken.  Most health aides have the same things in them just called by a different name.  Gamecock wormer is the same as silky wormer; conditioning power is just vitamin powder, and vitamin k for Gamecocks is the same vitamin k you would take.  Vitamin k helps the blood to clot it would be helpful if you were Dubbing, cutting spurs, if your bird was attack by a dog or any other predators and you needed to control blood loss.  In the cockfighting world, it may be call stop leak, but it’s just Vitamin k.  If we start, putting people in jail because of the name of their chicken medicine we have went a long ways backwards from freedom.

DOES HAVING A SET OF SCALES PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     A lot of show competitions are weight classed so you in a scale to be sure you are not disqualified.  They come in handy if you are dealing with a sick bird, to keep track of weight gain or loss and most of all when in a free Country did scales become illegal.

DOES HAVING A WORK BENCH OR FLY PENS PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     Health of an animal should be the most important thing to the animal rights mindset, but this isn’t necessarily so, they will use the fly pen, workbench, anything a breeder may do to exercise their bird the animal rights groups will try against them.  Exercise is one of the most important parts of any animal’s health.  Horse, Dog, Cat, and even hamster owners have ways to exercise their animals but heaven forbid that a chicken owner does.  The workbench gives the breeder a place to inspect, mediate, exercise, trim, cut spurs, or just spend time calming his birds for show or just because he likes spending time with his birds.

Fly pens with swing roosts and straw on the floor is the best exercise if you work hard and can’t spend a lot of time with you birds.  Free ranging in one of the best for a chicken’s health if you have the land and don’t have a lot of predators around.  I personally run my brood cocks though a keep just like you would if you were getting him ready to fight, just before I put them in my brood pens. I’ll also do young stags this way it is one of the best way to gentle them down. As far as I know it is not illegal in a free Country to exercise an animal or bird. The way I exercise my birds is not any ones BUSINESS or a way to prove I intend to fight them. Does exercising my Bluetick Coon Hounds or your Bird Dogs or your fluffy show dog show intent to fight? NO

DOES OWNING GAFFS OR SPURS PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     NO, when Cockfighting became illegal cockfighters that stopped fighting and switched to showing keep their gaffs it was and is part of their heritage some of these gaffs were handed down for generations. If I wanted to I could go to any hardware store and get what I need to make a set of gaff so outlawing gaffs is a waste of tax payer’s money.

DOES HAVING A LOT OF ROOSTERS TIE OUT PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     People raise hundreds of cattle, goats, horses, pigs, so why can’t Gamecock breeders. Some people like raising a lot of game fowl its hard work and good exercise. It could be one of the biggest Animal Agriculture Industries in theUSA.

DOES HAVING BOOKS, MAGAZINES, KEEPS, OLD WRITINGS, TALKING, WRITING, CHATTING, BLOGGING, WEBSITES, OR SUPPORTING THE SAME ABOUT COCKFIGHTING PROVE INTENT TO FIGHT?

     I never thought I would see a day in a Country that has a Constitution that protects our freedom of speech that what we read would or could be used to show intent. I have a RIGHT to read and study whatever I want to. These books have a lot of history in them. They have articles about feeding, breeding, health, general information on raising gamecocks and the history of the Gamecock and its breeders along with the histories of the different strains of game fowl. Having or reading these books or owning websites or blogging cannot prove intent when you have freedom of speech.

     The things listed above can only be used as intent, by corrupted animal rights groups, legislator, elected officials, law enforcement, Judges, and by very closed minded and hypocritical people.
