Jerry Patterson: Putting the "Nut" in "Gun Nut"
I am a hunter. I support the Second Amendment. Hell, I even got a "B" rating from the NRA when I ran for State Representative (it may have been a "C"; the point is, damn near everyone else either got an "A+" or an "F"). So I can definitively say that refusing to sell the Christmas Mountains to the National Park Service because they won't allow hunting, and instead selling the plot to private investors who have already said they won't let the general public in at all, is moronic. If Jerry Patterson wants to continue his crusade for Second Amendment absolutism, he needs to go back to the State Senate. If he is going to be Land Commissioner, he should put the public first. Protecting the environment somewhere in there would be nice, too.
