Many of those involved in pigeon shoots are well-to-do professionals from cities. These depraved, insecure little men (and some women) have an insatiable thirst for blood, and since they are too cowardly to take on anyone their own size, they go after the most unthreatening, inoffensive animals they can find — pigeons — which come from the family of doves, birds of peace.
The battle against pigeon shoots involves much more than a relatively small number of cowardly, genetic and moral rejects who gun down half pound birds tossed out of boxes. The real "Sugar Daddy" of Pennsylvania's pigeon shoots is the National Rifle Association (NRA). It is the NRA that is successfully persuading some of PA lawmakers to allow these killing contests to continue.
From the video narration: Pigeon shoots do abuse children by stripping them of their compassion, and one might argue, of their very souls...Pennsylvania, claming itself the state of 'virtue, liberty and independence' caters to both child and animal abusers by allowing pigeon shoots.
Legislation is pending in the Pennsylvania House (H.B. 2130) to ban this atrocity with 50 co-sponsors. Unfortunately, House Majority Leader William DeWeese is refusing to bring the bill up for a vote. The Pennsylvania legislative session is almost over and action is needed now to pass this legislation.
What You Can Do
Please contact (even if you don't live in Pennsylvania) Representative William DeWeese and ask that he allow H.B. 2130 to be voted on:
