FAWN TANTILLO WANTS KIDS TO KILL SQUIRRELS AND RABBITS TO GET 'EM HOOKED ON HUNTING

IT IS RUMORED THAT SHE IS A DEER HUNTER, BOW AND ARROWS PREFERRED

FAWN sat in the front row and had her hand up much of the time. She offered suggestions about how to increase hunting. It's clear why she would want to: FAWN TANTILLO'S HUSBAND OWNS SUNSET SPORTING GOODS. Fawn is not a regular person: She is an Ulster County legislator and she is running for the NYS Assembly!

It's important to hear what her comments were at the meeting. We will be placing ads in the papers to let folks know more about her:

While most moms are trying to keep firearms out of schools, Fawn is trying to get them in.  She supports youth hunting.  To add insult to injury, she wants free youth hunts to make it easy for kids to get started. Fawn also wants kids to be encouraged to start with rabbits and squirrels.  She suggested that the DEC let kids kill small animals without having to pay for a permit.

If you don't like the idea of having firearms classes in school, the promotion of hunting in schools, encouraging the killing of animals in schools, then be sure to write to the Governor and your legislators to let them know that you don't want firearms classes taught in schools. See www.wildwatch.org click on "letters" and make the appropriate selections.

If you think the promotion of firearms in schools is an idea that's not going anyplace, think again. The following is a summary of an item in the minutes of the NYS Conservation Fund Advisory Board: Bill Connors, NYSCC (Conservation Council - a good ole boys hunting club) Region 3 Director, said that he wanted all in attendance to get involved in promoting sportsman educational programs in local high schools. Everyone present was aware of the program running in the Pine Bush High School. The program is listed as a credit course and is the most popular elective course in the school. They want this to spread throughout the state!

Call Pine Bush High School and let them know that it's unacceptable. (See page 3 for full text).
