I am against this, amendment, but I believe the Republicans and the NRA have ulterior motives for this amendment. I remember humane animal groups were opposing the hunting of certain animals and birds who were raised, bred, etc., on land that was fenced in, causing the animals, birds, etc., to be confined to this area.

So-called sportsmen paid to hunt these animals and birds, and humane groups vehemently opposed this practice. As the Republicans make no bones about their total support for the NRA, this amendment would protect these inhumane practices.

They have also produced laws supporting the ownership of assault weapons, guns allowed in public parks and in company parking lots.
