Langford archery ban government intrusion

Langford archery ban gov’t intrusion

Re: Langford moves to ban backyard archery, News, March 11, 2011.

The article regarding Langford banning backyard archery infuriates me.

I watched silently as Langford cut back bow hunting to a few tightly controlled areas adjacent to Highlands.

Then we all watched the residential deer population grow. Now Langford thinks it will “protect” us from those nasty bow hunters who are likely to shoot you in the backside while practicing.

Hey Langford, leave us alone. I have a hay bale in my backyard and my kids and I practise once in a while. We use common sense when shooting, and of course, practice tips.

Stay out of our lives, quit trying to control the public under the guise of “public safety.”

If there have been only three complaints in 10 years, then what the heck are you wasting my time for. Chill out and find something else to do that is better use of our tax dollars.
