4. Sport vs. Utility
I'd rather the NRA guy dressed in military-style camo than a hunting outfit. States use wildlife hunting as a way of herd-control to cut down on overpopulation and disease control.
Let the NRA be viewed as being "at war" against the public interest.

7. From one WI-ite to another.....
I recognized the "DNR Dogma" ( "we have to cut down on overpopulation and we need to control disease" ) that hunters here in WI use to justify hunting, assuming from your tag name that you are indeed a Badger. No, animals do just fine regulating their own numbers, when nature sets its own balance. When hunters stopped slaughtering top predators ( wolves, primarily ) the deer herd numbers came down. Now WI hunters want to kill wolves. Scientists would prefer to let the deer and wolf populations balance themselves out. But that's a topic for another time.
But the politician is VERY well dressed: RED TIE to indicate he is a Conservative Republican, in general.
And YELLOW SHIRT to indicate he is a spineless coward who won't cross the NRA, even if he truly believed some gun control laws are necessary.
Very accurate cartoon!
