Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Let's do this one, too: subsistence hunting. [View all]

There's this other NRA meme running around, that proponents of gun control measures don't know or care about the poor, some of whom hunt to put food on the table.

I'm cool with subsistence hunting. In fact, I think people who demonstrate this need and live near the appropriate hunting grounds should be provided safety instruction and whatever assistance required to be safe, successful hunters who eat what they shoot.

I have no problem exempting subsistence hunters from gun control legislation; I imagine a means test for a gun permit would be more than fair.
