Amid concerns about gun crimes, do hunting pictures go too far?

one of the more ridiculous Letters to the Editor

Amid concerns about gun crimes, do hunting pictures go too far?

The Random House College Dictionary defines pornography as “obscene literature, art, or photography, esp. that having little or no artistic merit.”

The Star Tribune ran photos of children holding weapons over dead animals. On many Facebook pages, there are warnings about objectionable content that the user has to opt-in to see. The number of hunters in the U.S. is at an all-time low at the same time gun deaths and crimes are on the rise. As a resident of north Minneapolis, I am dismayed that these photos are allowed to be shown. If a group of young neighborhood children stood around displaying weaponry, would you publish it or decry it?

They’re just as interested in destroying the culture of hunting and lawful gun ownership as they are in passing Universal Background Checks and Red Flag Gun Confiscation orders.

When they’re done passing their laws against “large-capacity magazines” and “assault weapons”, it’ll be your hunting rifle and shotgun next.

In fact, in the last legislative session, Senator Ron Latz and Rep. Jamie Becker-Finn authored a bill that would have made almost every semi-automatic rifle and shotgun a “semi-automatic military-style assault weapon” under Minnesota law.
