More areas getting closed to shooting because of slob shooters:

 

http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/6420AP_WST_Raptor_Preser ve.html

BOISE, Idaho -- On Idaho's high desert, prairie falcons and eagles soar above the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area, hunting ground squirrels that pop their heads by the thousands above the warming earth.

 

Also watching for the rodents, known as "whistle pigs" for their shrieks: Bands of ATV-riding, gun-toting sport shooters, some of whom also take potshots at the federally protected birds or grazing cattle - all on 68,000 acres of the 490,000-acre federal preserve declared off-limits to rifles and pistols.

 

The federal Bureau of Land Management is considering forbidding the weapons on another 41,000 acres of the conservation area by this summer, but not because of bird or cow mortality. Rather, shooters have now taken a bead on Idaho Army National Guard troops, who report slugs bouncing off their tanks on a regular basis.

"There's a segment of the shooting community that will shoot at anything that moves," said John Sullivan, the area's manager.

 

.......Still, it used to be worse before the rifle-and-pistol ban in 1996.

 

"It was like World War III on the weekends out there," Sullivan said.

These clowns are not sportsman and should be charged as criminals.  People like this will kill our sport, they will sway people who don't really care over to the anti's.

the minority always screws it up for the majority, but then again i am sure that some of those bunny huggers over dramatize the situation at times as well.

Let's get to the point.  This article is not about slob shooters, it is about all of us. This is a simple piece of PROPAGANDA.  It is working because the part about shooting tanks and ww3 has started hitting the wire services.  The gun banners are behind schedule and are trying to play catch up.  This is about making all gun owners and ATV people look bad.

Unfortunately it is about all of us, as every moron shooting a 'no shooting' sign ends up speaking for us all, much less the ones shooting at tanks.

Lets get to the real point.  First, if people are shooting at tanks and endangered species of animals, then they are criminals and should be treated as such.  If they were doing the samething with knives or any other weapon, the point is, they are breaking the law and with what weapon is irrelevant.  It is only relevant to the liberal left who as Silver states, will use this in their propaganda to further emphasize their points why guns should be banned.  People break the laws everday driving legal automobiles and many kill innocent people, far more than legal gun owners, but we do not hear a cry from the left for banning automobile, well except for Al Gore and his other compatriots who have monthly energy bills, probably in excess of the combination of everyone logged onto to this site now (except for maybe DC).  These people should be arrested and prosecuted, period.

another thing to think about is location they are talking about the western side of idaho, opposed to the rest of the state this is the most populated area and also the most wealthy part of the state, people like that have tendensies to be either gun fanatics or total anti's, if this story would have been about the eastern side of the state i would have been shocked, idaho is a huge state the problem is that people in western idaho are slowly running out of room to play, another thing to think about is that these people on the atv's may be tourist type and not even be locals who knows. it seems to me like that everywhere i go the local's rarely ever raise hell like that with the exception of an outlaw or two but most trouble is caused by out of towners or out of staters.

The entertainment value in the media would be MUCH higher if the morons were throwing knives at hawks in the air, or stalking and trying to stab prarie dogs, or jumping on and stabbing tanks. With that in mind the fact is that they're using firearms for obvious reasons, and they're just making it worse for every other gun owner, and especially ones out shooting in a responsible manner.

Probably both, pyro.  Some people just don't like for others to have any fun!  The same kind of self-appointed sheriffs and bedwetting busybodies who shoot ATV blocks and hide their true identities by changing their names 3 times.
