WW, your logic that the reduction to 5 rounds will eventually lead to a reduction to 1 and then a reduction to 0 does not sway me. We could easily follow it in the other direction..
Not picking a dog in this fight or taking sides. Just want to share something from our govt.
Its called the Magnuson-Stevens Acthttp://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/magact/
No one ever thought that our 5 fish would go to 1 fish to zero fish, based on some knee jerk reaction revolving around faulty science and environmental "do-gooders(EDF/PEW/HSUS)". But it did.
Not only did that happen ( the "rights" of the public to access fish taken away and or greatly reduced
) it was given to commercial entities FOR PROFIT. We, as in We the People, were left onshore holding our rods while some entity the government can control had access. Can you imagine that? It really happened. The commercial fisherman were allowed to fish, catch and profit from a species(grouper) of fish that was labeled "overfished", while the family man was banned! As it stands we are still undergoing lack of access, reduced fishing days and species, reduced limits etc. This is an long battle that has continued and we're still losing ground.(the latest..........giving commercial longliners permits to fish offshore in federally closed waters, under the guise of "science"
This governmental control of its people is growing. Its the green-movement, the PETA movement, the "things need to be fair and equal" movement, the liberal movement, there should be no guns movement, the government can run our lives for us better than we can movement, etc etc.
I am not in any way shape or form insinuating that our access to a grouper equates to children being slaughtered, or the size of someone's gun, magazine, or access to certain armor piercing bullets.
But what I am saying, is DO NOT ever, ever be misled into thinking you won't lose something that you think "no way would the government would take that away" . Its happening daily, one small piece at a time.
