The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and its director, Dan Ashe, have taken control of 77 million acres of land in Alaska with abusive regulations. The government can do anything with regulations, even take over a state piece by piece.
The state no longer controls predators or establishes means and methods of hunting and trapping on these lands if no one intervenes.
This is why leftists can’t take over the Supreme Court of the United States.
Alaska’s wildlife now belongs to DC, at least 77 million acres do.
These are states rights.
Purchasing hunting and fishing licenses is done through state agencies and state licenses are issued. The federal government will now have such a program.
When Alaska was granted statehood in 1959, they were guaranteed ownership and control of game populations by Congress.
The very anti-hunting Humane Society of the United States thanked Ashe for his new rule.
These rule changes take away American citizens collective voice in managing the National Wildlife Refuge.
This will allow “city slickers to push their radical agendas throughout the nation” as Ammoland put it.
Ammoland asks: “We the People” are relegated to irrelevance, what is to prevent more power grabs in the Western states, where apex predators threaten to destroy what is left of its once-thriving populations of elk and mule deer?
The Sportsmen’s Alliance strongly opposes these rules and is working closely with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA), Alaska hunters and hunting guides, and the Alaska Congressional Delegation to block the Obama Administration from enforcing these new “HSUS rules,” Ammoland reported.
