IAPCAR DENOUNCES TREATMENT OF GUN PUBLICATIONS AS PORN



IAPCAR DENOUNCES TREATMENT
OF GUN PUBLICATIONS AS PORN

BELLEVUE, WA – The International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR) denounced a changed in policy by the British book store W.H. Smith to now treat hunting and self-defense publications featuring guns the same as pornography.

Even though youngsters under the new age requirement are permitted to hold a shotgun license, W.H. Smith’s new policy bans legitimate self-defense and hunting publications from young people under 14-years-old. The new policy also requires the purchaser show identification to purchase the magazines the same as they require for the purchase of pornography.

The new policy was backed by a group called Animal Aid, Britain’s largest “animal rights” organization. Among other beliefs, the group clams in one of its own reports that “lurid, pro-violence content” of  the country’s shooting sports magazines could have a “corrosive, long-lasting effect on impressionable young minds.”

IAPCAR executive director Philip Watson denounced the store’s policy.

“Clearly this store is allowing itself to be governed by a fringe group,” Watson said. “There is no legitimate proof that censorship like this will improve a youngster’s understanding of gun safety, or self-defense and hunting. In fact, I think it will probably have the opposite effect.”

“The fact that youngsters under the age requirement to purchase these publications are permitted to license a shotgun outlines the stupidity of this new rule,” Watson concluded.

“A parent has an obligation to educate their children about the use of firearms,” added IAPCAR Co-Founder Julianne Versnel. “As a mother and gun owner, I am offended that publications about self-defense, target shooting, or hunting are being treated as pornography.”

    As we speak, the UN is passing an international “law” to take away our guns. hillary is standing by this law. We need to break away from the UN and its gun laws and agendas. As a “hunting” grandmother, I support the Constitution and all of its amendments. My grandchildren hunt with their parents. My 19 -year-old granddaughter joined a hunt club in Virginia at 14. Shot her first deer at 15. My 12 year old granddaughter just signed up for 4-H shooting. Her father bought her her first rifle – a 22. Perfect for a beginner! I remember my grandfather getting a bear in Canada. I’ve hunted deer, squirrel and rabbit. I’ve shot pistols for marksmanship. It’s part of American life. It insults me also that shooting and guns is compared to porn that is a blight on society.

      Thank You for the comment… With all due respect, as a hunter, it’s also important to point out that our Second Amendment was not written so that we could hunt bears, deer and ducks. It was written to give us the ability to hunt politicians who’d turned into treasonous tyrants.
