The rifleman

Posted By on Wed, Apr 8, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Rep. Jon Woods (R-Funny Farm and Springdale) presented Sen. Steve Faris' right to hunt and fish constitutional amendment in the House Monday. According to my legislative source, Woods was asked if he had hunting and fishing licenses. Yes, he reportedly said. Current? Yes, he reportedly said.

It would not appear to be so.

I called the Game and Fish Commission. Licenses (like concealed weapon permits) are a matter of public record. The public record doesn't list Woods among hunting and fishing license holders. (Woods does have a concealed carry permit, which clearly establishes his bona fides to push that resolution for unfettered semi-automatic rifle use in America.) He had a hunting license. It expired last June. The fishing license expired last July. You missed some prime time, sport.

I'm seeking a comment from the rock 'n' roll legislator on the reported discrepancy. Rep. Woods, you also still owe me a callback on another little matter.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
