So ... wouldn't they logically want to shut down puppy mills instead of support them?

So the NRA opposed this bill because they felt it would regulate honest dog breeders out of business, while puppy mill types would fail to register-- knowing they couldn't pass muster-- and would continue operating illegally and there are already laws to deal with that issue?

I'm having trouble seeing what I'm supposed to be so mad about.

Hilarious.  You obviously didn't read the article.

I would applaud the NRA working to shut down puppy mills, but in their usual farkass fashion, they are trying to deregulate them, make it so puppy mills don't have to treat their animals humanely.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Well I'm sure that there are many people in the NRA that want a good cheap hunting dog.


From the AKC news alert:


Senate Bill 460, however, punishes responsible breeders and owners and does nothing to help the dogs kept in deplorable conditions. North Carolina already has laws that address animal cruelty and mistreatment.

The AKC opposes several other provisions of Senate Bill 460, including:

A vague definition of commercial breeder. As amended, SB 460 defines "commercial breeder" as  anyone who owns or maintains at least 15 intact females of any age for the primary purpose of the sale of the offspring. This definition could include anyone who has bred even a single litter of puppies, including fanciers and show breeders.

Warrantless inspections of private property. The bill allows law enforcement and local animal control to search the homes and private property of anyone who falls under the definition of "commercial breeder".

Directive for the NC Department of Agriculture to develop standards of care with no public input.SB 460 calls for the Department of Agriculture to develop care and condition policies for dogs belonging to commercial breeders. This does not allow for any input from dog breeders and others who are experts in animal care.
Additionally, the fiscal note attached to this bill states that this unnecessary measure would cost the state over $400,000 a year. At a time when the state is furloughing employees and facing a projected $3 billion budget gap, improved enforcement of existing laws would be a better investment for North Carolina.

Puppy mills were already illegal, this made it harder for legitimate breeders to do business without doing anything to stop puppy mills.  It's almost like being told something out of context to incite anger in a group of people isn't just done by Fox News.

Old. I was two years old when that came out. :)

My parents collected National Lampoon and have that magazine somewhere (probably rotting in their attic).  It's considered one of the greatest magazine covers of the last half-century.

Now we know why the NRA supported Mitt Romney despite Romney signing an assault weapons ban into law in Mass. They both enjoy abusing dogs.

Using this logic, we should no longer require drivers to be licensed either.  After all, there's nothing stopping an unlicensed driver from operating a motor vehicle, so what's the point?

Some of us have a more expansive definition of freedom than you do. For example, I think dogs have a natural right to freedom from cruelty and inhumane living conditions. I am a liberal. I voted for Obama twice, and contributed to his campaign.  I also oppose restrictions on magazine capacity and cosmetic rifle features, but Obama has a lot of other good ideas that I support strongly, and lately he seems like the only grownup in Washington DC. Anyway, like I said before, fark the NRA. They're single-issue polical hacks who mostly don't appreciate or understand the complexity of the issue they are lobbying for. Just like the Sierra Club.

Puppy mill owners should be shot.

That's about the only connection I can think of to the NRA.

We already license and register dogs. So how much longer will it be before we face total dog confiscation? Well, according to the NRA, if the anti-freedom, er, anti-puppy mill lobby has its way, not long.

Both organizations have an interest in the subject.

Why is the NRA involved in dog breeding?
 
2013-02-13 05:06:28 PM
I used to volunteer for the local Second Chance Center helping with the dogs. Some of the full time staff were of the opinion that anyone who bred and sold dogs when there were dogs that needed homes at shelters was running a "puppy mill". The Second Chance Center had to shut down, because they raided a farm and siezed 170 dogs from the breeder/owner, who then sued and won in court a settlement that bankrupted the Second Chance Center. Of course, few were interested in donating to the SCC after their repuation was ruined and the money would just go to pay for a court settlement, so that didn't help either.

What is the point? Just because someone claims its a puppy mill, doesn't mean its a puppy mill. Good intentioned activists are sometimes wrong, and not all activists are good intentioned.

rufus-t-firefly: Why is the NRA involved in dog breeding?


The NRA supports hunters and some hunters have hunt dogs and I'm sure the North Carolina Sporting Dog Association didn't have the lobbyists, so they asked for the NRA's help.  Things like this happen all the time in politics. Small group A wants to fight for or against a bill but doesn't have the resources. So they ask Big group B to help out on their behalf.

Marge: [reading the poster with the cat on it] "Hang in there, baby!" You said it, kitty. [looks more closely] "Copyright 1968." Hmm, determined or not, that cat must be long dead. That's kind of a downer.
