Alaskans get weary over the fight about the airborne shooting of our wildlife; the signing of petitions, the advertisements, the voting yet again, especially when it’s seemingly all for naught when our elected officials eventually go counter to the electorates’ decision.
Article 11, Section 11.6 of the Alaska Constitution allows ballot initiatives to be over turned after two years; thus it opens the door to a repeated fight. You have to ask yourself if the on-going struggle to protect Alaska’s wildlife is worth it, when our elected representatives ignore the people - again and again.
I think it is. And that’s why I will vote “Yes” on Ballot Measure 2, which will ban private citizens from shooting wolves and potentially bears from airplanes – for at least two years.
