Dementia of poor quality Joe. He attempted to “crackdown” on schools that offered hunting and archery activities. The US House shut it down, with only one Democrat voting against it.
I’m not sure how the resolution to chastise Biden on this passed with only one “nay” vote, but it did.
According to a Fox News investigation, the Biden administration, as it has done before, redefined words to further its objectives.
In this case, it redefined a 2022 gun-control law in Biden’s attempt to defund hunting and archery activities in schools.
The House voted to support legislation that would overturn Biden’s attempt to use the statute to deny money to schools that provide shooting sports courses.
On that vote, which was opposed by only one Texas Democrat, the House passed the Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act. In favor, 216 Republicans and 208 Democrats voted. The lone opponent was Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas.
The bill was drafted when it was reported several weeks ago that the Biden Department of Education was attempting to remove funds from school hunting and archery programs.
Rep. Mark Green, R-Tenn., explained, “Hunters and fishers are the best conservationists. Hunting, whether it be with a firearm or bow, is one of the most effective ways to control wildlife populations, protect our beautiful lands, and connect with nature. My Protecting Hunting Heritage and Education Act is critical for our children.”
Fox News Digital reported in July that Biden’s education officials threatened to cut funds from schools with hunting and archery programs.
In that, the administration insisted that “archery, hunter education and wilderness safety courses use weapons that are ‘technically dangerous weapons’ and therefore ‘may not be funded,’” the report explained.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Lawrence Keane said it was just another fight in Biden’s campaign on the Second Amendment.
The original bill forbade money for training someone “in the use of a dangerous weapon.”
According to the backers, the intention was to prevent such funds from being used to educate police personnel in schools.
