Activists’ tactics make a lot of sense now

Jennifer Langston’s article, “Aiming to miss” (news, Oct. 21), was a delight! It was clear from the article the anti-hunting activists are observing safe gun practices and while ettiquette may be an issue, I, for one am glad to see peaceful civil disobedience during a time when our freedom has been challenged as profoundly as it has been recently. While I am appreciative of the culture of hunting animals in our country, the events of recent weeks have me wondering if recreational killing of any kind has a place now. I am in a mood to allow anything that can fly to fly safely.
