One of the reasons we bear arms is to hunt. It’s a long tradition in American history and it’s part of how this land was settled on the frontier.
For the left, however, hunting is evil and cruel. They would ban it if they could, and take every opportunity to portray hunters as sadistic freaks who enjoy murdering innocent creatures for fun.
The truth is hunters do what they do for many reasons, including meat. Also, another truth is many of the “innocent” animals the left loves so much would tear us all to shreds in a second, given the opportunity.
However, that doesn’t stop the noise; the latest target of the liberal hate campaign is Montana’s Republican Governor Greg Gianforte.
Gianforte Goes Mountain Lion Hunting, Left Goes Insane
Gianforte recently decided to go mountain lion hunting and it made liberals very angry. What happened is simple: Gianforte followed all the legal procedures for hunting a mountain lion in the state of Montana and did so on public land.
Gianforte did his hunt on public territory near Yellowstone Park near the small town of Emigrant, Montana, in late December. He was tracking a mountain lion that had been reported by the National Park staff.
He used hounds to chase down the beast which ran up a tree. Gianforte then shot it dead, bagging a nice kill.
This isn’t the first time Gianforte has given radical environmentalists the middle finger, either. A year ago, he got himself a wolf in a similar area.

Why Are Liberals So Angry?
Liberals are angry because the mountain lion was wearing a tracking collar, and so was the wolf a year ago. This doesn’t make it unethical to hunt the animal. In fact, park rangers suited the mountain lion up with a collar to keep track of where it went, since these creatures are quite dangerous and eat a lot of other animals.
They wanted to track that.
This is only hitting the news now, which is why it’s currently making headlines. According to Gianforte’s office, he did indeed hunt the mountain lion with friends; they used four dogs to chase it into a tree after they found its scent in a dry creekbed.
In addition, liberals are angry because mountain lions are rare. However, they are not an endangered species and males are legal to hunt.
The same asshole who assaulted a reporter while campaigning.
Greg Gianforte is a fucking asshole.https://t.co/mu9ZKWPZse

The Bottom Line
This is a made-up controversy, similar to those which came out about Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.
The liberals should be focusing their attention on the huge crime waves in their blue cities and on the unborn babies being murdered every day, not on outdoorsmen who like to track and kill wild animals.
The selective compassion is deafening.
