Corzine will seek to block bear hunt: Annual Game Code will not be approved (BRIAN T. MURRAY AND JOSH MARGOLIN, 10/27/06, Newark Star-Ledger)

Gov. Jon Corzine, a long-time opponent of the state's black bear hunts, is hoping to prevent this year's six-day season by not signing off on a key measure that regulates hunting and fishing in New Jersey, two administration officials said last night.

The officials said Corzine expects his actions will trigger lawsuits from sporting groups that have sued in the past to preserve the hunts.

The city party can't hope to maintain a majority in America.

Then a black bear sauntered into an exurb backyard, picked up a baby from his crib and went off. Experts: there is an overpopulation of black bears, and they run out of food. MSM: Humans are encroaching upon bear territory. Academics: Talk about unintended consequences. Hunters: We told you so, morons. Peaceniks: hold candle light vigils for the baby. Animal Right: the baby should not be placed in the bear's path,(i.e., he gets what he deserves). Corzine: lets put aside the partisanship, the most important thing is to get the baby back. In 2008, Corzine cruises to another win for the governorship for showing leadership in time of a crisis. Republicans: can't pick up their jaws which are dropped on the floor since the bear-baby incident. Baby: gone without a trace.

NJ politicians and animal rights activists ignore the fact that those bears were bought and paid for with revenue from hunting licenses and the excise tax on hunting equipment. NJ has been in a major land grab using this money provided by hunters, and then thinks nothing of making this land off-limits to humans, let alone hunters.
