Totally not an accident waiting to happen….

Here’s the bloodbath amendment set for approval next Tuesday, as documented in the San Diego County Board of Supervisor’s agenda.

The text :

AMEND COUNTY CODE TO ALLOW A MENTORED, YOUTH-ONLY WILD TURKEY HUNT AT WILLIAM HEISE REGIONAL PARK (DISTRICT: 2)

OVERVIEW:

Hunting was an integral part of the settlement and the expansion of the United States. Whether it is for recreation, to provide food or as part of a range/habitat management program, hunting continues to be practiced across the country. Currently, the Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation has the authority to allow hunting on County of San Diego owned park land. However, existing ordinance restrict the possession and use of weapons in a County park, making hunting illegal.

The San Diego Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation has approached the County with a proposal to sponsor and administer a mentored, juniors-only wild turkey hunt on County park land. This event would provide guidance to youth on safe hunting and expose them to the sport in a controlled and structured environment.

This Board letter proposes amendments to the County’s Code of Regulatory Ordinances. The amendment would allow the use of ifrearms or archery equipment at William Heise Regional Park for a mentored, juniors-only wild turkey hunt. As a result, the San Diego Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation could conduct a mentored, juniors-only turkey hunt at this park. Theis action will also authorize the Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation to enter into an agreement with the San Diego Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation regarding the hunt.

So, yes, after the board votes to make it even more next-to-impossible to access medical cannabis in the unincorporated county, they will vote on whether to let a bunch of kids chase down turkeys with bows and guns in a public park.

    This brings to mind the Simpson episode (s8e15) when homer makes Bart go hunting to cure him of being gay.
