Letter to the editor: No Sunday hunting

I urge Pennsylvania lawmakers to not allow Sunday hunting. I enjoy the outdoors in our great state, and I feel that I and others should have one day a week to enjoy our beautiful woods in peace and quiet, not having to fear being shot by a careless hunter.

Many churches are located in rural areas. Should people not have the right to worship in peace and quiet and not have services disrupted by the sound of gunfire?

Some people argue that hunting will generate more revenue. But will one more day of hunting make many more people take up hunting? Are hunters suddenly going to buy more guns and hunting clothes to have one more day? I am sure they will use their same equipment, although they may use a little more ammunition.

Please do not allow hunting on Sundays.

David L. Silvis


TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
