TN Constitutional Amendment

When we went to the polls Tuesday, one thing on the ballot in TN was a constitutional amendment for the state. Short version reads, "Passage of this amendment would allow the citizens of this state to have the personal right to hunt and fish, subject to reasonable regulations and restrictions prescribed by law."

Of course I voted for it, but it seems that many other Tennesseans like the idea of more freedom. The end results?

Yes - 1,255,840
No - 181,465

Yep, about 7-1 in favor of PROTECTING the RIGHT to hunt and fish. Pre-existing right, just like those listed in the BoR, now it is simply codified into law. Good stuff.
