The same people who brought us ineffective protections from trapping in their opposition of Ward's good fight and Wiger's good fight were busy last legislative session forcing an unwise, unfunded mandate onto local law enforcement (to open their shooting ranges to the public) and attempting to suspend food-safety rules (to ignore the problem of lead contamination in the venison-donation program). In these other areas, they only succeeded in putting suburban metro-area law enforcement into a possibly-difficult position (if the DNR was to call them on it, which they're not likely to do) and taking venison-donation funding from food shelves. They like to represent their meddling in these issues as opposition to government regulation, but what it really is is making government regulations do more of what they want them to do. In consequence, they do less of what we need them to do.
