In the West, fishing is more regulated than buying a gun

When Marty Jones wrote this piece post the Las Vegas mass shooting little did he know that just a few weeks later we’d be dealing with our next mass shooting.

As the West’s elected officials wrestle with how to protect us from gun violence in the aftermath of the Las Vegas nightmare, two things come to mind.

Because here in the West, fish get far more protection than people.
