Pretty in Pink....Lawmakers Use Old Stereotype to Appeal to Women

        In an important outreach to women, the NYS Legislature has found time to approve a bill to make flourescent pink an acceptable color to be worn by hunters when in the field. Pink would join orange as the color to be noticed in the woods.
        Lawmakers say pink, like orange, is not visible to deer and the new color would appeal to potential female hunters. How's that for patronizing ?
       Governor Cuomo is said to be studying whether to sign the landmark legislation.

I wouldnt worry about hunting in pink too much. I would rather worry about even being able to hunt period. With recent court rulings on the Federal Level and the possibility of a Clinton in the whitehouse the possibility is more one of will the second ammendment surivive.

I read the court ruling from the Feds in carry conceal.. One could only congradulate Judge Richards for understanding the law and enforceing it accordingly.
This means that you cant carry it concealed on a permit signed by Richards . The broader part of the law states IN PUBLIc.. This means you cant carry a handgun concealed anytime nor can you carry it in the open in public...
