] SACRAMENTO, California (AP) -- Wildlife regulators took
] the first step Tuesday to bar hunters from using the
] Internet to shoot animals, responding to a Texas Web site
] that planned to let users fire at real game with the
] click of a mouse.The Fish and Game Commission ordered
] wildlife officials to prepare emergency regulations to
] ban the practice. A period of public comment will
] follow."We don't think Californians should be able to
] hunt sitting at their computers at home," said Steve
] Martarano, a spokesman for the state Department of Fish
] and Game.A bill passed by the state Senate two weeks ago
] would prohibit use of computer-assisted hunting sites and
] ban the import or export of any animal killed using
] computer-assisted hunting. The measure now moves to the
] state Assembly.
So un-American of those politicians to try banning hunting over the internet.
