One member says "Yes, in busy hunting zones there should be a re- striction on gun si2e Also an age limit should be set on persons purchasing guns and gun sizes allowed should be set according to age Any hunter under the influence of liquor should have his licence revoked for one full year SUFFICIENT Another member says control is sufficient for legal allowed firearms." Sportsmen are adamant on one point, however, believing that it is not usually the sportsmen's gun that commits a cnme.' Others are not aware of gun control laws as applied to criminal intent or use One sportsman was asked, Will the registration, volun- tarily, of all guns owned by private citizens help prevent an increase in crimes of vio- lence? He answered "Any person who voluntarily regis- ters his gun is not out to com- mit a cnme A bad thing about gun registration is that should a country that has its guns registered be conquered by another country the ene- my can use the registration records to take guns from people and leave them de- fenseless This happened in the Netherlands during the Second World War The Ger- mans confiscated all register- ed 'NO DARN WAY' Another sportsman asked the same question, says 'No darn way He says, ''The gun was known as an instrument of destruction from the day it was invented People will have to be made aware of its other uses Does the gun kill or is it the person who holds the gun? Says one sportsman: "The person who holds the gun A person who wishes to kill will do so witii or without a gun" Sportsmen generally be- lieve that criminals will ob- tain guns whether or not all guns aie icgtstered Is it pos- sible to keep guns away from criminals' "Absolutely not The criminal will find some means of obtaining and using a gun1' Another says, "No way." What is the value of the hunter-training program? 'NOT COMPLETE ANSWER' "Not the complete answer' At present flie only means of gaming first-hand knowledge of proper handling and game identification." Another hunter said- "It trains a person to be a care- ful, law-abiding sportsman. I think anyone who wishes to obtain a hunting licence, for the first time, should be re- quired to have taken a hunter- tra'ning course'' Names have been withheld in this story to encourage sportsmen to speak their minds on this controversial issue Women of Unifarm to tour seed plant, Sunshine Ranch WARNER (HNS) of Unifarm.

At present members are studying the possible legaliza- tion of marijuana. Members were urged to be prepared to accept or reject legislation by studying the pros and cons. They were told to use all ap- proaches in the community, schools, churches and private homes to make people more in- formed In six years, in some rural areas, marijuana (canr.a- bis) has become just as social- ly acceplbie as tobacco and alcohol Another survey showed that families that work and play to- gether. that have thines to do. hare no Jime to wander about to find something to do Panels are the ehiJdren's example Drags are no respecter of age. wealth, position, or area.
