Texas Prop 6: The Right to Hunt

The Wheel hasn't made recommendations for the Texas State Constitutional amendments on the November 3rd ballot. But there is one recommendation we read that is too good not to pass on. Besides telling you how to vote (or not), it explains the time wasted by the Texas legislature pandering to the base.

Proposition 6: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Text: The constitutional amendment recognizing the right of the people to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife subject to laws that promote wildlife conservation.

There is no threat to hunting, fishing, or harvesting wildlife in Texas, and the people who suggest conservation efforts are limiting any of those outdoor activities are probably the same ones who thought Jade Helm was a U.S. military invasion of Texas.

Conspiracies aside, there is no negative consequence if this amendment passes. Then again, there is no need for it to pass, either, since it changes absolutely nothing. We recommend skipping it entirely. Or voting for it passionately. Whatever. There’s literally no way you could screw this one up.

Also, that shrug symbol above that you may have seen on Facebook is called an "awl." Learning that random piece of information is probably more valuable to your life than this amendment will be to anyone in Texas.
Seriously, all of Progress Texas's recommendations on how to vote on the Texas State Constitutional amendments are worth reading.
