"PETA has written to the CEO of Hudson News, Joseph DiDomizio, to request that his retail outlets handle hunting magazines the same way they would handle pornography or any other material that is inappropriate for kids:" WHO the hell are these morons to decide what's appropriate or inappropriate for MY children???

Why they are quite similiar to other people who think that pornography may not be appropriate for children. Who the hell are those morons???????

It boils down to whose ox is gored.

I think PETA is trying to use arguments that appeal to Christians and concearned parents: since you all think readily vewied porn could be harmful to children, then perhaps readily viewed killing could be too...The typical person would answer back that hunting and eating meat is normal. PETA would then answer that nudity and sex are also normal activities so why are you not consistent here?

I suspect that PETA could be using some conservatives arguments against conservatives. But I don't think it will work very well.

Libs: Yes, that is the exact argument raised by the people pushing for more sex on TV.

Why don't you and your handwringing go to a liberal forum and complain Mr. Obvious! It isn't "odd", it's human nature.

PETA has been causing trouble for years, but in recent days we've seen them target children by comparing turkeys to the family dog, we've seen them beg President Obama to not pardon the turkey at the White House and now, they're trying to make the argument that hunting magazines are worse than porn. 

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is encouraging national retailer Hudson News to put hunting magazines where children can’t see them -- because, “Like other forms of casual or thrill violence, hunting spawns a dangerous desensitization to the suffering of others.”
