In a recent thread, discussion has centered around on how to come to terms with the likes of the LACS, with education and cooperation being purported as the main arguement. However with most groups like this, it is class warfare which drives them. They see their movement as an attempt to remove the sport of the 'bourgeois', and no amount of reason or logic will deter them. That's the problem we face.
In all honesty, I am fully set agaisnt any sport which involves cruelty towards animals, dog fighting and badger baiting springing to mind, and I wholly support any movement that intends to bring an end to such vile spectacles. However, LACS are more intrested in class warfare than anything. They seem to devout very little time in stopping what I would consider a bloodsport, and tend to focus all their energy on the shooting and hunting community. Why? Because it's class they care about! You'll find most of the their top brass have strong left wing and marxist leanings, and no amount of arguement or logic will change their opinion on shooting. The hunting act was about class, not animal welfare, and now gun ownership and stalking is about class.
