Ducks and democracy

To The Daily Telegraph
Here in the US we have a law making it illegal to hunt ducks or geese with more than three shells in one’s shotgun. We want to give them a fighting chance, as it were.

A companion law also makes it illegal to hunt those migratory birds with a machine gun, but that just seems downright sensible, doesn’t it?

Ducks have more protection from guns under US law than schoolchildren, grocery shoppers or concert-goers. I guess we like it that way, since this is a democracy and we only pass the laws we want to live by – at least that’s how I think it works.
