Petition to Legalize Cockfighting In The U.S.
Be a signatory http://www.PetitionOnline.com/roosters/ Petition to Legalize Cockfighting In The U.S. To: U.S. Congress Before basketball and baseball took the Philippines by storm, cockfighting was and still is the Philippine’s most popular and national sport. Cockfighting has a history which traces back to times before Christ. However, before cockfighting even became a sport, the bird, the fighting-cock, was regarded as an admirable animal, drawing respect from men. The fighting cock was a subject of religious worship. According to Diodorus Siculus, the Ancient Syrians worshipped the fighting-cock as a deity. The Ancient Greeks and Romans associated the fighting-cock with the gods Apollo, Mercury and Mars. Magellan claimed that in Borneo, the bird was so sacred that no one could eat its flesh. In South Canara, the bird claimed to ward off evil demons. In Sumatra, the gamecock was worshipped, a temple built to it, and rituals performed to honor the deity. Cock fighting occurred in the temples and the dead bird which lost the battle was prepared to be presented to the deities. The bird would be placed in a gold cauldron, soaked in gums and spices. Then its body was burned on an altar and its ashes were placed in a golden pot or urn. Scott, “History of Cockfighting” The history of cockfighting is hazy, there does not seem to be a definitive point in history as to when cockfighting became an official sport. In the times before Christ,approximately 3,000 years ago during the times of the Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Canaanites, cockfighting was popular. Breeding gamecocks for fighting in a pit was considered an art and trading these birds was profitable. In Egypt, in the time of Moses, cockfighting was a favorite pasttime. During the height of Greek civilization, Themistocles — a general who was preparing to drive away the invading Persians — decided to hold a cockfight the night before the battle to inspire his men by showing the courageous nature of the fighting cock. Persian traders loved to gamble by pitting their fighing birds against each other. They would often carry their birds with them and pit a fight in the marketplaces and trading centers. In the first century after Christ, Julius Caesar led Rome into enjoying the sport of cockfighting. He was the first citizen of Rome to be an enthusiast of the sport. Caesar ultimately introduced cockfighting into England. In the 16th century, cockfighting was flourishing in England. During the time of King Henry VIII, cockfights were held at Whitehall Palace. The game became a national sport at one point and exclusive schools were required to teach students the points of cockfighting, such as breeding, walking, and conditioning of the gamecock. At its very height of popularity, even the clergy encouraged the sport. Church yards and inside of the churches were used as an arena for cockfighting. The sport declined in England during the reign of Queen Victoria in the 17th century, when she banned cockfighting with a royal decree. Today, cockfighting is almost nonexistent. However, in the British isles, there still esixts a breed of gamecocks known as the Pyles strain of Charles II that is a highly sought after bird by cockers and breeders. In ancient Gaul, cockfighting was somehow brought into the country through travelling caravans or by those who returned from Rome or the East. During the Middle Ages in France, cockfighting was very popular. Eventually, France adopted the cock as a national emblem. Today, cockfighting has been driven underground. In Spain, cockfighting has existed for the longest period of time. How it arrived is uncertain. Theories point to travelling Phoenicians or the conquering Moors. Today, cockfighting is a popular sport in Bilbao, Oviedo, Madrid, Barcelon, and Valencia. Many Filipino breeders travel to Spain to obtain ideal birds for breeding. Many gamecocks in the Philippines have a blood strain of Spanish game cocks. In the United States, famous presidents who were lovers of the game were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln. It was socially acceptable and encouraged for a gentleman to have a flock of gamecocks and to be an expert on the sport. At one point, the U.S. became a center for cockfighting activities and events. Cockfights were even held in the committee rooms of the President. It is said that the fighting-cock

almost became the national emblem. It lost by one vote to the American eagle. Cockfighting declined when the civil war started. In the Philippines, it was said cockfighting was already popular by the time the Spaniards arrived. It was recorded that in 1565, natives of Butuan were watching cockfights when the Spaniards came for supplies. Legalizing cockfighting would bring in billions of much needed tax dollors!! It would help out a number of feed mills and gamefowl supply stores.Also the hotel and resturant industry’s would sky rocket.Overall there is everything to gain and nothing to lose except needed money!! As Abraham lincoln once said: “As long as the Almighty has permitted intelligent men, created in his likeness to fight in public and kill each other while the world looks on approvingly, it’s not for me to deprive the chickens of the same privilege.” Abraham Lincoln Thank You. Sincerely, The Undersigned Signatories and Their Comments Updated 23 April 2011 For up to date list, go here. 3681. Brooke I’d rather watch birds anytime not grown men and women its rediculous! 3680. Cody Kreizenbeck 3679. John Webb 3678. jose d martinez Give me Liberty, I will do the same for you legalize this old sport mass murder of chickens is allowed by kfc but this noble sport is outlawed wtf 3677. Troy Thrasher 3676. Timothy D. Poss A rooster is born with the deep drive to fight,you can’t teach him.They are natural born fighting/killing machines.If you put two game roosters close to one another.One would kill the other.You should at least legalize natural heel fighting. 3675. Emily Coleman 3674. Stacy 3673. Edwin Oquendo 3672. Robert Smith Legalizing cockfighting = tax money What gives the animal rights supporters the right to take away our heritage. 3671. jessica 3670. justin oliver if they are going to allow men to fight in cages they might as well let chickens fight 3669. desirae 3668. Stephanie Oliver 3667. Levi Wilson this fine

Norman make it legal it would help the country alot. i think Abraham Lincoln said alot or should i say (Honest Abe) refereering cock fights is where his name came from and not to mention 2 more famous names in American cocking the first u.s. president George Washington and the 7th u.s. president Andrew Jackson (chicken George) won his freedom owing to his skill as a “handler”and feeder” of fighting cocks.On the other hand President Andrew Jackson – (The old Hickory)- kept his brown red gamecocks in the WhitHouse stables so give us back out rights that should of never been taking. 3654. Andrew C. Shupe I believe that the sport that I came to love at such a young age has been unfairly banned from every state. It has been attacked by different standards than are used to pass any other law. The bans on the sport have been strong armed through the law making process by the politicians that are running this great country into the ground. I love the sport and everything that comes with it and would love nothing more than to be allowed to participate in it once again without fear of persecution. 3653. gaidon this is mother nature creation ,its been here since adam and eve it needs to be legal just like casino in the world 3652. Dewayne Brooks 3651. Ashley 3650. Larry 3649. Eric this article came out of the game cock How about this decision. The United States Supreme Court, Handed down in 1871 a decision, that may be of interest. The Court held that canary birds were NOT live animals because in a tariff act Congress spoke of “animals, living, of all kinds,” in one paragraph and of birds singing and other in another this the Supreme Court said, showed that Congress did not believe that birds were living animals.The Appellate Court took it from there. The canary bird decision, it said, also indicated that Congress meant that only FOUR LEGGED creatures were animals 3648. rick cantrell 3647. robbie family tradition legalize cockfighting if you dont like it dont attend them its alot of our lives 3646.

3641. Steven LaRue

3640. Mr. Page

the native americans should open pits on the reservations. it would show the government how much they could be making. its really simple. have everyone fill out a w-4 at the beggining of every year like you would a regular job. then at the end of the year you get a 1099. at every derby they take 10\% off the top of the entry fee and then that way they get paid twice. its just so easy even a caveman can do it

3639. Brock Page

think of the farmers. the feed they grow. the money it would bring in for our country

3638. Brock

by doing this millions will be made for business and will bring back the United States out of turmoil

Doug Miller Game Cocks are born with the instinct to fight. This is not something you can train these beautiful creatures to do. In the wild only the strongest survive and go on to produce hardier offspring that are less susceptible to disease. The Game Cock wants to fight another Game Cock to show the other that he is the most dominant. If they weren’t we need this

meant to fight then they wouldn’t. God made them that way so let them do what they want to do. Let them fight! 3365. Donnie Carter 3364. Justin Cockfighting is a Sport of Kings and NOT a blood sport.

Personally against cockfighting, but I don’t think it’s anymore inhumane than HSUS killing birds or Tyson foods farming practices. Do people think chicken meat just appears in your grocery store? Raise your own eggs and chicken and see how cruel tha animal world really is,

For example, if the purse is 1000 or 10000, the winner will pay taxes. Because that’s why they ban it. The lawyers should go and tell them will are willing to buy licence to fight roosters like fisher men. this money will help the economy and both of us will be happy. Cockfighting is a culture but I am willing to pay a yearly licence to fight roosters. imagine how much money will each state will get if they legalize cockfighting. Each state will get money from each licence and 10\% of cockfighting should be legalized let freedom ring this will help our economy in U.S by creating new jobs It’s a true gentlemans sport. It’s a true gentlemans sport. …….. cock fighting should not be against the law!!!!!

the purse. Think about? Congress will consider if we petition this idea they could even test it for one year and if it doesn’t work then ban it. 3242. Raul Chavez 3241.

Anyone who thinks otherwise then I propose a challenge. I give you a mother hen and some baby chicks. You raise them and see if the roosters dont eventually fight til the death on they’re own. Also, whoever started this group, then please get a hold of me because I too am from WV and I really want to help my favorite sport become legal. This would be huge for our states economy as well as saving a sport thats been passed down from my ancestors. 3221. Josue Rodriguez 3220. jesse garcia i raise chickens and love them like u wouldn’t believe ,still ilove to see them in battle and they fight because they want to. if we train gamefowl to fight i want to see someone to train a cock how not to fight!!! 3219. Shawn Rorrer I think if they tax cockfighting it would bring in a lot of needed money for this country. Whats the diffrence between two men in a ring beating the crap out of each other compared to roosters doing the same thing? Theres no difference at all! 3218. Dustin Hall 3217. crystal martin I been rasing chickens since 1994 have been a long time cockfighter and believe that the government would not have such an issue with the matter if they could regulate revenue after all was it not this very reason that they sicked the animal rights activists on us 3216.

Martin Torres where are all our freedoms going its more cruel what they do to the chickens we eat i approve of rooster fighting, they are created for fighting. If you were to put two chickens outside a couple a feet away from each other, and as soon as they see each other they will fight to the death untill one of them runs .Both of them would die ,two roosters can’t live with each other not even if they were related they would still kill each other. 3190. Jose Luis Torres I love my roosters and hen, and I approve of game cock fighting. Why do ya kill chickens for kfc ? Its like the same thing but the chickens you kill can’t defend themselves but ours can ! 3189. Michael R Johnson God created all things, animals,even the fowl of the air and put man in charge of them. If you don’t believe read your Bible.So therefore I think cock fighting sould be legalized. The gamefowl only missed by 1 vote becoming the American symbol. It is a beautiful fowl in its likeness. (Religious believers). I saw on TV the other night 2 men fighting on an ultimate fighting adventure and it was legal and on TV but there is big We should legalize cockfighting in the US, but without knifes.

money involved in it and it was ok, therefore I think cockfighting should be legalized and the monies used and be taxed. and the revenue goes for paying taxes. 3188. Steve Decker 3187. Dan Stitt 3186. Robert Adams 3185. Jacob Wright im even more of a redneck im a redneck Long live the gamecock Its a sad day when you can drive by a broiler farm where they raise chickens in the poorest conditions, and that is legal, but cockfighting is banned. These birds recieve the best treatment, and happiest lives. This sport is a part of my heritage all the way back to immigration. It’s sad it will fade away. 3184.

Selena Thompson I believe that if people would like to have cockfights, I think they should. It’s what they love to do and for some of the men it is all they know. Why should we take that from them? One should look into the lives of these familys and see how much cockfighting is apart of the life. 3172. Bobby Jason Barley Ive not raised fighting cocks in 10 years, but I think about it all the time. My father loved it and his father loved it and his fathers before. They say its okay to be gay its okay for humans to fight they even say its okay to kill a unborn child but its not okay to let roosters be themselves. I was raised to treat my birds with respect and to give to them even if I had to do without. Who has the right to tell me right from wrong other than god. Everyone who loves there history and country should stand togather for there rights. BRING THE SPORT OF KINGS BACK. 3171. Steven Crews 3170. Homero Lopez It’s about time Gamecocks aren’t trained to fight or be agressive. It’s in thier blood and comes natural to them. If made legal , by all means … Tax the hell out of it. Im allmost positive , thier isn’t a cocker out thier that would have a problem with paying thier dues. In exchange we ask that you leave us alone and let us enjoy our birds. 3169.

3161. floyd merriman 3160. Aaron Andress 3159. Ruben Castellanos Long Live Tradition I think it to be the saddest thing when the cultures of our people are being taken away from us by these corporations that kill thousands of animals per day and consider themselves animal protectors. They are so asanine asking people for donations so that they can euthenize 600 birds in one location and regarding our birds as too agressive. It’s depressing to see how bad our economy is in California and to realize that there’s a multi-million dollar solution right in front of their faces and yet all they do is make laws that impede people like me from geting out of the recession were in. Well hopefully our customes don’t end up being squashed under so many laws. Good luck and thank u for keeping the fight. I know me and all my fellow breeders will keep fighting these California laws. 3158. sean wright 3157. james feigl 3156. Andres Torres 3155. Donald McCandless 3154. Roger Arellano 3153.

Diane Jessup While watching chickens kill each other is not my idea of a good time, as an animal lover and 20+ years animal control officer, I feel that fighting cocks live an extremely humane life up to the point they are pitted.

Brain Yates Its funny how a group of peaple can pass laws on something they never attended or not know anything about and lead peaple wrong, saying that we train/make a rooster to fight i mean realy what we gona do talk to them and threaten them. And for them thats what they would rather do than anything else. Its their nature and thier gona fight regardless its all someone can do just to keep them apart. And the goverment could make a killing off rooster pits on taxes and all the gas spent going there hotel renting or make there be a licens and charge $100 a permit . Millions of dallars could be made and if everyone signed this petition it would be way up in the millions. 3026. Keith Yates 3025. Gabe lester 3024.

Timothy Lester there is nothing wrong with cockfights i have never attended a cock fight. i have owned a small sting of game fowl but only in the past few years. if people can fight in an arena and kill or severely injure each other why can we not allow these birds who fight by nature not by man do what comes natural to them? 3019. shirley lucas 3018. ruben 3017.

Alex Tejeda I do not fight gamefowl, but I don’t see anything wrong with it. If everybody who owned fowl let them be,they would suffer much more than in an organized fight. Many fowl receive better care than most children in the world in my opinion. People who are against this have not experienced it for very long if at all. Like I said, if the gamefowl had their way, they would all become extinct in about a year. Abortion, hunting, boxing, and UFC fights are just a portion of bad things that are tolerated here in the US. Native Americans did it before any white man arrived in the US; why take part of their culture away as well? Legalizing this would also make a great boost in the economy. Many people travel across the world just to see a one day cockfighting event. Thousands of people in the world have died in war even presently. We can take someones life in war, someone who doesn’t want to be killed and taken away from family, but we can’t let two gamecocks battle together willingly? Make the country better. Legalize 3012. estevan orozco if u don’t like the sport stay away from it. stop trying to make it your business. 3011. Carlos La Luz Its a free country same as 3013 same as 3013

Lesa Gambrel I see nothing wrong with cock fighting, I”ve been around it many years. Regardless if its done in the pit or in the front yard or regardless if someone is even handling the cocks, they will fight. I don’t see it as animal cruelty, especially when the only purpose for these types of chickens are to fight. If you ask me its the chickens that we eat everyday and their living and dying situations thats cruel. You stick them in 2X2 cages piled up on one another where if one uses the bathroom the one underneath gets it. These chickens live atleast 2 years before their fought, whereas the chickens we eat int he super market only live a few months before their killed. So what’s inhumane in this situation? Ask yourself. 2958. RAFAEL MARTINEZ 2957. Brian 2956. Anthony 2955. DEREK Please give us our rights back as good up standing, tax paying, free, american citizens. 2954. Roger Choate 2953.

no one is hurt by the legalization of cockfights

I grew up with my family fighting roosters.I think we have a right to our traditions.If people dont like it well stay away from it.When they take roosters away from cockers they end up putting them too sleep anyways.So they arent so diffrent,we do it for a sport.Why do they put them too sleep??

It’s in their blood by nature. On the other hand the United States of America considers this as cruelty to animals but what happens when they seize these roosters from their owners? They euthanize them, that’s cruelty to animals. They should just let them fight in that case they should banned UFC fighting that’s cruelty to humans but it’s entertaining the same with cockfighting it’s just like any other sport. 2771. Tim Ladner I will forward this petition to everyone i know LEGALIZE IT legalize cockfighting hi eddie Go Cock Figthing

2770. josh v

we aren’t criminals, we are being made criminals by hsus and other groups who don’t “like” our way of life. It is our birds natural instinct to fight, and we are made criminals for it. Why are women who are killing their unborn babies not made criminals if a human is a higher being than any pet or animal according to the bible? Legalize cockfighting and see how it will help the ecomomy.

Jimmy Urmama 2748. Carlos Diaz Soler they are taking away our rights These Kind of Particular Roosters are born to fight. It’s on their nature to fight. God gave them this unique instinct. They only fight other cockfighter roosters. Otherwise the interest for these unique animals will dissapear and they will be extincted from the phase of the earth. Why not preserved them as they are borned for: Cockfighting roosters? 2747.

Reason: They felt it was unlong live the redfoxx Legalize the sport and all will benefit let us help the economy why can the gov. raise lab rats to do experiments and be ok whit it.

fit to have the most highly reguarded and respected people in the history of this country as breeders, participants, and lovers of this sport….then in the same breath if air say “only scum-bags and illegal immigrants approve of that sport”.

if they can kill a chicken,if they can eat a chicken,why no cockfighting? in tradition, the loser gets eaten anyway. cock fighting in my eyes is very human,. and it’s a family tradition that we stoped when coming to the U.S they should make some type of I.D for cockfighters and tax us like $30 a month or somthing since the government loves to take our money. this is a great way for them to make some. lol. there isnt a problem with cockfight. its a symbol and tradition.

I think Cockfighting should be legalized because its a tradition passed down threw thousands of year and i don’t think it should be ilegall. ITS A TRADITION. You gyz should be worried about all the serious problems like the war an economy,not people following a tradition they have a passion for.

Philip Ownby Please consider that there are others ways of life besides folks that live in huge metropolis areas. We in the rural areas still live what I think is the American dream. Cockfighting is not the horrible thing that the HSUS and PETA have made it out to be. These birds are a part of history and we as Americans deserve the right to continue breeding and testing them. Just because a group of so called “do gooders” don’t agree with our way of life does not give them the right to take away our priviledges as Americans. Please reconsider reversing the laws that have passed that are persecuting Gamefowl enthusiasts like myself and all the other fine gentlemen/ladies that have signed this petition. do it Freedom!!!!!!!!

2585.

Richard b Franklin 2580. mike ruan i wont my freaken rights back! legalize cock fighting in the us! i was born in to this sport i could remmber as a child spending time with my dad and those were the best days of my life and now that i do the same with my son now these days are now the best of my life. i can also say coming from compton ca there was alot of bad stuff going on around me but taking care of 150 game birds kept my out of trouble . 2579. athony cashen 2578. Al Sogo as a tax paying and voting citizen should i be deprieved my rights obviously the humane society obviously don’t know anything about raising these awesome birds that’s why they don’t legalize it. If they engage in this fowl maybe they will change their mind of not legalizing this sport. I will say this birds are born protect their own territory and they risk their lives to protect it. in the wild only the best male can live. just like any other territorial animals. Those who engage in this sports they spend a lot of money to take good care of them! and if the humane society saying it’s cruel the answer is not. If our fowl was killed in the battle we feel the pain too because we take good care of them for years! the fighting is an art just like martial arts in human they have their own style of ighting and why we are amazed on them. 2577. barbara rushing 2576. warner keith rushing 2575. trey 2574.

Tommy 2570. joe F*** Animal Rights,they should leave us alone.

legalize cockfighting in MA

Dont attack an American Heritage. Dont make criminals out of good hard working americans. Dont destroy a great american passtime. HSUS and PETA should be the ones in trouble look at what they have done and what they are attacking besides cockfighting such as rodeos and hunting.

Now that is an issue they should get outraged over! 2478. James Craig Bass Cock fighting should be legal. Some of our presidents fought bamefowl so why can’t we do the same. If you don’t want to fight them don’t own them. If you don’t want to see them fight don’t go to a fight. But don’t tell us we can’t fight them. This is taking away one of the many priveleges that other people have taken from us.We raise take care of the fowl bought them so why is it any of their business. 2477.

Our founders had grit, were tough and did not whince at the squeal of hog, squawk of a chicken. By the Power above animals and fowl were placed here for mankind !! A gamecock fights for its territory and breeding rights in a noble admirable display of courage,gameness and will. Therefore I say, where would this Country be without “Fignting Men” who put their lives on the line to protect our Homeland and Families. Now we have people who are weak minded,gutless, spinless, pathetic examples of an American that made this country so great !!

Is allowing a chicken to fight which is it’s own will (see red jungle fowl – wild chickens) any worse than sending humans to war? Why are you clogging the legal system with this nonsence when crimes against humans continue – how insulting to the victims. How does a woman feel when she is bashed by her husband…. when she sees a man fighting a chicken get a greater sentence? You can use the extra taxes to help hospitals, education or donations to starving children. Go and learn about the nature of gamefowl, and the importance of them to those who are trying to preserve the breeds in honour of their history. Look at how well the good breeders care for them then compare that to the broiler industry. And get you’re priorities straight. 2371. andres 2370. ISRAEL Legalize it for everybody!

It’s about determination and unwaivering courage matched with a will to win without fear. The game cock inspires those who witnesses it’s gloryuos dance with death. There have been stories written about men with poetic candar for thousands of years who did no more in battle than the average gamecock. I agree that cockfighting is not a sport for the weak but in the end every one knows even though we often deny it only the strong survive. Don’t deny the glory of these magnificant animals to be witnessed in awe.

Cokfighting should be as leagal as when two men fight in a boxing ring or wrestling match or soldiers in combat my point is peopl die every day from ourselves and other people that’s why it should be leagle it’s not any different. Besides chickens are just small dumb animals if you don’t like them then good you don’t have to just let us have our own fun and leave cockfighters alone on what we want to do.

2259. Edward Manis 2258. Victor Alfonso Juarez cockfighting is a beautiful sport yall would see if yall would only give it a chance it could maybe become an olimpic sport one day so please just think bout it 2257. Jesus Flores 2256. WIllie D Roberts 2255. Sheldon I belive that if a farmer grows a crop and sells the crop and makes a profit it is the same with a gamecock. So my theory is if a cocker raises a biddie into a cock he should be able to place money on him and it not be considered gambling 2254. Jeremy Havard I wonder what happens to all those confinscated birds? This petition sums it up, game chickens are (game) why try to prevent it and make another species extinct!!! 2253. RIck Moses 2252. Ken Raymer Cockfighting is our heritage, and to not look at it that way is wrong!! Cockfighting is a tradition in the United States just like football on Thanksgiving day. The government should not be able to ban rights that are not affecting other people. 2251. horacio 2250.

Native americans and other ethics had these fights for years before hite men and women started to cross the sea to this land. To say that its inhuman or is salvage is to tsay these culters are and that would be unamerican. 2241. Carl Goldsmith 2240. amanda desire’e wells I think that cock fighting should be legal ! We pay the government taxes if we purchase these roosters we should be allowed to do as we wish !! It’s been going on for years all around the world not just in the US and nothing has ever been said until now !! Why? just because of dog fighting this is completely different and should not be veiwed as animal !! What’s the differance if you have two roosters in the yard at the same time what’s gonna happen ? they’ll fight till death !! It’s there nature !!! 2239. John Still 2238.

James Rowe 2227. tommy bruce no matter if cockfighting is legalized or not the spirit of the sport will never be broken.we dont make them fight they were born to.so if the gamecock lost to the american eagle by one vote why stop such an old not only american but national heritage now. 2226. brian collett 2225. Richard adams 2224. Mike Wood 2223. Tyler Ommen I don’t understand why the government values the lives of animals more than the lives of humans.

This is the land of the free. 2206. james feigel 2205. Jaitton Balcom 2204. Jaitton Balcom is a sport same as any other.

CHRIS please continue to force the issue of getting cockfighting legal again. COCKFIGHTING IS A GREAT SPORT AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT AWAY. ARE DOING MORE BAD THAN GOOD BECAUSE ITS AWAYS EASY TO LOOK AT THE BAD THINGS NOT THE GOOD. SO PLEASE DONT TAKE THIS SPORT AWAY DONT SHOW PEOPLE THAT EVEN A LITTLE OF FREEDOM CAN BE TAKING AWAY. FREEDOM IS WHAT MAKES THE U.S. 2194. edie 2193. Woody Prosperie Cockfighting has taught me that there are consequences to violence. If more children were raised in a cockfighting family maybe they would realize this and conform to the norm.. At 20 years of age, I had considered joining our military service to fight to protect our way of life. However since cockfighting has been made illegal in my home state of Louisiana, I can’t justify killing a man if killing a chicken is a crime. Let the parents of the ARA, PETA & HSUS send their children off to war to protect their way of life. I will stay home to fight for my rights. Why would a person consider fighting for a country that places more value on a chickens life than that of their youth?????? 2192. Mr. & Mrs. Tony Prosperie Apparently a large portion of our politicians & their constituents support a war with Iraq & believe that it is alright to fight our youth overseas in order to save 5 cents on a barrel of oil, but these same war mongers would turn a person into a criminal for fighting a rooster. Where’s the rub? We have elected too many women & soft hearted men to political office? VOTE THEM OUT! ! ! Bring cockfighting back to the USA where a person used to be endowed with the right to life, liberty & the persuit of happiness!! Go to GENISIS in your Bible I believe the good lord gave us dominion over all of his creations & gave us the intelligence & ability to manipulate these creatures to suit our purposes. Let God decide my fate upon my death, not some court of law created by man. The world is too harsh of a place to allow the MEEK to set the standards that men should abide by. Man’s law will never superceed Gods wrath if I’m wrong! ! ! ! 2191. Dale Cockfighting is a wonderful family sport, It is time to stop making outlaws of the taxpayers of this nation. 2190.

Doiran Lominchar I am for legalizing cockfighting not only in the US but in the state of Louisiana as well. LA was one of the last staes that permitted “cockfighting” and they are passing a bill to congress to stop it/ Change is not always for the better. This sport has been around for centuries, if the government wants an involvement in this sport they should regulate it, not ban it. In Puerto Rico it is legal, and Puerto Rico is US property, they generate thousands of dollars from tourists and people who love this sport but they can not legalize it hear? If it was propisitioned well and successfully everyone could benefit from this sport. 2163. JAMES YOUNG 2162. Glen Young 2161.

Joe Dirt That’s what “GAME COCKS” are breed for. You can’t eat them!!!!! legalize cockfighting please i love cockfighting they need to legalize it in the U.S. Live Long the Gamecock!

So for the first time in my life I bought my first game chickens. I remembered my family always having them .I now own so of the most sought after breeds in georgia . What a honer an a task to r aise them right. I now am 40 years old an in my life I have seen alot of things come and go. Most of them to the middle class white male just how much more of this do you think we can take. taxes ,gas prices, hunting rights, the right to bear arms, to envasion of aliens {not to say every man should have the right to do the best he can} but it’s the way the government handled it come on give me a brake. just like the war as a north Ga. country boy L support it 110\%, enought is enought!!!!! 2146. Guy Koch 2145. Miguel Sotelo I believe this needs to become legal again. I agree to legalize cockfighting, being a game breeder myself it helped me gain more respect for the breed. Cockfighting has been around for many centuries, these birds hatch ready to fight. Cockfighting is enjoyed by all, seeing a bird fight for territory and dominance is enough to give you goosebumps. To legalize cockfighting will increase the revenue for a state, as well as crack down on drugs. Yes that is correct, many politicians say cockfighting is centered around drug dealers, but what sport doesnt have a drug dealer or “performance enhacing” drugs….theyre every where. but if made legal underground cockfightin will decrease limiting the sellers clients. 2144. carlos j ruiz 2143. jackie dean 2142. daniel dean 2141.

“Keep Cockfighting Legal” IF EACH PIT WOULD JUST AGREE TO LET 15\% OF THE DOOR FEE GO FOR TAXES, AND EVERY COCKER AGREE TO LET GO 15\% OF THE POT GO TO TAXES WE COULD MAKE IT LEGAL. If the president of the U.S. wre to raise game chicken on the front lawn of the white house, i mean 1 cock and about 5 hens, and just let them run loose, he would understand the way of the gamecock when the offsrings turn game. Even with the naked heel the spurs will be sharp, and gouge each others eyes out, and cut each other to death. Then they would really understand the way of cockfighting.

I think that if cockfightig was taxabe it would be legal.

whats next deerhunting snagging season??help!!! PETA, what a joke. It is all about money to them. Leagalize our sport and leave us alone. Probably they have never seen a cock fight as their views would change. They are wrong about cruelty to animals at the hands of game cockers. We love our fowl and take verey good care of them. Better than a lot of people take care of their children. It is my God givin right and I will continue to do what I love!!!!

1947. Blake Bates 1946. Anthony Bates JR

MAKE IT LEGAL. IT IS OUR SPORT. I am 14 yrs old. My dad and I have several gamecocks and hens. We spend hours together caring for our fowl. I have many memories of growing up around our gamefowl. A lot of my friends dads do not spend quality time with them and they get into some trouble. I do not as my dad and I have something that connects us. As did his dad and he all of his life. I do not understand. So many millions of animals are slaughter everyday to feed the ones who oppose what is heritage. Chickens in chicken houses are feed all kinds of bad things to grow fast to be killed fast for us to eat. Our chickens live long healthy lives receiving only the best feed,accomadations and care. All I am saying is it is an Americans right to fight his chicken if he so chooses. My dad is in the military and I could loose him while he is protecting freedom in some foreign land only to have mine,his and everyother American who wants to participate in the cock fighting sport stripped away. Doesn’t sound like freedom to me, does it to you?

1945. Anthony Bates

We can kill them for eating purposes however we choose. We can kill them only to remove their feathers and waste the rest. I own game fowl and I always hear how you must train them to fight and kill each other. I do not train mine to fight. There is no need for anyone to assume that they must be made to fight. The people putting down the sport of cock fighting could better spend their time protecting the children in America who are physically,mentally,sexually abused or who go to bed hungry every night. What a shame! The people against cock fighting should be thanking the cockfighter for being more humane by placing the gaffs or knives on the roosters for a quick outcome than gamefowl running loose naturally which would be involved in a fight naked heel until death, which would last for several hours. That is natures way of only the best surviving to breed. If they ever figure out a way to collect the taxes and monies from the pits it will be legal.How many babies were aborted today?!!!!

1944. larry j. gallien 1943. Michael Mundy The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act – S3880. Look it up in the Department of Justice Laws. One individual was told repeatedly that it wouldn’t help us because of legislation. It’s a federal law!! This person

was also told to keep his mouth shut about it. (hmmm…) He pointed out things that Peta and HSUS were doing and was told “What you said about P.E.T.A. and HSUS makes them a terrorist organization.” in which the FBI has already declared them to be America’s number one terrorist. Through their actions they have broken the law S3880 through CONSPIRACY, INTIMIDATION through news media, along with harrassment of animal enterprise. They have broken this law in New Mexico and are breaking it again in Louisiana. They are tying to ammend this law with S261 and Hr137, if they succeed it will make the S3880 worthless. Why is the law S3880 not being enforced? Laws were put into place to protect law abiding American citizens. Not private interest groups that focus only on taking away our rights. 1942.

Alberto ceja jr Game Fowl have been a part of American culture ever since America was born.Our founding fathers were involved in this great sport.How is it posible that a group of so called animal protecters are trying to eliminate the game cock?In some states it is a feloney to own game fowl.So what happens if you get cought owning game fowl in one of these states?They take them away and euthanas them in other words they kill them.now how is that right,how is that humane,how is that legal.chickens fight because its a natural to them.Its natural to every single animal.Turn on the t.v.to the discovery channel and see what happens,they hunt,they fight and kill each other.Theres more important things in this world than cockfighting. 1928. Richard Ayson 1927. James Arrington 1926. Rod Biggs We need America Back long live the gamecock Game Fowl have a right to survive. Their eggs are small and not a lot of meat, they survive because of cockfighting. In the wild the birds as they turn game around 11 or 12 months old will each fight with their father until they are killed or he is killed. The fights can last for hours or days not a matter of minutes like in our cockfighting sport. Another thing the ones that fight and win are given the best of food and environment and usually along with several hens. 400 fowl were taken from a cockfight in Eastern KY because it was in human to have them at a cockfight. These birds were collected and put to death. 1925. Rosa Reynoso Let us keep our culture! Let us live our lives! This is something the whole family does. 1924. Rodolfo Reynoso 1923.

Rowdy Albers HELP FIND A WAY TO TAX THE SPORT i love this sport and the ONLY way to keep it legal is if there would be some way to tax the sport, make us cockfighters have to pay some sort of tax that way THE GOVERMENT would get there money like they want and they would leave us alone. Everything else is taxed like hunting, fishing, bingo, casinos. If we would stick together and fight this to the end we could find a way to tax cockfighting and the goverment would NEVER make it illegal. HELP FIND A WAY TO TAX COCKFIGHTING FAST. 1913. Amber Albers i have done this all me life, my parents life, my grandparnets life so dont tell me i have to stop the most imporant thing in my life, help us to keep cockfighting legal 1912. hank aguirre usmc-vet ,I believe that if young americans can be sent to a another countrry yo fight and die for for the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness we should be able to enjoy our sport of choice.Im pretty sure ther are some New Mexico cockfighters that are fighting in irac thinking that when they get home they will be able to participate in thier sport only to be slapped in the face by a law that puts good people in the catagory of rapists,child molesters,drug dealers etc.That is the tip of the iceburg.The economy will suffer from the grain farmers to the restaurants in these towns that survive because of the cockfighting.Just ask Oklahoma & Arizona .As much as this sport is Hispanic heritage it is also American.What is being pushed by peta is not saving the gamecock but driving them into extiction and we are doing owr part in preventing peta from killing off this very special breed of chickens that demonstrated courage that our forefathers admired. 1911. Richard H. Williams Re-legalize cockfighting in America. Why do we even bother to prohibit cameras in our pits if we are going to allow these activist idiots to get away with using incriminating and misleading videos and pictures of the sport in other countries against us? These videos are from different cultures and different methods of competition. We need to utilize all the membership money collected and pit owners charge an additional $5.00 per person at the door for an aggressive legal “attack”. Sunset alone could generate 10,000 to 15,000 dollars per event. Not to mention all the other pits. Good lawyers can pick them apart……or we could use the prolong the misery “DEFENSE” method that has proved to not work at all. It’s time we try something different don’t you think ! I’m not sure how a private interest group could have soo much influence and power over our law makers anyway…..hmmmm sounds fishy to me. Nobody’s gonna care enough to do something extreme until it’s legally abolished and then….TOO LATE !!!!!! 1910. Elisibeth Jones Re-legalize cockfighting in America. How long are we going to allow the animal activists to commit countless acts of slander against us? We need to stop focusing on the defense….and start thinking about a counter attack on these crazy people groups that are destoying our legal businesses, taking food off our tables. The defense method JUST DOESN’T SEEM TO WORK …….DOES IT ? it never has and obviously never will. We need somone that knows the steps to take and the people to contact to organize an offense to hit these hypocritt jackasses where it hurts. That’s not to mention they intentionally misinform the general public with the most awfull videos and pictures they could find….these videos and pictures aren’t even from this country and don’t reflect how things are done here. They simply count on people not knowing any better…..it’s misleading intentionally, it’s Ive fought for this country for 20yrs

dishonest, and we have to prosecute those responsible for their careless wrong doings against the American people. 1909. James Mundy Re-legalize cockfighting. I thought this was a free country….sure doesn’t seem like it. Why is the government telling me what I can and cannot do with my own personal livestock anyway? Our roosters don’t effect anyone that doesn’t want to be involved with them, and the more people that learn about this sport the less people there are against the sport. 1908. billy rubal American sensitivity to government intervention in personal lives, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal Damage Control (ADC) program spent nearly $30 million in federal funds and $15 million in state monies “to kill mammals and birds considered predators or pests.” Anti-hunting lobbyists reported the same year that hunters, only 7\% of the population, killed some 200 million birds and animals, most on public lands. Why aren’t opponents fiercely attacking the wealthy sport fishermen who torture a marlin for four or five hours? “Factory breeding” of fetal pigs and cats for laboratories and some 100 million frogs for America’s high school biology classes of the 1960s fed an insatiable experimentation on life forms. With such a hemorrhage on the landscape and in the water, why, asks an advocate of cockfighting, should legislators be concerned about evenly matched competition, where there is a chance for survival of the fittest, among gamecocks? 1907. jacky keith 1906. wayne keith 1905. trunguy 1904. alvie ward 1903.

This is a free Country, in case you people of Congress have forgot. It seems you speak and do for yours selves rather than do for the peole as you were appointed to do! Let Me remind you that you are there to represent the word of the people, not your own little dreams. I believe that every State should have their own all out ballet Vote on the Sport of Cock Fighting and let the peoples right to vote deceide the will of the people not you over paid by our tax dollars people in Congress! Sorry just my thoughts!

help keep our rights!!!! The same as my husbands feelings We have given up nearly every thing this country has ask of us wehave given our fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts, cousins, blood, sweat, tears, time, money, dreams, energy and most important our prayers to keep our nation free so individuals have their GOD given rights as citizens. WHAT is happening ? the people are being strangled by laws of choice being forced on them by a socialistic liberal group in order to force into living the way THEY think we ought to. Way to much BLOOD has been shed for our individual freedoms & rights where oh where has the land of the FREE home of the BRAVE gone .corrupt and spineless officials will make a corrupt and spineless nation given time. Come congressmen/women , senators stand on your OWN two feet and vote for the GOOD of the people NOT what the other members will think of you and how it will effect your standings at the next social event.

i love gamefowl thank you mike Legalize Cockfighting we need this for our country I support the petition with all my heart.

is it really ok for people to fight but not chickens?

Re-legalize cockfighting. Everyone that eats chicken supports the slaughtering of 22 million chickens a day here in America. That’s something that people like to ignore, or avoid the thought of. While they’re eating their chicken salads, they will sit around and criticize others on topics of : the use of animals by humans and the killing of animals by humans when they themselves are the reason for all these chickens are having their heads chopped off. Cockfighting doesn’t result in even a fraction of a percent of the amount killed for chicken salads. I guess as long as they get their belly full and what ever pops up on a ballot doesn’t effect them or their favorite sport or family tradition, then they’re happy to vote out someone else’s sport or tradition. If we could only get half of the people that eat chicken to realize what hypocrites they have been all this time, we might get this re-legalized.

1869. M. R. Mundy

Re-legalize cockfighting in America. 22 million chickens have their heads chopped off everyday here in America. Those chickens only get to live 2 or 3 months before they face the chopping block, after being fed the “mystery feed” and raised in pen about the size of a toaster. The game rooster lives a minimum of 2 years, being fed the best grains available, the best alfalfa, the best fruits and vegitables, the best all around diets and fresh water daily. Not to mention the medicines and vaccines that promote a healthy rooster. Being raised on some of the

nicest farms anyone has ever seen. “These” roosters are given the chance to prove their worth and possibly never face the chopping block, or end up in anyones crockpot. Which one sounds more humane ? I know which chicken I’d rather be ! The double standard crap has got to stop !! 1868. Dixie Mundy Re-leagalize cockfighting in America. Cockfighting is a respectable sport , that is by far the most misunderstood sport of all time. Everyone I have ever talked to believes that these roosters would not kill one another if someone hadn’t trimmed down their natural spurs and replaced it with a steel spur or knife. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH . You have the same end result if a rooster breaks his tie cord at home while you are away, except he will kill two or three other roosters with his natural spurs, until he is killed or until someone realizes what has happened and stops him. There is soo much more to this sport than just the fighting part anyway. The name alone is simply “CHARGED” with emotion. Soo many people have been mis-informed about the sport. 1867. mike 1866. joseph 1865. Daniel Carreon 1864.

Jongi Ledbetter 1827. scott hollis 1826. Amiee Mundy Hoorah America i think we should be able to keep the rights we were given NOBODY can make these roosters fight. You spend 365 days a year keeping them from fighting and killing each other at home with their natural spurs that mother nature gave them to kill with, their spurs have absolutely no other purpose. As far as trimming the natural spurs down and mounting the steel spurs or knife goes, that only makes the fight equal to both roosters, because every rooster’s spurs don’t grow equally. By “LETTING” the roosters fight with the steel spur the fights don’t usually last as long , and is by far less brutal than the way nature intended. Believe it or not , some people actually believe that these roosters would not kill each other if someone hadn’t tied a knives on them…That’s ridiculous. I’ll tell you something else that’s ridiculous….It’s perfectly legal and acceptable for me to grab a rooster and chop his head off and eat him, but it’s not ok for me to allow him the privilage of fighting. NOW THAT’S RIDICULOUS. 1825. juan 1824. Glenn Griffis 1823. Fuechyv Vang this game has been around for centuries and has become a tradition and to ban the game isnt right. 1822. Lana Derr 1821. Tommy Christy 1820. jerry delong 1819. bruce bush 1818. Dustin I think that this sport is stupid how do u think the chickens feel i should put you in a ring with blades on your hands and make u fight and get killed 1817. brianna mcdougald 1816. Carol Torree stop texas bills from being passed!!! This is something for the government to think about. To legalize cockfighting would allow collection of revenue so urgently needed. Instead of continous raising of individual taxes, why don’t the government find a way to collect taxes from pit operators and participants. If one understands the history of our country, whiskey and tabacco was illegal until the government figured a way to collect taxes. Now what about cockfighting. It is natural for two cocks to fight just as two fighting fish would fight. If it the gambling, what about the gambling you folks partake on the golf tees. Now if your thinking cruelty to animals, sending our young to war to protect people that don’t want cockfighting is not a crime, it’s a family tradition Our founding fathers did it so should we its for life! this is a great sport i truly love it!!! we need more people,keep up the good work sad day when peta lobbies away our freedom

nothing to do with us is more cruel. Think about it, Respectfully, Carol Torree 1815. david it would make lots of money for our goverment to use like helping restore social security for the future 1814. DEREK YELTON 1813. James 1812. Rick P 1811. Dylan Mundy LEGALIZE, IT’S OUR HERITAGE i say legalize it i mean it’s a sport Time to save a national heritage Re-legalize cockfighting. Preset a mandatory tax added on to every entry fee at every derby at every pit, also tax every spectator ticket , every hambuger, etc. That would result in tens of millions of tax dollars per year for each state that re-legalized the sport. Alot of people don’t realize how big this sport really is, and still getting bigger. Could you imagine how big this sport would be if it were openly legal and the pit owners were able to advertise big derbies and upcoming events in newspapers and radio, even television ? As it is , people fill the pits to the ceilings…even in illegal states. Could you imagine the amount of spectators and competitors that would be generated through simply informing people that have been misinformed of the sport or people that have never heard of it ? The amount of people involved that love these roosters and love this sport would be x100 of what it is today. The amount of tax dollars that would be generated would be millions on top of millions for every state. 1810. Steve Cannon 1809. Paula Burgess 1808. Roger L. Croll 1807. hatchman 1806.

Jaqueline Knight My daddy, his daddy, and his dad was raising game chickens since the late 1800s now my husband, son,daughter, nephew, and greatgrand son all carry on the bloodlines of such a humble respectible sport. 1800. Donna Dean My family has been around gamecocks as far back as the civil war. And it just so happens that Abraham Lincoln got honest Abe from being a referree. 1799. Daniel Dean If you consider what Abraham Lincoln one of the fore fathers of America, then you could maybe Martin Van Buren or George Washington. But look at what these great men like Thomas Edison has done and they were against war and hurting people but they could make since that this was a natural act of nature. Even more so then coondogs, beagles, or even hunting. God doesn’t give us guns but he gave roosters spurs. Think of that one for a minute, Americas finest 1798. Va Pheng Vang 1797. Eric Edwards 1796.

yes yes yes its time

legalize It is my GOD given right. To abolish it would end the life of a gamecock for ever. He would be gone as the prehistoric animals have vanished. Nothing more beautiful than a true gamecock. Losing our young men in War is acceptable, They not only lose their lives but their arms, legs, eyes, hands, speach and suffer so mentally for ever and ever and yet this is socially accepeted. Tell me what is the difference? The Gamecock is fighting for the same rights , just to exist…..

1788. Zaheed Hussain 1787. Cecil 1786. Jason 1785. M. Mundy NO MORE FREEDOM CHOKING PETA AND HSUS The name ” Cockfighting ” is one of our biggest challenges. The name alone is CHARGED with negative emotion to those people that really don’t know anything about the sport , except for the fighting part. Most people don’t realize that the act of fighting of the roosters is actually a very small part of the whole rooster buisiness. It’s an important part , but still a very small part. I think if we really want to preserve this sport and keep it legal in the states that it is still legal in , we need to petition to have the legal name CHANGED ON THE BALLOT to something that actually describes the sport , and doesn’t automatically subject us to slander and misunderstanding of what the sport is really about. That may sound unrealistic, but it really isn’t. People have legal names changed all the time, if an item is going to be on a ballot for the general public to vote on. The humane society and other other crazy people groups would come unglued. Knowing thats their best weapon. 1784.

We get out and my kids are outside as well as myself. We spend a great deal of time with these birds. At least my kids aren’t inside the house all day long watching cartoons or playing games. If loving this sport makes me and mine wrong then what makes us right. How can a sport that draws a family together be so wrong? 1764. Bee Thao 1763. keng lor 1762. Michael Mundy As long as we feel its ok to publically kill other HUMAN BEINGS when we’re at war for a cause like protecting our territory or removing any possible threats to us or our territory and showing our dominance over other nations, and being proud of that, how can we condemn a sport that displays the EXACT same qualities ?? It’s a shame that we felt the need back in the year 1920 to start changing, removing, editing the true american history. This sport defines who we are as a nation ! We are dominant, we are willing to fight for our territory, and we eliminate all threats. That why the gamerooster was nominated to represent the United States of America as our national bird, along with the bald eagle and wild turkey. The bald eagle received the last deciding vote. We were one vote shy of becoming the fighting gamecocks as a nation.

We need to capitalize on this sport and allow legal pits for testing to be operated and revenue collected. As Whiskey and Tabacco was it was illegal until the lawmakers discovered a way to collect taxes. Cockfighting is no different, the operators can pay a fee to the State which will enable Federal funding distributed to the state to be reduced.

SIR Please look back the past entertainment of cock fighting,People engaged in this of sport are simple people who want to live in peace. In todays entertainment is so very damaging to the human civilization especially the casino or going to the Bar club looking for fun. How many family turn apart of that kind of entertainment. Why we human being tried to curtail our happiness with nature and allowing the damaging Casino Club Bar to supercedes above all.It is true that cockfighting is a blood sport. But it is a choice as we all all know it is not a felony to eat chicken sold from Walmart and etc.Don’t lislen your both ears to these

Animal Right Activist because these people seeks happiness in going to Casino or Club Bar for entertainment.And they have there own political agenda which is all the time for sale for the high bidder. What I mean their making a business at all.Then is their motive Real??? Why the poor people will be taken off their happiness all the time, Why the poor people has no voice???? 1570.

Wayne Fuller i support this great sport. The loss of Cockfighting in Oklahoma alone has cost the local economies untold milloins of dollars in revenue. Resturants, Motels, Gas Stations, Feed Producers and Sellers not to mention local Department and Clothing Stores have all suffered loss of revenue. A simple tax, collected at each Testing Operation would ease. if not erase. the tax burden on the Local, State and National levels. Education could be a big winner if the funds were used to improve and/or update the current School Systems. 1164. Tony Pierce 1163. robert ofo-ob jr 1162. Tina Blevins hope they dont ban fishing too Animal rights activists spend way to much money to stop so called animal cruelty, then most of the animals they get are killed, so they waste all that money to save them supposedly then they turn around and put them in a gas chamber to breather toxic fumes while they suffer, the goverment should disban the animal rights orginazations and put all the money to good use like feeding the starving or helping the poor in our country. But no they want to bother people with gamefowl who do nothing wrong, all we want to do is raise the best fowl and watch them be the warriors that they are meant to be, but we cant even do that because of the animal rights lunatics. LONG LIVE THE GAMECOCK!!! 1161. Wayne Blevins Legalize our nations and the worlds oldest sport give us back our heritage and what is righfuly ours. 1160. Daniel Rosado Is a sport,as save or better than boxing. What is worst,two birds fighting or a dead boxer from a punch. I go for the bird and invite the boxer to watch! 1159. Marsha Verber 100\% in favor of letting real tax-paying American citizens do something that has been historically one of the greatest sports the world has ever known. The benefits to our country would be enormous and it would provide many states with economic benefits as well. Isn’t it about time our country concentrated on real crimes against our citizens instead of making criminals out of law abiding folks who want to do something that has been done for thousands of years? Especially since the laws against cockfighting have been pushed by special interest groups that spread incredible misinformation in order to get these laws passed. 1158.

Gamefowl suppliers such as feed stores, Vet. stores and stores that sell supplies will have reduced sells and most importantly to you people you will inturn loose alot of tax money. It affects alot of sells: gas, clothing, supplies stores, vet supplies. 1095.

Billy C. Morris nic We as Americans must strive to maintain the very things that make this country as great as it is. One of these things is a little thing called freedom. By outlawing something with such cultural significance to the roots of this country as cockfighting, you have not only robbed this generation but future generations to come, of the culture and heritage that helped to create this nation. We cannot give in to opinions of the few loud mouths living in suburbia who would like to dictate what is best for us. This nation was founded on the backbone of hard working individuals who wanted a place to live life free w/o persecution. If we do not bring back the noble sport of gamefowl we have lost the very essence of what America means. Freedom.

Stepnen L. Corley

Cockfighting is deeply ingrained in much of the American culture. It is not something that a law can simply do away with. America is losing much needed tax dollars, and fathers and sons are missing to much time together. Legalized cockfighting would bring both to our nation.

give us our right to enjoy our favorite sport i love the sport i have done it for years. People say that the sport is cruel but look whats on tv boxeing what is more cruel two roosters fighting or two men fighting you decide. Cockfighting is a sport and a tradition why teach history in school you learn about wars in that subject and our veterans fought for this country our ancestors done it why cant we. One might say this is a FREE COUNTRY what is so free about this country when a human cannot fight the animal that was fought hundreds of years ago. When a cockfight is raided what happens to the birds that have not been fought? The birds are killed,now tell me how cruel that is when two roosters go into the pit to be fought one has the chance to prove that he is best PLEASE LEGALIZE COCKFIGHTING IN THE U.S

Cockfighting isn’t as bad as everyone makes it out to be. It brings in quite a bit of money into our economy. If people don’t like it than they don’t have to worry about it just stay out of it and let us do your thing, we don’t go out complaing because you guys choose not to eat meat or wear leather or those sorts of things. It’s the least you could do, after all you are taking away alot of our hard earnes money foe your so called TAXES.

The reason cockfighting is illegal now is that it is an easy propaganda target for those whose agenda is not against cockfighting per se, but against ALL animal usage. Many of those have been designated “domestic terrorists” by the F.B.I. Look up the Animal Rights Activist groups on the Internet; learn the truth about their agenda.

Paul Osborne kyle floyd DANIEL HERRERA Mikal Neff Rachael Berry cock fighting forever. I feel like it is a shame that we can take things out of our history just because we feel like it crual or unusual. Does this mean that we will soon outlaw things like hunting and keeping pets . Hunting used to be a very popular practice, which still is, that would provide food to your family. Does this also mean that we will all have to stop eating chicken or beef just because we have to kill the animal in order to eat it. That to me is very wrong and should not be allowed. If one person or one group thinks it is wrong they are entitled to their opinion just as much as we are. If they don’t like it, then they do not have to particapate in the practice. But just the same, just becaus you are in power does not give you the right to tell the american people who have freedom in this country or so I thought what we can enjoy as a sport and what we can not. save our rights

All of the people that are so busy spending time and money to try and stop cockfighting, and at the same time our country is being overrun with illegal imagrant, drug dealers, terorrist, child molesters, murders, rapes,and theives. Dont you think that maybe they could use the time and money to stop some of these things. maybe they could use some of the money they would make off of legalizing cockfighting. well atleast that would make sense, but when do these people make sense.

Cockfighting is part of a culture not cruelty We enter our children in sports such as football ,basketball etc. (and they have been killed in there sport) The Government enters our children as young adults in the military by draft. (And give them a bayonnett knife to fight with) And they have been killed. We pit two humans together in a boxing ring to fight , and they have been killed. But we can not put two roosters in a ring. (as a controlled inviroment ) and give them a bayonnett . Gamefowl (chickens) are not trained, They are born with the instinct to fight for their domain and will fight until death just like our soldiers. PLEASE LEGALIZE ROOSTER FIGHTING IN THE LAND OF THE FREE ( USA ).

carl patton Rhonda Lee CHARLES FO. DOOLEY II Ubaldo Alvarez

it makes more sense then eatting them

I would like to say there is a diff. between a rooster and a cock, a rooster can get along with another rooster in a pen with chickens, a cock is breed to fight another cock because it’s in their blood. The sport of cockfighting can bring intertainment and like Arizona, new mexico and louisiana they found a way to tax the sport. So like Nevada legalized gambling because the state can tax the sport, they will be next on the list of legalizing cock fights because money talks.

good the u.s. government has more important things to spend the tax payers money on than cockfighting. the government doesn’t mind giving a young man a gun to go kill people with during war, but yet the same government tells us it is inhumane to fight a rooster to death. what’s wrong with this picture? our president is not the son of God, yet he is trying to change biblical history. the sport of cockfighting has been around since before christ.

Why is it that people have to stick their noses in a matter that doesn’t concern them? I don’t cockfight,, but I do raise gamefowls for a hobby and I have always loved chickens as a kid. I think that if someone wants to fight their cock, let them… It’s their lost! Why should anyone care besides the owner of the cock? I don’t think it’s right that just because a few people dislike an idea, a whole country has to suffer!?!?

me andmy family raise game fowl , you know what none of my 4 children are running the streets. every chick i hatch out has a great sporting chance to live a long and full live and die of natural causes, you think any chick hatched at tyson’s or pilgrims pride farms will have that chance. do you know what happens when the humane society or spca does the game fowl when they get them , they are so concerned about the roosters not getting killed by us that fight them they get them and kill them immediately. they claim it is cruel andthey have a right to live . which what they should state is they have a right to live long enough for us to take so we can put them to death.

Please, if there is any decency in the world, allow a few chickens to fight, it’s a hell of a lot less significant than teenage hussies popping out babies, or prisons filling up with criminals that couldn’t find jobs thanks to their half rate educations.

I think that whatever someone likes to do for sport shouldn’t be opionized at all.Yeah people do things that others don’t like, but c’mon people! its a sport and also a hobby as well if you think about it long enough. People do crazy things everyday of their life, and people critize them for what they do, but most of the time they’ll go right back and do it all over again. But when it comes to chicken fights, like I said, its a sport and a hobby. Yeah people critize it as well, but they still do it. So, I don’t think that cockfighting shouldn’t be banned, for one reason my son loves the chickens and he enjoys all what goes on. So LEGALIZE IT!!!!!!

Lets keep our rights,freedom. We like game fowl. Keep the game cock crowing!!! I love show fowl,or fowl of any kind. People spend more time in jail and are fined heavier than men convicted of rape or drug charges. I served my country to protect my rights and freedoms as well as everyone elses. I feel it is unfair that my rights and freedom are taken away just because a few people that know very little about the sport don’t like it, so theirfore no one should enjoy it. Why dont we start outlawing boxing and football why we are at it. The average Game cock that is raised on a string walk has a 12 foot circle to walk in, a perch, the best of feed, care and love for 2 years before he is asked to go into battle. If the rooster is successfull in battle he will spend the rest of his life out on the walk being loved and having offspring untill he dies a natural death. Chickens raised on poultry farm are crammed into small cages with several others or raised in large poultry houses where you can’t even squeeze one more in. They are put on a high protien diet and slaughtered at 6-8 weeks of age.Now you tell me what’s more inhumane.

let freedom ring my family has fought chickens for many years and I am not legally allowed to carry on a family tradition. If this country was as free as everone said it is then why cant we play one of the oldest and most popular sports in the world cock fighting. Why wast your time arresting someone for playing a sport because the gamecock will fight to the death with or without the help of man. So why not make cockfighting legal and start aresting someone who comits a crime.

Animal Rights Activists should not justify a ban on cockfighting as barbaric and cruel activities. Their preconceived notions, exagerated and manipulated claims are fused by self-interests. If we allow a certain interest group to dictate a certain norm on our lives, then we should always conform to the masses. We are better than that. Don’t take those individual rights from us.

The tyranny in this nation is out of control. The idea that the backbone of this nation must sacrifice an age old pastime to oblige a a few hundred bored yuppies is absolutly sickening.

How many sports precede recorded history in the Old World? The government should only illegalize the dangerous and immoral. Any cocker knows that cockfighting is far from immoral.
