Letter to the editor: Laws might not stop hunters

I would like to comment on the recently published opinion piece titled, “Coyote policies lead to reckless killing” (Feb. 4). In my opinion current coyote policies surely need to be addressed. And I agree that the killing of a family pet on Christmas Day, as reported in the article, was tragic and indeed thoughtless.
But as a former Hunter Safety instructor I am quite sure of another thing. Any shooter who ignores one of the basic rules of firearm safety, “be sure of your target,” is likely to be as reckless under any circumstance.
