"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."
"I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being."
~ Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the U.S.

Gun range protest in South Kingstown - 06/21/2000
Defenders of Animals protested four shooting preserves frequented by hunters. The safety record of the shooting facilities was dismal, including a stray bullet incident that just missed a child's head by inches. Due to complaints from residents, town officials, and Defenders of Animals, all four shooting preserves have been closed to all rifle and handgun shooting.
