Virginia Gubernatorial Candidates Support Sunday Hunting

With a few caveats.

From The Roanoke Times:
Democrat Creigh Deeds, who in most polls is trailing Republican Bob McDonnell in the race for governor, made a pitch for hunters and other sportsmen Thursday by saying he would support a local option to lift a ban on Sunday hunting.

In response, McDonnell said he would also lift the ban, but only on private land. . . .
Deeds . . . stopped short of expressing support for a statewide removal of the ban. . . . "I've got three daughters that I love to death that live on horseback. The only day of the week they can ride during hunting season . . . is on Sundays, so my wife would skin me alive if I signed a bill that didn't have a local option."

Let's hope Deed's wife doesn't not decide the issue for everybody else.
