arma virumque cano (et alia)
Though politically influential, the hunting community is increasingly unpopular. A survey published by Eurispes, a research institute, found that that less than 18% of Italians regarded shooting as an acceptable pastime.
There's a saying that permeates many areas of Italian society from the driving ettiquette to the hunting rules: If you want to be organized move to Switzerland. Italians love the anarchist's idea of freedom, but even here all good things must come to an end. When the down side gets too great, like those 35 dead this year in hunting accidents, something's got to change.
