New Mexico’s Cockfighting Ban

The effort to ban cockfighting in New Mexico has ended, and the gamecocks (roosters) have emerged victorious. As of June 15, New Mexico will join 48 other states in banning the bloodsport, where two roosters fitted with razor-sharp steel blades are placed in a pit and hack each other for several minutes to over a half hour, to the death of one or both. People bet on the outcome of the fights, and apparently think they’re entertaining.

Naturally, those who run cockfighting (the New Mexico Game Fowl Association) are upset. Ronald Barron, the president of the Association, noted that the ban is “damn near ruining [his] life.” He rather creepily added, “This isn’t a business. It’s my pleasure. It’s my right, or rather it was my right.”

Kudos to New Mexico for taking away people’s rights! All eyes are now on Louisiana, to see if that last bastion of cockfighting will hold up.
