    about the effect of the "puppy mill" legislation on the professional kennels that breed high-level trial dogs as well as a high percentage of purebred gun dogs for hunters. Many of the same hunters who collect & use expensive, uber-high quality firearms also prefer the dogs with expensive pedigrees.
         I think another part of this may be an effect of the same type of "slippery slope" mindset that they apply to gun laws. The animal rights advocates include a number of people who are vehemently opposed to hunting. The "slippery slope" view is that any success in promoting animal rights legislation might lead to success in passing antihunting legislation.
