The Fund for Animals, the Humane Society of the United States, The League of Women Voters, Virginians Against Domestic Violence, and the Virginia Interfaith Alliance have all teamed up against Ballot Question Number Two.
It would enshrine in the state Constitution the right to hunt and fish.
But that's NOT what the ballot says.
