Hunting by Remote Control

I'd read about the concept of hunting online before and it looks like it will be made illegal before it has a chance to take off.

Indeed, the concept of live-action hunting - done over the Internet - is raising the hackles of everyone from animal-rights activists to hunting groups to gun advocates. As a result, lawmakers in 14 states are now trying to ban the practice, including Texas, where the only such online hunting facility exists. |Link|
I was recently reading an unpublished article on how the role frontier mythology and ethos has had on America and the development of the Internet...I wonder what that old liar Fredrick Jackson Turner would think of internet-based live action hunting.
