CALIFORNIA REGULATORY ALERT!
This information is accurate at the time this CAL-ERT was written and originally distributed. The NRA Members' Councils of California will keep you informed as issues affect your gun-rights in California.




STATE-WIDE BAN ON LEAD AMMUNITION MAY BE AROUND THE CORNER




The Fish and Game Commission is considering a state-wide ban on the use of lead ammunition for hunting. Almost two years ago, a bill (AB821) was signed into law that imposed a ban on the use of lead ammunition for hunting in areas occupied by the California condor. Through its hunting regulations, the Commission extended the ban to include .22 rimfire ammunition and expanded the boundaries where the ban applies. With this track record, the Commission is likely to be receptive to carrying the ban to the borders of the state.

From the beginning, proponents of the current ban have wanted to lead ammunition banned state-wide. The California condor was simply being used as an excuse by the anti-hunters and anti-gunners to carry out this agenda. They have already achieved a partial ban. The next step is to take it state-wide. If they are successful, they will push to ban the use of lead ammunition for everyone, not just hunters.

There is no scientific evidence that lead ammunition is the source of lead affecting the health of condors released to the wild. There is no scientific evidence that lead ammunition is a risk to human health and the environment in California. What is evident is that there are a group of special interests that have friends on the Commission who will not stop until the most affordable, available, and balistically superior ammunition available is banned in our state. When that happens they know the damage it will do to hunting and shooting participation.





ACTION REQUESTED:




Please write and call the California Fish and Game Commission and request that they oppose all efforts to extend the ban on lead ammunition.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although the NRA vigorously opposed AB821 back in 2007, it is now law. However, it is unfortunate that the CA. Fish & Game Commission expanded the restrictions much farther than those required by AB821. Therefore, the NRA urges you to contact the CA. Fish & Game Commission and voice your opposition to even more enhanced restrictions that exceed the scope and intent of AB821.

Re: to anyone willing to help out!

benlow, I tried the link as well, it was a forwarded e-mail to me, and I just brought it here.

I just added the e-mail addresses to my address book and sent my letter to all three that way. Thanks, Ron Tilley

Re: to anyone willing to help out!

No Thanks needed Ron. Everyone that lives in CA should try to do something about this. It seems like things start here and spread to some of the other states. So maybe everyone should try to do something. I am still BUTT HURT over having to use steel shot on Waterfowl. That steel just goes right through some of the birds and they fly off and die. I liked lead shot a lot better.
I just copied and pasted the email addresses and it worked fine. I thought maybe you could fix the link so it would be just a little easier for other people too use. It is still simple enough if someone really cares about the bullets we probably won’t be shooting much longer. Thankyou for doing something. Bennie

Bennie, I do not know how to fix the link, I just hope a little help from here could go a long ways, I agree, the bs that we face usually starts here but when enforced here it seems to spread. I hope people will take the time to be a bur under the decision makers saddles.
