    Protect your right to hunt. Your right to own pets. Your right to eat meat. If it passes in CA, you can bet other states will not be far behind. The ARs never rest!!

    Gov. Schwarzenegger Urged to Veto California Lead Ban Legislation
    Sportsmen's immediate action needed, contact governor today!<br>
    <br>
    September 14, 2007 (California)<br>
    <br>
    California sportsmen must call on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to veto a bill that will impose a lead ammunition ban and put the future of hunting in jeopardy.<br>
    <br>
    Assembly bill 821, sponsored by Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Santa Barbara, is a poorly-worded bill that targets big game and varmint hunters and threatens to ban all lead ammunition. Inconclusive science that identifies lead as a detriment to the endangered California condor led to the bill’s introduction. The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance joins the California Department of Fish and Game in opposing AB 821.<br>
    <br>
    “Decisions such as this that will significantly impact wildlife and hunters should be made by wildlife experts, not politicians,” said Rob Sexton, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance vice president for government affairs. “The experts understand that there are many factors cited that contribute to the California condor’s decline. Even the state’s Condor Recovery Team, which is charged with implementing a plan to improve condor numbers, opposes the meat cleaver approach embodied in AB 821.”<br>
    <br>
    Recent research shows that a lead ban will result in as many as 25 percent of hunters walking away from the sport due to the high cost and limited availability of alternative ammunition. Conservation programs for every species in the state depend on hunters’ license and tax dollars. Enacting AB 821 prioritizes the recovery of condors at the expense of all other California wildlife.<br>
    <br>
    “Assembly bill 821 is frankly unnecessary. For more than a century, hunters have been America’s premier conservationists and they respond well to voluntary measures to improve wildlife,” said Sexton. “Educating sportsmen about the need to bury animal carcasses and remains to prevent potential lead ingestion is a smart first step.”<br>
    <br>
    Assembly Bill 821 passed the Assembly on May 14 by a vote of 42 to 32. It passed the Senate on Sept. 4, by a vote of 23 to 15.<br>
    <br>
    Take Action! California sportsmen should call Gov. Schwarzenegger today and urge him to veto Assembly Bill 821. The governor can be reached by phone at (916) 445-2841. Fax letters to (916) 445-4633. Use the Legislative Action Center at www.ussportsmen.org to prepare your letter today.<br>
