    Today, the California Senate voted 23-15 to ban All forms of lead ammunition for hunting. The bill will now go to the Governor and I think Brown will sign it. Sad Day here. It is not a done deal yet but unless an organization like the CRPA or NRA can find the $$$ to file a lawsuit to at least postpone the implantation of it, things do not look so good right now. As a trapshooter, my concerns are not limited to hunting. I feel it is only a matter of time until additional legislation is brought to the floor to advance the lead ban to include target ranges. Maybe I am wrong (hope so ) but I think it is a real possibility. If We The People of California cannot stop this then other states will surely follow. It is nuts that people that do not or never have been hunters can control our ammunition type. I cannot afford to leave the state, my business and family are here but I have never felt more betrayed by a government than I do tonight. Lance Howard

    Don't know if it's passed Assembly but that house is 2 to 1 anti-gun also. It seems the law abiding shooters and hunters are doomed in this state. Don't know how these things will pan out with steel bullets causing sparks and brush fires and I think they are banned anyway.

    What's needed is a MASSIVE national gun owner boycott of ANY product or business in California. I mean do not purchase ANY product or service coming from that tyrannical socialist state.

    That Communist utopia just keeps on getting worse by the day. I don't see how anyone can live there anymore.
