    U.S. SPORTSMAN'S ALLIANCE News California Bill Would Prohibit Lead Shot

    2/25/10


    A new bill in California would greatly restrict the use of traditional lead shot ammunition by hunters and recreational shooters in the state.

    Assembly Bill 2223, introduced by Assemblyman Pedro Nava (D- Santa Barbara), would ban the use of traditional shot within California’s Wildlife Management Areas which encompasses over one half million acres of state hunting and recreational shooting land.

    The bill would require that only ammunition approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for waterfowl and coot hunting be used on state land.

    “It is disturbing that lead ammunition is being targeted again since state wildlife areas are largely funded by the taxes levied on such ammunition,” said Evan Heusinkveld, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) director of state services. “Additionally, there is no demonstrated need to pass this legislation as the California Fish and Game Commission already has the authority to place restrictions on ammunition on a case by case basis. Those decisions are based on science and should be left up to the state’s wildlife management professionals.”

    A leading California sportsmen organization echoed those sentiments.

    “AB 2223 circumvents the science-based regulatory process of the California Fish and Game Commission,” said Mark Hennelly, vice president of the California Outdoor Heritage Alliance. “It wrongly allows politics to influence hunting regulations and the management of our wildlife resources.”

    Take Action! California sportsmen should contact their state assembly members and urge them to oppose AB 2223. Tell them that science, not politics or public opinion, should be the basic for wildlife management practices.

    To find your state assembly member’s phone number and other contact information, use the USSA Legislative Action Center at www.ussportsmen.org/lac.

    It just shows the anti-gunners aren't resting. They're going after guns in any way they can, one slice of the pie at a time. Commiefornia has eaten up a lot of their pie, but they have an insatiable appetite for more. Remember, it's bad enough that the Republicans often screw us over, but voting for Democrats is the worst thing you can do for your gun rights. And never compromise. You cannot appease the unappeaseable.

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

    Kinda like California on Steroids.
