NSSF Opposition Letter to Proposed Lead Ammunition Ban (AB 711)

Regarding the proposed lead ban in California:

First, absent sound science of an adverse impact to wildlife populations, there is no justifiable basis to restrict use traditional ammo. If sound science exists then wildlife managers (not legislators) should lead the identification of possible remedial measures available that adequately address the issue and implement the measure that is least costly to the sportsmen.
