CA Ban on Traditional Ammo May Lead to Ban on All Hunting Ammo

The California Assembly recently passed a ban on traditional ammunition containing lead that may result in a complete ban on all hunting ammunition.

Assembly Bill 711, which would outlaw the use of lead for hunting in California, passed the State Assembly on May 22nd by a vote of 44-21.  In a twist that presents a threat to all hunting, passage of AB 771 by the California Senate could stop all hunting with rifles as the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) may consider alternative rifle ammunition as “cop killer bullets” triggering a ban on those as well.

Now the bill is in the hands of the State Senate.  It’s already illegal to use traditional ammunition in Condor Range. If the Senate passes the bill, California would be the first state in the U.S. to take such action.

When coupled with the ban on hunting bears with hounds, passed in 2012, California is undisputed in its claim as the most unfriendly state to hunters in the country.  California sportsmen and women should not let this happen without a fight.  Senators need to know that there is no justification for a blanket ban on traditional ammunition, and they need to know about the potential ban on all ammo as a result of the actions of the legislature and ATF.

Take Action! California sportsmen and women must contact their State Senators today.  Tell them to vote NO on AB 711.  To find your Senator’s contact information visit the USSA Legislative Action Center
