In 2010, the BLM closed 400,000 acres of publicly-owned, national monument lands in three states to recreational shooting activities. BLM is currently proposing to close an additional 600,000 acres in southern Arizona. In response to this, Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) introduced H. R. 3440, the “Recreational Shooting Protection Act.”
H. R. 3440 prevents a ban on recreational shooting on BLM monuments. The bill requires congressional approval for any recreational shooting closures or restrictions proposed on BLM-managed national monuments. This bill further directs the BLM to manage national monument land in a manner that supports, promotes, and enhances recreational shooting opportunities.
Key provisions of H. R. 3440 include:
Hunting/Conservation, H.R. 4089, Recreational Shooting, National Monuments
