Vermont’s Bill to Ban Lead Ammunition Appears To Have Been “Hung On The Wall!”

Friday, March 30, 2007


Due to the overwhelming and exceptional actions of Vermont’s gun owners and sportsmen, H. 352 appears to be dead for the 2007 legislative session. 


H. 352 is being disguised as a “help the children lead ban” bill to remove lead hazards from homes and businesses.  Unfortunately, H. 352 is too broad and leaves interpretation open for municipalities to ban manufacture, sales, and possession of lead ammunition.  


The House Committee on General, Housing, & Military Affairs, faced with a huge grassroots opposition to H. 352, declined to take action by the March 16, 5:00 PM “crossover” deadline and is now by Vermont terminology, “hung on the wall.”


Unfortunately, the threat is not completely over.  This bill can still be revived, so it is important that you continue to contact your State Legislators and urge them to oppose any anti-gun/anti-sportsmen legislation.


Attorney General William Sorrell (D), who has been championing this bill, has teamed up with the rabidly anti-gun New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo (D) in an effort to export this so-called “Help the Children Lead Ban” bill into other states, in effect nationalizing this new anti-gun/anti-sportsmen front.


Again, please continue to communicate with your State Legislators and, the Attorney General and tell them the so-called “Help the Children Lead Ban” legislation will destroy Vermont’s, and the nation’s, centuries old heritage of hunting and shooting.
