Golden State Lead Ammunition Ban Sent to Governor’s Desk!

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Please Contact Governor Schwarzenegger Today!


Today the California Legislature sent Assembly Bill 821 to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) for his consideration.  AB 821 would ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting in areas occupied by California condor.  The lead ammunition ban cannot be supported by scientific fact.  The Legislature has chosen to make a political football out of an anti-hunting group’s efforts to ban lead ammunition throughout the state.

By passing AB 821, the Legislature has usurped the authority of the Fish and Game Commission over the regulation of hunting and the management of the state’s wildlife.  The Legislature has arrogantly dismissed the years-long deliberative process involving extensive public input and review of the most current scientific information pertaining to the potential effects of lead ammunition on the health of condors.  The most recent scientific review provided to the Commission revealed that previous science attempting to show a link between lead ammunition and condor mortality is severely flawed.

Unlike the Fish and Game Commission, the Legislature did not take into account the effects of a lead ammunition ban on the state’s hunters.  Studies show that a ban will force many hunters to quit hunting altogether.  This will have terrible consequences on wildlife management practices and the state’s hunting heritage.

Please contact the Governor and respectfully tell him that the Fish and Game Commission is the government body of experts appropriately entrusted to scientifically regulate hunting in California, not politicians in Sacramento.  Respectfully request that he veto AB 821 and allow the Commission’s process to continue its course.

Governor Schwarzenegger can be reached by phone at 916-445-2841, fax at 916-445-4633, or visit
