Anti-Hunting and Anti-Gun Extremists Attempt to Impose California-Style Lead Ammo Ban on Arizona’s Hunters

Monday, January 14, 2008

As many of you know all too well, California’s gun bans and environmental extremism have an unfortunate tendency to migrate east.  There is no more recent example of this than California’s three month-old lead ammunition ban imposed on all hunters within the vast condor range that covers nearly one-third of the state’s land mass.  Arizona has a “nonessential experimental” population of condors and the California extremists are now moving across the border to impose their unjustified lead ammunition prohibition on hunters in the Grand Canyon State.

The most current science on the subject concludes that the claim implicating lead ammunition as a major source of elevated lead in free-ranging condors is not supported by the reports introduced into the public policy debate thus far.  The so-called “science” that the animal “rights” and environmental extremists have been citing throughout the process has been proven to be agenda-driven.  While state legislators and game commissioners in California chose to buckle under the political pressure, much more should be expected from Arizona’s Commission members.  They have a history of ensuring their policy decisions are guided by sound science, not the political winds of the day.

On Friday, January 18, at the Arizona Game and Fish Commission meeting, animal “rights” and environmental extremists are expected to turnout in order to pressure members of the Commission to implement a lead ammunition ban.  Agenda Item 10 would be the most logical place for them to make their push as it pertains to “issues associated with lead from spent ammunition.”

It is absolutely critical that NRA members and hunters fill the meeting room in order to counter the high-pressure scare tactics of the environmental extremists!  Let the Commissioners hear from you!  Tell them that the best available science does not justify a prohibition of lead ammunition and that the current voluntary program in the condor range is working well.  Mandatory bans have no place in Arizona!
