Arizona Game and Fish Commission Decides Against Lead Ammunition Ban!

Friday, January 18, 2008

Thank You for Your Attendance and Vocal Opposition to the Ban!

 

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission met today to discuss a number of issues related to the firearms and hunting community.  As NRA reported throughout the week, the most concerning of these related to the supposed impact of spent lead ammunition on wildlife.  According to NRA representatives who attended and testified before the Commission, the meeting room was filled to capacity with concerned NRA members who were there to ensure that the idea of imposing a California-style lead ammunition ban in Arizona was soundly rejected. 

After hearing from NRA officials, the members of the commission made it clear that they had no plan for a ban and that they supported the voluntary compliance program currently in effect in Arizona (a description of the program can be found on the AZ Game and Fish website at http://www.azgfd.gov/). 

Thanks to NRA Board Member Don Saba who spoke on his own behalf to provide a powerful and informative presentation debunking the "junk science" put forth by the advocates of the California lead ammunition ban.  Todd Rathner, also a member of NRA’s Board of Directors, spoke on behalf of NRA's official position in opposition to any future ban.  Sincere thanks goes to all of the NRA members who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the meeting and voice their opposition!  The overwhelming turnout was most certainly noticed by the commissioners and Department staff.  Finally, please take a moment to contact the five Commission members and thank them for their reasoned approach to the concerns associated with the use of lead ammunition for hunting in the condor range.  Contact information can be found at http://www.azgfd.gov/inside_azgfd/commission_members.shtml
