Recently, the California Fish & Game Commission voted in favor of adopting regulations to strengthen Assembly Bill 821, legislation that would restrict the use of lead-cored centerfire rifle cartridges in certain areas of the state for hunting and taking of non-game animals.
The Commission’s proposals would expand the scope of AB821 to include ammunition for black powder firearms, pistol, and rimfire cartridges. The proposals are intended to limit the use of such ammunition for hunting and taking of non-game animals.
These proposals will be voted on at the next Fish & Game Commission Meeting on Thursday, April 10 at 10:00 a.m. and Friday, April 11 at 8:30 a.m. at the UC Davis Bodega Bay Marine Laboratory Lecture Hall located at 2099 Westside Road in Bodega Bay. Please attend the next meeting of the Fish & Game Commission to show your opposition to these attacks on our hunting heritage. If you are unable to attend, please contact the commission and respectfully urge them to oppose these unwarranted and ill-conceived restrictions. Contact information can be found below.
