Lead Ammunition in Jeopardy in Washington State!

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voice Heard! 

The lead ammunition you use for hunting as well as target and competitive shooting will be banned from purchase, use and ownership in the state of Washington if the state's Department of Ecology has its way.  Lead ammunition is a target of a series of recommendations in the "Lead Chemical Action Plan" prepared by the Department of Ecology. 

The plan is open for public comment until Monday, October 6.  The plan and information about submitting comments are available at:
http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/swfa/pbt/leadcap/.

Lead shot has been banned in waterfowl hunting.  Most recently, California passed a law that prohibits hunters from using lead ammunition in areas within the range of the California condor.  A symposium was held in June in Boise, Idaho about the effects of lead ammunition on wildlife and humans.  Most of the speakers supported a ban on lead ammunition, regardless of the cost, performance, and availability of substitutes.  The Department of Ecology plan is yet another effort to remove lead ammunition nationwide.

Please take the time to submit comments to the Department of Ecology and to Governor Chris Gregoire (D).  Let the Governor know that there is no adequate substitute for lead ammunition and that any affects on humans and wildlife do not justify a ban as recommended by her Department of Ecology.  Governor Gregoire can be reached by phone at
(360) 902-4111, by fax at (360) 753-4110, or click here to send email.  The Governor can also be reached by U.S. Mail at: Governor Chris Gregoire, Office of the Governor, P.O. Box 40002, Olympia, WA 98504-0002.
