Attention Spokane, Washington NRA Members: Please Attend Tonight’s Meeting About Potential Lead Ammo Ban!

Thursday, September 18, 2008

Stand-Up and Voice Your Opposition! 

As we reported, the lead ammunition you use for hunting as well as target and competitive shooting is in jeopardy.  If the state's Department of Ecology has its way, lead ammunition will be banned from purchase, use and ownership in the state of Washington.  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:

There is a public meeting tonight, Thursday, September 18, at 7:00 p.m. regarding the draft of the
CAP.  The meeting will be held at the Spokane Community College Auditorium, Building 6, located at 1810 North Greene Street in Spokane.  Please attend this meeting and voice your opposition to this proposal.

Also, 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.
