Iowa: Traditional Ammunition Bill Tentatively Scheduled for House Floor Vote Tomorrow!

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

House Joint Resolution 2001 is expected to be voted on tomorrow in the Iowa House of Representatives. This legislation was recently passed in the House Natural Resources Committee by a 17 to 4 vote. HJR 2001, which is the House companion of Senate Joint Resolution 2001, would rescind the Iowa Natural Resources Commission’s unjustified and dangerous regulation banning the use of traditional (lead) ammunition for dove hunting. This legislation would go a long way in protecting the use of traditional ammunition in the Hawkeye State.

Here are four reasons why the use of traditional ammunition should NOT be banned:

  • No scientific studies regarding traditional ammunition have been shown to have any population-level impacts on doves or other species. In fact, doves are the most popular and abundant game bird hunted in America with population levels at all-time highs.
  • The price of non-traditional ammunition with similar performance characteristics is significantly higher and will keep many hunters from taking part in the dove season, especially in these dire economic times.
  • Last year, the seven appointed members of the state Natural Resources Commission (NRC) flagrantly usurped the authority of the state legislature by imposing a traditional (lead) ban for dove hunting. State legislators had an extensive floor debate on the same traditional ammunition ban and overwhelmingly rejected it during the passage of the dove bill.
  • No state in the country - even those where hunting is far less of the state's heritage - has ever imposed a statewide ban on the use of traditional ammunition for hunting doves.

Please contact your state Representative now and urge him or her to vote for HJR 2001. This legislation is crucial to protect the use of traditional ammunition and stop anti-hunting extremists from attacking a means of hunting shown to have no population-level impacts on wildlife. Legislative contact information can be found here.
