California: Vote to Ban Traditional Ammunition to be Heard in Senate Committee on Monday

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Members of the state Senate Appropriations Committee MUST hear your OPPOSITION

Assembly Bill 711 would make California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of all lead ammunition for hunting.  This bill’s next stop is in the state Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, June 23, when it is expected to be brought up for a vote.   We need a strong voice of opposition to AB 711.

Extensive research has shown that traditional lead ammunition does NOT pose a health hazard for hunters.

In order to save California’s hunting heritage, all hunters, recreational shooters and gun owners MUST actively oppose AB 711.  We strongly urge you to contact each member of the state Senate Appropriations Committee listed below.  Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow sportsmen and gun owners throughout California and urge them to do the same.

There are five facts that you can communicate to members of the state Senate Appropriations Committee and your state Senator as reasons to OPPOSE AB 711:


1)    The lead in ammunition is not the same as the highly toxic, chemical lead in old paint and gasoline.

2)    Federal and state health department studies have concluded that lead ammunition is not a human health risk.

3)    Studies have found that lead ammunition does not cause lead poisoning in wildlife.

4)    Despite 99% hunter compliance, the AB 821 lead ammunition ban has failed to reduce lead poisoning in condors.

5)    AB 711 fails to address the alternative sources of lead in the environment that are poisoning condors and other wildlife.

The NRA recognizes that California is one of the most active Second Amendment "battleground states," so for decades NRA has devoted substantial resources to fighting for the right to keep and bear arms for Californians. The NRA has full-time legislative advocates in its Sacramento office fighting ill-conceived gun ban proposals. NRA coordinates a statewide campaign to fight ill-conceived local gun bans and regulations. And NRA has been litigating cases in California courts to promote the right to self-defense and the Second Amendment for many years. NRA’s California legal team continues to work pro-actively to strike down ill-conceived gun control laws and ordinances, and to protect the Second Amendment rights of California firearms owners.
