California: Workshop on Implementation of the Lead Ammunition Ban being held TOMORROW

Monday, June 2, 2014

The California Fish and Game Commission is continuing to explore ways to implement the statewide lead ammunition ban.  In 2013, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 711 to ban the use of traditional ammunition for all hunting in California.

 

The Commission is required to adopt regulations to ban lead ammunition in the state no later than July 1, 2015, with full implementation of the ban to occur no later than July 1, 2019.

 

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will hold a public workshop TOMORROW, June 3 to discuss the implementation of the lead ammunition ban.  The workshop will be held at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center located at 921 Waterfront Drive in Eureka from 7:00-8:30 p.m.  We encourage all hunters and recreational shooters to attend this meeting to express your concerns about the proposed options that will be discussed there, before the regulations are drafted. Click here to view the Commision’s powerpoint presentation.

 

For more information about the NRA opposition to bans on traditional ammunition and the truth behind the anti-hunting groups’ agenda to ban lead ammunition, please visit HuntForTruth.org.

 

We will continue to keep you informed as the CDFW finalizes the proposed AB 711 regulations.  Individuals and organizations may email comments to [email protected] (please use “Non lead implementation” in the subject line) or mail hard copy correspondence to:  CDFW, Wildlife Branch, Attn: Non lead implementation, 1812 Ninth Street, Sacramento, CA 95811.
