The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District released a Draft Resource Management Plan (RMP) for public review and comment. The comment period has been extended to May 27th. The draft RMP does not propose to close additional public lands to hunting or target shooting, but there are numerous negative and unsupported statements made in the draft RMP with respect to target shooting and the environmental effects of lead ammunition within the planning area. The draft RMP can be viewed at http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field.html.
The NRA, accompanied by a number of hunting and shooting sports organizations, submitted comments on the draft RMP. Please click here to view these comments.
If you hunt and/or target shoot on the lands covered by the draft RMP, or any Federal public lands, please take the time to review the draft RMP and the NRA’s comments, and submit your comments by one of the methods listed below. All decisions regarding BLM’s management of public lands and recreational use flow from RMPs and it is vitally important for sportsmen and women to participate in the planning process when opportunity for comment is open during the planning process. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods:
