California Assembly Bill 711 Threatens the Future of Hunting

California Tree Huggers Threaten to Ban all Lead Ammunition for Hunting with Assembly Bill 711.  Hunters Beware, if this bill passes, the state of California will try to ban the sport of hunting all together.  OPPOSE this bill!

On September 8, 2013  The National Rifle Association – Institute for Legislative Action reported an update on the state of California Anti Gun and Anti Hunting bills scheduled to be heard on the Senate and Assembly floors.  

The NRA reported the following about Assembly Bill 711:

Assembly Bill 711 would make California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of ALL lead ammunition for hunting.  Extensive research has shown that traditional lead ammunition does NOT pose a health hazard for hunters.  Please communicate the following facts to your Senator as reasons to OPPOSE AB 711: 

  • Federal and state health department studies have concluded that lead ammunition is not a human health risk, and a recently released peer reviewed study out of Sweden indicates that there is no human health risk to people who consume wild game harvested with lead ammunition.
  • Despite 99% hunter compliance, the AB 821 lead ammunition ban has failed to reduce lead poisoning in condors.
  • AB 711 fails to address the alternative sources of lead in the environment that are poisoning condors and other wildlife.

Even if one is not a hunter, recreational shooter or gun owner, those who enjoy nature by bird-watching, hiking or camping benefit from hunting excise tax dollars through the Pittman-Robertson Act.  According to the California Department of Finance, AB 711 could cost California $34 MILLION in lost revenue and federal funding, not the $45,000 claimed by lead ammunition ban advocates.  That is only the tip of the iceberg.  The state Department of Finance figure does not include loss of jobs, reduction in taxes from decreasing hunting-related expenditures or the likely increase in cost to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to hire more wardens to enforce the lead ammunition ban.

Yet again the politicians are writing anti gun bills and making legislative decisions that are not based on facts.  They really like to ignore research, evidence, and statistics when it comes to gun laws and regulation.  What are they thinking?  

By going after hunters and the hunting sports these paper pushing politicians are destroying the ability for you and I to be self reliant.  You don’t need to live in the country to understand the importance of hunting animals to feed your family.

Hunting is not just a sport, it is an invaluable skill that will save your life if there is some national crisis and the stores no longer have food on the shelves.  When the defecation meets the oscillation, getting food will be on the top three of your “To Do List.”  If you can trap and hunt animals, know how to skin them, and are able to prepare them for some good eatin’ over a fire you will be the hero in your house. 

Please help us real men and women preserve our spot on the hierarchy of the food chain.  Man was born to hunt and eat animals.  Don’t let California take away our ability to protect ourselves and feed our families.

Take the time to voice your opposition to this bill and all the other anti gun bills.  You can find contact info for your state Senator and Assemblymen here
