Arizona Game and Fish Commission Decides Against

Lead Ammunition Ban!

Thank You for Your Attendance and Vocal Opposition to the Ban!





The Arizona Game and Fish Commission met today to discuss a number of issues related to the firearms and hunting community, but most importantly the impact that spent lead ammunition has on wildlife.



According to NRA representatives who attended and testified before the Commission, the room was filled with NRA members and hunters who were there to make sure that that a California-style lead ammunition ban wasn't brought forward. The members of the commission made it clear that they had no plan for a ban and that they supported the voluntary compliance program currently followed in Arizona (a description of the program can be found on the AZ Game and Fish website at www.azgfd.gov website).



Thank you to NRA Board of Director Don Saba who gave a very powerful presentation debunking the "junk science" put forth by the advocates of the California lead ammunition ban. Thanks to Board of Director Todd Rathner, who spoke on behalf of NRA's official position, and all the NRA members who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the meeting and voice their opposition :)

Apparently a few members of the AZ Fish and Game Commission has been vacationing in Kali.
That would be the likely origin of the bad idea of restricting pB.
Fortunately this was headed off...this time.
The old saying "********** leads the way" seems to have some truth in it.
