    Self-proclaimed environmental organizations are trying to prohibit the use of traditional ammunition consisting of lead core components in hunting and recreational shooting. They claim that some scavenging animals, like the California Condor, ingest and are poisoned by small pieces of lead contained in the carcasses of game and gut piles left in the field by hunters.

    But there is substantial evidence that the groups attacking the use of lead ammunition have employed faulty science, used questionable scientific methodologies, and selectively cherry picked data to support their campaign against traditional ammunition.......

    ......The truth is that lead ammunition is an unlikely cause of the alleged poisoning, because the metallic lead used in bullets and shot is relatively insoluble in the digestive tract of birds of prey and scavengers. Scientific studies have confirmed that it is very difficult to poison some birds with lead, even by repeatedly feeding them lead shot mixed with food over time.

    Send this to your hunting friends... Don't take anything for granted! Or you might lose it!

    I kinda agree, lead bullets dont help the situation but they certainly aren't the main cause of lead poisoning in wildlife. Lead shot over wetlands is a different situation lead will (over a very long period of time.) seep into water so I support keeping led out of duck hunting,fishing and the like.
    The more likely cause of lead poisoning (in wildlife.) is trash left and buried that eventually seeps into the ground and water.

    Nothing new here.

    Simply another attempt to open one of the many doors to ban guns.
    Causing ammo to be so expensive will hinder many from buying guns.

    Micro-stamping if passed into law will have a similar effect.

    It's not a environmental issue at all.

    I would bring back lead shot to waterfowling. Stupid ban!
