California Lead Ammunition Ban (AB 711) Goes to Assembly Floor

Earlier this week, the California Assembly Appropriations Committee voted 11 to 5 to approve a proposed statewide lead ammunition ban for all hunting, Assembly Bill 711.  AB 711 would make California the first state in the nation to prohibit the use of all lead ammunition for hunting.  This bill now goes to the state Assembly floor where it is expected to be brought up for a vote soon.  The NRA urges all hunters, recreational shooters and gun owners to actively oppose AB 711.  We strongly urge you to contact members of the state Assembly.  Please forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow sportsmen and gun owners throughout California and urge them to do the same.  Contact information for all state Assemblymen can be found here.
