California has become the first state to enact a statewide ban on the use of lead ammunition for hunting



The California Fish and Game Commission are implanting the law in three stages:
1.On July 1, 2015, no lead ammo may be used to hunt in state run wildlife areas and ecological reserves.
2.On July 1, 2016, no lead ammunition can be used when hunting with a shotgun for upland game birds, furbearing mammals, and non-game mammals and birds.
3.A total ban on hunting with lead ammo goes into effect on July 1, 2019.

NO LEAD HERE

They have no clue what they are doing over there. I agree that I hope others do not adopt this.

Is there any concrete evidence that shows lead ammo causes condor deaths or human illness from eating animals shot with lead bullets?

So I'm guessing there is no more traditional muzzle loaded hunting going on eh?

I can see the headlines now. Man gets off for shooting neighbor, but gets 10 years for using lead ammo.

Wouldn't a smart person dig out the lead bullet or fragments? Or is there enough residue to poison someone?

With condors, yes, there is plenty of actual evidence.

Any links to the studies? I have read there is a lot of faulty science behind this.

I doubt that will effect Texas any time soon! As much dollars that comes into texas
economy here, many millions that help us here, would not worry to much yet!

Guess that would depend on who occupies the white house next! We the people have that
control!
