Perez & Hueso Join Democrats to Ban Lead Ammo in California

In legislation sure to lead to a severe decline in dove hunting, as well as all other types of hunting in California, our two state elected representatives, V. Manuel Perez & Ben Hueso, voted to ban the sale, possession, and use of lead ammunition for all hunting in California. Since steel ammo is considered armor-piercing by the federal government, and other exotic metal-based bullets are frightfully expensive, this will cause an eventual end to hunting in California. This is the intent of the new law, anyway. The lead ammo ban starts July 1, 2015. The reason for the delay in implementing the law is that the Democrats figure they’ll have moved on to other elected offices before you notice the effects of the law, and therefore be unable to do anything about it. These two elected representatives of our valley also voted in favor of every gun-contol measure they could this year, including banning mags that hold over 10 bullets, even if they were “grandfathered”, making all rifles with detachable magazines (even the Ruger 10-22) be registered as assault rifles, and many more. Although they talk a good line, these are two Democrats whose votes show these two legislators are very much against any ownership or use of firearms by law-abiding citizens. Please call the governor at 916-445-2841 to request he veto these bills. We did!
