    Exclamation California Becomes the First State to Enact Total Lead Bullet Hunting Ban

    cali.jpg


    California is set to become the first state to ban the use of lead bullets for all hunting activities. The law, originally passed in 2013, will take full effect in less than one month on July 1, 2019, and will apply to all hunters taking any type of game with a firearm on public or private land.

    ďAll ammunition in a hunterís possession may be inspected

    Maybe they should start with their real threat.

    The whole lead thing is BS. The only problem I see is with things like the 17HMR, 22. No small monolithic bullets yet. Plenty of shotgun shells out there that are not lead based. F commiefornia.

    So now what, steel cored bullets with extra pointy tip?
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    Hunters should start to use Depleted Uranium rounds.

    Didn't read the article, but I'm gonna assume that the reason for this is because lead pellets kill birds of prey.

    Let me know when Caliphornia gets around to tearing down all those green windmills that will never be able to pay back the amount of energy needed to create them.

    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    “Proponents of the ban argue that lead bullets present an environmental risk to wildlife, especially the endangered California Condor.”

    There is no doubt that lead in carcasses is a problem for Condors, about 70% of the condors in Arizona test positive for lead.

    On the other hand, …
    If there was ever a specie that was destined to go extinct, it’s the California Condor:
    1. They do not reach breeding maturity until 7 years old.
    2. The breeding pair mates every other year.
    3. Only one chick in the nest survives.
