The NRA and its cronies have cooked up a new bill for the California state legislature to repeal the historic 2013 law protecting condors, eagles and other wildlife from preventable lead poisoning.
Please help us stop this bill in its tracks.
Toxic lead from hunting ammunition in the form of bullet fragments and spent shot enters the food chain and exacts a deadly toll on wildlife. Lead is a potent neurotoxin -- it's not safe for any animal, including humans, at any level of exposure. We've removed lead from our homes, gas tanks and children's toys -- and now California is leading the way in removing toxic lead from the food chain by fully transitioning to nontoxic ammunition by 2019.
And we know the new regulations can work: Since 2008 the Golden State has required the use of nonlead bullets for hunting in southern and central California in the California condor range, and over the past seven years hunters have easily made the switch.
