HSUS Petitions For Lead Ammo Ban on Public Lands

Our old friends at the Humane Society of the United States are at it again.

This time the anti-hunting organization is looking to effectively shut down hunting on public land by eliminating the use of lead-based ammunition.

This is a tactic that has been tried before and beaten back. The Center For Biological Diversity, another anti-hunting group, had its petition to the Environmental Protection Agency requesting a ban on lead-based ammunition twice rejected.

Some states have also dealt with – and rejected – the notion of banning lead ammo. But one state has adopted a ban: California.

But HSUS being HSUS, they figured they might as well give it another whack and have even developed a plan of attack for getting it done (See the HSUS Lead Free Campaign).

You will see on Page 3 of the document, a heading entitled: The HSUS Approach.

Point 1 of that approach: “We will be filing a petition to ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting purposes on federal lands owned by the Department of Interior (DOI)—which comprises about one-fifth of the total land area of the United States.”
