AB 711 — Ban on lead ammunition for hunting
Analysis This bill bans the use of lead ammunition for hunting, due to concern over possible lead poisoning on humans, livestock, and wildlife. This concern seems to have at least some validity. Reasonable control of pollution is a legitimate function of government, but this law appears to interact badly with federal gun control laws, which tightly limit the manufacture and sale of non-lead ammunition, so we must oppose this bill at this time.
