California’s great gun grab: State’s sweeping gun control bills target firearms, ammo — and hunting
Lead bullet ban could end hunting, critics warn

Breaking new ground in the state-level battle over firearms, the Democratic-dominated California state legislature has taken gun control into uncharted territory with a flurry of new bills that target not just firearms and ammunition, but also recreational hunting.

Among the dozen gun-control bills sitting on California Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk are measures that would outlaw lead ammunition for hunting as well as common types of hunting rifles under the umbrella of an assault-weapons ban. Taken together, the measures go far beyond the efforts that have inspired a sharp backlash and political battles in states such as Connecticut and Colorado.

To put the lead bill in context, about 95 percent of all ammunition sold in California contains lead. The alternative is metal bullets, some of which can pierce police armor and are banned by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Critics say the bill would effectively end hunting as a sport in California.

“If California outlaws lead bullets, the federal government already outlaws everything else, so there’s nothing left for hunters to use,” said California Assemblyman Brian Jones, a Republican from Santee. “It basically outlaws hunting.”

Shit, mine are all made of ice and I keep them in a chest freezer. They go in my ceramic glocks.

It's one of the great spots for pronghorn, bighorn sheep & blacktailed deer. Also a hot spot on the Pacific waterfowl flyway.

Just the typical democrackhead urbanites ruining it for the rest of the state.Angry
