    Lawmaker Wants To Ban Lead Bullets For Hunting

    By Associated Press

    updated 8 minutes ago

    A Minnesota state lawmaker says she will introduce legislation to ban or severely curtail the use of lead bullets for hunting. Sandra Maslin, a Democrat from Eagan, cites reports of eagles dying from lead poisoning and of lead fragments found in venison. She says it's part of an overall effort to get lead out of the environment.

    The head of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association opposes regulating lead in bullets. Mark Johnson says there's no evidence that lead from bullets is has actually harmed any people.

    Hunter Beth Siverhus of Warroad tells Minnesota Public Radio News that she is planning to start using copper-covered bullets for the first time in next year's deer hunt. But Johnson says he has tried using copper ammunition and finds it less accurate than lead bullets.

    m855 is supposed to be replaced with a lead free round this year. That just seems like the kind of thing that is going to be used against us eventually.

    Yeah that worked out great. We saved a couple hundred QUESTIONABLY endangered birds, and lost millions of PEOPLE to malaria.
