    Lead Ammo Ban In California

    New: AB 2123 would prohibit the sale of lead ammo for hunting.
    Posted April 24, 2006
    This bill was defeated last year but that isn't stopping its proponents. If this bill becomes law things will only get worse for gun owners.
    Assembly Bill 2123 would prohibit the possession of any ammunition other than non lead ammunition when hunting within areas of California as determined by the Fish and Game Commission.

    if only I was better at photoshop.

    it sure would be a shame if somebody's target load was used to hunt something.*nudge**nudge*

    it says lead ammo

    EDIT: so far the bill died in committee

    wtf would you use then? the laws here say it must be an expansion type bullet... all expansion type bullets use lead...I doubt it'd ever pass.

    You don't need lead for expansion, there are a few companies that make pure copper bullets, or tungsten core bullets, the most popular of which are Barnes

    We cant use lead shot for waterfoul. I never really understood why not but steel shot works you just got to get them a little closer before shooting.

    The lead shot would stay in the ponds and such. And when ducks were scraping the bottom for thier food they would pick up the lead shot also. Thus leading to lead poisoning. or.... you can always go back to the good old "THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!" line.

    yeah, but you can get hevishot which will shoot farther and harder than lead. and it's eco friendly.

    some heavy shot turkey shells are closer to $5 a piece, but they're used more the performance gain, not because lead is outlawed.

    Yes I do not understand why we cant use lead shot.

    Let me explain for 4 years ALL I DID was sandblast lead based paint. Do you have any idea how much lead you need to ingest before it becomes a problem? A fucking lot.

    I also did asbestos abatment that I can understand. Lead poisoning is almost non existant, You would litterly need to swallow an ouce or 3 of lead before it would have any affect on you whatsoever.

    Breathing in lead is another story but we are talking about ingestion.

    My grandpa sucked on a 1 ounce lead weight every other day of his life when he went fishing and you know what finally killed him at the age of 65? Lung cancer.
