Daily Voice : Stop the New NRA Attack on Wildlife

Stop the New NRA Attack on Wildlife

For the third consecutive year, the NRA has gotten the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus to introduce legislation aimed at preventing the EPA from doing its job by regulating lead that kills wildlife.



Toxic lead has been sensibly removed from water pipes, gasoline, paint and other sources dangerous to people — but tons of spent lead from hunting and fishing gear are still left in the wild every year, where they enter the food chain and exact a deadly toll.



Lead ammo also poses serious health risks to humans who consume wild game riddled with lead-shot. Since effective, nontoxic bullets, shot and fishing weights are now widely available and comparable in price to lead, more than 250 organizations in 40 states are calling on the EPA to get the lead out.



Don't let the NRA's politics of fear undercut our environmental laws.



Take action — help us protect eagles, falcons, loons, cranes, condors and people from unnecessary lead poisoning by urging your representatives to stop the cruel and misguided "Sportsmen's Act."
