NSSF Urges Calls to Interior Secretary to Reject Anti-Hunting Groups’ Petition

NSSF is urging hunters, sportsmen and target shooters to call Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell to ask her to reject a petition filed with her department by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other anti-hunting groups demanding rules against hunting with traditional ammunition on public lands. It’s another tactic we warned about previously straight out of the HSUS playbook. The 50 page-petition fails to make the case that the use of traditional ammunition is a threat to wildlife populations or to humans that would warrant such a drastic action. We must let the Department of the Interior know that requiring the use of alternative, non-lead ammunition, is nothing more than a back-door way to ban hunting by raising the price of participating in an American sporting tradition.
