NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- Assembly Bill 711 is scheduled to be heard by the California Assembly Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, May 8 2013.

NSSF is urging all retailers, sportsmen and gun owners throughout the state to call and email members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee and your Assembly member asking them to oppose this anti-hunting bill.

If passed, this bill would extend the now-limited condor-range ban on traditional lead ammunition to the entire state. The ban could go into effect as soon as the 2016 hunting season.

This bill will have detrimental effects on the California economy, costing the state over 3,000 jobs, a loss of $320 million in economic impact and a decrease in tax revenue of more than $25 million. Please contact members of the Assembly Appropriations Committee TODAY.

Formed in 1961, NSSF has a membership of more than 6,000 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers.

      If you consider yourself an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, but are still fool enough to live in Soviet Socialist “Mexifornia”, YOU DESERVE WHATEVER YOU GET!!! GET THE “F” OUTTA THERE!!! MEXIFORNIA IS A LOST CUASE!!! They’ve sold their soul. The problem is that when these people leave, after they’ve F’ed-up the entire state, they take their Marxist thinking with them.

      My attitudes the same as Keith’s now. I used to care but there are a few states that I just say let’em burn in their own insanity. This is what you get when you pass foolish unconstitutional or ninny laws wrecking the great states in this country, look at Colorado sacrificing so much of their economy for legislation against gun manufacturers. The only problem is that the people that are behind these ideas have enough money to move on after the state collapses and spread the cancer elsewhere. I do feel bad for the patriots that are stuck in these states who have called it home way before these pansies moved in. They are the only ones I mourn for.

      This Gun Ban Scam is all part of the larger NWO – to create a defenseless populace unable to defend ourselves against their tyranny. 93% of the media is owned by 5 Corporations, and the same set (Types) of people leading the charge in the Democrat arena to disarm Americans. Lets call it for what it is. Part of the NWO takeover attempt by the Bilderberg types. Wake up America!!

      Can we move the anti-semitism to another discussion group? Maybe one of those run by paranoid, racist nuts.

      Otherwise the public will read this crap and think we’re paranoid, racist nuts.

      I agree – get the anti-Semitism out of here. We are NOT racists, and the race of whomever has NOTHING to do with anything. The discussion is about the ammo ban, NOT about some racist garbage. You probably would not have pointed it out if those companies were owned by Scottish people, or Irish people or Swedish people.

      CA has been fully taken over by emotionally driven illogical nanny state girly men whiners who can’t put logic together regarding firearms because they are scared of them. CA wants nothing but castrated servants of the state which is why we are helping 3 businesses (owned by civil liberties minded individuals) relocate our business out of the state. While the CA economy deteriorates, unemployment surges, and rights are stripped away, good people who believe in the bill of rights are criminalized. Screw CA.

    7. Look, I am a proud gun owner and a promoter of the 2nd amendment. Honestly, use logic. If even, copper jacketed lead bullets fragment upon impact and disperse small amounts of lead throughout game meat, this has a direct impact on YOU!! This isn’t necessarily from left wing liberal crazies. Please read this article by a medical DOCTOR who is also a BIG GAME HUNTER, perhaps you may change your position a bit when it comes to the clinically proven nerve toxin known as LEAD.
