NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- A Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) lawsuit brought against the U.S. Forest Service in federal court in Arizona has been dismissed.

The suit alleged that  U.S. Forest Service had violated the federal Resource and Conservation Recovery Act by not banning hunters from using traditional ammunition when hunting on some federal land in that state.

National Shooting Sports Foundation had moved to intervene in the case.

That motion was declared moot due to the dismissal.

      Ah yes the C.B.D. ! We have quite a bit of experience with those paper terrorists in NM. Their Kierling Suckling is a shoe thief. He got caught “red” handed ,if you will excuse the pun stealing shoes from Wal Mart in Silver City. Just goes to show the mentality involved.. Some of the ‘new left” after all arent just Marxists of the cultural variety , but of the political and economic kind as well. But I digress because 65 Million NICS checks in B.O.s first 4 years didnt happen because we are dealing with the tooth fairy. And we all know it and will conduct ourselves with that in mind. Molon Labe’! Not one G.D. inch!
