SACRAMENTO, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- Last week, animal-rights interests – led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) – launched an all out campaign seeking the removal of California Fish and Game Commission President, Dan Richards, because he was photographed legally hunting.
At the center of the controversy is a photo in a hunting magazine of Richards’ with a mountain lion he legally took in Idaho.
Now, the California State Assembly has entered the fight. Recently, a letter signed by forty of the eighty members of the Assembly was sent to Mr. Richards asking for his resignation.
California’s Constitution provides the State Legislature with the ability to remove a seated Commissioner by way of a Resolution passed by a simple majority vote in both houses (41 in the Assembly and 21 in the Senate).
Please help COHA respond to this very serious challenge by taking action NOW! Write a letter to your Legislator voicing opposition to Mr. Richards’ removal from the Commission, today!
