EDGEFIELD, S.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- The U.S. House of Representatives will be considering HR 4089 this week.
This much-needed legislation would help protect the rights of sportsmen and shooting enthusiasts.
HR 4089 would:
- Reaffirm that fishing, hunting, and shooting are important and traditional activities that should continue on public lands.
- Provide a clear legislative basis for protecting sportsmen and wildlife management agencies from anti-hunting and fishing litigation and administrative gridlock.
- Protect the use of traditional ammunition and fishing tackle by giving clear statutory direction to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding their authority under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
- Allow the importation of certain legally taken hunting trophies that, through no fault of the sportsmen, have become trapped in red tape.
Please contact your Representative today and urge their support of H.R. 4089.
