Numerous environmental organizations have used the legal system to push their anti-lead ammunition and anti-hunting agendas. Environmental organizations, such as Center for Biological Diversity and Sierra Club, annually file hundreds of lawsuits nationwide in order to implement environmental policies and regulations tailored to their so called environmental agenda. These lawsuits and legal challenges nearly deplete many governmental agencies’ annual budgets, in defending their policies and regulations against meritless claims.
Hunting, recreational shooting and affiliated organizations such as The National Rifle Association (NRA), Safari Club International and National Shooting Sports Foundation have successfully intervened in numerous cases to defend the shooting sports industry and defeat the anti-lead ammunition’s campaign to ban lead ammunition nationwide. Additionally, the NRA has actively engaged anti-lead ammunition and anti-lead hunting activists in numerous legal challenges within the context of the regulatory process to expose the “faulty science” and information behind their attempts to ban lead ammunition.
Recognizing that these environmental groups, attempting to ban the use of lead ammunition, base their claims on “faulty science,” the NRA and affiliated groups remain vigilant in their desire to defend the use of lead ammunition and to preserve America’s “traditional hunting heritage.”
