Lead Ammunition Ban!<o:p></o:p>
According to NRA representatives who attended and testified before the Commission, the room was filled with NRA members and hunters who were there to make sure that that a California-style lead ammunition ban wasn't brought forward.

Thank you to NRA Board of Director Don Saba who gave a very powerful presentation debunking the "junk science" put forth by the advocates of the California lead ammunition ban. Thanks to Board of Director Todd Rathner, who spoke on behalf of NRA's official position, and all the NRA members who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the meeting and voice their opposition!
