Illinois Senate Bill SB1985 - WILDLIFE CD-LEAD AMMUNITION

http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/full...Sess=&Session=

This Bill bans use of lead ammunition on state property for waterfowl or mammal hunting. http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/Bill...GA=100#actions

The sponsor is none other than: http://donharmon.org/news/314-harmon...ead-ammunition

Illinois Senator Don Harmon, Democrat, Oak Park, Illinois

Senator Don Harmon, an attorney, does not have an Illinois Firearms Owners ID (FOID) card and is not authorized to own a weapon or ammunition in Illinois.

It is doubtful if Senator Don Harmon, a self-described "life long Oak Parker", has ever even fired a gun

For those not familiar, Oak Park is an upscale, gentrified, Chicago suburb within Cook County. Although there are no woods, marshes or wildlife in Oak Park, there is an invisible fence.......very high property taxes to go with very expensive homes. It is 24 blocks West of Chicago's West side combat zone.

Please contact your Illinois State Senator and oppose the bill. Thanks in advance.

Illinois Senator Don Harmon can be reached at:

we knew this would be the last step, hopefully someone challenges it and takes it to the supreme court as ammunition has previously been ruled as "arms" same as the guns that fire it

I think this for the same reason lead weights for fishing have been banned in many places. It's not because someone is against fishing.

I don't think the people trying to pass this bill are against ammo, just lead ammo. Now whether that is good or bad is of course arguable.

Nahh they are against ammo.
Non lead ammo for waterfowlhunting is pretty much a given in many locations. Because fowl use small stones to help digest food lead pellets mean poisoned fowl.

Its the non lead ammo for mammal hunting that should concern you.

Lead in metal form ends to stay lead in the soil. Its a non issue that is being blown up to hinder access to cheap easily manufactured ammo.

good, i hope it passes.. its going to destroy dems in illinois, and/or force a supreme court ruling to make sure this thing doesnt happen anywhere else.. though i believe supreme court has already ruled somewhere that the 2A applies to ammunition as well

I "think" it is a federal ban for all migratory birds.
