    You Must Act Now to Stop the EPA from Regulating Your Ammunition

    Just over two weeks ago, the U.S. Senate voted 84-12 to advance S. 3525, "The Sportsmen's Act of 2012." However, this week, by a 50-41 vote, the bill suffered a setback when the Senate failed to clear a procedural hurdle and move on to finish work on the bill. There is still time to get this critically important legislation passed, but you must act now!

    S. 3525 is an essential piece of legislation focused on the expansion and enhancement of hunting, recreational fishing and shooting on federal public land. But it's more than that.

    Of critical importance is the fact that, in addition to promoting land access, S. 3525 would amend the "Toxic Substances Control Act" to prevent this and future administrations from using the Environmental Protection Agency to eliminate the right of hunters, shooters and anglers to use traditional ammunition and fishing tackle. The bill would amend the law to clarify that the EPA does not have the authority to regulate shot, bullets or sport fishing equipment.

    The bill also allows for the importation of polar bears legally taken from approved populations in Canada before the 2008 ban.

    S. 3525 could come up for a vote at any time, so please act now to secure support for this critically important bill that would prevent the EPA from regulating your ammunition! Please contact your U.S. Senators TODAY and ask them to support S. 3525.

    You can find contact information for your U.S. Senators by using the "Write your Representatives" tool at NRA-PVF | PVF Home. You may also contact your Senators by phone at (202) 224-3121.

    I hope ppl are seeing this! WOW thats a scary thought this not passing and the EPA steping in to ban lead bullets would be as bad as A FIREARM BAN!! It would drive ammo prices to unfathomable levels and keep us (normal folks) out of the sport.

    I read it too and it, in fact, looks like it is very supportive of hunting and target shooting.
