Re: Do we need preimun bullet's for deer?

HOGGETTER, does the 2011 law affect ammo only? Or do they have restrictions on reloading components too?

Re: Do we need preimun bullet's for deer?

Yeah HOGGETTER I've seen that page in the regulations of CO biggame. It's probably a way of softening up our attitudes in preparation for the ban. Or maybe it's just a disclaimer for the CDOW so no hunter sues them because he got lead poisoning through other means, like eating with dirty hands after reloading 1000 rounds of lead cast bullets or something. Everybody needs a disclaimer these days. No doubt lead is toxic and bad for the body. I'm not arguing that point. But, lead occurs naturally in the Earth and the lead we use in ammunition comes from the Earth. I believe that some tests have been implimented on a volunteer basis by some departments of fish and game across the country. Toxicity lead tests done on hunters and those who consume game meat showed no higher levels of lead in their bodies when compared to those who don't hunt, shoot, or who don't eat game meat. I use the term "Moral Panic" all the time because it's a tool that has been used quite effectively over many many years to get the masses of people to accept certain political agendas when in fact there just isn't enough evidence to sell that agenda to the public. They use propaganda and indirect fear to gain acceptance of there changes. I just don't know why many folks are so easily fooled. Can't Americans think anymore?

Re: Do we need preimun bullet's for deer?

I think Nevada and Oregon are going to start selling more ammo and reloading supplies. Is it me or does every state leave open holes to get around the law? I just can't figure out why they do that. The shocker in Cal is that the majority of the land mass is very conservative and are gonna violate it anyway but the majority of the state is liberal aqnd pass's junk laws they can't even enforce!

Re: Do we need preimun bullet's for deer?

Kalifornia is going to implode on itself one of these days. They're working so hard to do it to themselves. Yeah right now sporting goods shops and gun stores in those boarder cities like Medford and Reno are going to be doing a lot more business selling ammo and reloading componenets to Kalifornian residents living near by. I guess the governator has no problem letting revenue from it's people go to another states economy.
