    If you review the thread "is this true" you can get up to speed. Mr. Hennelly spoke with a very credible Paul Payne from the NRA and it leads to neutral.

    It's funny no one from CWA is stepping forward and I'm appalled that there is no out rage. I'm not even from this darn state and it sickens me. If some response is not made I speak for many big donors that I am done with CWA and i will be removing any stickers or any advertising for this non-profit.

    ==========================

    Dave and I just called Mr. Hennelly and he asked, "I would like you to clarify what happened at the meeting."

    I responded, "As you know, I wasn't there. In fact, nobody from the NRA was permitted to attend that meeting."

    As the discussion progressed, I asked Mr. Hennelly to send me CWA's letter of opposition to AB711 so that I could circulate it for him. He informed me that CWA is not in opposition to AB711 because he believes that "lead bans have saved over 1,000,000 birds since lead shot was banned federally."

    I explained that lead shot and migratory birds is an entirely different issue than the hunting restrictions proposed in AB711.

    We asked for "CWA to reconsider their position and join in solidarity with the other hunters and sportsmen in opposition to AB711." Unfortunately, Mr. Hennelly declined and said that CWA will continue to have a NEUTRAL POSITION on AB711.

    I was asked no less than three times, by Mr. Hennelly, to explain the events the occurred during last week's meeting. Unfortunately, I wasn't there so I cannot do so. So, I am simply reporting on the discussion on the phone.

    Paul

    I just got off the phone with DU state chair and I just want to say this to DU. Thank You for opposing legislation that is purely emotional.

    From www.ducks.org/related/ab-711

    "Ducks Unilimited is just one of dozens of conservation organizations opposing California Assembly Bill 711, legislation that would ban the use of traditional ammunition for hunting"

    Love it!!!! A national org that cares. Wasn't someone always asking what DU does in California??

    Sorry guys, I'm going to say it again.

    Just because lead is cheap and easy for ammunition is no reason it should be spewed into the environment in the form of shot or bullets.

    Lead is a known poison, especially to birds if they use it as grit.

    As the first environmentalists, hunters should be the first ones in line to ban lead.

    We have alternatives.

    There is no need to use lead.

    Fighting the ban on lead makes hunters look like unconcerned, uncaring abusers of the natural environment. And that's exactly the picture the antis want to paint.
