Breaking: House Bill Proposes Repealing Pittman-Robertson Act​


You have a member of your States Government that is supporting this! Check out the list and contact everyone from your State that is supporting this garbage!


You can see them as one of those that are supporting this repeal, here:


Losing the Pittman-Robertson Act would be a huge blow to wildlife conservation. Here is a great statement in regards to this:
Posted this in the political forum, but wanted to put it here since it is a hunting issue.

HR 8167 isn’t being talked about much, but it’s horrible legislation for our wildlife resources and for every hunter, shooter and angler. It would repeal the biggest source of conservation funding in the world, and it would move our chair away from the table in conservation decision making. Pittman-Robertson was developed, pushed forward and supported by sportsmen. The only people for this legislation are republicans who are ignorant of the history of the law AND liberal environmentalists who want us out of the picture. Check the list, and make a call if your representative is supporting it.

I was just going to post this. The CA refuge system relies primarily on PR fund match for function. PR funding is around 75 cents for every dollar used on the refuge.

We sure have some dip***** in our legislature.
How could this even be an agenda item as our country folds? Insane garbage. We need a part time legislature.

The Left wants our guns and to defund the police and the Right wants to defund public lands.... politicians suck.

Steve... No need to ask why... It’s the Death by Thousand Cuts the liberals are so experts at doing.

Slowly... methodically using everything and anything to demonize, criminalize, marginalize and demoralize gun sport enthusiasts.

Doug Lamalfa is not anti gun. What is happening is anti gun legislators are proposing taxes up to 1000 percent on firearms they don’t like. We have a firearms tax being attempted right now in California. The legislation in question I believe is meant to protect firearms from punitive taxes. If taxes that high are implemented we are probably going to see a decrease in PR funds because people would not be able to afford guns. None of those new taxes are going to PR or conservation of wildlife. PR is caught right in the middle of a gun control fight.

This legislation will fully eliminate PR funds and then where will we be at. Without PR funds, might as well keep the refuge system closed.

Thanks for the heads up. Will call
La Malfa's office here and the rest of my reps.

Read the list of supporters. It's mostly a 'who's who' of Republicans like Gaetz, Cawthorn and Boebert.
