Sportsmen, Conservation and Second Amendment Advocates Support Natural Resources Committee Legislation to Protect Hunting


WASHINGTON, D.C., April 13, 2012 - Multiple sportsmen, conservation and second amendment advocate organizations are calling for passage of H.R. 4089. Specifically, the Sportsmen's Heritage Act of 2012 reaffirms that fishing, hunting, and shooting are important and traditional activities that should continue on Forest Service (FS) and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands. The bill provides a clear legislative basis for protecting sportsmen and wildlife management agencies from anti-hunting and fishing litigation and administrative gridlock. H.R. 4089 is composed of four of the hunting and fishing community’s highest legislative priorities.
