Bishop Statement on Secretarial Order to Lift the Lead Ammunition Ban


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 2, 2017 -

Today, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke issued a Secretarial Order 3346 to lift the ban on traditional lead based ammunition and tackle on federal lands. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:  

“Americans have seen their access to federal lands and Second Amendment rights deliberately eroded for decades by liberals and special interest groups in Washington. Issued in secret and without people’s input, this ban was wrong and would do nothing to benefit fish and wildlife. Today’s order represents an important check on executive abuse and reverses what was a deliberate attack on Americans’ fundamental rights and privileges.”

Background
The House passed H.R. 2406, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act (SHARE Act), last Congress. The SHARE Act included provisions to eliminate the burdensome regulatory requirements impeding hunting opportunities including the regulation of lead ammunition.
