Anti-hunting groups are working to ban the use of traditional ammunition with lead components. California has banned hunting with traditional ammunition and other states are under pressure to join the anti-hunting movement.
The economic impact of a ban on traditional ammo? Price increases will drive hunters away. In California, 36% of hunters said they will hunt less or stop hunting all together due to the ban. States will lose as a key contributor to the economy, bringing with it jobs and tax revenue.
This leads inevitably to an environmental impact. Fewer hunters mean fewer conservation dollars. Sportsmen and women pay taxes on every firearm or ammunition purchase – contributing to the largest source of conservation funding. Banning traditional ammunition will lead to funds drying up. These funds support the habitat and wildlife conservation projects that have helped populations soar in recent decades.
