The Dallas Blog reported about a year ago about Texas EPA Czar Al Armendariz’s support for a study to ban bullets and fishing poles on the grounds that hunters and those who fish are killing their prey, which is harming the environment. Apparently, hunters are fired up over the issue.
Fox News reports that, “hunters are up in arms over an Arizona-based conservation group latest bid to get the federal government to ban lead bullets, which the environmentalists claim contaminates the food chain.”
The Center for Biological Diversity, which claims to have 220,000 members, including the Texas EPA Czar, has submitted a petition to the Environmental Protection Agency on behalf of nearly 100 organizations in 35 states demanding the EPA czar regulate lead out of ammunition.”
According to Fox News, “the environmental group claims the EPA has jurisdiction over the bullets through the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act.”
The Center for Biological Diversity, a 501©3 organization raised nearly $8 million in donations in 2010. They are using the funds to finance environmental lawsuits.
