General Counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) Larry Keane tells Ginny Simone that the nationwide ban on lead ammunition sought by the Center for Biological Diversity and allied organizations is flawed on scientific and legal grounds. The science is bad because the evidence used by ban supporters applies only to the effects of lead on individual animals instead of looking at the effects of hunting on animal populations, and the legal foundation is weak because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not have the judicial precedent to regulate ammunition as a toxic substance. Keane explains that the ban is really an attack on hunters, who support the environment not only by controlling animal populations but by funding conservation efforts around the nation.
