California's Lead Ammo Ban

Was signed into law by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The California Fiah and Game Commission took that law and RAN with it, expanding the ban to include ALL ammo, not just centerfire ammo in the range of the California Condor. This brave new law takes effect July 1st of this year.
Check out their helpful FAQ sheet.
How very kind of them to acknowledge that nobody currently manufactures non-lead ammo in 22LR!
"So if you live in the range of the Condor, and you have ground squirrels tearing up your land and leaving holes for your livestock to break their legs in, tough shit. The Condor's more important. Unless you want to change to a caliber that does offer lead free ammo. Sorry about the expense there - there was going to be an ammo voucher program, but it wasn't funded. Now piss off and don't bother us anymore, peasant."

I used to be (stupidly) sympathetic to the "plight" of the damn bird, now I'm pissed and wish it wwould hurry up and go extinct -- it's on freakin' life-support only maintained by a handful of mentally unbalanced zealots for whom its become a career and an income, both undeserved.
