What did you expect from the NRA? Compliance? Anything that threatens their masculinity...oops! Did I just say that?
True sportmen I would imagine, could see the good in this measure wanting the best for wildlife in order to continue to be healthy enough to eat. ( I don't condone hunting, but it's not going away ). If you are stuck with the bullets, maybe there could be some sort of exchange system. Would you really want to consume game/fish (non-mercury posioned ones) with lead in it?(this is in answer to the "reason" to eat wild food as opposed to that which is factory farmed).

Neanderthal men with their guns and bullets ( and some crazy political woman you have in the US, as well, I believe? ) - and lazy anglers. The number of swans and ducks that get injured and caught in the UK because men have this inane need to sit on a river bank, dangling a stick with a line in the water. . . and too damn lazy to clear their property away properly.

The Environmental Protection they do anything to actually protect the environment? Yet another misnamed, useless government agency.

We the people need to take action. Stop buying certain products. This will force the manufacturers to change the way they do things.
