There are more than a dozen gun-control bills sitting on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk, awaiting his signature or veto. Brown has been uncharacteristically quiet about his stance on gun control.
Noticing Brown’s silence, the association representing active and retired state fish and game wardens sent a letter Thursday to the governor opposing the bill to ban lead ammunition, urging a veto. This is fairly significant since the California Fish and Game Wardens’ Association are breaking with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, which is supportive of AB 711, the lead ammo ban by Assemblyman Anthony Rendon, D-Southgate. The bill would effectively ban hunting under the guise of “protecting the environment.”
