NSSF, NRA, SCI JOIN IN SUIT TO PROTECT RIGHTS OF HUNTERS, SHOOTERS

  • NSSF, NRA, SCI JOIN IN SUIT TO PROTECT RIGHTS OF HUNTERS, SHOOTERS . . . NSSF, the NRA and Safari Club International have joined together to ask a federal appeals court to uphold the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and fringe anti-hunting groups against the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) seeking to ban the use of traditional ammunition containing lead components on USFS-managed public land. A lower court previously threw out the lawsuit because the claims raised were not “redressable” and the groups lacked standing to make them. The NSSF, the NRA and SCI filed separate amicus briefs in that case. Under the absurd theory espoused by the CBD and its anti-hunting allies, using traditional ammunition to hunt or target shoot constitutes a “disposal” of a “hazardous waste” in violation of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). NSSF is intervening in the present case to defend the interests of the firearms and ammunition industry and to protect the rights of hunters and target shooters to use their choice of ammunition.
