NRA Targets Center -- Help Fight Back to Get the Lead Out, Save Wildlife
This month the National Rifle Association devoted the front cover of its Freedom 1st members-only magazine to attacking the Center for Biological Diversity's campaign to ban lead ammunition nationwide (lead shot is already banned in wetlands).
The NRA is targeting the Center as its #1 enemy because it's used to winning and knows it's going to lose this battle. The Center won't give up until we've replaced toxic lead ammunition with readily available non-toxic copper, steel and alloy alternatives. The lives of millions of wild animals like condors, bald eagles and golden eagles depend on it.
The NRA has filed a legal motion to intervene in our lawsuit seeking to force the EPA to ban lead ammo -- so we'll soon be squaring off with their high-priced lawyers in court. The NRA is pulling out all the stops, demonizing the Center in their magazine and devoting its high-powered lobbying machinery to preserve its "right" to unnecessarily poison our planet and wildlife with outdated, toxic lead ammunition.
Please help today by making a generous donation to the Center's campaign to end the lead poisoning of America's wildlife once and for all.
