Proposed Federal House Legislation HB7547

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

Hunters already have the choice to use more expensive ammunition but this should be a personal choice not a government regulation until there is evidence of a population impact such as with waterfowl. Then when the facts are known a discussion can be had.
