    Hi just jot this notification from Hampshire
    Possible Banning of lead in Ammunition. A joint press release from WESA and AFEMS (see
    attachment) was made available. A few moments poking around on the Internet will show that what
    was meant to be an objective analysis of potential dangers to health caused by the use of lead in
    ammunition has been hijacked by certain pressure groups (this is my opinion, not NSRA s) in order to
    progress their ambitions to suppress both the shooting of game and shooting sports in general. A
    decision made by less than knowledgeable politicians could have a massive impact on all forms of
    shooting. This is why it is important to add your name to the petition being raised in the UK (see
    NSR, NRA, etc. websites) to oppose any such measure, see
    https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/112165 . Note that any ban will likely apply to all
    ammunition, small-bore , air weapons, muzzle-loading, shot shells. I strongly suggest you take a few
    minutes to get familiar with this debate.
