The sportsmen's act just got killed by Republican Senator Jeff Sessions who was mad that it cost a million and a half a year (we spend more than that enlarging the women's senate bathroom) and it increased the duck stamp and Sessions wanted congress to be the only one able to raise stamp prices.
No relief from law suits on lead bullets.
Tens of millions for shooting ranges.
Tons of access to public lands.
I doubt they have time to bring it up again before the new congress. So it will have to pass both houses again. And maybe things won't go as smooth if crazy environmentalists have another year to organise.
Imagine what copper 22 bullets cost? Since when do Republicans vote against sportsmen? Straight party line vote except Olympia Snow who is retiring isn't she? and who comes from Maine where hunting is kind of a big deal. And Barbra Boxer of CA who hates hunting sided with the Rs.
I'll take it all back if they find a way to pass it, but R senators aren't on my good guy list right now.
Wonder what the NRA thinks.
