The National Shooting Sports Foundation supports S.1996, the Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2014. This historic legislation is simply the most important package of measures for the benefit of sportsmen in a generation. Sponsored by Senators Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), S.1996 will promote, protect and preserve our nation’s hunting, shooting and conservation heritage.In early 2014, the House of Representatives passed the SHARE Act (H.R. 3197) by an overwhelming bipartisan majority. The SHARE Act includes six of the provisions that comprise S.1996. Senate action on S.1996 in the near future will provide the time necessary to reconcile these two packages and go a long way toward securing enactment of this historic legislation during the 113th Congress.
Among the important provisions included in S. 1996, four are top legislative priorities for NSSF.
Hunting, Fishing, and Recreational Shooting Protection
Anti-hunting groups led by the Center for Biological Diversity are suing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to force a ban on traditional ammunition made with lead components that would devastate hunting and shooting sports participation, drive up ammunition prices on average by almost 200 percent and dry up conservation funding.The Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection Act, one of the firearms and ammunition industry’s top priorities, would clarify that ammunition is excluded from regulation by the EPA under the Toxic Substances Control Act. Hunters and shooters have contributed over $8.6 billion dollars to wildlife conservation through excise tax payments. This measure would help to protect and increase wildlife conservation funding through the Pittman Robertson Trust Fund, to the benefit of sportsmen throughout the country.
