INTRODUCTION
Lead ammunition is under attack. Shooting is hugely important to the rural economy to the tune of £1.6 billion per annum and of great benefit in terms of wildlife management and conservation. If lead ammunition is banned, or further restricted, it would have a profound effect on all forms of shooting in the United Kingdom.Some environmental groups are campaigning for further restrictions, or a total ban, on lead ammunition. They argue that lead shot poses a risk to the environment and to human health. Scaremongering about lead has become a useful way to attack the sport for some who are fundamentally opposed to shooting.The truth is very different. The vast majority of evidence presented to decision makers to place further restrictions on lead ammunition has failed to pass rigorous academic scrutiny. We believe this is unjust, unfair and highlights a way in which science can be used and manipulated to suit a political agenda. Restrictions on the use of lead shot already exist to address any proven environmental concern. Any further unjustified restrictions could have serious implications for the gun trade, the rural economy and the natural environment.
