The Center for Biological Diversity tries to ride anti-NRA fervor.
“We eliminated lead from paint, gasoline and toys. It is past time to stop the spewing of some 14,000 tons of lead into our environment every year from bullets. Non-lead bullets are readily available: there is simply no need for recreational lead bullets. There is no reason to expose pregnant women and children to lead poisons in hunted meat. There is no reason to expose communities near shooting ranges to toxic lead dust. There is no reason for 20,000,000 birds and mammals to be poisoned to death every year from ingesting spent lead bullet residues.” [NRAHostage.com]
