View Full Version : NRA Opposition to CBD Petition to Ban Hunting in Mojave Preserve

12-30-2009, 10:32 AM
On November 24, 2009, under the guise of protecting the Mojave Desert Tortoise, the Center for Biological Diversity and others (CBD) presented the California Fish & Game Commission (FGC) with a petition for rule making (Petition) that requests FGC make several revisions to current hunting regulations that, if adopted, would severely limit hunting in the Mojave National Preserve (MNP).

Because the Petition is not supported by scientific research and would unfairly restrict hunting, NRA and the CRPA Foundation recently filed an Opposition to the Petition with the FGC that explains why the Petition should be denied. The FGC, working with legal counsel for the California Department of Fish & Game, is now reviewing the Petition. It is likely the FGC will announce if the Petition has been denied or will be given further consideration at the February 3-4, 2009, meeting of the FGC.

A related alert was sent out by the NRA earlier today.

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with getting the Opposition posted on www.calgunlaws.com and thus have not posted it yet. I will make an announcement when it is available. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. It should not be long until it is up.
