I had not heard about this one, a quick Google search shows the eco-nuts and "Animal Rights" wacko's are opposing it.
I'm going to make calls supporting it.
UDATE - Passed!
The House on Tuesday passed legislation giving hunters and fishing enthusiasts access to certain public lands to pursue their sport and also blocked the Environmental Protection Agency from banning lead for use in ammunition and fishing tackle.
The Sportsmenâ€™s Heritage Act passed on a mostly party line vote of 274 yeas and 146 nays.

Now it has to pass in the senate, what will Pinky Reid do?
Will he still make a show of supporting gun owners and sportsmen now that he does not need their vote?
Or will he prostrate himself to the "Green" (Red!) eco-nut extremist who he have historically fawned over him?
