Despite the name – the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2015 – it isn’t just for Fudd’s. Yes the act does include a lot of things for hunters but it also includes many things for the Gun Culture 2.0 non-hunting shooter. Stuff like protecting against regulations concerning lead ammunition, support for the development of shooting ranges, and forcing the US Army Corps of Engineers to allow people to protect themselves with a firearm on Corps managed recreational projects. It would also protect knife owners and gun collectors who may have knives or guns with elephant ivory grips.

I used the handy-dandy action alert link to send a message to my congressman. It took all of 30 seconds. I urge you to do the same. We’ve been trying to get parts of this bill passed for the last three Congresses and now is the time to finally get it done.
