Safari Club Files Motion to Dismiss Challenge to Lead Ammunition

On Friday, August 31st, SCI and the NRA filed a joint motion to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to force the Environmental Protection Agency to ban the sale of lead bullets and shot.  SCI’s motion asks a federal district court to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Center for Biological Diversity and other anti-hunting groups.  Motions to dismiss were also filed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the American Battery Recyclers and the federal government.  The Center for Biological Diversity’s previous legal challenge to lead ammunition failed when the court dismissed the claims based on procedural errors.
