Smith leads effort to overturn ammunition and tackle ban – The Salem News Online, February 9, 2017

One of the Obama Administrations last directives before leaving office was to issue new rules and regulations banning the use of lead tackle and ammunition on federal lands. I am an ardent defender of your second amendment rights and believe that those who hunt, camp and enjoy our federal lands are the best stewards of that land.

Outraged by this midnight attack on those rights by an outgoing Administration, I authored and led over 50 Members of Congress in an effort and letter to call on the Trump Administration to immediately overturn this directive when taking office. I am pleased to report that one of the first actions taken by Interior Secretary Zinke was to honor this request and on day one of him taking over as Secretary order the department to no longer uphold this directive.

Why shouldn’t voters be influenced by their faith? Seems to me that faith is what makes America strong. I guess the DNC chairman doesn’t feel the same. https://t.co/gQuIC9qMDQ
