P.S. Yesterday, as expected, the NRA had its way with the U.S. House of Representatives. Republican leaders put an NRA dream bill on the House floor, in the immediate aftermath of the group’s national convention, and only two Republicans voted against the measure to allow imports of sport-hunted polar bear trophies; to make it easier to hunt wild animals in national parks; and to block the authority of EPA to restrict the use of toxic lead ammunition. See how your legislator voted on the bill and on an amendment that Rep. Gary Peters sponsored to strip the odious polar bear hunting provision. This bill is a travesty, and we’ve got to stop it in the Senate.
