Ok .. yes i can see their argument about split-shots... and yes.. i can see it being harmful to birds and other animals.. but fortunately for me... i do not eat "swans, waterfowl, gulls, turtles, cranes, herons, pelicans" so the argument people will get heavy metal poisoning by ingesting said animals... well again.. look at that list. Who eats them anyways?

yes i know this is more about wildlife safety... but i am sure it will all come up when it comes time to banning the lead.

it will be interesting where this goes.
