Hey, Government, it seems we have a serious problem that can be resolved by the simple stroke of a pen, so fucking do something about it!!!

With the science surrounding the use of lead bullets and hunting, why the fuck are we still allowed to buy and use them in our province/country? When hunters kill an animal, they leave the carcass for the wildlife to devour, leaving shreds of the lead bullet for the animals to consume, leaving eagles and other small creatures to die a slow, painful death from lead poisoning.

We can stop this, it's too fucking easy. We have a responsibility to protect that which cannot protect itself, period, end of story. What are we waiting for? Do we make lead bullets in N.S.? Does our economy somehow rely on the sale of lead bullets? What is the fucking problem here? The house is in session, laws are being made, what's the problem? We pay our politicians well because they have to make the tough decisions, right? Then why after decades of knowing this are we still waiting for decision to be made?

As far as I'm concerned, we should have an amnesty period where the government buys back lead bullets at a ratio of 2 for 1, and after that, if you are caught hunting with them, you lose your guns, your vehicle, your house, everything. Period!!! There is no excuse for this harmful practice, we know better and we have a responsibility to change our ways. —Poprah
