Wilderness Bills Action Alert

Hello NRA Members and fellow supporters of access to public lands, Wilderness bills are popping up everywhere as the political climate is ripe for them and we need to let our elected officials know we strongly oppose this trend. We can achieve this in both the voting booth and through letter writing, which brings us to the point of this alert. Senator Boxer and Representative McKeon introduced the Eastern Sierra and San Gabriel Wild Heritage Act, H.R. 6156 in the House and S. 3069 in the Senate last May. It is an over the top bill that contains huge tracts of inappropriate wilderness, and Senator Feinstein is already working with wilderness groups drafting another one in Southern Inyo County. Early wilderness legislation designated truly remote wild lands, but today's wilderness bills contain mine sites and roads that are merely cherry stemmed in if not closed entirely. Wilderness advocates shaky arguments supporting designation are easily countered, making it readily apparent that their true agenda is simply closing Americans out of their public lands. They simply continue repeating their talking points, knowing that if enough letters are sent, lazy politicians wanting votes will buy into it. We need to let our elected officials know we won't tolerate this rampant land grabbing that is robbing us of our rights. I want to appeal to all NRA members receiving this to contact the NRA about getting involved in opposing this and future wilderness bills. These bills will impact hunters as much as any forest user group and having the NRA take a strong position is vital. Call or mail the NRA at: 800-392-8683 - Grassroots Hotline When calling request "option 4" to speak with a live person and share your comments regarding how you would like the NRA to use its considerable combined voice to help oppose bad wilderness NRA-ILA 11250 Waples Mill Road Fairfax, Virginia 22030 PLEASE SUBMIT COMMENTS AND PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO ANY FRIENDS OR ASSOCIATES THAT SUPPORT PUBLIC ACCESS TO PUBLIC LANDS. FURTHER DETAILS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE BOXER/McKEON WILDERNESS BILL: Maps associated with the bill are at: The original text of the bill as introduced on May 22. 2008 can be found at the following website but it hasn't been updated to reflect subsequent amendments shown on the maps. To all the signers of the petition to establish a wilderness alternative: AAPL has been gearing up for an assault on the rampant legislation of wilderness through the alternative designation that was the subject of the petition you so graciously signed. In conjunction with the Blue Ribbon Coalition, AAPL has begun to draft legislation to create a Semi-Primitive Backcountry Roaded Designation that will carry equal weight to wilderness, insuring reasonable access to all recreationalists on select lands not yet wilderness. We are busy gathering more grassroots support for this effort and look forward to working with you all as we bring this effort to fruition. Meanwhile, VOTE in candidates that support conservative values and stay tuned for more Land Use Action Alerts. Thank you for stepping up, Greg Weirick President-Advocates for Access to Public Lands
