Lead Ammunition Poisons Wildlife But Too Expensive To Change: Hunters

"On the day before President Trump's inauguration, the outgoing Obama administration passed a last-minute directive, banning the use of lead ammunition and fishing sinkers on federal land.

But hunters are hoping Trump will soon overturn it."
