Interesting email I just received.

Ivory Ban - The Presidential Advisory Committee that met 12/16/13 does plan
to recommend a total ban on ivory sales, within the US, to the task force on
Wildlife Trafficking. If you want to oppose that action please email ACWT@FWS.GOV
before December 28th when they file their report. I have
attached a letter you can use but feel free to change it as may fit your
interests and work.
This is not a ban on new ivory but rather a ban on the sale of ALL ivory
that is in any form. This includes pre-ban and antique ivory in musical
instruments, knives, guns, cues, etc. and will make Grandma's piano illegal
to sell if it has ivory keys. This sounds ludicrous but it is true. If this
passes then it will take the form of a bill that will be set before Congress
Presently this ban on the sale of ivory is to include fossil mammoth ivory
as well as pre-ban and antique elephant ivory.
Please forward this information to everyone you think may want to voice
their opposition to this type of government control.
