  • Epa to ban lead bullets

    Here we go again. The EPA wants to ban lead bullets under the Toxic Substance Control Act. We really need to keep on top of this and contact our senators. This act would not go through congress, but once again go around congress so they could not vote on this. This administration is hell bent on banning guns, and this would be a good start. Buying copper bullets would become very expensive, leaving out many people from being able to purchase them. Just google EPA ban on lead bullets and many articles will pop up.

    Doesn't the EPA know that any projectile traveiling at 1250FPS is a Toxic Substance? LOL....

      So by that reasoning wouldn't they need to ban all sources of lead? If the problem really is lead, then they should ban all products containing lead. If the problem is really guns, then they need to shut up and sit down because that's not their department.

          It was not the EPA that was proposing the ban. It was several eco-freak groups. The EPA announced today that they were not going to act on the petition that had been filed by these groups. Check out this article for the rest of the story....

              EPA Denies Ammo Ban Petition

              Friday, August 27, 2010

              Responding to a grassroots outcry from gun owners, the Environmental Protection Agency today announced that it has denied a petition by the Center for Biological Diversity and other radical groups that had sought to ban the use of lead in ammunition.

              Agreeing with the position of the NRA and the firearms industry, the agency explained in a news release that it “does not have the legal authority to regulate this type of product under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).” Further crushing the hopes of anti-gun and anti-hunting activists, the release added: “nor is the agency seeking such authority.”

              “It’s outrageous that this petition even went this far,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA Executive Director. “We applaud the EPA for its understanding of the law and its common sense in this situation -- both of which were totally missing in the petition filed by these extreme anti-gun and anti-hunting groups.”

              Because the EPA has no power to regulate ammunition, it will not move ahead with a public comment period on the petition. However, a comment period will remain open until September 15 on the other part of the petition, which asks EPA to ban the use of lead in fishing sinkers.

              Be sure to watch for more coverage of this important victory in next week’s Grassroots Alert and in NRA’s magazines.
