Re: Ammo Ban

This will never happen, the ammunition industry is way to big for the EPA to ban ammo. I can see ceratin types being banned or only only to be fire on private property or something like that. But to ban ammunition entirely would be the dumbest economic deceision ever...

Think about how many americans are employed by the ammunition manufacturing process. How much business it actually supports...

If we ban ammunition, what are the police and military going to use to protect our American freedom?

It will never happen...Obama would get impeached for letting something so dumb actually happen.

    Has the EPA lost its collective mind??

    There are varing levels of lead already in the environment. It has been there since the earth formed.

    Here is a U.S. Government global map that shows deposits of lead with concentrations high enough for the lead to be commercially mined. There are many times more deposits with lesser assays that are not indicated.

    Where does the EPA think the lead comes from that hunters and fishermen are putting back into the environment??

    The EPA can find better ways to use their resources to help the environment and to justify their existance than this lead issue.

    Just the humble opinon of this retired Mining Research Chemist.

    If you think the proposed lead ban was bad check out the Co2 ban. The EPA is just being used by the administration to regulate what they can't get the Congress to pass a law against. If they can't get it done one way they will come through the back door with the EPA.
