EPA wanted to ban ammo


Government cannot control and confiscate our weapons, the next step is controlling ammo. I read where a congressman said, ok, we can’t ban guns, but the Second amendment didn’t say anything about ammo. That rang a bell, so I went to my “way back”machine and got this post from August 2010. It didn’t go anywhere, but you bet this will be back on the front burner.

A gun without a shell is useless.. Bring it on EPA. Just in time for the November Election.
 
Remember this is a no-win situation for us, because bullets made of materials other than lead are often considered armor piercing by law. Copper is your basic material, and copper is expensive, and has much poorer performance properties than lead.
 

From The Wahington Examiner:

Here’s an astounding bit of government overreach:

NSSF [National Shooting Sports Foundation] is springing into action, as the public comment period opens on EPA considering a regulation that will ban all traditional lead ammunition. This would basically end the shooting sports as we know it. Remember this is a no-win situation for us, because bullets made of materials other than lead are often considered armor piercing by law. Copper is your basic material, and copper is expensive, and has much poorer performance properties than lead.

You can read the petition in favor of banning ammunition here, and if you can leave a public comment on it here. The EPA will be taking comments on this through October 31 to coincide nicely with the November 2 election. After health care and immigration, apparently the White House doesn’t feel it has sufficiently irked voters enough. Bringing the NRA and upset gun owners into the mix should really do wonders for Democrats at the ballot box. And we sure told them in 2010 didn’t we!

Bonus time. Two posts today!  A list of the newspaper folk’s location that posted gun owners locations.

    And the EPA might just get away with it. There is a gun club in Massachusetts which has been there for many, many years and for the last several years the neighbors have been trying to shut it down for noise reasons even though these people knew the club was there when they bought their houses. They were unsuccessful so they changed their strategy and went after the lead ammo for environmental reasons and now the club is no longer allowed to shoot outdoors. This will probably be the end of the club and I can foresee this happening all across the nation.

      That is one chilling story. There is a sky diving place not far away. The airport was once miles away. You guessed it. People moved in, now they are in court every other day to shut it down.

    I do remember that about banning ammo, Bunker. And Silverfiddle is right. They will continue to make living so difficult for everyone, that we will just be left sitting here twiddling our thumbs. They are very good at skinning cats…and it’s no fun being the cat.

    Some people want civil war so that the government can declare martial law. They should be careful what they wish for.

    This is how progressives work.

    They’ll do the same with cars. They won’t ban them, they’ll just make gas incredibly expensive…
