Obama places ammo ban on Federal lands on last day.


Just a little something as Obama walks out the door. Thought that we were done with this nonsense from this administration, but should have figured one more kick.

The Washington Beacon reports:

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe, an Obama appointee, ordered a new ammunition ban for certain federal lands on Thursday–his last full day in office.

The ban, which took effect immediately, eliminates the use of lead-based ammunition on federal lands like national parks and wildlife refuges, as well as any other land administered by the Fish and Wildlife Service. The ban is expected to have a major impact on much of the hunting that takes place on federal lands across the United States as lead-based ammunition is widely legal and used throughout the country.

Ashe said the order was necessary to protect wildlife from exposure to lead.

Gun rights activists expressed outrage at the last-minute move, labeling it political. The National Shooting Sports Foundation called for the agency’s next director to immediately rescind the order.

Let us go down a bit of memory lane and what our government is doing. Earlier post:

    Hey great article, nicely written! Not a great last move on Obama’s part, it has to be said…

    Also check out my blog about my first season as a beater! check it out at tootinghustle.wordpress.com

    It offers my opinion on hunting as a sport. I’d love to get your opinion on it 🙂

    Well this one slipped under the radar, good find! Trump ordered a halt on federal regulations until further notice, I am hoping they will review and reverse many of the last minute regulations and this is one that needs to go.

    I can’t get my head around the things that Obama does, but I think this is understandable because I can’t even get my head around single-celled creatures such as Debbie Wasserperson-Schultz, Liz Warren, or any of the seriously retarded females marching in Washington today.

    I know I’m wrong because even our gov’t isn’t this stupid, but isn’t this like preventing a dying patient from too much morphine?
    The animals being shot ARE GOING TO DIE, right? And we can’t expose them to LEAD?? and, if a shot misses, and a lead bullet is lying on the ground, can an animal EAT IT and then be exposed to lead? EAT A BULLET??
    I must be reading this story wrong, RIGHT?

    This is from a January 18th Daily Caller article. http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/18/trump-to-immediately-sign-as-many-as-200-executive-orders/

    Republican lawmakers are pushing legislation making it easier to repeal last-minute “midnight” regulations from federal agencies, and a bill mandating costly regulations get congressional approval before becoming law.

    Okay, class, who can point out the Constitutional violations in this sentence???

    “Ashe said the order was necessary to protect wildlife from exposure to lead.” No, it’s about trying to totally ban firearms and hunting. Gosh, it never ends with these people. Well, as y’all said, it will be rescinded.
    And I’m also thankful that he didn’t pardon Berghdahl or Clinton or many other wicked lawbreakers. Fox News claims it’s not over for her. She’s still in hot water. I say, let’s turn up the heat.

    …and it will get rescinded…his first order of business should be (and I do believe it was–according to the foreign news) was rearming our missile defense system with nuclear warheads, Obama had ordered a stand down of them–that man has done so much damage. chanting{{{{}}}} AMERICA FIRST.

    On a good note, glad to see he didn’t pardon Bergdahl or Clinton. wink.
