EPA Banning Lead Bullets

The EPA was set to begin banning lead bullets and, suddenly, changed their tune. Really? I don't believe them or trust them, in any way. 

Look out, America. Every freedom we have is being systematically destroyed by our government. If we are allowed to vote in November (I'm not convinced we will be because this government is so radical and may conjure a way to prohibit elections) we must vote against every politician that believes in big government - no matter their party affiliation! 

To say our country is in peril is an understatement of the facts. - Reggie

NRA Warns Against New Gun Control Push ... From EPA

Chief NRA lobbyist Chris Cox charges in a letter to the EPA that the effort amounts to "a vehicle to implement gun control" and could end hunting by most who can't afford the higher priced alternatives to lead.

UPDATE: EPA Surrenders to NRA on Gun Control Issue

In a swift and unexpected decision, the Environmental Protection Agency today rejected a petition from environmental groups to ban the use of lead in bullets and shotgun shells, claiming it doesn't have jurisdiction to weigh on the controversial Second Amendment issue. The decision came just hours after the Drudge Report posted stories from Washington Whispers and the Weekly Standard about how gun groups were fighting the lead bullet ban.

The EPA had planned to solicit public responses to the petition for two months, but this afternoon issued a statement rejecting a 100-page request from the Center for Biological Diversity, the American Bird Conservancy, and three other groups for a ban on lead bullets, shot, and fishing sinkers. The agency is still considering what to do about sinkers.
