EPA Outlaws Lead Bullets

Gee, does this mean the Department of Homeland Security will have to give up the 1.6 billion rounds of lead ammo they’re hoarding?

From Fox News.

When the last bullet-producing lead smelter closes its doors on Dec. 31, it will mark  a major victory for those who say lead-based ammunition pollutes the environment, but others warn ‘green’ bullets will cost more, drive up copper prices and do little to help conservation.

……Whether by state or federal regulation, or by market forces, lead bullets will be all but phased out within a few years in favor of so-called green bullets, experts say. While many believe that this will help the environment by keeping lead from contaminating groundwater, others say switching to copper-based bullets will cost hunters and sportsmen more and have little effect on the environment.

“Whatever the EPA’s motivation when creating the new lead air quality standard, increasingly restrictive regulation of lead is likely to affect the production and cost of traditional ammunition,” the National Rifle Association said in a statement.

Critics of lead bullets say that in addition to lead finding its way into the water supply and food chain, people who handle ammunition have been found to have elevated levels of lead in their blood. Lead poisoning harms organs and tissues and can result in brain damage.

“Switching to nontoxic lead ammunition will save the lives of eagles, condors and thousands of other birds every year – and, importantly, will keep hunters and their families from being exposed to toxic lead,” the Center for Biological Diversity said in a statement after California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a phaseout of lead bullets for hunting by July 2019.

It’s a lot of horseshit. There is absolutely no truth to the claim that lead bullets are harmful to the “environment” nor have they been medically linked to any damage to organs and tissues, except when gangstas use each other for target practice or when criminals and thugs get shot by citizens defending themselves and their homes.

This is part of Obama’s Green Agenda; from the “man-made climate change” hoax to outlawing wood burning stoves, to government light bulbs, to banning lead bullets, it’s a mandate for the takeover, control, and redistribution of economic and natural resources.

The government is running amok and needs to be stopped.
