Shot Down in Flames

EPA Rejects Petition to Ban Lead Bullets

EPA today denied a petition submitted by several outside groups for the agency to implement a ban on the production and distribution of lead hunting ammunition. EPA reached this decision because the agency does not have the legal authority to regulate this type of product under the Toxic Substances Control Act -- nor is the agency seeking such authority.

Two things to say about this -- thank God, literally, and I am truly astonished. All this week conservatives and gun owners had been dreading the decision to come from the EPA. A trio of verminous, liberal enviro-fascist organizations petitioned that agency to ban lead bullets and fishing weights. Because of their "concern" for the "environment," of course, not because the liberals want to destroy the Second Amendment. I can't believe the EPA actually denied that request. Don't be surprised if Soetorobama replaces the head of that agency soon, or if he "retires" to spend more time with his family. Barry would love nothing more than to neuter the gun owners of America. This would have been perfect -- he wouldn't even have to have Homeland Insecurity confiscate everyone's firearms if they were rendered useless by lack of available ammunition. Score one for real Americans today.
