Well, one does have to wonder at the current .gov. Back in March 2009 the Department of Defense attempted to change its rules for the disposal of once-fired small-arms ammunition casings by requiring the brass to be destroyed, suitable only as scrap metal.
The reaction of the shooting community was swift, vocal, and effective.
Now the Environmental Protection Agency is considering banning lead in firearm ammunition. Click on that link. Follow the NSSF’s recommendations. Write your congresscritters, then call them. Comment on the EPA’s public commentary site. Write – hell, call – Administrator Lisa Jackson’s office and voice your objections.
Be calm, be collected, be polite. But be insistent and persistent.
UPDATE: It’s over. The EPA backed down.
