New Push to Ban Hunting
Fox News Channel | 3/16/12

Posted on 03/16/2012 6:51:46 AM PDT by pabianice

Now on Fox. Mr. Donnie Dann of the Bird Conservation Network, is on, demanding that the EPA ban lead ammunition as it "is the most toxic substance on the planet and is poisoning America." A guy from the National Shooting Sports Foundation is trying to say that the EPA is, by law, banned from regulating lead in ammunition, but Mr. Dann, doing a great Doctor Emmett Brown imitation, won't have any of it. He displays the 1000 yard, fried, seeing things the rest of us can't see, stare so typical of the deranged left. His group has brought suit to outlaw lead ammunition and he ain't hearing any argument against his stance.

Should be played all through the election season.


TOPICS: Outdoors
KEYWORDS: ammo; banglist; democrats; envirofascism; fraud; lead; liberalfascism; vanity

mark my words, if this clown gets a second term then the second amendment will be attacked like we have never seen before.

The Govt intrusion into our lives will be so much in every aspect that it will never be overturned unless we get a Maggie Thatcher

Lead poisoning deaths = less than 1 person per year in USA

Lost a couple of birds that ate bird shot...Fish probably think they're peanuts...but generally they die from eating my worm.

Metallic lead in a bullet in the ground is mostly inert, otherwise old battlegrounds (most of Europe and large tracts of north America) would be unfit for human habitation.

...lead ammunition as it "is the most toxic substance on the planet and is poisoning America."

Environmentalists are proven liars. Period.

Whenever the environuts want to ban or restrict something it becomes the “most toxic substance on the planet. If they want to shutdown coal fired power plants the most toxic substance is mercury, if they want to stop duck hunting it is lead. Well sorry neither one is the most toxic substance on the planet.

"Thallium is frequently referred to as the poison of choice: Only a gram of the colorless, odorless, water-soluble heavy metal can kill. It is as toxic as arsenic, and even more so than lead."

I am pretty sure that certain snake and spider venoms are much more toxic than Thallium.

WBZ had a news item on early Wednesday morning about jewelry that was contaminated with the “Toxic Chemicals”; Lead and Arsenic. Then there was an ad from Jordan’s Furniture selling Periodic Tables.

If Barry gets a 2nd term he (and liberals in general) will see it as a mandate for their looniest ideas. This , of course, is a huge mistake on their part. At any rate I think youre correct. DC (liberals and republicans) will come at gun owners from all directions. It won’t be the simple assaults we’ve seen in the past. That and many of the restrictions/bans will be by edict (regulation, rules etc).

I can understand the confusion. I think what he was referring to was that Electronic Arts purchased the rights to Angry Birds from Rovio for $20 million dollars. Remember, cursors don’t kill birds, mouse clicks do.

“Not to forget it was used as weight in all the old wooden ships.”

And... Is still used for ships ballast. My sorely missed sailboat had 900 pounds of lead ballast as an example. Beautiful and sweet sailing Cape Dory that I sold in the 90’s. Carl Alberg (naval architect) had a fine eye and slide rule for classic designs.

I remember reading decades ago (back when the population of the earth was “only” 2 billion) that a water-glass full of pure botulism toxin, properly distributed, could kill the entirety of humanity.

Ricin from the castor oil plant Ricinus communis, a highly toxic, naturally occurring protein.

A dose as small as a few grains of salt can kill an adult.

The LD50 (Leathal dose for 50% of those exposed) of ricin is around 22 micrograms per kilogram (1.76 mg for an average adult, around 1⁄228 of a standard aspirin tablet/0.4 g gross) in humans if exposure is from injection or inhalation.

Ricin has been involved in a number of incidents, including the high-profile assassination of Georgi Markov using a weapon disguised as an umbrella.

The fatal dose of botulism toxin is roughly 1 microgram.

So the UK is free of heavy handed government now? It will take a generation of Maggie Thatchers to fix Britain.

agree, remember when Maggie went after the mines?
I remember one bloke right across form our house when I was a kid who was a miner and asking my foster mam , if he has non money and getting those packages from Russia etc then why doesn;’t he go back to work instead of fighting the police.

Then Maggie got rid of the trains which were ran by the Govt , then the busses went private, and even America still has a rail system which is ran by the Govt
