The EPA has been trying for several years to have lead-based ammunition declared as an environmental hazard so that it can be regulated by federal law. Another lame, short-sighted attempt at disarming the public. And the educated fools in that bureaucracy don’t even realize that such legislation would also disarm the police and the military.

Actually, IIRC lead-based ammunition was specifically excluding from the act enabling the EPA, and EPA has, shockingly, informed tree huggers petitioning for regulation of this fact on more than one occasion.

They would shift to alternative materials. Banning lead ammo is a narrlowly-targeted legal attack aimed at reloaders.

BTW, ChiFi's husband, Richard Blum, is a big time investor in tungsten ammo with the metal sourced from China (long thread, but worth it).
