Got a solicitation letter from the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) this morning…
He’s at it again.
I’ve told you to beware of an Obama sneak attack, and here it comes.
In the face a tough election year, Barack Obama and the anti-gunners are willing to do ANYTHING to infringe upon your right to keep and bear arms.
Right now, Barack Obama has teamed up with liberal special interest groups to use the un-elected bureaucrats in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban all traditional forms of ammunition.
That’s right, Obama and his cronies are trying to ban ALL your ammo.
By using the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976, they want to ban all hunting, target and self-defense ammo that contains lead, no matter how little.
Make no mistake — this is gun control at its worst.
Since your actions have stopped their plans to pass ammo and gun bans so far in congress, they’re using the old end-run.
Obama and his anti-gun cronies in the EPA know that by banning all but the most expensive ammo, they’ve effectively banned your guns in all but name.
Blah blah blah, ad infinitum, ad nauseam. Whereupon, at the end of things, they ask me to sign this petition and possibly send them some $$$$.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m as pro-Second Amendment as they come – in fact, I just took a class this week to re-upp my CHL (which should scare libtards no end). So normally I would have no problem ginning up some outrage over the whole schlemiel.
Except for…well, except for this.
In a swift and unexpected decision, the Environmental Protection Agency today rejected a petition from environmental groups to ban the use of lead in bullets and shotgun shells, claiming it doesn’t have jurisdiction to weigh on the controversial Second Amendment issue. The decision came just hours after the Drudge Report posted stories from Washington Whispers and the Weekly Standard about how gun groups were fighting the lead bullet ban.
The EPA had planned to solicit public responses to the petition for two months, but this afternoon issued a statement rejecting a 100-page request from the Center for Biological Diversity, the American Bird Conservancy, and three other groups for a ban on lead bullets, shot, and fishing sinkers. The agency is still considering what to do about sinkers.
The decision was a huge victory for the National Rifle Association which just seven days ago asked that the EPA reject the petition, suggesting that it was a back door attempt to limit hunting and impose gun control. It also was a politically savvy move to take gun control off the table as the Democrats ready for a very difficult midterm election.
Methinks someone at NAGR is Sorta Kinda Maybe asleep at the switch, y’know?
Memo to the NAGR: C’mon, guys. Arise from thine slumber and get some coffee in thine nostrils. In Other Words, guys, PAY SOME FUCKING ATTENTION!!!!!
