Environmentalist organizations have once again petitioned the EPA to ban ammunition using lead.

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Environmentalist organizations have once again petitioned the EPA to ban ammunition using lead.

The ban sought by environmental groups would not apply to ammunition used by law enforcement and the military. In addition to bullets and pellets used in hunting and recreational activity like range shooting, the petition seeks to limit the use of the metal in fishing tackle and weights.

Government agencies get a pass, but not private gun ranges, eh? These petty dictators have really only one goal, and it has nothing to do with protecting wildlife. They want to prevent private citizens from having access to ammunition, which in turn will prevent them from having access to guns.

    Well, Robert, those suffering from the “psycho-sexual abberation” of wanting to be “In Charge” have always proposed this sort of thing..I cannot name one famous genocidal maniac who was in favor of the “Peons” having weapons….Including the British Labor Party… and the rest of the Euro-weenies….


  • In a sane world, EPA would require the petitioners to show cause: proof that lead ammunition is causing statistically significant levels of environmental aberration. What will actually happen, whatever the outcome, is that the petitioners will validate the feelings a great number of government employees have about themselves.

    actually, this so-called law is a little step at dis-arming the citizens. it has nothing to do with environment but only uses that avenue to strike down Our rights in an otherwise free country
