They want to ban ammunition on environmental grounds.
The link has contact information for you to comment during this "comment period", and we at RSR strongly encourage you to do just that.
Side question - is there anything the EPA can't regulate on "environmental grounds"?
UPDATE 28AUG2010: Well, an adult at the DNC or the White House, who has actually read that annoying Law thingy and was old enough to remember what happened when Democrats pissed off gun owners in 1994 and 2000, must have given the Team Hopenchange kids at EPA a swift Tom's in the butt - the proposed ban is off. Well, its off for now, anyway. But be aware, dear readers - if these people would propose it once, they are sure to do it again. Remember that as you head to the polls in November.
And the spin by The Left / Mainstream Media that this was just about "hunting ammunition" is - to put it mildly - a big, steamy pile of horseshit. It was about ALL ammunition. Here is the petitioners concluding request (open the .pdf):
VI. DESCRIPTION OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS REQUESTEDSee anything in there about "hunting"? Me, either. (And neither did CBS News... -ed.) This is little more than a back-door way for The Ruling Class to get around, and effectively kill, your Second Amendment Rights.
Petitioners request that the EPA issue a proposed rule under section 6(a) of TSCA to prohibit the manufacturing, processing, and distribution in commerce in the United States of lead ammunition (including bullets and shotgun pellets) and lead fishing tackle (including sinkers, jig heads, weights, and all other fishing tackle).
