EPA can’t regulate lead bullets, says federal court

A federal appeals court denied a lawsuit Tuesday by environmental groups that the EPA must use the Toxic Substances Control Act regulate lead used in shells and cartridges.

“We agree with EPA that it lacks statutory authority to regulate the type of spent bullets and shot identified in the environmental groups’ petition,” Judge David Tatel wrote for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Environmental groups had sued the agency to do so, saying spent lead ammunition posed an “unreasonable risk of injury” to wildlife and humans who would eat the animals they kill. The groups rejected the EPA’s assertion that it lacked the authority to do so.

FK – I shot this deer with a .45 cal. patched round ball. I’m now eating him. It would take a screaming idiot or a lying piece of “Liberal”(commie) trash to say I’m in any real danger of lead poisoning from that.

Those who claim to love Human Liberty need to man up, or American up, to be PC, and stiffen their backbones and make our blood domestic enemies fear some lead poisoning for once because ultimately that is all they will understand. Their insanity will not stop until we force it to stop.

It’s way past time to prepare for what will be required.
