    Does anyone know if the products of the combustion of smokeless powder are considered pollutants?
    If so, are they the so-called "greenhouse gases", or some other nasty stuff that kills trees and flowers?

    If these byproducts are pollutants, what do you reckon are the cumulative pollution effects of burning smokeless powder?

    I can see those to femiNazis, Barbara Boxass, and Nancy Pelussy* trying to outlaw guns because they pollute.

    God, I am glad she left my state to go to the Land of Fruits & Nuts, with Babs Milkulski we are in bad enough shape.

    Check with the pistoleros, but lead dust can be a problem at in-door ranges.

    The nitrogen in gun smoke is a good fertilizer. The burnt cellulose is biodegradable.

    Pat is right, look at a trap field between the trap house and 16 yard line and see how much greener the grass is.

    It's a proven fact that gunsmoke contributes to global warming. I know this because smokerz and his pal Albert Gore told me so.

    No, cause the nitrogen compounds are good for stuff that grows and the more stuff that grows cleans the air. Part of the global warming problem is due to man's penchant for removing and killing poison oak and poison ivy.

    Brian- Like all green plants, Poison Ivy takes in CO2 during photosynthesis and gives off O2. If we allow these plants to grow in our yard and we no longer mow our grass, we would be removing more CO2 from the air. Cows also expel large amounts of CO2 from their gut. If you eat more beef, you might be helping the global warming problem that might exist.

    You could also help by selling your automobiles and using a bicycle for transportation. The money you would save by this action then could be given to the others in your community that do not like to work. They need your help and you could make Al Gore smile.

    It's a well known fact that gunsmoke cleanses the air. It is our civic duty to shoot as much as possible. In fact I just talked myself into going today. That is my story and I'm sticking with it.

    Love to smell the those paper Federal shells. Reminds me when I was a kid hunting with Dad. The shells smell the same.
