    View topic - Backdoor ammo ban afoot - OSHA wades in.

    Please read all the topic of this thread at the URL above... Action needs to be addressed by July 12, contact your Legislators and OSHA, and explain why this would have an impact on you.... In short this proposed rule would be the death of your sport!

    Proposed OSHA Regulation Threatens<br>
    Firearm and Ammunition Industry<br>
    <br>
    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the government agency charged with assuring the safety and health of America's workers, is proposing a regulatory rule affecting the manufacturing, transportation and storage of small arms ammunition, primers and smokeless propellants.<br>
    <br>
    As written, the proposed rule would force the closure of nearly all ammunition manufacturers and force the cost of small arms ammunition to skyrocket beyond what the market could bear—essentially collapsing our industry. This is not an exaggeration. The cost to comply with the proposed rule for the ammunition industry, including manufacturer, wholesale distributors and retailers, will be massive and easily exceed $100 million. For example, ammunition and smokeless propellant manufacturers would have to shut down and evacuate a factory when a thunderstorm approached and customers would not be allowed within 50 feet of any ammunition (displayed or otherwise stored) without first being searched for matches or lighters.<br>
    <br>
    NSSF and SAAMI have already had a preliminary meeting with OSHA officials to begin the process of explaining to them the major problems this proposed rule presents for all levels of the firearms and ammunition industry. Furthermore, NSSF and SAAMI are each seeking a 60 day extension of the public comment period (currently scheduled to expire July 12).<br>
    <br>
    NSSF is urging all retailers to contact OSHA directly and request a 60-day extension of the public comment period. Retailers should inform OSHA that the proposed rule constitutes a "significant regulatory action" as defined in Executive Order 12866 (1993) Section 3(f)(1) in that it will clearly "adversely affect in a material way" the retail sector of the firearms and ammunition industry, productivity, competition and jobs and that the annual compliance cost for all retailers of ammunition will far exceed $100 million dollars.<br>

    While we're on the subject....
    Try imagining the havoc either of the leading candidates from the Democrat party will cause to the shooting sports by executive orders worked through their hand-picked left wing cabinet bureaucrats. I hope my union friends remember this when the big labor bosses start handing out "marching orders" on who to vote for. They will be donating big chunks of YOUR dues money to the very politicians that will strip you of your rights.
    PATHETIC.

    This one reminds me of the time the Highway safety folks wanted motorcycle rules.

    Some idiot (won't say the state) proposed seat belts.

    This is nuts, they're going to get us one way or another. If they can't do it by taking our guns then they make the ammo so expensive we can't shoot anyway!!!!!!!!!!

    There is something about all 3 OSHA threads that makes me feel as if the bait has been thrown upon the water looking for fish to bite ... especially since all three were began by different people but are being topped by the same person.

    Something smells fishy about this ...

    Lumper,

    When I posted this thread on the 3rd of this month I had tried to find anything that looked like what I intended to post but did not see it at that time but I can assure you that nothing fishy was intended by my attempt for these three to be seen together and get all the posting going together. Sorry if my intentions were misunderstood.
