EPA Denies Second Part of Environmental Petition on Lead in Ammo and Fishing Tackle
From THE SHOOTING WIRE:


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has sent notice to The Center for Biological Diversity, the American Bird Conservancy, the Association of Avian Veterinarians, Project Gutpile and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility notifying them of the EPA's denial of their August 3 petition to ban the production and sale of lead-based ammunition and fishing tackle under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) of 1976. In that letter, the EPA said the petitioners "failed to demonstrate that the rule is necessary to protect against an unreasonable risk of health or the environment."

The EPA had denied the ammunition portion of the petition on August 27 on grounds they lacked the legal authority to regulate ammunition under TSCA.

The Congressional Sportsmens' Caucus and the American Sportfishing Association (ASA) have joined host of agencies and organizations are praising the decision.

It's about time REAL science started being used instead of make-believe "science" as the radical environmentalists have been pushing.
