    Re: Environmental Protection Agency Reviewing Petition to Ban Lead Bullets

    We already have to buy steel shot for our shotguns to hunt waterfowl, and trust me they cost a good penny to get. Luckily the past few years they have been coming out with some more affordable high speed loads, but still... Plus steel does not work as good as lead (not dense enough) and the other non-tox stuff is the equivalant of shooting gold out of your gun barrel. Rifle bullets seem ridiculous to even think about since you won't normally be shooting them over water anyways.

    You know, I read the thread title and thought to myself "I bet these right-wing wackos act like this is a decision that's already been made, completely ignoring the fact that they're just reviewing one of many thousands of petitions they get."

    I was not disappointed.

    It's the law everywhere when hunting waterfowl or any place where waterfowl congregate. Has been for many years.

    Yeah, I'm sure you'd rather wait until the law was passed before commenting on it ??? Like Pelosi, wait until it's passed so we can all find out what's in it.

    A side note: The lead shot/bullet ban has been tabled, but the use of lead weights for fishing is still on their radar.

    And I was waiting for some left wing jerk to pop on and poo-poo the fact that backdoor regulation can potentially impair the ability to exercise an important right.... I wasn't disappointed.

    I remember when they changed that. I think it has to do with the waterfowl potentially consuming lead pellets/BB's and then coming down with lead poisoning.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    More reason to disband the EPA and remake it with a far more structured, and controlled focus. Take away the free hand.
    You want to ban them for receiving a petition?
