You beat me to it, Ed.

EDITORIAL: Gun owners dodge the bullet ban - Washington Times

From the article:
This failed attempt to harass law-abiding gun owners using an unelected bureaucracy underscores the importance of perpetual vigilance in preserving the most important of constitutional rights.

This is from US News Article:

EPA Surrenders to NRA on Gun Control Issue

In a swift and unexpected decision, the Environmental Protection Agency today rejected a petition from environmental groups to ban the use of lead in bullets and shotgun shells, claiming it doesn't have jurisdiction to weigh on the controversial Second Amendment issue. The decision came just hours after the Drudge Report posted stories from Washington Whispers and the Weekly Standard about how gun groups were fighting the lead bullet ban.

We need to always stand firm against the opposition. They have no backbone and when true grassroots groups get rolling we are able to get things done.

Could you imagine the ammunition companies that would just go out of business because of the finanacial impact of something like this?

Just when you think the government can't possibly get any dumber, they prove you wrong!!
