Gun owners across the country were given some very good news this week when the judicial branch struck down Obama’s plan to use the Environmental Protection Agency to target lead ammunition and make gun ownership prohibitively expensive.
Environmental wackos had long been petitioning Obama’s EPA to regulate lead bullets, but the U.S. court of appeals recently ruled that the EPA “lacks statutory authority to regulate the type of spent bullets and shot identified in the environmental groups’ petition.”
Now, a bill set to go before congress is about to enshrine this ruling into law.
The Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act of 2015 will say that the “ammunition, ammunition components, and fishing equipment are exempt from regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Toxic Substances Control Act.”
According to Conservative Tribune, the bill would also give gun owners more access to federal land, and it has already been endorsed by the National Rifle Association.
