In an earlier post I talked about the purposed 1,000% tax on firearms. I mentioned how these evil politicians keep coming up with ways to erode our rights. I mentioned that they could tax ammunition thereby making it unaffordable.
Well, this next scheme isn’t a tax on ammunition. They are coming after it in a more subtle way.
In an email I received from Gun Owners of America (GOA) they say that the Biden administration is getting ready to ban lead ammunition on eight National Wildlife Refuges in the eastern United States. This action is designed to slide under the radar.
However, their next move would then be to ban lead ammo on all federal land. This is about 650 million surface acres or 30% of the United States and will destroy hunting and recreational target shooting by making these sports too costly for the average American.
What is interesting is this isn’t the first attempt by politicians to ban lead ammunition in the last decade.
During the Obama Administration, the Center for Biological Diversity and over 100 anti-hunting and anti-Second Amendment groups petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban lead ammunition, but the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled the agency lacked the authority to do so.
Undeterred, the radical anti-gunners searched for other avenues to push their agenda.
Just before leaving office, Obama’s Interior Department tried to ban lead ammunition on lands managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (about 95 million land acres). However, Trump’s newly confirmed Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke, quickly reversed that decision soon after taking office in March 2017.
This just proves that these tyrants will stop at nothing to destroy the second amendment or any other freedom they deem we surfs shouldn’t have.
