No More Lead Projectiles!!
Have you heard that the government has outlawed the manufacture of all ammunition projectiles that contain any lead?
ALL U. S. manufacturers of lead projectiles must stop making them. The last lead projectile can be manufactured on December 31, 2013.
The stores have three (3) years to sell ALL of the ammunition that contains lead.
The ammunition manufacturers can no longer make lead projectile for ALL of their ammunition or for sale as components to reloaders.
This means no more lead .22 L. R., no more lead 00-Buck. Every round of ammunition MUST be lead free.
So you do not think this will happen!!!!!
Go back some years! Remember when the ammunition manufacturers were told to stop making lead bird shot. Now all the bird shot is made of steel. So I think I would believe the government will eliminate the using of lead in ALL of the ammunition manufactured in the United States.
But what about projectiles for black powder pistols and rifles? The projectile used in black powder firearms is 100 % lead.
Is this the back door attempt at gun control?
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has enacted a regulation that states, we can no longer smelt lead from ore in the United States as of December 31, 2013.
How high will the price of ammunition go because of ammunition manufacturers must now make projectiles from other metals.
If you reload ammunition and use lead projectiles in your reloading, you had better purchase as much lead projectiles as you can lay your hands on A.S.A.P.
With the companies who smelt lead closing their doors on December 31, 2013 because of these same regulations, you will not even be able to get the lead to make your own projectiles.
And what about the other forgotten ramifications that lead is used for! Lead is widely used in the plumbing industry. What will they have to use now? How much more will it cost the plumbers? You know they will pass the higher prices of what they have to purchase on to us, the consumer.
What about car batteries? There is a lot of lead in them. What will the battery manufactures use to make their batteries? How much higher will car batteries cost us?
What about the electronics industry that use lead solder in making electronic connections? What will they use?
What about the air conditioning industry? They use lead to solder the copper pipes together in your house. What will they be forced to use.
You do not believe me?
