Obama Admin Lead Ban Reversed

Got the following alert from SCI today. As many of us speculated would happen, the preceding order didn't last more than a few breaths into the new Secretary of the Interior's tenure:

Secretary Zinke Reverses Obama Administration Ammunition Order

Mar 02, 2017

Safari Club International was one of nearly twenty pro-hunting organizations invited to meet with Secretary Ryan Zinke today, on his first day at work as Secretary of the Interior. We applaud Secretary Zinke for reversing Dan Ashe’s last minute Director’s Order that directed the phase-out of traditional lead-based ammunition and fishing tackle use on all 81 million acres of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands and waters by 2022. Former FWS Director Ashe issued Director’s Order 219 on the last day of the Obama Administration, imposing severe ammunition restrictions without input from the states, the public, and ammunition and tackle manufacturers...

    Maybe we can reverse at least a *little* of the world-wide anti Pb hysteria...

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Hmmmm- - - - -is lead being imported from Mars, or something? Last time I checked, it was still part of the periodic table of the elements and is as natural as Carbon, and a few other things the screeching greenies are trying to ban. BTW, have all of you signed the petition to ban Dihydrogen Monoxide? I hear it's being used to dilute good Tennessee sippin' whiskey! That should be a crime!

    DiHydrogen Monoxide is a major component of acid rain!

    Not Mars, but from Viburnum Missouri. Well, 1000 feet below there.

    While your technically correct, more correctly frozen dihydrogen monoxide was the cause of the boat sinking.
    Now, if I start whizzing FROZEN dihydrogen monoxide, THEN I'll be worried. Cause that's scary.
