VICTORY IN FIGHT TO PRESERVE TRADITIONAL AMMUNITION

by martin | Oct 04, 2011
Efforts to protect the rights of sportsmen and gun owners to use the ammunition of their choice received a significant boost last week when a federal judge dismissed part of a Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) lawsuit. The CBD suit challenged the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) denial of a petition to ban traditional ammunition and lead fishing tackle under the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA). The court ruled it does not have jurisdiction over EPA's refusal to regulate traditional ammunition because the complaint was not filed within the statute of limitations to challenge the EPA decision. The ruling does not apply to the lead fishing gear portion of the petition.—courtesy National Shooting Sports Foundation
