LAW ENFORCEMENT GROUP SUPPORTS TRADITIONAL AMMUNITION BILL

The National Fraternal Order of Police has sent letters to the Senate and House sponsors and co-sponsors of the “Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection Act” (S. 838, H.R. 1558). This bipartisan legislation will clarify the longstanding exemption of ammunition and ammunition components under the Toxic Substance Control Act. The letter, points out that if traditional ammunition, which contains lead core components, were banned, law enforcement would face serious budget impacts because alternatives are more expensive. Also, ammunition containing harder metals such as steel could not be used because such rounds are capable of penetrating soft body armor and are prohibited by federal law.—courtesy National Shooting Sports Foundation
