Lead bullets under fire: Senate bill would protect ammunition from EPA grasp
Should President Obama win in November, it's a certainty he'll try once again to ban lead ammunition. Just two months after he moved into the White House, the National Park Service suddenly announced it was banning lead bullets from its parks. The blowback from sportsmen was intense, so the agency backed down. Mr. Obama surely will exert "more flexibility" in a second term to accomplish this backdoor assault on the Second Amendment.Sen. Jon Tester, Montana Democrat, introduced a bill to make sure that can't happen. Just before the Senate adjourned Saturday to go campaigning, the body voted 84 7 to take up the Sportsmen Act during the Nov. 13 lame duck session.
