EPA Goes After Second Amendment

Absurd as it may sound, the most immediate threat to our constitutional liberties is not the adolescent Marxist in the White House or our soon to be lame duck left-wing Congress, but the Environmental Protection Agency. The Supreme Court’s insane ruling that the EPA has authority to regulate CO2 emissions theoretically gives it control over literally all human activity, including breathing. Not even our constitutional right to bear arms escapes the reach of the unelected, unaccountable environazis of our horrifically metastasizing government’s most malignant agency.

The U.S. Supreme Court says Americans have an individual right to keep and bear arms. The EPA says the bullets for those guns may be banned as an environmental hazard.

The endless power grabs by the federal leviathan know no boundaries of law, science or even common sense. The Environmental Protection Agency of Lisa Jackson is seriously considering a petition by the Center for Biological Diversity, a leading anti-hunting group, to ban all traditional lead ammunition under the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) of 1976.

If the EPA approves the petition, the result will be a ban on all ammunition containing lead-core components. Bullets made of material other than lead are often considered armor-piercing by law and are banned. So this amounts to gun control by stealth.

As always with ecofascism, the eco- is just a fig leaf for the fascism. This has nothing to do with the environment.

[T]here is no scientific basis for restricting lead ammunition on the basis of protecting the health of humans or wildlife.

Sure you have a right to bear arms. But where does the Constitution say you have a right to bear ammunition? Meanwhile, the EPA itself has been stocking up on weapons.
