    Have we had an endrun around the 2nd amendment

    http://www.libertyfederation.com/hav..._2nd_amendment

    There are numerous alarming reasons why the US government and the military have been buying up all the ammo. Hereís one of them. Obama and the EPA just shut down the last lead smelting plant in the US. They raised the EPA regulations by 10 fold and it would have cost the plant $100 million to comply. You can own all the guns you want, but if you canít get ammo, you are out of luck.



    Remember when Obama promised his minions that he was working on gun control behind the scenes? Welcome to it. Now, all domestic mined lead ore will have to be shipped overseas, refined and then shipped back to the US. Not only will ammo now be even harder to come by, the demand and the process of supply will cause the price to skyrocket even more. And ponder thisÖ there is an excellent chance that Obama will rig the market to where all ammo has to be purchased from a government entity instituting de facto ammo registration. So much for the Second Amendment. There has not been a peep about this in the major news outlets and it is done. With the US no longer producing lead, all supplies will now have to come from China, Australia or Peru, with the overwhelming emphasis on China. More redistribution of wealth; more economic and liberty crippling of the US on tap.

    The asshats at the EPA (evil protection agency) had this to say:

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the company ďmade a business decisionĒ to shut down the smelter instead of installing pollution control technologies needed to reduce sulfur dioxide and lead emissions as required by the Clean Air Act.

    The Doe Run Co. announced last year that it had dropped plans to build a new lead processing facility in Herculaneum that would have used a new, cleaner lead production technology. The company cited the $100 million project as too financially risky.

    The EPA is playing Mafioso I guess ó we didnít make them shut down, they made a business decision. In other words, they couldnít pay the extortion, so the thugs shut them down. Iím pretty sure that Americans are getting ready to make their own business decision regarding the Marxists and I donít think it will be pleasant. But Marxists will do or die and are doubling down on the destruction of energy in America, our way of life and the Constitution.

    The smelting plant has known since 2010 this was coming. They couldnít stop it and no one else rose up to stop it either. The business had been in production for 120 years and now goes the way of our auto industry.

    The militaryís obsession with ammo was related to security and supply. They knew this was coming too, so they bought up all they could get before the plug was pulled. Screw the average American. Itís as Chris Muir said, heís not as worried about where the bullets will come from, as much as how the government will deliver them and Iím right there with him on that one.

    So, back door gun control is moving forward and while we are all distracted with shiny stuff, our Second Amendment rights are just about gone. Obama is one Marxist dictator who is savvy at political chess. He has flanked the Second Amendment. Now itís our move.

    The M855 5.56 I purchase from Rural King comes from Denmark. I suspect that ammo will be relatively plentiful for the foreseeable future. I just gotta catch it on special to save a few bucks, but it is out there.

    The EPA and OSHA have both been involved ... not new news but bears repeating.

    I am well-stocked with ammo for when the SHTF or the arrival of WITCOHE. My only concern will be range ammo for practice.

    BTW, this is just one more "not one whit of difference between [Obama, Democrats, or whoever] and [Romney, Republicans, or whoever]. Thanks a lot guys.

    I've long thought the way they'll neutralize private firearms ownership is to deplete and then eliminate the supply of ammo.

    What's strange is that the gubmnt thinks that a bunch of unorganized LACs are going to be able to do anything with their small arms. Gun owners are not a threat to anyone. All they want to do is hunt or perforate targets.

    So by doing this the gubmnt will bankrupt a lot of businesses having to do with hunting, handgun manufacture and ammo production. Why? It will just harm the economy.

    At least it's only lead. It could be worse - it could be something ridiculously heavy and expensive to ship. (sarcasm)

    So, how much lead was imported here before the shut down of the plant? Being so much is sent over seas, and bought back for sell, I'm trying to understand much of a impact this will make.

    So...
    Light'em Up!
