    Emergency Alert!

    More Victims Disarmed By OSHA Regulation

    THIS IS URGENT: Deadline for comments is 12 JUL 2007.

    A good explanation of this bizarre proposed rule here.

    I quote in part: As written, the proposed rule would force the closure of nearly all ammunition manufacturers and force the cost of small arms ammunition to skyrocket beyond what the market could bear—essentially collapsing our industry. This is not an exaggeration. The cost to comply with the proposed rule for the ammunition industry, including manufacturer, wholesale distributors and retailers, will be massive and easily exceed $100 million. For example, ammunition and smokeless propellant manufacturers would have to shut down and evacuate a factory when a thunderstorm approached and customers would not be allowed within 50 feet of any ammunition (displayed or otherwise stored) without first being searched for matches or lighters. NSSF is urging all retailers to contact OSHA directly and request a 60-day extension of the public comment period. Retailers should inform OSHA that the proposed rule constitutes a "significant regulatory action" as defined in Executive Order 12866 (1993) Section 3(f)(1) in that it will clearly "adversely affect in a material way" the retail sector of the firearms and ammunition industry, productivity, competition and jobs and that the annual compliance cost for all retailers of ammunition will far exceed $100 million dollars.

    You can read the whole nasty thing here. for directions on how to thread through the complex process of leaving your electronic comments.
    But, in the end, I live and therefore I am. I dont need any other persons permission to live or defend myself. I dont need anyones vetting of my intentions or sanity, nor approval for the self defense tool I choose or how I carry it.

    I dont NEED to explain myself. I dont NEED any reasons at all.
