Heavy Sigh...

 

I believe in being environmentally responsible and all that, after all, we are stewards of this land... but there are so many greater environmental threats than lead these days.

You could not be more right. I'm sure this group could come up with hundreds of other things to fix that would solve more pollution problems and be less intrusive to people than this crap.

Probably the only reason for their choice back then was the potential public outcry; post-Newtown they can do just about whatevery they want in terms of gun-related controls without as much backlash. Of course they still use the same excuse that they are not trying to ban or regulate firearms but are simply tryin got make them safer for the environment.

 

ARM_Alaska, I'm sure they have a very long list that is constantly having things added but unfortunately actual importance and inconvenience/intrusiveness cost vs benefit are not criteria they care about.
