    2A - U.S. District Court Dismisses Lawsuit to Ban Traditional Lead Ammunition

    For immediate release
    Real Title: U.S. District Court Dismisses Lawsuit to Ban Traditional Ammunition
    May 23, 2013

    My Comments: Win on this one. There is also a current push by the CA EPA and the state to enact laws on traditional lead ammo. This ruling should set a good precident for fighting CA later.


    NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia today dismissed a lawsuit brought by the radical anti-hunting Center for Biological Diversity and six other groups demanding the Environmental Protection Agency ban traditional ammunition containing lead components.

    Traditional ammunition represents 95 percent of the U.S. market and is the staple ammunition for target shooters, hunters and law enforcement, with more than 10 billion rounds sold annually.

    NSSF filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit last August. The court today agreed with NSSF that EPA does not have the authority to regulate traditional ammunition under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

    ..............."There is quite simply no sound science that shows the use of traditional ammunition has harmed wildlife populations or that it presents a health risk to humans who consume game taken with such ammunition," said Keane. "Banning traditional ammunition would cost tens of thousands of jobs in America and destroy wildlife conservation that is funded in part by an 11 percent excise tax on the sale of ammunition. The protection and management of wildlife is properly handled by the professional biologists in the state fish and game agencies, as it has been for over a hundred years.

    In addition to NSSF, the National Rifle Association, Safari Club International and the Association of Battery Recyclers intervened in the case.

    Association of Battery Recyclers? Strange bedfellows, but I guess we will take help wherever it comes from.

    A district court (in DC) showing sanity and rationality on an issue related to 2A? Dang.

    I'm sure the ABR's compelling evidence of a crash in the lead market was what drove them to compassion. Can't imagine it was the impact on 95% of the ammo market.
