EPA Abandons Proposal to Ban Lead Shot and Bullets

The proposal was made by some birdwatcher organization on August 3 and then opened up for public comment by the Environmental Prosecution Agency. That comment period was supposed to run through October, but after the bullet-ban proposal got public scrutiny this week, the agency suddenly remembered that it doesn't have jurisdiction over bullets. Really (PDF):

EPA has determined that TSCA does not provide the Agency with authority to address lead shot and bullets as requested in your petition, due to the exclusion found in TSCA 3(2)(B)(v). Consequently, we are denying that portion of your petition.

It took four weeks for EPA to figure out its own authority? I doubt that very much. Somebody at the agency, a libtard, thought this was a great idea. But that same somebody forgot that the Democrats, including the President, do not want to talk about gun rights because their always on the losing side of public opinion. So when this started to get public scrutiny this week, I bet you a beer the order to circular file this petition came from a political appointee.

EPA isn't all that popular at the moment after its botched participation in the Gulf spill cleanup. It also stands to irritate a substantial portion of the country when it starts its own carbon regulation scheme. As Ed Morrissey notes, EPA's actions threaten to inspire a bipartisan move to de-fund the agency.
