And the Lead ammo ban. I have a link to the full text of Chris Cox’s article as it appeared in this months American Rifleman.
As California goes, so goes the nation,” is a familiar saying in politics. No one hopes more than gun-control extremists that the saying is true. If Congress and other states follow California`s increasingly aggressive lead on banning guns and ammunition, and carry it to its extreme conclusion, most or all guns will eventually be illegal to sell, and most or all ammunition will eventually be illegal to shoot.
They say it a lot, but you really should read the entire thing. One of the things he points out is the possible snowball effect of the lead ammo ban in “Condor ranges”.
And while California`s lead-ammunition ban applies only to hunting certain game within a portion of the state, it is inconceivable that gun-control supporters will miss the chance to cover non-hunting uses of guns. The most radical anti-gun group in the country, the Violence Policy Center, is already on record claiming that “any possible benefits of firearm safety training are outweighed by the risk of lead poisoning,” and that “states and localities should consider moratoriums [sic] on the construction of new ranges.”
Like I just said – read it all.
