OSHA- Wants to BAN AMMO SALES where guns are sold / classify ALL AMMO as EXPLOSIVES!

OSHA has proposed new regulations that would prohibit all ammo sales where guns are sold and classify reloading components as explosives. Urge all to contact your representatives (can be done thru link provided).

Some of you may have followed the recent threads here and here.These threads express concerns about proposed revisions to OSHA standards that according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation would effectively shut down the small arms ammunition industry.

I have spoken with both Browning and Hornady today concerning this issue AND IT IS VERY REAL. If this revision of standards is allowed to proceed, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BUY AMMO OR RELOADING COMPONANTS.

This is an e-mail I received just a few minutes ago from Kirk Jenson at Browning:

Hello John,

The VP of Research and Development along with one of our designers just returned from the semi-annual SAAMI meetings. Yes, it is true. I was going to send you a copy of the NSSF bulletin, but I see you have received it already. It is spelled out exactly like we were debriefed earlier. Hopefully the NRA will fight this with all of their strength. We have been urging everyone to call their congressmen to air their views. This revision would cripple if not completely destroy our industry. It is just the next way they are trying to put us out of business. I guess they figure if they can not get rid of the firearms, then get rid of the ammunition.

Best regards,

Kirk

If you follow the link above to the NSSF website, they have a boilerplate letter and/or the heading that has to be on any communication regarding the proposed revisions.

This link will let you find out who your representative in the House is. Click on their name and you should find contact information.

This link will take you to the Senate website where you can get the contact info for your senators.

This a copy of the e-mail I'm sending to my Reps and Senators. Feel free to copy and paste, modify whatever. If you want to copy and paste this post to put into any other forums you may visit, hit the "quote" button (so links will be copied) and copy and paste it.

Dear (Senator or Congressman) [fill in the blank],

I am very concerned about changes to standards concerning small arms ammunition proposed by OSHA (Docket No. OSHA20070032, Request to Extend Public Comment Period and Request for Hearing on "Significant Regulatory Action" as Defined in Executive Order 12866).

These changes will have the effect of crippling or killing the small arms ammunition industry and the consumer firearms industry soon afterward. As such this can only be viewed as a backdoor attempt to take away my Second Amendment rights.

I urge you to take whatever action is needed to ensure that these proposed revisions are not allowed to be enacted.

Time is of the essence, since the period of public comment expires on July 12.

Respectfully Yours,
[your name and contact info]

It will be interesting to see what the new rule that they propose turns out to be.

Still, I'd say the collective voice of hunters was heard on this one.

Do you know the definition of the word Fanatic.

Thats someone whose initial propsal goes down in flames so they re-double their efforts.

Like you I am anxious to see the new proposal. I can almost see their concern over powder and such falling into the wrong hands. Howsome ever the terrorists seem to be able to build bombs without having to buy manufactured powders etc. Look at Oklahoma City and the first incident at the WTC. The thig is the terrorists and illegal aliens can supply more ID paper work than the law allows. So what does documentation prove?

For a small price you could drive to Califonicate and purchase a drivers permit, green card and a Social Security Card in a matter of minutes.

Their original proposal STUNK to high heaven.

Best wishes, Bill
