Appeals Court decides for the EPA & lead ammo

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia last week upheld the dismissal of the latest lawsuit brought by anti-hunting groups petitioning the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue regulations banning traditional ammunition with lead components.

The refusal by the EPA to consider the petition was challenged by the anti-hunting petitioners in federal court in 2013.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, joined the lawsuit on the side of the EPA to ensure that interests of industry and hunters were properly represented.

The US District Court for the District of Columbia had ruled that the EPA had properly dismissed the petition filed under the Toxic Substances Control Act. The petitioners appealed that ruling to the US Court of Appeals, which heard the case in late October.$file/13-5228-1528839.pdf

This seems to be an annual occurrence. I’m sure the antis will be back for more.
