Just when you think things can not get any more stupid coming from the EPA,they put this out  3859 



EPA To Regulate Bullet Emissions From Private Firearms



Washington DC

The Environmental Protection Agency announced today that it would take action
to regulate the emissions that occur when a firearm is discharged. The current proposal
calls for ammunition sold to private individuals to meet minimum clean air standards by
mid 2016, and even stricter standards by the year 2021. Richard Shuckers, spokesperson for the EPA said "it's imperative that this agency take action to minimize a source of pollution that most haven't considered to be detrimental to air quality."
Shuckers also stated that currently, there are no plans to regulate emissions for ammunition used by the military or law enforcement agencies. He further added "the amount of ammunitiondischarged annually in the US by the public adds a measurable decrease to air quality, especially in urban areas where gang violence not only takes lives, but aggravates breathing problems that children and the elderly may already have."

Cathy Munoz, Vice President of Let The Children Breathe, told us that her group has
suspected that the burning of explosive powders in ammunition were a detriment to healthy air, but the money for research was lacking until recently. Munoz stated LTCB received funding in January to conduct live research trials and were astonished to find that
even .22 shells pose a threat to air quality. She went on to say "People have no idea the pollutant that are release when firing guns. Not only could a person die, but their asthma could be aggravated as well."
Several ammunition manufactures were reluctant to talk to us in person, but a representative for Horneydy, on condition of anonymity, said his company was already working with firearm manufacturers on a solution and said they expected to meet the standards well ahead of the deadlines. He stated "Although different types of powders and primers have been explored, our researchers feel the solution to the problem would be to equip firearms with a catalytic converter. Even older weapons could be retrofitted. We are going to go a step further and add a muffler to the firearm to cut down on noise during drive by shootings in cities."

Shuckers told us he was aware of the solutions being worked on by manufactures, and that he agreed their current solution seems to be the best way to go. He added "In the future,
states will have firearm emission testing centers." He detailed they would operate similar to auto emission testing facilities. "A gun owner or gang banger would simply come in and pop off a few rounds and we would measure emissions." "It would be a fairly straight forward procedure." "We aren't going to be checking for outstanding warrants or illegal firearms, all we want is to breath

Under obamy the EPA has went crazy. Every day I wake up and just can't for the life of me understand why anyone would have voted for him. I don't expect any democrat do act much differently though. They all want to take from the working man and give it to the shit holes that won't work so they will vote them back in office. It is just like them wanting to raise the minimum wage. The companies will just pass the cost on to the consumer (working people). So in the end it just puts the burden on us. The same goes for obamy care. Yes, children will be able to stay on their parents plan, no life time limits, you can get it even with pre-existing conditions but they won't cover you for the same price. It is going up, WAY UP. You should be able to buy what ever plan you want, not what obamy thinks you need. If you don't want a lifetime limit you should be able to buy a cheaper policy. If you don't have kids under 26 you don't need to pay for that.

I am thinking maybe Mexico should just do like Russia and take the southern states. That would be better than living with all the libitards.
