Story Here

I thought ya'll might find this interesting. According to this article, the new OSHA regulations would seriously threaten the gun ammo industry and would send the cost of ammunition skyrocketing.

Don't invest in gold .. invest in ammo.

(someone doesn't want the average american to have ammo .. what's coming? )

And here I was wondering why ammo prices soared in the past few years...maybe part of the plan went through.

Let's see how more freedoms they can regulate.
Today I bought a .357, and two boxes of ammo.
That means I am a walking bomb.

Never fear. The NRA comes to the rescue again.

Labor Department Announces It Will Revise Overreaching Osha Explosives Rule

Friday, July 20, 2007

Earlier this week, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced it will significantly revise a recent proposal for new “explosives safety” regulations that caused serious concern among gun owners. OSHA had originally set out to update workplace safety regulations, but the proposed rules included restrictions with which very few gun shops, sporting goods stores, shippers, or ammunition dealers could comply.

The OSHA proposal would have defined “explosives” to include “black powder, … small arms ammunition, small arms ammunition primers, [and] smokeless propellant,” and treated these items the same as the most volatile high explosives.


On July 16, Kristine A. Iverson, the Labor Department’s Assistant Secretary for Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs, sent Rep. Rehberg a letter stating that it “was never the intention of OSHA to block the sale, transportation, or storage of small arms ammunition, and OSHA is taking prompt action to revise” this proposed rule to clarify the purpose of the regulation.

Every NRA member can take some small credit for this victory over stupid bureaucracy.

I am the NRA!

Obviously the idea is to hinder ammunition being in the hands of citizens. It's an end around to repealing the 2nd. It's like making gasoline nearly impossible to buy, but saying people are free to own cars. It allows only the very wealthy to have access to the product.

This law would suck for reloaders like myself. Thanks for posting the update Grady.

Yes Papa Homer...reloaders like myself too.

I have to laugh at the bureaucatic stupidity of such mindless drivel. When I go into places like Bass Pro et al...I see gallons after gallons of the coleman white gas and flask after flask of propane in those small bottles on the shelves. Also in some stores like Wally World gallons of that scented lamp oil. These bureaucratic robots are really thinking...they are on the ball.
In my minds eye...stopping people from smoking in these stores did more for safety than any other step.

Intresting that it only affects this one sector of the public.

I also think that this is a test pilot type program for future assaults on the ability of the public to access these products. It or another program with a similar fingerprint will soon enough be returninig.
