Mission Accomplished: EPA’s Backdoor Gun Control Operation Begins


Allen West writes: As a former combat commander, I have been trained to look for trends. And I believe we’ve found a very disturbing one. It seems that backdoor gun control is in full effect in the United States. Why? Thanks to Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we can no longer smelt lead from ore in the United States.

The first contact the EPA made with The Doe Run Lead Smelter in Herculaneum, Missouri (population 2,800) was in 2008, but it was in 2010 that the EPA finally forced Doe Run to plan a shutdown. This plant has been in operation since 1892 but will finally close its doors this month. It was the last primary lead smelting plant in the U.S.

The closedown is due to new, extremely tight air quality restrictions placed on this specific plant. President Obama and his EPA raised the regulations tenfold, and it would have cost the plant $100 million to comply.

In response to the Doe Run lead smelter shutdown, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the Doe Run Company “made a business decision” to shut down the smelter instead of installing pollution control technologies needed to reduce sulfur dioxide and lead emissions as required by the Clean Air Act.

What this all means is that after December 2013, any ammunition that will be available to US citizens will have to be imported, which will surely increase the price and possibly come under government control. It seems this is fully in concert with the US Military and Homeland Defense recent purchase of large quantities of ammunition.

The effect is chilling: you can own all the guns you want, but if you can’t get ammo, you are out of luck. Remember when President Obama promised his minions that he was working on gun control behind the scenes? Welcome to it. The result is that all domestically mined lead ore will have to be shipped overseas, refined and then shipped back to the US.

    How’s about buy the copper jacket and filling it yourself.
    What not accurate enough for you precision shooters?
    I’m thinking urban survival not 100 yard shots.

    This is unreal,I am all about “saving the Earth” but at what cost, and come on really how much pollution could one plant be creating? If our testing of nukes did not break her, I doubt some smelter could. I really hope this gets turned around, or I may have max out some credit cards and get a stockpile going.

    With the new EPA Regulations, lead projectiles will not be allowed to be fired on land containing water, to ensure the quality of potable drinking water. Then gun confiscation and ammunition confiscation programs will go into effect. That, is, the Government’s plan, per Barack Obama.

    Allen West is exactly right!!! And…the socialist/communist/marxist agendas are in full force! Those Evil, Sneaky, Corrupt Bastards will do ANYTHING to take all of our guns away from Legal, American Patriots, so that we will be left defenseless little robots of the marxist, obama regime!!! No way in hell this will ever stop us Texans from upholding our “Right to bear Arms”!!! This is America NOT China or one of the other communist hell holes! We the People will make our own ammunition if we must!
