Look for the Obama administration takes up “ammunition control” as part of their varied gun control schemes being rolled out.
The former head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission has raised the issue in the Washington Post op-ed piece. She laments that Congress specifically prohibited CPSC from regulating lead in ammunition under various pretenses, and outlines several approaches that could be taken to restrict sales or purchase or possession of ammunition. Congress prohibited that, but never underestimate Obama’s eagerness to use his pen and phone to do what he wants anyway.
Yes, it all sounds silly and impossible to pass. But, she points out several other issues (gay marriage, etc) which seemed silly and impossible but within about 10 years became law.
Take these people seriously when they come up with these idiotic schemes. And, never underestimate the eagerness of the news media to trumpet misinformation and outright lies, or the stupidity of American politicians or voters to fall for these things as “common sense solutions” and be passed.
They will include cartridge collectors just as if they are potential mass-murders with whatever schemes they devise, probably incrementally tightening restrictions when initial efforts have no effect. (And, CDC studies have shown that none of the various gun control schemes have ever actually reduced gun violence.)
Read it and ponder. She is talking about you and your hobby!
