And bullets made out of material other than lead are usually considered armor piercing and are therefore illegal. Do the math.
I hope you are understanding what is going on here. Our government is dealing with the Jihadis, our enemies, by accommodating and appeasing them. Our government is spending money to rebuild their Mosques. Our government and media are calling those who oppose the Amerabia Project, Islamophobes.
And, now our government is trying to do away with the Second Amendment. The Right by which we protect the First Amendment, free speech, freedom of conscience, and freedom of the private property which is our own individual selves.
The walls are closing in on us.
I'm not joking when I say, we need to pack up the Obama Administration, the media, and anyone who agrees with them, and put them on a train.

EPA Denies Ammo Ban Petiton
Friday, August 27, 2010
Responding to a grassroots outcry from gun owners, the Environmental Protection Agency today announced that it has denied a petition by the Center for Biological Diversity and other radical groups that had sought to ban the use of lead in ammunition.
Agreeing with the position of the NRA and the firearms industry, the agency explained in a news release that it “does not have the legal authority to regulate this type of product under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).” Further crushing the hopes of anti-gun and anti-hunting activists, the release added: “nor is the agency seeking such authority.”
“It’s outrageous that this petition even went this far,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA Executive Director. “We applaud the EPA for its understanding of the law and its common sense in this situation -- both of which were totally missing in the petition filed by these extreme anti-gun and anti-hunting groups.”
Because the EPA has no power to regulate ammunition, it will not move ahead with a public comment period on the petition. However, a comment period will remain open until September 15 on the other part of the petition, which asks EPA to ban the use of lead in fishing sinkers.
