|EU wants to ban lead in both shot and bullets
Not content with not getting guns banned the EU now wants to ban bullets with any sort of lead in them This one is deadly serious as it also includes shotgun and .22 bullets as well.
Gotta ask where was NARGC/FACE on this??Been going on a consultation paper since JUNE of this year.
European Commission: Banning bullets - do it for the Birds!
Trying to ban guns was not successful – next: Ban on bullets!
EU Commission has asked ECHA (European Chemical Agency) to conduct study and consultation to ban lead bullets.  To avoid mistakes done with misguided firearms directive, like missing impact assessment, they have started a public consultation for restrictions of Lead in shot in wetlands AND ”Any other uses of lead ammunition (than lead in shot in wetlands), including hunting in other terrains than wetlands and target shooting. Lead weights for fishing.”
According to their statement ”Modern lead-free ’gunshot cartridges, such as steel cartridges, are suitable for all types of hunting in wetlands and are widely available.”
In other words, EU is currently asking for public feedback on commission plan to ban lead (and copper) on ammunition – using the environment as an excuse.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
