OSHA Contemplates Regulating Ammunition as Explosives
OSHA is now considering regulating ammunition as explosives. If OSHA has its way, ammunition will become very difficult to purchase, store, or transport and would seriously curtail the individualâ€™s constitutional right to bear arms without specifically banning firearms. One can only wonder how the courts would rule if OSHAâ€™s proposed regulation were challenged. I for one hope we never have to find out.
Predictably, the DemocraticUnderground.com crowd believes that those of us who actually believe in the individualâ€™s right to bear arms are overreacting:
Apparently OSHA’s new regulations will BAN ALL AMMUNITION FOREVER OMGZ. This is WORSE THAN NAZI GERMANY.
I’m not necessarily caring one way or the other, and think this is much ado over a proposed regulation that will likely never make it out of the comment phase. It’s just amusing listening to all the good Republicans bitching and whining all day.
Vladimir Lenin once said â€œOne man with a gun can control 100 without one.â€ Other despots made similar statements concerning gun control. What I fail to understand is that if Bush is the tyrant the Left would have us believe; shouldnâ€™t they also be concerned about disarming American citizens or otherwise restricting access to ammunition?
