I was told by a very knowledgable man that Obama is trying to make lead illegal. He explained this is a way to backdoor "outlawing" firearms. since he can't actually outlaw them he is outlawing the material that ammunition is made of. So, what's the story about this? Is it true? Because this not only effects those of us who own firearms, but those who also enjoy fishing. EDIT: I do know that it is because Obama says it is a "health concern." I don't know about you guys, but I've handle ammunition as well as lead sinkers and never got sick. I've even used my teeth to clamp those one sinkers to my line when I couldn't find or forgot my pliers. And I've done that since I was about 5 years old.
