Back Door Gun Control Moves Forward
Cross-Posted at Right Wing News

There are numerous alarming reasons why the US government and the military have been buying up all the ammo. Here’s one of them. Obama and the EPA just shut down the last lead smelting plant in the US. They raised the EPA regulations by 10 fold and it would have cost the plant $100 million to comply. You can own all the guns you want, but if you can’t get ammo, you are out of luck.

Remember when Obama promised his minions that he was working on gun control behind the scenes? Welcome to it. Now, all domestic mined lead ore will have to be shipped overseas, refined and then shipped back to the US. Not only will ammo now be even harder to come by, the demand and the process of supply will cause the price to skyrocket even more. And ponder this… there is an excellent chance that Obama will rig the market to where all ammo has to be purchased from a government entity instituting de facto ammo registration. So much for the Second Amendment. There has not been a peep about this in the major news outlets and it is done. With the US no longer producing lead, all supplies will now have to come from China, Australia or Peru, with the overwhelming emphasis on China. More redistribution of wealth; more economic and liberty crippling of the US on tap.

The asshats at the EPA (evil protection agency) had this to say:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the company “made a business decision” to shut down the smelter instead of installing pollution control technologies needed to reduce sulfur dioxide and lead emissions as required by the Clean Air Act.

The Doe Run Co. announced last year that it had dropped plans to build a new lead processing facility in Herculaneum that would have used a new, cleaner lead production technology. The company cited the $100 million project as too financially risky.

The EPA is playing Mafioso I guess — we didn’t make them shut down, they made a business decision. In other words, they couldn’t pay the extortion, so the thugs shut them down. I’m pretty sure that Americans are getting ready to make their own business decision regarding the Marxists and I don’t think it will be pleasant. But Marxists will do or die and are doubling down on the destruction of energy in America, our way of life and the Constitution.

The smelting plant has known since 2010 this was coming. They couldn’t stop it and no one else rose up to stop it either. The business had been in production for 120 years and now goes the way of our auto industry.

The military’s obsession with ammo was related to security and supply. They knew this was coming too, so they bought up all they could get before the plug was pulled. Screw the average American. It’s as Chris Muir said, he’s not as worried about where the bullets will come from, as much as how the government will deliver them and I’m right there with him on that one.

So, back door gun control is moving forward and while we are all distracted with shiny stuff, our Second Amendment rights are just about gone. Obama is one Marxist dictator who is savvy at political chess. He has flanked the Second Amendment. Now it’s our move.


  1. The facility you mentioned is indeed the only primary lead smelter in the U.S., but that accounts for only a tiny percentage of total U.S. production. Well over 90% is produced at secondary smelters (for example, those that recycle lead-acid batteries) and new secondary facilities are being built that are able to produce much more refined lead. A new secondary smelter approved by the EPA and built by Johnson Controls opened in South Carolina last September with the capacity to produce more refined lead than is currently being produced by the plant that’s scheduled to close. Another secondary facility in Tampa recently expanded to allow a four-fold increase in production, giving that facility as well the capacity to produce more refined lead than the plant that will be closing.

    • Marcus, the company website says that the “secondary” refineries recycle lead-acid batteries and that 98% of batteries are recycled – for telecom (read cell phone tower backups), backup computer batteries, millions of autos, etc,
      . . . The “impact” of closing the only “primary lead smelter”, the only one that refines “ore”, i.e., makes NEW lead, is that all the recycling goes back into batteries – not available for ammo.

  2. Whether you are looking for dental cleaning, dentures, or even teeth whitening, always do your research online and see which dentist is right for you.
    As a dental hygienist you will mainly be working along side a dentist, however you will have
    many of your own tasks and procedures. Regardless
    of what brings you to a dentist, Colorado Springs is sure to have
    a reputable dentistry service that will care for your needs.
