OSHA Targeting Ammo Makers

Joe Huffman has a story, which is a follow up from his previous story about OSHA possibly abusing workplace rules. It is based on someone who works at a major ammo company, talking about how OSHA is demanding warning labels on ammunition:

Then a couple years ago OSHA approached them and said, in essence, “You need to put warning on all your products because indoor range employees are at risk from exposure to lead.”

What?

The lead issue is probably the biggest threat to shooting out there right now. Remember, Obama’s executive orders told every agency to look into ways to screw us. Has OSHA found a way? Or are they merely following the bureaucrat’s creed:

Regulate All The Things

    I’ve thought this was a major issue for a while. Regulate lead bullets out of existence because it’s hazardous while every other composition is banned because it’s “armor piercing.” If you don’t think that’s their goal I’ve got a bridge for sale in NY

    I dunno why they cannot fit the warning onto boxes:

    “May cause bleeding, death, and other side effects. Do not commit murder, mayhem, robbery, rape, or other violent acts against a potentially armed opponent or you may experience bleeding and death. Avoid inhaling the dust as well.”

    • Joe Huffman says:

      There are pictograms and specific warnings for each “chemical” in the ammunition. There are fire hazards, lead poisoning, etc. to warn about.

      They said the larger boxes do have enough room. But the 50 round .22 boxes may go away and be replaced with a minimum size of 100 rounds.

      • dwb says:

        Right, but you are missing the obvious. Isn’t “May cause bleeding and death” sufficient warning? /sarcasm

    Note that this is, basically, a follow-on to the gun ranges are full of lead thing I mentioned earlier – they’re going after the providers of ammo because ranges have high lead levels.
