It appears that Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers feels strongly about preserving traditional...um...ammunition.
Following continued attacks by anti-hunting groups to ban traditional ammunition (ammunition containing lead-core components) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA-5) became an original co-sponsor of bipartisan legislation (H.R. 1558) to clarify the longstanding exemption of ammunition and ammunition components under the act.
We already have unleaded gas and lead-free paint. If traditional ammunition is not preserved, imagine the deleterious effects this could have. It could lead to perverse ways of killing, ways that go against nature. Children will be taught--probably in public schools--that such unnatural methods of killing are normal. Children could be placed in households completely intolerant of traditional ammunition. States would no longer protect traditional ammunition and the use of nontraditional ammunition could even spread to other countries.
Thank goodness we have someone in Congress who possesses the moral backbone to stand up for traditional ammunition.
