Default Write your Representative - Block HR 5820 which allows a ban on lead ammo

Congressman Pushes a Ban on Traditional Ammunition

Above is a link to the story and I suggest you read the bill itself. This is the newest attempt from U.S. Representative Bobby Rush, (D- ILL) (author of HR 45) to try and drive out the 2nd amendment. This bill allows the EPA to categorize lead ammunition as dangerous and ban it. Write your representative and stop it before it goes anywhere.
