The good news is President Trump will be able to overturn this “final insult” immediately.
Like so many of his other anti-American actions, Obama apparently wanted to make sure his legacy would include a final defiant move against the 2nd Amendment.
In its final attack on gun owners, the Obama administration moved to ban traditional lead ammo on federal grounds and waterways on its last full day in office.
The ban, which includes cheap bullets and common fishing tackle, can be repealed by the Trump administration and was immediately condemned as an attack on outdoors people and rural life.
“This directive is irresponsible and driven not out of sound science but unchecked politics,” said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
“The timing alone is suspect. This directive was published without dialogue with industry, sportsmen and conservationists. The next director should immediately rescind this, and instead create policy based upon scientific evidence of population impacts with regard to the use of traditional ammunition.”
The National Rifle Association’s lobby shop predicted that the ban will be “short lived.”
In a statement, it said, “Like so much of what Barack Obama claimed as ‘accomplishments,’ it will hopefully amount to little more than a symbolic act of defiance by a president with little of substance to show for his eight years in office.”
