This doesn't make any sense to me. Wow. I'm a pretty environmentally minded fellow, but this religion of the left, environmentalism, is economic suicide. Outside looking in, we are destroying our own economy and industrial capacity.

I'm sure we will find a way to keep procuring lead, but at a higher cost or by "alternative" means.

wow... An entire industry killed; and it has nothing to do with demand or labor/manufacturing costs or technical innovations. Government regulation killed it.

This impacts a lot more than just ammo; there's lead in all sorts of stuff.

Seems to be their plan. Take away any way our economy and 99% of the people are going to need .gov to survive.

So what happens if we get into a war with china? Keep buying lead from them to make bullets to shoot them with?
