The NRA has successfully halted the proposed ban on lead ammunition with the help and support of gun owners across the nation. Cam Edwards spoke with NRA-ILA Manager of Hunting Policy Darren LaSorte who explains that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) denied the petition to ban lead ammunition in accordance with the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, which exempts cartridges and shells from regulation by the EPA.

LaSorte said that while the NRA’s argument was sound, the EPA’s decision was still a pleasant surprise under the current administration.

The EPA had been accepting comments on the petition by the Center for Biological Diversity since lask week. The EPA had a deadline of Nov. 1, 2010 to accept or reject this petition.
