Interior Secretary repeals Barack Obama’s ban on lead ammunition
When the Obama regime failed to implement gun control laws it focused on ammunition instead and the day before he left office a ban on lead ammunition on Federal land was signed into law.
The ban was contained in Director’s Order 219–from National Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe–and it required regional directors to work with state-level agencies to begin phasing out the use of lead ammunition on Federal land. This included banning lead ammunition in “National Parks, tribal lands and national wildlife refuges in order to mirror policies in states where traditional ammunition is already restricted.”
Of course this went unnoticed by most Americans and I have to admit I did not hear about it until today when, as his first act as Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke repealed the ban.
Here is more:
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke signed a Secretarial Order on Thursday repealing the lead ammunition ban issued the day before Barack Obama left office.
It is interesting to note that Thursday was Zinke’s first day as Interior Secretary and repealing the onerous ban one of his first actions.
Zinke overturned this ban with Secretarial Order 3346.
S.O. 3346 “revokes Director’s Order 219.” Moreover, S.O. 3346 is effective immediately.
Chalk one up to the good guys.
