OSHA regulation threatens shooting sports(Updated)

OSHA is proposing some scary regulations that would end your ability to obtain ammo at a reasonable price, if at all. The deadline for comments is July 12th, sevens days from now.

This is not an Internet hoax! Go to the NRA link and take some action if you value your right to bear arms...

Stocking up is important.
I got the letter submitted.
The anti gunners are trying to get us every which way.
Don't these people understand that without the armed citizen no one is free. America will no longer be a free country.

Call me stupid, but I'll stick with what the NRA is sharing for information. They might be a pain in the ass once in a while, but they do understand trouble when they see it.

OSHA has extended taking comments until September 10th. This gives all of us additional time to respond and to contact our representatives and senators. Folks don't let this one slip by...take 10-20 minutes and speak your mind and concerns to them. Keep it civil and positive, remind them that this sport generates millions of dollars in revenue and taxes.

here is the full text of the extension:

OSHA should simply require a lighting rod and grounding system to the foundation on buildings with explosives.

I know, it's brain surgery.

I cannot figure out, for the life of me, how to post comments on this docket.
I found the docket listing and all the comments that have been posted, but where do you
post your own comments? Government web sites- sheesh! This is worse (maybe)
than WDFW! I may have to just snail mail it...

I hate to burst your little conspiratorial bubble, but the "anti-gunners" (are you referring to, e.g., the Brady Center?) have nothing to do with this. OSHA is a federal agency, part of the executive branch. Remember who's in charge of the executive branch? Our good friend George W. Bush. Not exactly known as an "anti-gunner". Nor is Edwin Foulke, who runs OSHA. I have better things to do with my time than read this OSHA proposal, but it seems likely to me this is a case of a government agency having proposed rules that could have unintended consequences. Big deal. Happens all the time. That's partly why these public comment processes are so important. To view this as some sort of an intentional assault on your 2nd Amendment rights is kind of hilarious.

If you don't know what it says how can you view it as no impact for shooting sports?

And as far as Foulke goes:
"Prior to his nomination, Foulke was a partner with the law firm of Jackson Lewis, LLP in Greenville, South Carolina, and Washington, DC, where he chaired the firm's OSHA practice group. His practice areas included all topics of labor relations, specializing in occupational safety and health issues, workplace violence risk assessment and prevention, and accident and fatality prevention."

I'll just bet he's really pro-gun...:rolleyes:
