NSSF will intervene in latest lawsuit against traditional ammunition

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, will file to intervene in a lawsuit filed June 8 by the Center for Biological Diversity and six other groups in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., asking the Environmental Protection Agency to ban traditional ammunition containing lead components.
The EPA already has twice denied petitions filed by CBD to ban traditional ammunition, noting that it does not have the authority to regulate traditional ammunition under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
The lawsuit comes the same day that Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus co-chairmen Senators Jon Tester, D-Mont., and John Thune, R-S.D., filed an amendment to the Farm Bill that contains a number of sportsmen’s priorities, including legislation that has already been passed by the House of Representatives to exempt traditional ammunition from being regulated by EPA.
