Not good at all.

Thanks Obama! That idiot has filled his cabinet and agencies with socialist, collectivist drones, all of whom would get on their knees and blow him if given the chance. The EPA is the most fucked up agency of them all, right behind fish and wildlife.

So, now our military is dependent upon foreign sources for ammunition to protect our country. And how long do you think that those foreign sources will continue supplying lead if those foreign sources (or their allies) are targets of our military?

Who then is recycling all those car lead-acid batteries that they want you to turn back in? They are largely lead-oxide and lead-sulfate and need to be "smelted" to recover the basic materials. The "lead" plates are only a small part of the total lead, and those are usually alloyed with calcium for the maintenance-proof sorts, a bad alloy to use for bullet casting as it turns out.

Glad I have a lot of lead here - I recycle the stuff out of my shooting backstops...and buy new supplies from rotometals. Good outfit and cheap shipping, plenty of selection as well.

I will never understand why the Obama administration still allows us to have scissors. I am going to take mine for a jog while it's still legal.

SECONDARY lead smelters, which still exist in the U.S. The article was about the closing of the last PRIMARY lead smelter in the U.S.

I read somewhere that the batteries are being sent to Mexico for recycling.
I'll try to find the link.

Buy batteries & bullets.
