Banning Lead In Bullets

Politicians and bureaucrats have "jumped on" lead poisoning from bullet fragments to allow them to ban lead in ammunition because doctors don't bother to look for, and remove lead fragments from people who get shot, unless they're in dangerous places in the body. In the United States, testing for lead in the body in occupations where lead poisoning is likely is routine. Which proves they KNOW it is a danger, but still don't bother to remove them. It IS only a small number of people affected in this way, but I'm sure it looms large to the victims of such laziness. Dying from being shot has long been laughingly called "lead poisoning," but this proves it's no joke. It's a REAL cause of death. It's just yet another way to make buying and using a gun more expensive and difficult. (CNN)
