In a recent editorial titled "Another Misguided Idea From the Gun Lobby," the New York Times criticized the EPA for failing to ban lead ammunition last year. Cam Edwards speaks with Larry Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation who wrote a response to the article. He explains that the EPA was right in not banning lead ammunition not only because there is no scientific evidence to support that it is significantly harmful to the environment, but also because the EPA does not have jurisdiction to regulate firearms or ammunition.
