NO MORE LEAD BULLETS? ALL AMMO NOW IMPORTED?

I saw someone post an article on FB that all bullets now cannot contain lead (under Obamas EPA plan) and our ammo is going to have to be imported? Is there any truth to this?

None.

Most of the lead in bullets comes from recycling lead-containing products.

Invest in lead ammo and lead if you make your own. This is good to do whether or not there will be a lead shortage!

That's a far out of the box possibility that is proposed but so far from being enacted its not worth worrying about. Closer to earth, new EPA regs are closing the US's only primary raw lead ore to bulk lead smelter. There are huge lead mines in Canada and I believe Mexico ... where the US EPA has no authority. Until they ban the import of lead (or Canada declares war), we are fine

Federal firearms laws should conform to the states with lower crime rates, not higher crime rates.

Volumes of truth here.

I just remembered ... there is that "California" thing ... in California "environmentalists" are claiming that lead shot is getting into the environment and poisoning their state bird the condor ... they have banned lead ammo for outdoor use for most of the state ... this is true. Along with previous ammo restrictions, firearms hunting is now essentially banned in California.

Let me think ... where does lead come from? Oh, yeah ...

For a fee, I will accept lead bullets that are now illegal due to this EPA Action. Please do not attempt to fire them yourselves, the EPA has declared them unsafe.

I have access to facilities which will render them inert and into a safe configuration for disposal.

I can accept almost all common rimfire and centerfire calibers. For an additional fee I can exchange them for EPA-approved ammo.
