CPSIA - Hypocrisy Contest, We Have a WINNER!
No one beats Congress at being hypocritical. In this case, please note the valiant efforts of two Congressmen to preserve the rights of National Park Service employees to use lead bullets and lead tackle in our National Parks. "Sports, conservation and gun rights groups had not been consulted, and they condemned the idea." Good news, however - the National Park Service has no intention of restricting you and I on the use of lead ammo or tackle, just their own employees. You see, poisoning is apparently not possible from recreational use of these materials. It is only through recreational use of rhinestones, library books, ballpoint pens, ATVs and electricity kits that serious health issues are possible . . . . Sure.
