How the closure of the Doe Run operation in Herculaneum, MO, will affect the future production—and, ultimately the availability and consumer cost—of traditional, lead-core ammunition remains unknown. The Herculaneum smelter, which has existed in the same location since 1892, is the only primary lead smelter in the country, producing lead bullion from raw lead ore mined in Missouri’s extensive lead deposits. Several secondary smelters, where lead is recycled from products including lead-acid batteries or spent ammunition components, continue operation in other stateside locations. The lead bars produced in Herculaneum have historically been gone to ammunition manufactures for use in conventional ammo components such as projectiles, projectile cores, and primers.

Gun-rights advocates are ready to launch a recall attempt aimed at some of California’s most vulnerable Democratic state lawmakers – and the party’s supermajority hold on the Legislature – if Gov. Jerry Brown signs some of the dozen-plus gun-control bills sitting on his desk.

Last weekend marked the fifth year Louisiana held an annual Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday during the first full weekend of September, when all types of firearms, ammunition and hunting gear sold in the Bayou State were exempt from state and local taxes for three days.
Now, a state senator in neighboring Texas is calling for the passage of a bill to implement a similar event in the Lone Star State.
Judging by the ratings, a lot of people have been missing the network evening newscasts, but it’s especially damning when even CBS News’ own White House correspondent concludes that you’re not missing much. Alex Rodriguez’ 211-game suspension by Major League Baseball led all of the network news broadcasts, even while U.S. embassies around the globe are closed for a week due to credible threats from al-Qaida.
I just returned from the 2013 National Right to Life Convention in Dallas, Texas, followed by a week-long visit with my family in my hometown of Laredo, Texas. Needless to say, the topics of Gov. Rick Perry’s second special session and pro-life legislation were inescapable.
U.S. Marine Confronts Dem Senator Over ‘Unsustainable’ and ‘Unacceptable’ Policies: ‘Lead Far and Get the Hell Out of the Way’

The Marine, identified as Shaun Adkins, said he was “concerned about the future of our country” and slammed politicians for “spending money at an alarming pace” and sticking with a system that is “unsustainable.”

That’s right. The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza used the announcement that Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down at the end of the month as an excuse to slam Sarah Palin, and the pope himself.
Man, does she live rent free in their heads!
The mocking was swift, sure and righteous.
