The National Shooting Sports Foundation that is.

Anyway, another wonderful idea from those brilliant folks at OSHA...

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has issued a press release that details a proposed regulatory change by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that could adversely affect small arms ammunition supplies, artificially drive the ever-rising cost of small arms ammunition and impose undue hardships on both retailers and consumers. For instance, one of the proposed changes states a customer could not be within 50 feet of ammunition unless he/she is searched for matches or lighters. See the release here:

http://www.nssf.org/news/PR_idx.cfm?PRl ... 070207.cfm

TGSCOM, Inc, a family owned and operated firearms retailer, strongly opposes any regulation on the firearms industry, and its supporting industries, that threatens an American citizen's 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. We believe such ill-advised regulation of ammunition manufacturers and retailers will result in price spikes in ammunition that will make pre-ban magazine prices look affordable. We encourage you all to add comments to this proposed regulation here:
http://www.regulations.gov/fdmspublic/c ... -2007-0032

Remember, this is a proposed regulatory change. We have the right and responsibility as United States citizens to make comments and point out the shortcomings and potential consequences of these changes. It is important that we make our voices heard.

Sincerely,

Eric Thompson
President, TGSCOM, Inc

This sounds like one of those OSHA deals where they wrote a regulation intended for something completely different and then someone walks in the room (figuratively speaking) and says, "Hey, wait - this rule would be waaaaay too far-reaching..."

Hopefully, by pointing out the issue here they can rewrite it before it becomes a problem.

The last thing the gub'ment needs during a War is a slow-down of ammunition production because of a thunderstorm; not to mention all of us. :)

No they are not.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the shooting, hunting and firearms industry. Formed in 1961, the National Shooting Sports Foundation is a not-for-profit organization with a membership of more than 3,600 manufacturers, distributors, retailers, sportsmen's organizations and publishers.
They are for keeping the Tiahrt amendment and the House resolution telling the ATF to come up with written testing guidlines.
