Proposed OSHA Regulation Threatens

Firearm and Ammunition Industry

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the government agency charged with assuring the safety and health of America's work force, is proposing a regulatory rule affecting the manufacturing, transportation and storage of small arms ammunition, primers and smokeless propellants.

As written, the proposed rule would force the closure of nearly all ammunition manufacturers and force the cost of small arms ammunition to skyrocket beyond what the market could bear—essentially collapsing our industry. This is not an exaggeration. The cost to comply with the proposed rule for the ammunition industry, including manufacturer, wholesale distributors and retailers, will be massive and easily exceed $100 million. For example, ammunition and smokeless propellant manufacturers would have to shut down and evacuate a factory when a thunderstorm approached and customers would not be allowed within 50 feet of any ammunition (displayed or otherwise stored) without first being searched for matches or lighters.

NSSF and SAAMI have met with OSHA officials to explain the major problems the proposed rule presents for all levels of the firearms and ammunition industry. Furthermore, industry members requested a 60-day extension of the public comment period to conduct a more thorough review and analysis of OSHA's proposal. OSHA recently honored industry's request by extending the comment submission deadline to Sept. 10.

NSSF continues to urge all manufacturers and retailers of small arms ammunition, primers and smokeless propellants to submit comments on the proposed rule to OSHA. Industry members should inform OSHA that the proposed rule constitutes a "significant regulatory action" as defined in Executive Order 12866 Section 3(f)(1) in that it will clearly "adversely affect in a material way" both the manufacturing and retail sectors of the ammunition industry, productivity, competition and jobs and that the annual compliance cost for makers and retailers of ammunition alone will far exceed $100 million dollars.

All written comments submitted to OSHA must include the following information in the reference line:

RE: Docket No. OSHA–2007–0032

Comment on Department of Labor/OSHA Proposed Rule

"Significant Regulatory Action" as Defined in Executive Order 12866

Please fax the letter to the OSHA Docket Office: (202) 693-1648 (include the docket number and Department of Labor/OSHA on the cover sheet and in the reference section of your letter).

Please e-mail the letter by visiting: http://www.regulations.gov and following the submission instructions.

I sent my letter. I suggest that everyone who owns a gun of any sort do the same.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
