    Labor Department Announces It Will Revise Overreaching OSHA Explosives Rule

    Monday, July 16, 2007

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced it will significantly revise a recent proposal for new “explosives safety” regulations that caused serious concern among gun owners. OSHA had originally set out to update workplace safety regulations, but the proposed rules included restrictions that very few gun shops, sporting goods stores, shippers, or ammunition dealers could comply with.

    From the link above:

    ....Working with the NRA, Congressman Denny Rehberg (R-MT) planned to offer a floor amendment to the Labor-HHS appropriations bill this Wednesday when the House considers this legislation. His amendment would have prohibited federal funds from being used to enforce this OSHA regulation.

    Such an amendment is no longer necessary since Kristine A. Iverson, the Labor Department’s Assistant Secretary for Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs, sent Rep. Rehberg a letter, dated July 16, stating that it “was never the intention of OSHA to block the sale, transportation, or storage of small arms ammunition, and OSHA is taking prompt action to revise” this proposed rule to clarify the purpose of the regulation.....

    What kind of monkeys work at the Department of Labor/OSHA then? Not one person who helped craft these "rules" could figure out that this just may place a burden on businesses that sell and distribute ammo and firearms? Bureaucracy in action...

    I'm wondering how much you know or care as you seem to be in the OSHA corner all along on this debate. Seems you were never convinced there ever was a problem. If it was to have no impact if it went into effect, how can it have an impact if it fails? Just wondering where you stand, with the gunowners or somewhere else?
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?
