    OSHA is worried about lead exposure at Illinois Gun Works.

    The press release makes things sound almost reasonable.

    2012 - 06/11/2012 - US Department of Labor's OSHA cites Illinois Gun Works for exposing workers to lead, other hazards at Elmwood Park, Ill., plant

    The citation (pdf) is much more interesting reading.

    I love the recommendations that they stop using large caliber guns, like 9 mm and .45 caliber, to train with, and that they switch to smaller caliber guns. I don't know what the law says in Illinois, but don't most states require firearm safety to be done with the actual gun you want to get a carry permit for? The recommendation to prohibit any shotguns and/or rifles firing in the firing range. (page 6)

    I don't usually buy into conspiracy theories, but I might make an exception if OSHA thinks that gun owners shouldn't be allowed to use anything bigger than a 22LR when they train.

    Hell, the damn pocketbooks women buy have lead 200 times the acceptable level, why aren't they going after that problem?

    Because the people can't challenge the authority of the government with imported purses.
