How long do you think it will be before the EPA goes after those sources as well?

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

A fluorescent light bulb with pinch of mercury is considered eco friendly these days, and a bit of lead is evil unless it is comes by way of Chinese toys.

Go figure.
When a man dies, if nothing is written, he is soon forgotten.

I'm pretty sure we have right up until the moment that sealed lead acid batteries become obsolete.

Probably not even then. Lead is used everywhere, and recycled everywhere.

Liberal gun control activists are a victim of their own success here; creating a lead shortage to enforce a bullet ban is no longer in the cards.
