NSSF Files for Dismissal of Traditional Ammunition Lawsuit
NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Having recently had its motion to intervene granted by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, NSSF followed up with a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and others against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
That lawsuit seeks to have a federal court rule that the EPA should have granted CBD and others’ petition to ban traditional ammunition.
NSSF’s argument regarding this scientifically baseless petition is that CBD failed to file a timely challenge to the EPA’s denial of its petition, and even if it were filed in a timely manner, the petition was improper because Congress intentionally exempted ammunition from EPA’s jurisdiction.
