Fire Mission

OSHA wants to regulate ammo manufacturing to the point where, well, it’d just be hard to make ammo. OSHA has extended the comment period. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to tell them how stupid that is:

According to OSHA, you may submit comments, identified by Docket No. OSHA-2007- 0032, by any of the following methods:

* Electronically: You may submit comments and attachments electronically at, which is the Federal eRulemaking Portal. Follow the instructions on-line for making electronic submissions.
* Fax: If your comments, including attachments, do not exceed 10 pages, you may fax them to the OSHA Docket Office at (202) 693-1648.
* Mail, hand delivery, express mail, messenger or courier service: You must submit three copies of your comments and attachments to:
OSHA Docket Office, Docket No. OSHA-2007-0032
U.S. Department of Labor, Room N-2625
200 Constitution Avenue, NW.
Washington, DC 20210
telephone (202) 693-2350 (OSHA”s TTY number is (877) 889-5627).

Instructions: All submissions must include the Agency name and the docket number for this rulemaking (Docket No. OSHA-2007-0032). All comments, including any personal information you provide, are placed in the public docket without change and may be made available online at Therefore, OSHA cautions you about submitting personal information such as social security numbers and birthdates.

NRA even has a sample letter there.

    We certainly need more government regulation, particularly since we seem to read about ammo factory fires and explosions pretty much all the time.

    We really need bureaucrats, who seldom venture out of their cubicles, to tell the good people at Winchester, Georgia Arms, etc. how to make ammo.

    […] goodie: OSHA has extended the comment period so peons can send word on long overdue measures to regulate ammunition manufacturing. Jeez, you […]

    Given that the government’s main ammo plant is in Missouri, you might also drop a note to MO’s two Senators. I believe the plant is located in the 4th District. represented by Ike Skelton (D). Skelton is also the Chair of the House Armed Services Committee, so the ‘detrimental effect on defense preparedness’ argument might work well there.

    Note: Skelton’s district also includes Ft Leonard Wood and Whiteman AFB. I met him once when he came to Ft Jackson, and he seemed more receptive on Defense issues than, say, Pelosi.

    long overdue measures

    To Two–Four:

    So if OSHA was proposing to tell you that you had to have an OSHA certified electrician on staff to set up your sound equipment and plug in your guitar (or you can’t play in a commercial establishment) you wouldn’t the first one howling…B.S.
