Article II, Section 2 of our constitution says the president "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur." OSHA says, "So?"
lobally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, written by United Nations diplocrats, is the so-called authority behind the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's attempt to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms by defining all firearm ammunition as dangerous "explosives."
Need rifle shells for your next hunting trip? You'll first have to apply for a permit to purchase those "explosives," a second permit to transport them in a special, wooden storage container inside your pickup truck, and a third to "detonate" any in the direction of a 12-point buck.
Wright County Republican has more:
- As written, the proposed rule would force the closure of nearly all ammunition manufacturers and force the cost of small arms ammunition to skyrocket beyond what the market could bear-essentially collapsing our industry. This is not an exaggeration. The cost to comply with the proposed rule for the ammunition industry, including manufacturer, wholesale distributors and retailers, will be massive and easily exceed $100 million. For example, ammunition and smokeless propellant manufacturers would have to shut down and evacuate a factory when a thunderstorm approached and customers would not be allowed within 50 feet of any ammunition (displayed or otherwise stored) without first being searched for matches or lighters.

Seems the Demotyrannic Party despots have been going about their attempts to shut down free speech on talk radio the wrong way. They should just get their fellow rights-abusing "progressives" at OSHA to define radio waves as harmful high frequency radiation so they can "regulate" it.
Too bad there isn't a Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labeling of Bloviations. We could regulate Edwarped Mao al-Qennedy, al-Bore, and HerNibsly Rotund al-Qlinton out of the spacetime continuum.
