Re: [War Of 1812] Accessing the OSHA web site. maze.
Thanks for your comments. I think you are right in getting with
folks on your side of the border to make them aware of the situation.
Below is something I copied that indicates that the OSHA comment
system went down. It also illustrates how event a govt. contractor
here wasn't aware of what was coming down. The NRA has clut on this
side of the border and combined with some folks from Canada, maybe we
can do something. The 60 day extension for comment would allow you
folks to get with whoever you need to. Meanwhile, we'll make things
lively here. My guess is that the folks in the defense industry are
already calling their lobbyists on K St.. This is sort of like the
executive Dept. regs tthat went through about passports. You are
aware how that's going down on both sides of the border. In this case
we may be able to head something off instead of shut the barn door
after the horses have escaped.

Just got off the phone with NRA-ILA, yes they were informed the email
comment system was broken!
But on better news, ILA did speak to OSHA today, and they are
considering extending the comment period another 60 days.
This is NOT a sure thing, as they are just CONSIDERING doing so.
Keep the pressure up, conract all your Congress Critters, NOW!
In other news, even powder makers were caught flat footed on this.
ATK, the people to make the Alliant Powder line, just found out about
the proposed new regulations yesterday!
ATK is a major smokeless powder producer for DOD, and I wonder what
the DOD thinks about all this!
This keeps getting more interesting all the time!
