|I found out it is fear of flaking lead. If you ever watched CSI or anything involving crime investigation you know that all bullets fired leave residue in a weapon this includes Gun Powder and flakes of Lead, Brass, or Copper depending on the Weapon. Rifles more so due to the Spiral groves allowing the Bullet to spin these will be trace but it does happen they fear that small hunks of lead could be presant no matter how good you clean it something could be there and sent down range injuring or even killing someone. Personally I feel this is over reaction but since I was part of the USV and will be returning to the ANV the rules are made for safety.
As for Originals I feel better not having one simply because it is 150 years old you never know what an original went through in those 100 + years before you march out with it. Personally I do not want to be on Spike TV's 1,000 ways to die.
