[OFFICIAL] Ammo ban thread
#1
Actually, I wonder what took them so long on this one. Just when prices start to stabilize and supply is availible, best to cause another panic.

In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.

It isn’t even the third week of February, and the BATFE has already taken three major executive actions on gun control. First, it was a major change to what activities constitute regulated “manufacturing” of firearms. Next, BATFE reversed a less than year old position on firing a shouldered “pistol.” Now, BATFE has released a “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)©”, which would eliminate M855’s exemption to the armor piercing ammunition prohibition and make future exemptions nearly impossible.

hmmm... Yes, I would enjoy seeing bad things start to happen to these tyrants. However, anyone who took such action would immediately labeled a Tea Party extremist and you can bet your asses the full on ban would be thrown into place by executive fiat, ATF rulings, and soon after by legislation.

I have my own stockpile, but for shits and giggles, I checked out the wheeling cabelas and they had a shit ton, including a bunch of those 420 round cans.

Now they don't. Wink

Nothing fuels the economy more than employed gun owners!! The new penetrator round is being used by the military, which will create a huge surplus of 855 penetrator ammo availible to the public. The timing is perfect.

They will try any angle they can to take away our firearms. If they can't take away the actual firearm, they will take away our means to feed it. There for a while they had done pretty well on limiting where we could have them as well but that is slowly whithering away. Hopefully, this ban will go the same route the attempted lead ban via the EPA went.
