ATF to ban most AR-15 Ammo


More than one way to skin a cat, or destroy our Second Amendment rights. Now more than ever, we need our weapons. Here we go:

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)(c)”,

BATFE is accepting comments until March 16, 2015 on this indefensible attempt to disrupt ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.

    Just one step closer to insure American citizens run out of bullets should the “folks” in dirty night shirts and Nike’s storm our borders. While writing this and listening to O’Reilly and his crew of taking heads refusing to say Obama is on ISIS side but instead criticizing his powder puff response to the wholesale inhuman carnage, a result of his Arab Spring I realize the silence from the right in congress is absurdly deafening.

      I can’t take O’Reilly anymore. Megyn Kelly is my gal these days. The GOP? What GOP. They don’t exist anymore as far as I can tell.

    They cannot get the weapons so they are doing the next best thing, ban the ammo and make the weapons useless. Very troubling! Are the Republicans going to sit by quietly and let this go?

      This didn’t even raise a notice in the media. Just a couple of right wing bloggers. You know, bitter clingers.

    They will never stop trying to disarm us, Bunker. The anti-American Obama administration can do a lot of damage in the two years they have left.

        They have a well thought-out and methodical plan, Bunk, and us having guns isn’t part of it. If Hilary happens, and I sooooo doubt it, to win in 2016 she will continue with his plans and we may see no to very to limited access to guns. This simply isn’t an option.
