A majority in both the Senate and House — 52 senators, 238 House members — have joined to oppose the Obama administration’s move to ban a popular type of ammo used in the top-selling AR-15 rifle and pistol because it pierces police body armor.
In their letter, the senators said that the 5.56 M855 “green tip” cartridge was exempted in a 1986 law, along with other rifle ammo from bans on armor-piercing rounds. The reason: popular rifle ammo is typically not used in shootouts with police.
They also raised new concerns that the administration appears poised for a much wider ammo ban.
Ya think? Obama’s been on a tear when it comes to breaking the law and violating the Constitution, and one of his pet projects is grabbing guns from private citizens.
“Second Amendment rights require not only access to firearms but to bullets. If law-abiding gun owners cannot obtain rifle ammunition, or face substantial difficulty in finding ammunition available and at reasonable prices because government entities are banning such ammunition, then the Second Amendment is at risk,” said Grassley’s letter.
The ATF has proposed banning the ammo because it has concerns that the popularity of AR-15 pistols might mean a greater threat to police. Foes of the move, including a top police group, however, say there is no evidence the $1,000 pistols have been used against police. Others note that the metals used in the ammo are not included in the old law’s description of armor-piercing bullets.
Obama hasn’t been as successful as he’d hoped in destroying the rights of law-abiding gun owners, so he figured he could grab the ammo instead.
His war on the Second Amendment goes back to the 1990’s. He would like nothing less than to disarm every law-abiding gun owner in America. Criminals couldn’t give a shit less and no amount of zealous ‘gun control’ will matter.
Obama and Holder’s Fast and Furious gunrunning operation which is responsible for hundreds of murders on both sides of the southern border, including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, could have used the ‘gun control’ treatment.
The expansion of government intrusion into the privacy of law-abiding citizens, and Obama’s lawlessness and abuse of executive power should have the Demtards doing a war dance. Anything the Obamessiah does is quickly excused and forgiven. According to the Limbaugh Theorem, Obama is able to keep himself separated from the very acts of tyranny he creates by simply being a perpetual campaigner.
If you don’t believe they will use the technology at their disposal to surveil American citizens who speak out against unconstitutional gun grabs and other violations of the Bill of Rights, you haven’t paid attention.
Protect your liberties from these tyrants or you will lose them.
