ATF shelves bullet ban proposal

The Obama administration is pulling back a controversial proposal to ban a form of armor-piercing ammunition commonly used in AR-15 hunting rifles.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) said it will not seek to issue a final framework for the rule “at this time” after receiving more than 80,000 comments on the proposal, the “vast majority” of which were negative.

"You spoke, we listened," the ATF tweeted.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun-rights groups assailed the proposal, and were joined by Republicans in demanding that it be withdrawn.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said he is "pleased that the Obama administration has abandoned its attack on the Second Amendment."

"It is entirely inappropriate for President Obama to stretch his regulatory authority to implement partisan policies that Congress has refused to enact. Such an abuse of power would impact many law-abiding gun owners and restrict the American people’s ability to legally and responsibly exercise their Second Amendment rights," Goodlatte said in a statement.

Senate Republicans on Tuesday had ramped up the pressure on the ATF to scrap the plan, arguing in a letter that “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,” wrote 53 Senate Republicans.

Last week, hundreds of House Republicans sent a similar letter to the agency demanding it “abandon” the rule.

“Under no circumstances should ATF adopt a standard that will ban ammunition that is overwhelmingly used by law-abiding Americans for legitimate purposes,” the House lawmakers wrote.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Now for the next 3 years if one wanted to purchase some they will pay more in price due to the demand . It will be some of the most sought after rounds in the United States for a long time ..A check of all the bulk ammo sites reveals that prices have already gone up an average of 50 percent,... tens of millions of rounds will be sold in the next few years .

No doubt

Obama has been instrumental in rising gun and ammo sales since he has taken office.

Damn. So you don't like capitalism now either?

Have you ever considered it might be easier just to make a list of the things you do agree with? It would save time.
