Banning Bullets Means Banning Guns

The Obama Administration has resorted to banning bullets, beginning with one cartridge.

Eviscerating the Bill of Rights, one Amendment at a time!

So reports the Washington Examiner: “Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle.”

It’s starting.

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.

The inexpensive 5.56 M885 ammo, commonly called green tips, have been exempt for years, as have higher-caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police, because it’s mostly used by target shooters, not criminals. The agency proposes to reclassify it as armor-piercing and not exempt.

Hello, Congress? Why do you think you exist?

If you won’t defend Liberty, please just go home—we have no need for you.

William Wallace (as portrayed in the movie Braveheart):

There’s a difference between us. You think the people of this country exist to provide you with position. I think your position exists to provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure that they have it.

Is there even one man in DC with the courage of William Wallace? Evidence says “absolutely not”—some talk a good game, but in the end do nothing. I exhort someone in office to prove me wrong.

Yes, I know the ban is for .855 cartridges. If anyone thinks it will stop with one round, should they succeed here, you’re a complete and utter fool.
