There is a pincer movement taking place on ammunition. The ATF is coming after it on one side and the EPA is coming after it on the other. Apparently the gun-grabbers are this time focusing on the ammunition more-so than the gun…
Here’s how they’re doing it:
The following is paraphrased from having listened to a segment of Mark Levin’s broadcast last night, and I thought that some of you might be interested to know the latest angle of attack.
Gun grabbers spend much of their time wringing their hands over so called ‘assault rifles’ which are ‘scary looking’. These same gun-grabbers often insist that they don’t want to bother us about our hunting rifles, but instead want to rid us of our AR-15s (‘assault’ rifle) – which apparently, unknown to them are typically chambered for small caliber rounds (e.g. .223) compared to many (most) so-called hunting rifles.
Here’s what’s going on now though-
The ATF is apparently reasoning towards some pre-determined specific goal – the banning of what they wish to classify as ‘armor-piercing ammunition’ (which may typically include bullet materials other than lead such as tungsten alloy, steel, etc..). At the same time the EPA is being pressured and apparently working towards banning lead bullets altogether – forcing ammunition manufacturers and suppliers to look for alternatives to lead based bullets – which are the very same bullets as those which may be re-classified as ‘armor-piercing’ – and banned.
Here’s how they’re apparently trying to do it-
First they’re going after the AR-15 ammunition (probably the most popular in the US).
Note that there are existing federal regulations regarding so called ‘armor-piercing’ ammunition.
