Barack Obama to ban AR-15 bullets through Executive action

February 26, 2015

It has been rumored for a few weeks now that Barack Obama was preparing to ban one of the most common rounds of ammunition in the country through Executive Action and according to this story it is now on the fast track.

Here is more:

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 target shooters and sportsmen who also like to walk and hike with the hiking watches from the Top9Rated complete list.

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.

   Of course, as we have seen in the recent past, the Congress cannot, and will not, stop the President. However, as usual, they are talking a good game:

Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.

The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that 30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”

This round is amongst the most commonly used in the most popular rifle design in America, the AR-15. Millions upon millions of M855 rounds have been sold and used in the U.S., yet ATF has not even alleged — much less offered evidence — that even one such round has ever been fired from a handgun at a police officer,” said Goodlatte’s letter.

And some also police find this ludicrous:

Even some police don’t buy the administration’s claim. “Criminals aren’t going to go out and buy a $1,000 AR pistol,” Brent Ball, owner of 417 Guns in Springfield, Mo., and a 17-year veteran police officer told the Springfield News-Leader. “As a police officer I’m not worried about AR pistols because you can see them. It’s the small gun in a guy’s hand you can’t see that kills you.”

  If they cannot ban the weapons they will settle for the second best thing and that is rendering the weapons useless by making it impossible to purchase the ammunition to use them.

  When Barack Obama failed to get the Congress to act on global warming he famously quipped that “there is more than one way to skin a cat” and he promptly convinced the EPA to move on cap and trade. The same can be said for immigration reform: he could not get the Congress to act so he moved on his own. And now he is doing the same here.

  Rest assured that if Barack Obama is successful here it will only be the beginning, there will be more to follow in the weeks and months ahead as Barack Obama tests his limits. Where will it end?

    Got your AK variant yet? And I hope you have already put back several thousand rounds of 5.56

    Instead of just ‘ending it all’ for Americans with a nuke or two, those in control get their kicks prolonging it (micro managing as a mimic god does). The sick perversion behind this type of thinking is satanic. The very ones who should’ve been aborted aren’t. But, it follows with the truth that we’re not in Paradise … Their Utopia is another man’s hell.

    time for the ammo manufacturers to simply tell Barry that they will not stop manufacturing or providing the ammo. “Providing” to mean any means of transfer.. sale, barter, lease, rent, commissions, etc etc ….who the heck cares HOW it’s transferred, sing a song & get ammo or sell someone a can of pop & throw in the ammo they really were after, for free; there are plenty of ways to get around this. It’s time for a black market economy.

      That will most likely be the end result of this and of course that will be used as another crisis to enact more draconian laws.

      I like it! Since Congress and the lot have their own self-interest agenda, why not “We The People!” Great idea! Time to pull the plug.

        This group doesn’t want liberty or freedoms for anyone but their own perverted group, so there’s no ‘reasoning’ with them. It’s as though they’re ‘forcing their hand’ giving them an excuse to use DHS to bear down. What if tax payer had their own ‘security’ to round- up the scum and place them in Gitmo. Just send in the ‘Expendables’.
