The video BATF Ammo Ban Violates Federal Law As Well As The Constitution and Infowars article provides the legal definition: AR-15 AMMO NOT “ARMOR PIERCING” ACCORDING TO LAW, BUT ATF BANNING IT ANYWAY, both explains the dubious methods being used to circumvent the 2nd Amendment.
To be considered “armor piercing” under 18
U.S.C. 921 (a)(17)(B) , a bullet must have an entirely metal core or have a jacket weighting more than 25% of its weight,
which wouldn’t include M855 rounds because their bullets are partly lead .
The definition in full:
(A) The term “ammunition” means ammunition or cartridge cases, primers,
bullets, or propellent powder designed for use in any firearm.
(B) The term “armor piercing ammunition” means- (i) a projectile
or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other
substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium;
or (ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has
a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.
(C) The term “armor piercing ammunition” does not include shotgun
shot required by Federal or State environmental or game regulations for hunting purposes, a frangible projectile designed
for target shooting, a projectile which the Attorney General finds is primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes,
or any other projectile or projectile core which the Attorney General finds is intended to be used for industrial purposes,
including a charge used in an oil and gas well perforating device.
Now all this legal mumbo jumbo may
seem archaic to anyone other than gun enthusiasts, but in fact allowing the government to banish the business end of shells,
because the government fears such bullets might be pointed at them, is an admission of despotic panic.
Governments have little need to feel apprehension from citizens, when their conduct is measured by legal
and ethical standards. Just ask, what in the world is this contrived necessity to undertake punitive and restrictive measures
to strip the public of their legitimate right for self-defense, really all about?
is any doubt how the people are responding, just examine the trend in gun and especially further ammo sales.
Gun sales hit new record, ammo boom to
“If ammunition does become the focus for gun owners, that could become another hot-button
Last year, the Homeland Security Department had to explain to
Congress its contracts to buy up to 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.
gun owners believed the department was trying to crowd out private consumers in the ammunition market, but federal officials
said their purchases amounted to a tiny fraction of the ammunition produced every year.”
Obviously, buying up the market is too slow a way to crowd out the public. With no constrains in the last two years
of the Obama administration, what is one more show of contempt for the rule of law? Yet, proponents of an ammunition free
zone cheer last year’s UN Arms Trade Treaty ATT as another component in the efforts
to “piecemeal enactment of costly and increasingly restrictive controls on ammunition, private sales and transfers,
firearms parts, registration, etc.”
Yes, Obama’s bureaucrats are
walking lock step in line with the global objective of having non elites stripped of their armor. If .223 ammo is slated for
a meltdown, what will be next?
The Global Gulag essay, Guns, Guts and Goons foretells the dilemma.
“Gun ownership in America is the primary reason why the internationalists
fear the wrath of an armed citizenry. The destruction of the Bill of Rights is a prime objective of the beltway statists.
Conversely, the elimination of the remnants of an American federalist constitutional republic is the key eliminate required
for imposition of the global Illuminati matrix. The primal reason to foster a society that bears weapons is to maintain the
means to fight tyranny on your native soil. The United Nations is a subversive and diabolical appendage of world despotism.
The choice has never been clearer. Lock and load or kneel and grovel. Guns are mere instruments of force or defense, while
government oppression is the reason why the public must possess the means of accountability.”
In the brave new world that is being engineered, going back to archery using rubber tips might be the
only option, assuming that stringing for the bow would be allowed.
The list of
government warfare against citizen’s right to bear arms just grows. Obama’s feds hid key data to get
Calif. lead ammo ban passed in backdoor gun control move comes as no surprise. “Other states have also wrestled
with the lead ammunition issue, but California is the first and only state to ban it altogether.”
From that other bastion of individual rights, the New York Times cannot conceal their
joy in the item, Move to Ban a Bullet Adds to
Its Appeal. However, in the spirit of balance
the NYT quotes:
“Representative Robert W. Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, urged
the agency to reconsider the rule.
upon millions of M855 rounds have been sold and used in the U.S., yet A.T.F. has not even alleged, much less offered evidence,
that even one such round has ever been fired from a handgun at a police officer,” Mr. Goodlatte writes in a letter to
the agency’s director, B. Todd Jones, to be sent this week.”
Surely there must be some compelling argument missing that proposes
to criminalize the magic tip projectile.
This is a laughable proposal if the underlying intentions for disarming the citizenry was
not the ultimate motive were not so draconian.
Do you have the guts to stand up to the goons? You don’t need to have guns
to resist if they have their way. What good is a gun without bullets? What is needed is a concerted effort to support organizations
and representatives that will fight against this tyranny now, before we all bleed because Americans allowed their disarmament.
charade of false flag gun crimes used to enact more restrictive laws and regulations needs to be exposed as absolute folly
and soul-destroying despotism.
