THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS
BACKED OFF ITS PROPOSAL TO BAN A
COMMON RIFLE AMMUNITION. BUT ITS
WORDS-"AT THIS TIME"-LEAVE LITTLE
DOUBT THAT THE PLAN IS STILL ALIVE
AND WELL.
by James O.E. Norell, Contributing Editor

hen you think of the Obama administration's stalled threat to
ban popular rifle ammunition under the rubric of prohibited
"armor-piercing" handgun ammunition, think of the movie "The Terminator," and
Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous line-"i'll be baaaack."
Because they will be back.

After the massive February and early
March outcry from gun owners, led by
National Rifle Association members
and bipartisan majority opposition in
both houses of Congress, the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and

almost certainly result in even harsher
action in the future.
In fact, a renewed attack on common
ar-15 ammunition came just two days
after the announced stand-down. On
March 12, batfe Director B. Todd Jones
told a Senate Appropriations Committee
that he considers all 5.56 ammo to be a
threat to law enforcement officers. That
same day, a draft of a letter to batfe from

Explosives (batfe) delayed its ban on
m855 5.56 mm ball rifle ammo.
News media headlines in coverage of
the stand-down used words like "drops,"
"scraps," "abandons" and "pulls," giving
the impression that the ban is dead. But
nothing could be further from the truth.
In suddenly halting this latest
assault on gun owners, batfe used
an ominous phrase, "at this time."
Additionally, the agency said the action
"deserves further study."
Bank on this-"further study" will

a group of congressional Democrats
was made public that called on batfe to
quickly revive plans to ban m855 ammo.
The fraudulent nature of batfe's
outside-federal-law process, which
ignored the Administrative Procedures
Act-mandatory for such regulation
changes-was proven in the March 10
stand-down announcement referring
to the 80,000-plus letters and emails of
opposition as "informal comments." Yet
there was nothing "informal" about the
impending bullet ban.

And there is nothing uncertain
about President Barack Obama's hatred
of Americans for owning and using
guns. In the upside-down world of the
Obama administration, obsession with
disarming peaceable citizens by any
means apparently takes precedence over
all other issues.
As nra Executive Vice President
Wayne LaPierre succinctly put it, "The
president gives more attention to banning
peaceable Americans from access to
bullets than he does keeping the insane
mullahs in Iran from possessing the
atomic bomb."
Fact is, as long as Obama and his
radical minions control the federal
government, they will carry out a
guerilla campaign to liquidate the
Second Amendment by any stealth
means within their power. The
president's petulant attempt to force
"gun control" votes in the Congress did
not succeed, so he now wields his royal
scepter of stolen executive power.
There is no better example of the
unlawful nature of Obama's regime than
the conduct of his batfe, now legendary
for the Fast and Furious debacle. For the
most recent proof, look no further than
the history of the now-stalled ammo ban.
