ATF to Ban AR-15 Ammo

Posted by Troy on 16th February 2015 in Current Events, Political

This isn’t a joke, and it’s not the rantings of a paranoid conspiracy nut.  The ATF (aka BAFTE) is looking at changing the classification of the AR-15 round (.223) as “Armor Piercing.”

“Um, so what, dude?”

The “so what” is that this will, de facto, make the round unavailable to the US consumer.  It is BANNED if they classify it as such.

This is wrong on so many levels.  The worst of which is that it is cheating.  They couldn’t ban AR-15′s outright.  They can’t even drum up any sort of viable movement to do so.  The reason is because people are rational and know that the choice of weapon is meaningless.  If someone wants to kill someone and can’t get an AR-15, they will use a shotgun or a pistol or whatever.  They also can’t even use statistics as the “assault rifle” accounts for a very small portion of all firearm deaths.  So what do they do?  They use language to rob people of their rights.

Honestly, even left-wingers should be furious and outraged.  Of course, they won’t be.  I haven’t met a left-winger yet that isn’t a “ends justify the means” person.  It’s the end of the Communist Manifesto.  ”By any means necessary.”  It’s a mantra they live by.  It’s Orwellian.  You change the language to control the people.

The majority of .223 rounds are NOT armor piercing (the military does make certain rounds that ARE armor piercing).  If they can do this with the .223 round, what is to stop them from doing it with other ammo?  Why not?

This is purely agenda driven.  They couldn’t get gun control legitimately.  They couldn’t even get it after Sandy Hook and the media and Hollywood doing everything in their power to force people to “beg for gun control.”  They couldn’t even do it by playing with language.  Have you noticed that all the polls say, “Do you support common sense gun control measures?”  Shit!  Who’s going to say “no?”  What would you be saying?  ”No!  I’m irrational!  I am against all common sense gun control measures?”  There is no option that says, “I know you are trying to trick me and that your definition of common sense has no correlation to my definition of common sense.”

We have just one month to let the ATF know what we think about this.  Spread the word!  Here is the pronouncement.  Go to apacomments@atf.gov to let them know what you think.

Long Live the Constitution!
