M855 Bullet Ban – Action Alert
Like shooting your AR-15 and it’s variants? Do you own it for defensive purposes? Want a tried and true bullet like the M855, “green tip”? Well soon you might not be able to purchase that particular bullet soon. That’s because the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the ATF, is proposing a ban on the M855. Why? Well they’ve determined that it is armor piercing. This article from the National Rifle Association explains it better than I can.
Long story short, this is a backdoor gun ban. Without some of the most commonly purchased ammo for self defense, the AR-15, the scary black rifle the Leftist Statists obsess over despite the fact it is not the firearm of choice (not even close) of criminals, becomes to some extent a paperweight. Full metal jacket rounds are cheap and great for practice and plinking but they aren’t a defensive round.
So, what should you do. Write your Representative and Senators in Washington. Go to the ATF website and comment on the proposed rule. Or just go to the NRA, fill out the form and let them send out a comment to all of them at once on your behalf. Just do it before March 16th, 2015. And If you have the cash, I’d suggest you get your hands on some green tips while you still can.
Stop the M855 Bullet Ban!
Lastly, share this post or the article I’ve linked to on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Tinder, whatever. Get the word out and make out voices heard! And If you’re not a member of the NRA become one!
