So now the BATFE director wants ALL 5.56mm banned:

Quote:
In a Senate Appropriations Committee hearing, ATF Director B. Todd Jones said all types of the 5.56 military-style ammo used by shooters pose a threat to police as more people buy the AR-15-style pistols.
"Any 5.56 round" is "a challenge for officer safety," he said. Jones asked lawmakers to help in a review of a 1986 bill written to protect police from so-called "cop killer" rounds that largely exempted rifle ammo like the 5.56 because it has been used by target shooters, not criminals.

I don't doubt B. Toad Jones wants to ban everything, less ownership by the Govt monopoly of force. (Although that is not what he specifically articulated out loud in the hearing; I saw it.) They are, and have been, seeing what they can get away with. It's up to the citizens of this country to make them blink.

That didn't take long. The dims are working legislation on this issue, naming it the "Armor Piercing Bullets Act". As to the highlighted sentence, doesn't ALL ammunition possess a potential threat? As do knives, baseball bats, tree branches, kitchenware, angry ex-wives, etc.? I'm sure this bill will be DOA if it progresses any further, but the mere fact that our tax dollars are paying these idiots is infuriating.

Quote:
“As the ATF rightly pointed out, these rounds can easily be loaded into concealed pistols and other short guns, making them particularly dangerous to police officers,” Engel noted. “The well-being of the men and women who protect us should not, and need not, be a partisan issue. I encourage all of my colleagues in Congress to support this obvious measure that will, if enacted, save lives.”

Engel blamed the gun industry for promoting the use of armor-piercing bullets.

“There is absolutely no compelling argument to be made for anyone else to have access to them,” he said. “But the out of touch gun industry lobby is fighting tooth and nail to keep cop-killing ammunition on the streets.”

Where do these folks come from? Were they not born in America? Were they not elected by Americans? Our current two party system needs to go away. We indeed need "change".

The focus of the discussion needs to be about the reality of the danger to the police. The exact number of police officers wounded or killed by 5.56, and other rifle calibers, fired though pistols needs to be printed on a poster and displayed on the congressional floor.

That's what they said about those "vicious, tissue-ripping, evil, hollow-points." (Repeated in scripts by every morose coroner character on every TV show so it must be true.)

2 sides of the same forked-tongue.

I'll take some of each, thanks.

The political left in general, democrats specifically, are born and bred to lie to the American public. First and Second amendment issues are met with the best lies that they can muster since those are the most important - your right to talk, and your right to PROTECT your right to talk.
...and so they lie as hard as they need to lie in order to chip away at what few freedoms are left.

Think back to the lies told about the old 'Black Talons'...
...you'd have thought a single trigger pull from a weapon loaded with Black Talons would dispatch an angry little troll armed with a diamond tipped drill to pierce all known fabrics and a rusty old bone saw to hack up your flesh.

Then of course the very term "kop killer bullet" is meant not to isolate 'armor piercing' rounds, it is meant to arbitrarily label ALL bullets as deadly. Once they set precedent, they can easily outlaw birdshot as "kop killers" since they have a law on the books as precedent.
If you are wearing body armor, and you are shot through the eye and killed by a .22 short, then THAT bullet will have defeated your armor and earned its title as a "kop killer".

That could never happen in America though...
...because there are always those that will say "nuh-uh, that could never happen here, 'Muricans are too smart" but you will notice that Americans are saying "that could never happen here" are forgetting that the simple cosmetics of a weapon are enough to make it illegal in numerous states throughout America.

It could never happen here
