Conflicting standards, perhaps.
FMJ are required for armies under the Hague Convention of 1899. That convention moved away from expanding type bullets because they were deemed too cruel.
Sure the current argument is that FMJs have more tendency than HPs to to over-penetrate, and thus, potentially pose a threat to any bystander behind the BG. But it's beyond the shooter's control if the BG turns out to be skinny rather that fat. In any case, the average American in 2011 is much more fatter than the average European in 1899.
Of course, there's also the "if FMJs are legal, they're appropriate" argument.
For your consideration.
There are at least two sides to every story. I just heard yours and, indeed, you appear to be the victim. But I can't stop wondering what the other side has to say.
Oh, g-d, if only LEOs can be indemnified from willfully ignoring the stupid!
