M855 to be banned - Try not to rage

Looks like the BATFE, along with Obama, is attempting to re-classify M855 green tip 5.56mm ammo as "armor piercing" and get it banned for commercial sale.

What say you?

Try not to rage, I dare you.

Admittedly, I am vague on this... doesn't the ban apply to ammo used in handguns.... and what I read says the manufacture but not the possession of....

Some clarity, please.

The letter that should be sent is to the NRA, on behalf of millions of members saying Wayne LaPierre is going to be eating with the commoners at McDonalds if this passes, because we are going to look for a new group with men who won't pull their skirt over their head every time the ATF unzips its pants.

Blame the NRA for possible bullet ban?

NRA members pay their dues, write the letters, make the calls,etc, it is the other 95 million, worthless, gunowning albatrosses, that bring about a loss of our rights. It is way past time that these worthless du-nuttins helped to protect our rights.

Membership in Pro gun organizations and support should be mandatory for any gunowner. Do you think they'd do this crap if there were 50 million contributing members?

You need to focus on the useless gunowners who do nothing to protect the Second Amendment. In spite of ever increasing threats to our gun rights, membership in ALL the gun organizations have remained about the same. Thank your non participating, gunowning friends for that,,,,,

M855 is NOT a AP round. Never has been.

The M995 round is AP.

I predict the M855 will NOT be banned.

5 pages on GB with M855 for sale, and only a few suckers/buyers buying at inflated/scalp prices.

doesn't matter to some.... any .223 round will be subject to this ban eventually, the camel's nose is under the tent. chicken littles will panic buy for a while.... tens of millions of gun owners will sit idle hoping a few NRA members will carry them.

I'm surprised that they've not banned AR and AK pistols with magazines that are not in th grip of the gun because they have "no sporting purpose".
I don't think there should be a ban on AP handgun ammo. I mean how many COPS have actually been killed or maimed by AP ammo fired from a handgun? It's a reaction without a cause IMHO.
Now some guys are shooting M855/SS109 in their AR "Handguns" and because it has a small piece of mild steel in the nose of the bullet the BATFE is going to deem it AP and then ban it simply because it is being used in a limited fashion in an AR "Handgun". Really, that just doesn't make sense on so many levels.
I honestly think that any cartridge who's primary roll is in feeding a rifle/carbine should be exempt regardless of what it's fired in.
This is another attempt to turn the heat up a little bit more under the frog until it's boiled to death.
We need to get the 7n6 ban repealed and not allow the M855/SS109 ban to take place.

i voiced my disapproval to BATFE and my elected officials. whether it does any good or not is to determined by the # of people that do the same. so many times like voting it's easier to sit on your ass at home than to take action. i'm not worried about any gov official showing up because i might be on an list, ****s gotta start somewhere!!
get out there and let them know what you think!

Un-****ing believable..M855 is common ammo....liberals are afraid of a round simply because of the color it's painted.
