ATF Moves To Ban AR-15 Ammo
— JohnE.

Believe it or not, this is only one of three jaw-dropping and lawless moves by the Obama Administration this week. Oh, we'll get to the others in a bit.

While the media dry-humping itself over Walker gotchas and inane llama and dress color stories, the ATF is doing this:

As NRA has been reporting since the night the news broke, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is moving to infringe upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners with a drastic reinterpretation of a nearly 30-year-old law regulating so-called “armor piercing” ammunition. So draconian is BATFE’s new “Framework” that it would prohibit the manufacturing, importation, and sale of M855 ball ammunition, one of the most popular cartridges for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15. Not coincidentally, the AR-15 is among the firearms the Obama Administration has unsuccessfully sought to outlaw. If they can’t ban the pie, so the thinking apparently goes, they might at least get the apples.
They are honest-to-God moving to eliminate all AR-15 ammunition from the market. This was always a fringe lefty pipe-dream of the "just tax ammo at $15 per round" variety, but now it's a reality. Call your Congressman, for real this time.

Also check out Kevin Williamson's rundown on this.

Related: Did I bulk-order a bunch of 5.56 rounds yesterday? I'd prefer not to say. Great White Scotsman comment:

This is not a true statement. The ATF is not trying to eliminate all AR-15 ammo. They are proposing to eliminate only the old SS109 62 grain steel tip penetrator rounds, which is now the M885, not all FMJ stuff.
Okay, fair. Should have been more clear. *The Administration* is moving to eliminate AR15 ammo. ATF from the non-lead side, followed by what is probably an inevitable EPA lead-ban to follow.

1 I've been saying this for years, can't get the guns, get the ammo. Also, screw them all. We need smart NRA lawyers to get around this.

6 What's worse is that they can't logically ban the 5.56 without doing it to the .308 also.

7 Great. Just when supply and prices were stabilizing. The shelves are already bare again here, and the panic buying isn't just confined to .223/5.56.

Having said that, I don't agree with them eliminating any ammo, but everyone needs to stick to the truth about this and not over react, because that is exactly what the Left wants us to do.

15 While this needs to be stopped its also important to note that green tip is onlya portion of the ar15 ammo. It's the steel core that they are going after. There will still be other types of ammo available for the ar15.

That's the beauty of it.

Ban lead rounds from the EPA side of the house, and the market goes to copper/tungsten.

Ban copper/tungsten rounds from the ATF side of the house as 'armor piercing.'

Might make an exception that no vote needed for removal or lessening of regulation, and only needed for addition, creation or increase.

37 Using the same logic, BATFE could and will announce a ban on 7.62x39 because it has a mild steel core. This is NOT insignificant. You can in theory make a pistol out of damn near any rifle caliber (Thompson Contenders?) Once there is a pistol, that round, under their convoluted logic, is a pistol round.

What's needed is people in DC who can read and understand the plain wording of our own Constitution, specifically, the Second Amendment. What these assholes are doing is disarming us.

The idea of limits to their power never enters their little minds. The best way to nullify the Constitution is to just ignore it. Never even mention it, don't acknowledge its existence and certainly don't ever say that there's supposed to be a limit to government's powers. This shit is getting out of hand rapidly. I've got a really bad feeling about this.

74 My understanding of the logic behind this DECREE is that it is all about officer safety. We can't be allowed to have cartridges that can pierce their armor in pistol calibers. That is pretty much ANY rifle round. Including .223 lead core. So they are looking for any rifle caliber pistol, and saying "there you go, armor piercing, banned". As always, picture the G-man, or bureaucrat, or whomever, with his finger poking you chest. "What are you going to do about it?"

75 *whimper* delegation *whimper* I was pondering this earlier today and here's the problem, other than that whole delegation thingy. *stompys all of the Administrative Procedure Act* The US system of checks and balances requires that each branch respect the authority of the other. It is not designed and cannot handle easily when one branch runs riot. In this case, it's the Executive more or less acting as if Congress has been disbanded. No, I'm not overstating that. The Executive is acting with full unitary authority. The Court system is not designed to move with alacrity on anything at all. Congress has ceded so much authority since, to pick a date at random, 1946, that it cannot now move rapidly to counteract the Executive's actions. Thus, when you have an Executive branch who has decided that it will burn all restraint on authority to the ground, then the checks and balances buckle. That's not even taking into account that Congress has stated that it will not exercise the full panoply of responses to such actions. Now, add in that Congress contains within it those who are not only unwilling to stop the Executive but who are whole heartedly in support of the Executive's actions and we are facing an all out, full blown Constitutional crisis. The center will not hold.

100 So: The USA, or the world, would be safer if less millions of .223 hard/ball/FMJ NATO legal bullets can be sold ever again. Thereafter ALL .223 ammo will be required to be hollow point and/or frangiable ? That is far worse. Why this sudden new law? I'm confused: Do they wish that only super deadly Deer-hunting/soft-nose or hollow point bullets are to be the only legal replacement ammo type for the FMJ hard ammo? Hollow/Lead/Soft nosed bullets are VERY illegal for legal warfare amongst treaty nations! Will the only .223 "AR-15" ammo available for sale in the future be TOTALLY NATO ILLEGAL HP/Softpoint/Frangiable? Hmmm, I wonder why....

@75 AtC, I've been off and on reading Hamburger's book on administrative law. "Is Administrative Law Unlawful?" (and his answer is basically, yes, it is and it's a throwback to the old days of the prerogatives of kings). What I've read so far is pretty good, though it's heavy reading.

105 They must have a list a mile long of their tyrannical wish-list. The frightening thing is how quick everything is happening now. Why so many things in one week? They know it's now or never. TFG's installation is the culmination of the Prog/Com's wet dream to conquer us from within. Even from what little we know about him, this has been in motion for years. They're pushing us toward a real, live revolution again. As we've seen, just voting doesn't stop it, there are far too many Progs on both sides of the aisle. That's why there's no opposition to any of this shit. Boehner, McConnell and all the others seem to be in on it too. We are being betrayed.

192 M855 (which they are banning) does not meet the legal definition of armor piercing handgun ammunition. They are banning it anyway. XM193 ball (55 gr lead rounds), have as more or more 'armor piercing' power as M855. If they get away with this, they can basically ban all AR-15 ammunition using the same 'logic' they used to ban M855.

194

The EPA was told by the SCROTUS that they cannot ban lead bullets. So I am guessing (judging by the fact they actually mentioned it in their M855 ban proposal) that the BATFE will say that lead bullets have no 'sporting purpose' because it harms the environment.

 

That 'sporting purpose' flies in the face of the 2nd. It needs to be repealed, along with NFA '34, GCA '68, and GCA '93.

196 AtC, I've been off and on reading Hamburger's book on administrative law. "Is Administrative Law Unlawful?"(and his answer is basically, yes, it is and it's a throwback to the old days of the prerogatives ofkings). What I've read so far is pretty good, though it's heavy reading. Wanted to get your thought on it. Posted by: Lurkingestlurker at February 27, 2015 11:40 AM (k8xvx) I haven't read it yet so I can't really comment on the specifics of the work. The basic analytic framework he uses is sound and, again, we're discussing another matter where those who were warning about the logical conclusions of the APA way back when were absolutely correct. He is completely right that this is a reversion to the mean of an Emperor. Here's the thing. Congress could eliminate ALL regulatory authority tomorrow. All of it. Every last little single tiny bit of it. The various regulatory agencies are extra Constitutional (I would argue non-Constitutional) after all. Those agencies exist by Congressional sufferance only. Congress made them. Congress can eliminate them. Good luck getting any traction for that idea. There are some practical steps that can be taken by Congress short of that, such as passing legislation eliminating judicial deference to agency decisions. But that won't happen either. By the by, I cannot tell you how delighted I am at the notion of being a Gojira.

Posted by: Feh at February 27, 2015 11:58 AM (4EQf5) Executive Orders are only meant in the day to day functioning of the Executive Branch.

So Federal regulations carry the force of law even if no one in Congress wrote it or passed it, and no voter ever voted for it. Tyranny with a capital T.

220 This is only the first step. This proposed banning of a very specific type of a particular caliber of bullet is only the beginning. The argument will be that this very technical specific type of bullet will not apply to other types of bullets or calibers. Unstated in this argument is the Executive branch, Obama's White House, under orders from the President arbitrary claims the authority to ban this very specific type of bullet by pointing to a law that has been on the books for years. A law that has been understood for years, and suddenly the President claims to redefine the meaning and intent of the law. If this is uncontested, the President can then move forward to do the same thing with other law, other very specific technical things. Eventually, there is nothing the President can not ban by Executive writ. Today it is 5.56/.223. Tomorrow 7.62/.308. Next week thursday .338, .300. to infinity and beyond.

223 EO's aren't laws. What are the Constitutional checks against Executive Orders? There's this: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." Is that it? The Constitution gives the Pres limitless scope for EO's, and Congress only has the power to fund, or not fund, their execution? Doesn't the Judiciary have a purchase on EO's?

Some excuse will be trotted out about illegal order, is only good for 30 days, maybe only applies in Texas or some such BS. And the MSM will dutifully pass it along, the LIV's will swallow it whole (if they are even aware of the issue) and outraged conservative will be mocked as extreme, mean and crazy, Count on it.

AtC, thanks! Of course, Congress doesn't want to undo the APA because that would put a lot more work on them, and we can't have that, the poor dears. *eyeroll*.

Funny thing is that I'm pretty sure that anything that's done by these agencies can be done by our legislature via a committee. We don't really need these unelected officials at all, and any perceived need has been created by the agencies themselves.

I mean, the FDA might be one that I can see maybe being useful, but I'm sure there's a way to replicate the agency via our legislature in a constitutional framework.  Maybe we use government test labs or independent contract private labs to test and verify food and drugs, and the final decision goes through committee based on those findings? Could work. Can't see how it'd been much slower than the current process.

285 Is that it? The Constitution gives the Pres limitless scope for EO's, and Congress only has the power to fund, or not fund, their execution? Doesn't the Judiciary have a purchase on EO's? Posted by: Feh at February 27, 2015 12:05 PM (4EQf5) Okay. INCREDIBLY quick and dirty primer on admin law and, yes, this is leaving out all kinds of bits and bobs but whatever. My shrieking about the Delegation Doctrine, which is more properly considered the Non-Delegation Doctrine is that Congress cannot merely shove legislative authority off on some unelected officials. I know, I know, don't hurt yourself laughing at that. But that's why the Administrative Procedure Act is so important. Back in 1946, Congress decided that Governmentin' Is Hard and more or less passed a law that said it could too shove legislative authority off on unelected officials so long as those actions stayed within the lines of the APA. Needless to say, there is more than a bit of hither and yon as to the bounds of regulatory authority and staying within the lines. But that also means that, no, the President cannot merely issue any old EO that he wants. In theory, if the various and sundry requirements of the APA are not met, then the agency's action is improper. The big ones for our purposes are publication of proposed rules and limits on rulemaking authority. There has been a tiny bit of pushback on agency overreach by SCOTUS recently, see re: Sackett and the beatdown of the EPA, but not remotely enough. Congress can pass laws restricting what agencies can do. Courts can stop acting as if any agency action is due full deference and, more importantly, stop treating advisory letters from an agency as fully implemented rules.

The ban applies to the M855 because of the steel penetrator in it. Note that M193 won't be banned and is actually better then M855 at close range (inside of 200 yards or so).

 

The problem is logistical. Banning M855 decreases supply, hence increases costs. Since M855 is the NATO standard it is produced in many countries and military production overruns feed into the civilian supply.

 

So they are not banning 5.56 nor are they banning particularly good 5.56, but they are reducing the total supply which will increase cost. And the market won't act to counteract that fully, because M855 supply leverages off of government production/contracts.

Posted by: Fringe at February 27, 2015 08:08 AM (oWl4T)

307

Also, my understanding of the "armor piercing bullet ban" is that it only banned handgun rounds with a complete steel (or other designated material) core, and it does not apply to M855 since M855 has only a pasrtial steel core. Hence the administration is once again making up law as it goes along.

 

As I indicated in my last post, M193 is actually better at ranges you are likely to use your AR. For longer range use you are better off with heavy 75 gr or 77 gr match bullets used in rounds like Mk 262.

 

The M855 ban is nevertheless a very bad thing for the economic reasons I posted above.

313 "Here's another ironic thing- green tip ammo is actually less lethal than soft tip ammo. Green tip over-penetrates and soft tip tumbles upon penetration." Both tumble and fragment, but M193 is more consistent and more lethal, as well as cheaper. And it penetrates steel plate better too, at close ranges, owing to the velocity. And it has a slightly flatter trajectory over the first few hundred yards. M855's advantages only show up at longer distances, where Mk 262 is a better choice. That said the ban on M855 is disgusting. It is flat out wrong, and will drive up prices long term by reducing supply.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
