If you haven’t already heard about this, pay attention! It’s a clear and present threat to the 2nd Amendment. It is legislation by executive action. True to his word,President Obama has taken steps to enact new gun control without Congress.
BATFE is now proposing to ban a whole class of common rifle ammunition used in that overwhelmingly popular firearm. Unfortunately, that’s just the beginning of BATFE’s latest move.
Comments will only be considered by BATFE if received by March 16, 2015. They may be submitted in any of three ways:
- Via email at APAComments@atf.gov
- Via fax at (202) 648-9741.
- Via mail to Denise Brown, Mailstop 6N-602, Office of Regulatory Affairs, Enforcement Programs and Services, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, 99 New York Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20226: ATTN: AP Ammo Comments.
Finally, please contact your U.S. Senators and Member of Congress. Urge them to oppose BATFE’s attempt to ban M855 handgun ammunition and other rifle cartridges that are overwhelmingly used by law-abiding Americans for self-defense, sport shooting and other legitimate purposes as “armor piercing.” Use the “Write Your Lawmakers” feature on our website or call the Congressional Switchboard at (202)-225-3121.
