A day after it was learned the ATF already ‘banned’ the ammunition – then said it was a ‘printing error’ – today says they are “shelving” the ban. Shelving it for now, to impose it later.
In a clever redirect of public rage – Obama’s ATF now says it will “shelve” the ban on AR-15 .223 ammunition it declared ‘armor piercing’, after it was discovered they violated law by already banning the ammunition without following procedural law for public comment, which the ATF insisted was a ‘publishing mistake’ .
While some will say we can now breathe a sigh of relief, I advise against sighing at all. They WILL BAN THIS AMMUNITION – and most likely overnight without any of us knowing it has been banned. Note the clever usage of words in their statement below that they will not “seek to issue final guidelines AT THIS TIME”.
“AT THIS TIME”.
They will ban it later – but NOT AT THIS TIME.
Why? Public and congressional outrage has to be diminished and then they will act in an instant once they think they have worn us out and can get away with it.
Of importance to remember is that White House Volksaufklärung und Propaganda Josh Earnest, stated last Monday that Obama is investigating new ways to enact further gun control by decree to his alphabet agencies.
“It would be fair to say, we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement, and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone” Earnest said.
So “the process is valuable for that reason alone”. What ‘process’ is that? Why the ‘process’ of Obama using Alphabet agencies under the Executive Branch to impose his will by decree outside of Congressional or public interference. They find using that ‘process’ “valuable” – and are looking at ‘additional ways’ to do so.
See, this ban is a ‘done deal’ – a ‘cake already baked’. What Obama wants, he gets by subterfuge, threats or imposition. It is the hallmark of a dictator, and he showcases that fact every single day.
The fact the ATF has ‘shelved’ this ban “at this time” is IRRELEVANT because I doubt you will be able to go to your gun shop or sporting goods store and purchase .223 green tipped ammunition now, or any time in the near future for that matter. The supplies are already bought up and what might be out there is available only in the secondary market at inflated prices. See, the government has gotten good at creating a shortage by simply making statements that cause a run over fears of it’s future unavailability.
We can only hope that the House and Senate use this time to create an offensive and pre-emptive effort to stop any attempt by the Alphabets to impose gun bans and control via execrative actions and decrees. But do not hold your breath – the GOP Leadership in both houses has demonstrated they will never stand up against Obama’s unConstitutional lawlessness when push comes to shove.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is shelving a controversial proposal to ban a popular type of bullet, amid opposition from hundreds of congressional lawmakers.
The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue the final guidelines “at this time.” The proposal pertained to M855 “green tip” ammunition, used in the AR-15 rifle; regulators looked at banning it because can pierce police body armor.
The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue final guidelines “at this time.” The agency said it will instead wait until Americans have finished commenting on the federal regulations and evaluate their comments and suggestions before “proceeding with any framework.”
The statement follows 52 senators and 238 House members joining in opposition to any attempt the Obama administration might make to ban the ammo.
“ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework,” the agency said Tuesday. “The issues raised (so far) in the comments ATF has received to date will require further consideration, and fully processing all of the comments will take time. Given the overwhelming interest in this issue, and the issues raised in the comments received so far, ATF will not at this time issue a final framework.”
