obama could NOT steel the 2nd Amendment right from Americans using the Law, by going to Congress so now he is trying to do is by Executive Order. This is an egregious abuse of power. Eric Holder the soon to be former Attorney general of the United States said his greatest regret was not repealing the 2nd Amendment. BY the very definition of the law passed by Congress what obama is doing is in violation the law banning armor piercing ammo.
The real reason obama is doing this is that he hops that this Ammo ban passes so that he can go forward with more Ammo bans. obama said that if he cant get the guns then he will take the bullets the guns use. I have contacted my Congressional representatives and they HAVE supported the 2nd Amendment and sent letters to the ATF in opposition to this FARCE of an AMMO ban.
If you are a 2nd Amendment supporting American then you can send the ATF as letter, Email, or phone call stating your support for the 2nd Amendment.

To the ATF ,
I am writing to voice my strong opposition to the proposed change to current law that would make it illegal to manufacture, import or sell on the open market M855 / SS109 ammunition.
The claimed purpose of this change is to “protect the lives and safety of law enforcement officers from the threat posed by ammunition capable of penetrating a protective vest when fired from a handgun”.
As the Technical Branch well knows, all rifle ammunition of a common caliber such as .223 / 5.56 is capable of penetrating threat level IIA and IIIA body armor regardless of the firearm that is used to fire it. M855 / SS109 is no more of a threat to law enforcement than M193 or Horandy VMAX loads are.
It’s also worth noting that rifle caliber pistols are rarely used in violent crime, their usage is a statistical zero for all practical purposes, which further begs the question as to why this proposed rule change is being considered.
Banning the availability of affordable surplus ammunition under the false pretense that it’s in the name of officer safety is a clear violation of our 2nd Amendment rights.
