Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) has introduced legislation that will prohibit future ATF ammunition bans as the fight over attempts to restrict the Second Amendment intensifies.

The Ammunition and Firearms Protection Act would “prevent the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) from classifying M855 ammunition as armor-piercing and from instituting any ban on the sale and manufacture of ammunition that is intended, marketed, and sold for rifle use.”

McHenry accused the feds of launching an “assault on our Constitution and Bill of Rights,” adding that his bill is designed to “put an end to this attack on our Second Amendment.”

The move comes hot on the heels of a new bill introduced by four Democrats that would ban the sale of “green tip” bullets commonly used on the AR-15 rifle for sporting purposes.

After introducing the Armor Piercing Bullets Act, Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) asserted, “these rounds can easily be loaded into concealed pistols and other short guns, making them particularly dangerous to police officers.”

Last month, the ATF announced a “proposal” to ban green tipped bullets under a new regulatory framework that would remove the ammo from a list of exemptions under the justification that the bullets are “armor piercing” and are being used against law enforcement officers.

The federal agency backed down on the ban after a huge backlash from Second Amendment activists and gun groups, but indicated that it would attempt to resurrect the issue in future, with ATF Director B. Todd Jones saying the agency was “figuring out how we do this rationally”.

The prospect of the bullets being banned has prompted a run on supplies across the country, with gun stores reporting huge demand from customers eager to stock up.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
