Obama administration temporarily drops ammo ban proposal

By Dr. John R. Lott Jr. Published March 10,

If President Obama can’t have his way with banning guns, it looks like his next option is to ban the bullets used by those guns.  Too often, Obama has shown little regard for the law.  He does what he wants.  If you want him to actually follow the law, you will have to take him to court.

The Obama administration had proposed a ban on one of the most popular and inexpensive bullets for America’s most popular rifle.  A majority of both the House and Senate have spoken out against the ban.  But Tuesday the Obama administration at least temporarily backed off on unilaterally rewriting the laws concerning what bullets can and cannot be sold.

Embarrassingly for Obama it appeared that his administration had jumped the gun on banning the bullets.  The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATF) latest "Firearms Regulation Reference Guide," released in January 2015 dropped the 1986 ruling that found the popular ".223 M855 'green tip' ammunition" meet legal requirements.  The change made it appear as if the decision was made before the Obama administration even asked for public comments.
