Police Organization Undermines Ammo Ban Rhetoric

The executive director for the Washington office of the Fraternal Order of Police, James Pasco, undermined the Obama administration’s rhetoric in its proposed ban on M855 “green tip” ammunition. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it wants to ban the popular AR-15 ammo because it can penetrate the bulletproof vests popular with law enforcement. But Pasco blew the cover off the ATF’s insincere concern for police officers. He told The Washington Examiner, “Any ammunition is of concern to police in the wrong hands, but this specific round has historically not posed a law enforcement problem.” He continued, “While this round will penetrate soft body armor, it has not historically posed a threat to law enforcement.” Instead, the Obama administration is using law enforcement as a political excuse – even as it continues slandering policing strategies as racist. Like most of Obama’s executive “tweaks,” this proposal will rewrite laws. The Second Amendment Foundation’s Alan Gottlieb told Fox News, “Almost any hunting rifle bullet will go through body armor, so you could prohibit almost any rifle bullet with this. This is the administration redefining the law on its own.”
