Dems Still Aiming for Ammo Ban

Democrats are up in arms over the ATF’s decision to forgo – for now – its proposed ban on M855 ammo. New York Democrat Rep. Steve Israel’s office sent out a press statement condemning the ATF and demanding the bureau “reevaluate the decision and immediately ban 5.56 mm M855 green tip ammunition, commonly referred to as ‘armor-piercing’ or ‘cop-killer’ bullets.” Israel himself said, “The ATF’s decision to cave to the gun lobby and allow life threatening armor-piercing bullets to remain on the streets is not only reckless, but cowardly. I stand with our law enforcement officers and first responders who risk their lives every day to keep our communities safe – ATF should stop jeopardizing their safety and Congress must pass common-sense gun safety laws to protect lives and keep our men and women in uniform safe.” He can call this ammo “cop-killer” all he wants, but, as Ronald Reagan used to say, “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” Exactly ZERO cops have been killed by this “cop-killer” round, which, in our book, undercuts the scary name. But never mind the facts when Democrats want to infringe gun rights.
