JPFO Alert: Impending "Armor-Piercing" Ammo Ban Bill Undermines Argument to Ban "Green Tip" Rounds

Today's JPFO Alert notes that the ammo ban zealots (ABZs) can't even decide how to claim to justify the ban.

But a larger point is that in claiming that the current law--banning ammunition by virtue of its construction--is inadequate, because an infinitude of ammo not so constructed is equally capable of penetrating body armor, they are tacitly admitting what gun rights advocates have been saying since the attempt to ban the M855 came to light. That round has no special "armor piercing" capability. Reps. Israel and Speier must know this, but that did not stop them from railing against the decision to shelve the M855 ban proposal.

And as always, if you haven't seen all the great JPFO Alerts written by David, Nicki, Claire, and Mama Liberty, you owe it to yourself to fix that.
