Sen. Graham Presses ATF for Answers on Armor Piercing Ammunition

NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- NSSF has been seeking answers from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to several questions concerning what constitutes “armor piercing” ammunition for purposes of importation and sale.

These questions are even more important since California has enacted legislation that will ban the use of traditional lead ammunition in hunting statewide once it goes into effect.

We brought this to the attention of U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and are very pleased by his effort to get answers to these questions from Attorney General Eric Holder. See Sen. Graham’s communication to the Attorney General.

    1. No lead = no lead ammo = ban
      copper ammo = armor piercing ammo = expensive = cop killer bullets = ban

      no lead, no copper = ban on effective ammo

    2. Backdoor treason. Invoke Art. I, Sec. 2 & Art. III, Sec. 3 NOW! Either that or civil unrest and Nuremberg II are just ahead.

      If your placing your faith in Lindsey Graham you have already lost the battle and probably the war.

      This is fruitless. Holder can’t read.
