NEWTOWN, Conn –-( 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.

This is fruitless. Holder can’t read.


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


Too bad that spent uranium is so hard to fabricate! LOL

Time to rid ourselves of ALL Liberals. They are terrorists like the Muslim Brotherhood and Barack Obama..


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


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

no lead, no copper = ban on effective ammo
