Fairfax, VA –-(Ammoland.com)- On March 13, 2015, three days after the BATFE rescinded its proposed ammo ban framework regulation, anti-gun U.S. Representative Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) introduced H.R. 1358, a bill designed to ban civilian use and possession of M855 ammunition.

This is the same round that the BATFE, after meeting fierce bipartisan opposition from Capitol Hill and from NRA members and supporters across the country, decided to rescind its framework to ban M855 ammunition.

NRA opposes H.R. 1358 because it would restrict Second Amendment rights by banning common rifle ammunition used in America’s most popular rifle.

The BATFE and the Obama Administration failed to ban this ammunition through Executive fiat so Rep. Engel has decided to try and do so via the legislative process.

This is the same Rep. Engel that voted multiple times, and cosponsored bills, to ban so-called assault weapons as well as online ammo sales.

It is clear that Rep. Engel is not listening to the American people, who have time and again resisted these unconstitutional bans.

Please contact your U.S. Representative and urge him or her to OPPOSE H.R. 1358.

You can contact your U.S. Representative about this legislation by using our “Write Your Lawmakers” tool at www.NRAILA.org, or by phone at (202) 224-3121.  (Please see related story on federal legislation introduced to prevent the Obama Administration from banning ammunition.)

    1. I hope that Mr. Engle realizes that in the event of an armed insurrection he and his family will be sought out and dealt with by angry constitutionalists along with the left wing press, news commentators, politicians, university professors, and any and all left wing collectivists that would deprive the American people of their liberty, property, and lives. It will not be pretty it will be deadly serious as all revolutions are. Just look at what happened in Bosnia, Libya, and a whole host of other places and times when the people stood up and said enough is enough. There certainly are enough examples of armed insurrections throughout history to throw a chill on those that would take away our liberty. The gun grabbers do not realize this because they stand for nothing and just can not comprehend the fact that there are those that will stand up and lay down their lives for what they believe in. This is their mistake and they make it at their own deadly pearl. I do not advocate the violent overthrow of the government and I hope that an armed insurrection never happens in this country. Those that would stand up for their liberty will not fire the first shot but the collectivists need to realize and understand with deadly certainty that they will shoot back.

    2. We need legislation that will give ramifications for those that initiate and / or legislate laws and regulations, later found to be in violation of the constitution.

      1. NO, no,no. Then they’ll come to us unless we send them to some unpopulated island in the Pacific and I don’t know where that would be. Come to think of it, Australia has “lots” of unpopulated land in the “Outback” Hmmmm!
