Re: Ammo Ban 8555 / 5.56 / 223
If, and it's a big if, they actually follow the law as it was intended, the green tip ammo shouldn't be banned. It not only doesn't meet the criteria as "armor piercing", it is also primarily a rifle round, which ALL rifle rounds are exempt from the law.
It's now only a "pistol" round because the BAFTE, the organization seeking to ban the M855, designated anything under a certain barrel length as a pistol.
I'm fairly certain criminals won't be purchasing or obtaining expensive AR "pistols" to commit their crimes.
But as we know, the law or common sense doesn't matter. It doesn't fit the anti 2nd Amendment agenda. I predict they will follow through with the ban.
