Proposed Green Tip Ammunition Ban of 2015

The ATF is attempting to ban "Green Tip" AR-15 ammo (XM855 and SS109) from the civilian market because it has a steel tip and can be fired from AR "pistols" – making it an "armor-piercing handgun cartridge". This would essentially be a ban on ammunition for the most popular rifle in America, as ARs are not intended to fire the weaker .223 cartridge. Since they can't take our guns, they're going for our ammo instead. Please take a moment to sign the petition against the ATF's unconstitutional proposal before 16MAR2015 by clicking this link:

Here is an article regarding the proposed decree:…/201…/batfe-to-ban-common-ar-15-ammo

In this article, the ATF is quoted stating that "armor-piercing" ammunition that can be fired from a handgun has no "sporting purpose" and therefore cannot be manufactured or sold for the civilian market. The 2nd Amendment is not intended for sporting purposes; it is for civilian defense against a tyrannical government. Please send the ATF your comments.
