AR-15 Ammo Ban First Step in Outlawing Guns, Opponents Say

By    |   Friday, 27 Feb 2015 03:21 PM

Backlash to the ATF's proposed ban on the armor-piercing 5.56mm M855 green tip bullet began to reach a fever pitch this week.

The NRA circulated petitions against it, and Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte announced that he'd gotten 100 fellow congressmen to sign an opposition letter to the ATF director. At the same time, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal led a chorus of Twitter users who called the ATF proposal a dishonest attempt at gun control, and many called out the Obama administration for attempting to rule the country by executive order.

Last but not least, The New York Times reported Thursday that the proposal has driven unprecedented ammo sales since its publishing on Feb. 13.

Gathered below is a sampling of the ongoing response to the proposed ban.
