ATF Announces No M855 Ban at this Time

Below is the recent press release from the ATF being confirmed by the NSSF. You can see it here: http://www.atf.gov/press/releases/2015-03-021015-advisory-notice-those-commenting-armor-piercing-ammunition-exemption-framework.html

This is great news for many reasons.

  1. It’s good to see gun owners actually involved in stopping this.
  2. It’s good to see that the gov’t listens even if poorly and in a slow manner.
  3. It has shed light on the shady practice of the ATF and may open the door on limiting power.

Check out the below update from the ATF and get ready to buy some cheap ammo when everyone realizes they panic bought for nothing.

NOTICE TO THOSE COMMENTING ON THE ARMOR PIERCING AMMUNITION EXEMPTION FRAMEWORK

Thank you for your interest in ATF’s proposed framework for determining whether certain projectiles are “primarily intended for sporting purposes” within the meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(C). The informal comment period will close on Monday, March 16, 2015. ATF has already received more than 80,000 comments, which will be made publicly available as soon as practicable.

Although ATF endeavored to create a proposal that reflected a good faith interpretation of the law and balanced the interests of law enforcement, industry, and sportsmen, the vast majority of the comments received to date are critical of the framework, and include issues that deserve further study. Accordingly, ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework. After the close of the comment period, ATF will process the comments received, further evaluate the issues raised therein, and provide additional open and transparent process (for example, through additional proposals and opportunities for comment) before proceeding with any framework.
