They never shoulda let Brian Williams handle the reporting on it!:D

And they expect us to believe it wasn't typed up with the same spell checker technology that bugs the rest of us to death? Yeah, that's it. They musta been using Hillary's home based server. . .

BATFE walks back "framework proposal" as a publishing error

ATF Does About-Face on Ammo Ban, Calls It ?Publishing Mistake? | TheBlaze.com

Now this isn't a complete shutdown of their proposal I don't believe. The "framework" proposal was published in February, BEFORE they announced a period for public comment. I wouldn't be surprised if they just roll this back out after the legally required comment period.

In other news, a Rep has introduced a bill to remove the atf's power to regulate ammo.

Had a couple threads start just about the same time. I merged 'em together and threw 'em down into the Firing Line.

my guess is, someone over at the atf owns some stock in companies that make that type of ammo, and wanted a nice bonus. So they said, "we are going to ban it" nation wide it sales out, stock prices go up, they sell, and then say, oops, we weren't going to actually ban it

Thank you Wolf, for merging everything together. I along with numerous others are keenly interested in following the ATF's actions regarding this ammo. Job Well Done....

Just an FYI. The proposed ban isn't over. The decision still hasn't been made. The only thing they screwed up on was an early look at a paper they have been preparing to reveal if/when they actually ban it. (which of course could mean they have already made their decision to ban it and the able to comment part was only to make us feel better)

The game is still as it was. Keep bombarding them with emails etc.!!!

It wasn't a typo, they just realized there was enough support in congress to overturn an ammo ban and said it was a typo to save face.

The ammo makers couldn't hire anyone at any price to create as much demand for their product as some of these regulatory morons are (and for free, I might add.)

Simple explanation...

"Hey Bob, if we shut down the M855 ammo and it's no longer
manufactured, who we gonna get it from if WE need some?".

All the Best,

If they banned it, or "discontinued the exemption," it would still be manufactured and only available to govt and law enforcement. The Fed coats don't want the Serfs to have it, or get anymore rather.

If not for social media and forums such as TA, this kind of stuff would be harder to stop.

Prohibition created two industries, nascar and bootleggers. What do you think outlawing ammo will produce? Look at the war on drugs.....now pot is legal!!!
