The Obama administration's latest attack on the Constitution is a proposed ban by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on popular M855 or "green tip" rifle ammunition—one of the most popular cartridges for the most popular rifle in America. After a massive outcry from gun owners and bipartisan majority opposition in both Houses of Congress, they pulled the ban for now.

But be assured, this fight is far from over. They will be back with likely even harsher action in the future. Because it’s clear this threat to ban ammo is a test case—if they can ban the most popular round from the most popular sporting rifle, then ATF and Obama will go after every cartridge they can.
