Bob Owens is the editor of the Second Amendment news hub, Bearing Arms. He is attending the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). He discusses the BATFE effort to reclassify M855 green-tip ammunition as "armor piercing." The effect would be to end the sporting exemption, and ban the second most popular ammunition for the AR-15. Owens notes that the ammunition does not meet the technical definition of "armor piercing," and will have difficulty meeting that legal definition. He explains that Congress can change just four words in the definition to have the reclassification apply to pistol cartridges only. It can be an amendment to any bill. He notes that President Obama will have to eventually sign one of those bills. Originally aired on NRA News Cam & Co 02/27/15.
