Dr. Jason Baird is associate professor of Explosives Engineering and the deputy director of the Rock Mechanics and Explosives Research Center at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. At The Daily Caller, he has written, "Understanding the M855 Round and the Political Implications of the Ban." Dr. Baird says that the BATFE justification does not reflect the legal definition of armor piercing. Further, the exemption for sporting purposes is cast aside by the BATFE reasoning. He observes that acceptable ammunition by their definition could only be fired by a rifle or a single-shot handgun. Originally aired on the Sportsman Channel 03/09/15.
