The ATF has announced that it intends to reclassify M855 ammunition as "armor piercing." The green tip ammunition is exempt for sporting purposes, and is commonly used in rifle practice and hunting. The new classification would effectively ban the popular AR-15 ammo. Larry Keane, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, explains that the Obama administration could not ban the modern sporting rifle, so it is now targeting its ammunition with the use of regulations. He vows that the NSSF will aggressively challenge the proposed changes, and urges gun owners to contact their congressmen and senators to stop the regulatory overreach.
