M885 5.56Obama needs to concentrate on preventing the Iranians from getting nukes and not worry about what bullets American gun owners use for target shooting.
The military is searching for a new battle round because the M885 5.56 that obama is trying to ban is, as the military says, not lethal enough.
We wonder if the ban will include the .223? You can shoot a .223 in a rifle that is chambered for 5.56 but can't shoot a 5.56 in a gun chambered for .223.
The .223 is a pea shooter compared to the lethality of hunting rounds like the .243. 308, 270, 7mm, 300, 30 cal like 30.06 and any other round recommended for hunting big game that are in circulation by the millions.
Oh, and by the way AR does not stand for assault rifle as the OBN (Obama Broadcast Network) which owns NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, and NPR.) would like for you to think, it stands for Armalite the original manufacturer of the AR 15.
Obama knows he can't get this done but knows he can harass gun owners and run up the cost and deplete the inventory which has already happened.
Also the NRA has researched and no law enforcement officer has been killed by a 5.56 steel tipped round fired from a handgun, not a rifle, which was the concern when the armor piercing law was created. They knew at the time that all high velocity rounds were armer piercing but felt that the 5.56 could be used in a hand gun so it was included but was given an exception because of rifle use and has had the exception since the law was passed in I believe 1930 or 1936? Long time ago.
Also the Washington office of the Fraternal Order of Police, the world's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 325,000 members says that they know of no law enforcement organizations that have complained about the M855 ammo as obama said they have.

Obama should stick to gay rights something he knows about.
