As Obama takes over the internet today (Net Neutrality), he is also using executive action to impose gun control on us in this manner. Targeting the top-selling AR-15 style semi-automatic rifle, he is banning the sale of it's bullets. (223/5.56 ammo). The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives just announced this, which is targeted to go into effect in mid-March.
Good guy Republican Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary committee, quickly penned a letter to the bureau asking them to explain the suddenness of this action. The ammo in question is used for sports and rarely by criminals, but now the BATFE's excuse is they pose a threat to police and must be banned from production, sale and use.
As reported by the Times-Picayune of New Orleans: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced earlier this month it intended to outlaw .223-caliber steel-core ball ammunition because of concerns the rounds could pierce bullet-proof vests worn by law-enforcement officers.
Called green tips, the ammo has been exempt from armor-piercing legislation because it was historically fired only through rifles and was used primarily for sporting purposes. AR-15 handguns have grown in popularity recently, however, and that has prompted the change in policy, the bureau said.
This is simply one more illegal step in the only promise Obama ever kept, to profoundly change the United States of America.
Everyone laughed at charges Homeland Security was stockpiling ammo starting the year after Obama came into office. That isn't the only thing Homeland Security is doing that is shocking, but that's for another blog.
Private citizens running gun stores have been all but put out of business from all the gun regs Obama has slipped in over the years, including the difficulty in obtaining ammo to sell. As libs keep laughing over the idea Obama is pushing to ban guns in America, Obama is banning guns in America, any way he can, one executive order at a time.
So are you libs happy? Happy you voted in Barack Hussein Obama, a man who hates America so badly, he promised to fundamentally change it the minute he was sworn in, always using the Communist Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals which start with causing complete chaos, then slam so many different changes at Americans, they only find out what happened when it's too late.
No holds barred his last two years, Obama wrongfully uses "prosecutorial discretion" (used by prosecutors when, for instance, a defendant has so many charges, lesser charges may be dropped with the bigger charges remaining), he has acted as if he is the prosecutor (he is not) and continued not only walking on our existing laws but created new laws without the Congress even being involved.
Granting illegals Social Security cards, driver licenses and jobs is creating laws that heretofore did not exist. Last night, at an immigration
meeting, Obama responded to a question stating if ICE/Border Patrol do not follow HIS DIRECTIVE to allow any illegals coming in to stay along with those already here, THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES TO PAY. So he actually THREATENED these workers who took oaths to uphold the laws of our land. THIS IS AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.
In answer to other questions, he assured one young man that no matter what a Texas judge just did, the man's illegal (now required to call them "Americans in Waiting") mother would not be deported. If Congress decided to vote against his executive orders, he would simply veto their bill. No problem.
And more to his "Americans in Waiting" left wing audience who roared every time he mentioned doing something to Republicans. One day we will have a President Diaz or Chin, he assured them. I sure hope so, and I hope he is named Rubio, Cruz or Dr. Ben Carson, who just told CPAC if elected POTUS, he will send out whatever it takes to hunt down every ISIS extremist they can find and kill them all. To which I say to Dr. Carson, AMEN!
Three ISIS were just arrested in Brooklyn, N.Y., one wanting to kill the POTUS. But again, not to worry, they are only in all 50 states now.
And to Maria Harf, brilliant speaker for the State Department, Jihadist John lived in London, from a very wealthy family and is a college grad. So your admin's plan to get the jihadists jobs won't work for him. He's already loaded.
While our country's future looks bleak, my hope is in the Lord whose counsel our Forefathers followed to make it the greatest country on earth.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks here Tuesday, a holy period for Israel with signs and wonders in the heavens for anyone who has been following the blood moons, etc. God will not be mocked. We Christians wrestle not against flesh and blood but against evil principalities. I will say again, Obama walks on thin ice. He should take to heart the Bible verse, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God."
