Only one reason: because of pushback.
Of dissension and pushback and protest and writings and objection in the public venue.
Which is why, for example, the current US administration wishes to clamp down on your individual First Amendment and Second Amendment rights.
Because, without the Second Amendment, there is no such thing as a First Amendment.
This I fervently believe. As a cop for 41 years and with my concomitant beliefs, I have been quantified as a terrorist — by my federal government — because I believe in our foundational documents to include the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Additionally, I am an Oathkeeper.
I revel in my classification as a terrorist because I believe in our foundational documents. All others are nothing more than pretenders to the throne and above.
Including Barack Hussein Obama, who has an incredibly massive disregard for our national laws.
ATF says it won’t proceed with 5.56mm ammo ban
by Doug G. Ware
WASHINGTON, March 10 (UPI) — After public backlash to a proposal two weeks ago, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on Tuesday stepped away from a proposal to outlaw the sale of armor-piercing 5.56mm ammunition.
Please see my posts here and here.
After announcing the proposal to change the bullet’s exemption status, the bureau solicited public opinion on the matter. Tuesday, in a two-paragraph news release, the agency said it will “not at this time seek to issue a final framework” for the ban — due to the largely critical response from the public.
“Although ATF endeavored to create a proposal that reflected a good faith interpretation of the law and balanced the interests of law enforcement, industry, and sportsmen, the vast majority of the comments received to date are critical of the framework,” the bureau said, adding that some of the comments raised issues that warrant further examination.
Common sense won out. Temporarily.
Trust that Leftists are coming for your firearms.
If they are not now successful, they will never give up.
Plain and simple.
In any way possible.
