    Obama’s Stealth AR-15 Gun Ban Targets Ammo: “No One Can Import, Sell or Even Produce It”

    AR-15

    If nothing else can be said about President Obama, he has adamantly stuck to one key promise – the one he made to the Brady Center to pursue gun control ‘under the radar.

    The AR-15 is America’s most popular sporting rifle, and it has been falsely mischaracterized as an “automatic” firearm and an “assault” weapon. It has been demonized as a monstrosity via the Sandy Hook shootings. Bans on it and other so-called “assault weapons” have been attempted from every possible angle.

    And now that those measures have failed to accomplish total gun control, the Obama Administration, hungry to undermine the 2nd Amendment and restrict gun ownership, is using backdoor regulations through the BATFE to ban the sale, import and manufacture of the most affordable ammunition for the AR-15. Melissa Melton writes:

    “The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation.”

    Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, has hit the nail on the head.

    Following the Sandy Hook shooting, the Obama administration tried to ban several kinds of firearms, including the AR-15.

    Now it seems that he may have actually found a way to do it, albeit slowly. He isn’t going to outright ban the gun itself; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is just going to ban the most commonly sold bullets for the gun instead.

    This is being sold on the dubious pretext that it is “armor piercing” and a threat to law enforcement, while the AR-15 its common 5.56 mm ammo (.223 is also used) are not even remotely the most deadly weapons in the hands of citizen gun owners. Yet the bans and restrictions are centered around the perception that is a ‘military weapon best used in war, not on the streets of America…’

    Even the New York Times conceded this is the wrong focus for gun control advocates:

    It turns out that big, scary military rifles don’t kill the vast majority of the 11,000 Americans murdered with guns each year. Little handguns do.

    In 2012, only 322 people were murdered with any kind of rifle, F.B.I. data shows.

    The continuing focus on assault weapons stems from the media’s obsessive focus on mass shootings, which disproportionately involve weapons like the AR-15, a civilian version of the military M16 rifle. This, in turn, obscures some grim truths about who is really dying from gunshots.

    Annually, 5,000 to 6,000 black men are murdered with guns. Black men amount to only 6 percent of the population. Yet of the 30 Americans on average shot to death each day, half are black males.

    Moreover, justifying 5.56 mm ammo for a ban has proven to be a ridiculous game of semantics, with the technical rationale a paper-thin see-through farce. Forbes writes:

    Now, to be as nitpicky as the law, the M855 ball ammunition the ATF wants to ban as “armor piercing” doesn’t have a core made of the metals listed in what legally makes a bullet “armor piercing.” The M855 actually has a lead core with a steel tip. Also, the M855 is traditionally a rifle cartridge and the ban only covers handgun ammunition. The DOJ argues this doesn’t stop them because the law stipulates they can ban a bullet that “may be used in a handgun.” And, after all, any cartridge may be used in a handgun.

    The ban isn’t absolute, but it puts serious pressure on gun owners and definitely infringes on the right to keep and bear arms. Melton writes:

    So you can still legally own it if you already have it… but no one can import it, sell it, or even produce it.

    That’s of course if you can find and it and buy it before the ban takes effect. Prices have already been soaring on this ammo, and ammo in general, given the unrelenting assault on the 2nd Amendment by Obama and his allies, including former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who ironically was caught on tape admitted that his gun ban really targets racial minorities in inner cities. That focus, of course, won’t spare the rest of America’s millions of law abiding gun owners.

    It is clear that Obama’s “lame duck” years aren’t toothless soft power, but an opportunity for stealth attacks. Defied by Congress and much of the public, Obama has been emboldened in his actions knowing that there is little that can or will hold him accountable.

    We have a man occupying the White House that seems absolutely determined to stretch the limits of presidential power as far as they can possibly go.

    And at this point he has become so arrogant that he doesn’t even care if Congress believes that what he is doing is legal. Just consider what he said during one recent speech…

    “So in the short term, if Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote. I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do.” (source)

    A president that is willing to use executive actions, executive orders and his trusty ‘pen and phone’ to make unilateral legislation is even more dangerous in making quiet actions little covered by the media and mostly noticed only by niche groups of citizens.

    Author Michael Snyder dubbed it a ‘War on Preppers,’ targeting the 1% who have the foresight to stock up on ammo and supplies in order to remain prepared for all contingencies, including being appropriately armed for self-defense:

    Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15. That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition. This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation. Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly.

    Melissa Melton notes:

    Banning the right to keep and bear arms has been on the federal agenda for years now. It would appear that since the government knows it can’t just outright ban the Second Amendment, they’ll just inch it up incrementally and undermine it into oblivion.

    The lesson here remains eternal vigilance, and a reminder never to turn your back on a “lame duck” president in the age of executive actions and rule by agency.

      I really wish someone would take him out…to a nice dinner, on me of course.

      • eppe says:

        Wishful thinking, but we do NOT need a MLK again…

        • PO'd Patriot says:

          I don’t think there would be a whole lot of love lost at this stage of the game. And it there was….fine by me.

          • FuckingPissed says:

            I’d throw a party after laughing my ass off.

          • Gregory8 says:

            Naw, It’s just part of an economic stimulus plan aimed at the firearms industry (sarcasm off). By law, all federal agencies can propose changes in federal regulations but they must be posted and there is time set aside for ‘public comment’ before it can be put into effect. This allows all interested parties to state their reasons for and against the changes. In the mean time it allows the rest of us to buy even more guns, gun parts, ammo, and reloading supplies. We all knew this was coming but now that it’s near the prices on all of these goods will go up (stimulus). But those who have been prudent will be able to make a ‘killing’ if it does come to pass.

        • Nobama says:

          Another holiday from it would be ok.

        • Mountain Trekker says:

          Eppe I knew MLK, And Obama ain’t no Martin Luther King. But if you really want to hear a joke, you know all these emails you get about how many hunters are in this State or another and how on opening day of deer season, there is a bigger army than many small countries, well don’t count on them being much help in a SHTF senario, because they only went out and shot their rifle 2 times before they went hunting, and then they had to shoot 4 more times to kill their deer, so now they only have 14 rounds of ammo left in their box. I know that many on this site have a good supply of ammo, but that probably only constitues maybe half of the commenters on any given day. And how many does that amount to 15 or 20. So if your a reader of this site and not a commenter, stock up while you can. Trekker Out. Don’t Wait To Do It Someday!

          • Nobama says:

            “Black men amount to only 6 percent of the population. Yet of the 30 Americans on average shot to death each day, half are black males.”

            Corrected: Black men amount to only 0.000001 percent of the working population. Yet of the 30 Americans on average shot to death each day, half are black males committing their typical everyday crimes.

            • Yes and they are shot by other black men. They have the ISIS mentality, it means nothing to take another human life. I am also sick of hearing about Sandy Hook and how it is used for a gun control issue. The coroner walked out of the building and was asked what kind of gun was used “it was a long gun” he said. Well he lied, probably told to lie by the Administration. The long gun was found on the kids trunk after it was all over. Handguns were the only ones used, if they were used at all. Funny how all the families got new homes in different towns and no one has seen or heard from them again!!

              • tires of the lies says:

                Totally untrue! Google “Noah Pozner, sandy hook” and then “Noah Pozner- Afghanistan”. Right-click the photos of him with what appears like a school background. That poor kid got killed, TWICE- on two different continents (same name- oops)

              • Nobama says:

                No kids got killed at Sandy Hoax. The organizers did a very poor job of staging that incident. Too many red flags. The “parents” were hired actors. Accounts setup days before the event. Shooting drills scheduled the day before and the day of the event. Unfired AR in the trunk that was claimed to have been used. No ambulances allowed in. The list of red flags is bigger than the 9/11 scandal. The whole thing disgusts me. And the libtards are eating it up.

          • Kulafarmer says:

            I lost all my ammo,
            So i gave my guns away to somebody who was moving overseas,

          • Maverick says:

            MT, damned good advice. Not only do those hunters not really stock up on ammo, but those hunting rifles are for HUNTING, NOT COMBAT. Maybe some of the heavier calibers could be used for sniping IF that hunter has the right skills and enough ammo, but those rifles are not made for any sustained firefight. I have semiauto weapons except for my 12-gauge pump so I know those can hold up in a firefight, plus I’m well-stocked on ammo and still getting more. Also GET ALL OF THE GUN-CLEANING SUPPLIES, ESPECIALLY OIL, WHILE YOU CAN. I always keep extra bore brushes, patches, oil, Hoppe’s No. 9 solvent, etc. Also get some silicone cloths, little pricey but worth the extra money. They’re good for cleaning off any excess oil that gets on the outside of the weapon.

            • Freedom Fighter says:

              Who needs oil when you have an AK-47 and bolt action rifles? Id suggest getting some different “combat” guns, buddy.

              “Timeout! I need to oil! Gun jammed. Hey, I said timeout!” Yeah, good luck.

            • slingshot says:

              To Add.

              Having the right tools for the jobs will make repairs simple. A good set of jewelers files and jewelers screwdrivers. Sharpening stones, files, ceramics, and diamond infused sharpeners are a plus.

              Don’t forget about those tiny batteries. You can get them cheap at Flea Markets.

            • Nobama says:

              Mav, the best gun oil I use (and I’ve tried them all over many years and tens of thousands of rounds) isn’t even marketed as a gun oil. Buy a quart of Mobil-1 0W-20. Fully synthetic, sticks to the metal surfaces, still there after firing many hundreds of rounds, doesn’t burn off like many “gun” oils. Makes cleaning easier. One quart lasts forever.

              I’ll never again buy any high-priced oil marketed as gun oil.

            • Paranoid says:

              Sorry to disagree Mav.Brave; but no need for combat rifles. Anyone that gets into combat action with an army dies. Those deer hunters kill more deer each year than the total of US combat troops. Only way to win is same as US Army proposed for USSR Tanks: Shoot and scoot. One Rd and then get the hell out. Even then, Comes to it. No real need to face the Army at all, just gut shoot a few thousand Political officers. One Rd one OFFICER. No need to shoot grunts. The Army is our kids; the problem is a bunch of Polits that just want ever more power, and couldn’t care less about the Law (This post sure moved me up a few slots in the Gov Enemies list)

              • Maverick says:

                Paranoid, I know you mean well and appreciate your concern, but ANYONE who points a weapon at me WILL buy the farm and I don’t care WHO it is. I’ll do my bet to make every one of my rounds count, but whatever happens just happens. As long as the grunts [US grunts] DON’T point any weapons at me, they’ll live.

          • Paranoid says:

            Good lord Trek don’t tell them to stock up. We just started to get some ammo in the stores. People been stocking up as fast as the ammo Co’s can make it for 3 years now. Sorry to argue with you but it looks to me as if LOTS of people have LOTS of ammo. They sure as hell sucked up Millions od rds where I live.

            • Mountain Trekker says:

              Para the WalMart I go to rarely has any ammo, even before this latest panic. Rocky Mountain has ammo but it’s always out of sight. I agree that many have plenty! But I’m afraid the masses are still living in a dream, and think ammo will always be available when they need it. Trekker Out.

            • Maverick says:

              Paranoid, I don’t like ammo shortages either, but you have to blame the gun grabbers in the aftermath of Sandy Hook for the situation. Everyone with good-sized stockpiles are going to really need them when the time comes. I wouldn’t be stockpiling like I have over the last 3 years on ammo if it wasn’t for the gun grabbers. That threat won’t go away without the gun grabbers being eliminated. I’ve already sucked up a lot more rounds than I want to and still getting more while I can. What else re people going to do?

        • TPSnodgrass says:

          Biden as President?, Please! WE do not need another fool in the White House, two are bad enough!

          • Nobama says:

            Biden is Obola’s insurance policy. He was not chosen for his skills and expertise in Vice Presidency, he was chosen because he is an idiot and no one, including the most extreme libtards, would want Biden as the Idiot-In-Chief.

          • apache54 says:

            TPS,
            well think about it!!!! Biden would be better than what we now have, he would not last long anyway, so don’t worry about biden.

        • swinging richard says:

          Where do our politicans get their information on guns and ammo. To call that round armor piercing is a bit of a streach.

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        Nicely played Dunjin.

      • Audentis Fortuna Iuvat says:

        I disagree with Mr.Snyder. It is a war on American companies that manufacture this ammo,American companies that Import this ammo.American people that use this ammo. And American gun ranges that charge us to use their facilities. As far as this ammo running in short supply,I laugh at ANYBODY that did not see this coming six years ago. ……you should ALREADY have a shit-ton of it.

      • Acid Etch says:

        Can’t own an AR legally in my shit state. But you can own a much bigger caliber rifle. It’s only banned because these soccer moms all think the AR LOOKS like a big scary terrorist weapon.

        It’s kind of ironic that I want a smaller rifle but it’s banned, don’t you think?

      • Acid Etch says:

        Today I watched all of the CPAC speeches. I didn’t learn a damn thing from any of them except Gingrich.

        Newt wasn’t meant to be president but he is one of the brightest thinkers. I always learn a lot when he speaks.

        And Sarah Palin gave me an erection.

        So who are you people backing for president? I don’t even give a damn anymore, although I will still do my duty and vote.

        • Mountain Trekker says:

          Well youngster, I’m still trying to decide between Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. Kinda like my choice of clothing, wool or goose-down both are good. But with clothing I can have both. Trekker Out.

          • Acid Etch says:

            Wool blocks wind better than a nylon hardshell and retains warmth when wet but freezes stiff as a board in freezing rain.

            Down loses all its insulating properties when wet.

            Get a polyurethane-coated nylon 3-in-1.

          • Pissed Off Granny says:

            Trekker:

            Please explain your choice of either of these men or for that matter any damned politician on the national scene.

            For any of them to have risen to Senator they had to be supported with “money” for their election; where did that come from and why?

            Ted Cruz has a wife that works in a high level at Goldman Sachs. Does that even give you pause?

            Rand Paul has been in Israel banging his head on the ‘wailing wall’ and is totally upfront with his support for Zionist Israel. Far cry from his father, Ron. Rand knows he MUST fall in line with the Israeli firsters.

            There are dyed in the wool G. Beck supporters here at SHTF; and I think you are one of them. Have you ever wondered where Becks’ “pitchfork” ideas for an out of control government disappeared to? He now sits behind a warm desk, surrounded by ‘your gold’. Writing? book after book, pushing product after product, commercial after commercial, and just keeping his “sheep” corralled enough with his version of what is wrong in America to keep them donating and buying.

            What is it that makes a patriot think that any political candidate choice Glen Beck puts out there will have any thing to do with AIPAC’s choice of who your next president will be?

            Beck is a useful tool for AIPAC and Israel with his “it’s the Muzzies” rhetoric. He reminds me of a female Oprah, and at some point he, too, will be held accountable.

            • Pissed Off Granny says:

              To quote Kurt Hoffman:

            • Maverick says:

              Howdy, Granny. I agree Beck is just another shill. I never waste any time standing in a long line waiting to choose between a Democratic turd or Republican turd. They’re all the same to me. Beck looks like someone I got into a fight with back in grade school. And I WON the fight.

            • Mountain Trekker says:

              POG I hate to get into a personal argument on this site, but I could really care less what you think. As for my choices. There has only been one perfect man on this earth, and He is not here now in the flesh. So it matters not who you like, nor whether you vote or not. But some one is going to be elected to the office of President, so you can either attempt to decide that out come or sit on the side line and complain. As for Glen Beck and Israel, You must be a Obama supporter, because like you, he hates them both. Trekker Out. Ass’ed Itch You Know My Choices!

              • Pissed Off Granny says:

                Just a little background on Cruz and his wife.

                Both are graduates of Harvard Law School.

                Heidi Cruz began her career as an investment banker for J.P. Morgan in New York.

                In 2000 served on the Bush 2000 campaign in Austin as one of Bush’s economic advisors.

                She served in the Bush administration as the economic director for the Western Hemisphere at the National Security Council at the Whitehouse, advising the president and the then National Security Advisor, Condoleeza Rice. She is also a former director at the US Treasury Department and was special policy assistant to Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick, then Chief US International Trade Negotiator.

                HEIDI CRUZ WAS A TERM MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS (CFR).

                P. Edward Haley, a professor of International Strategic Studies at Claremont McKenna College, and one of Heidi’s mentors said, “Absent Ted, I don’t think Heidi would be moving in that PARTICULAR branch of the Republican Party”.

                Ted Cruz’s Obamacare speech was not a true filibuster. A true filibuster is an attempt to stop legislation dead in its tracks by refusing to let the senate proceed. Rather, Cruz’s time on the floor was an agreement he made with Harry Reid to let him talk for 21 hours, followed by a vote at 1 pm EST 9/25/13.

                When the vote commenced, Cruz in fact voted in FAVOR of advancing the bill.

                Trekker, I expect Beck to “vet” his support of candidates before he introduces them to his followers. If the Cruz family background satisfies you that they are the Americans you are looking for to lead America out of the abyss then by all means give them your support.

                Their background suggests otherwise, they are just another slick part of the Washington Insiders.

                Just for your info, Trekker. I was a Beck supporter when he worked for Faux. Supported him, bought his books, thought him to be a true patriot. Didn’t see his Israeli firster side until he acquired his own network. He has been around the MSM long enough to know the truth of who/what they are. He also knows his career would be destroyed in a heartbeat if he ever cared to tell you the truth.

                You may be able to overlook AIPAC and their strangle hold on the America that I love, I cannot. You may be able to overlook who owns the feral Fed Reserve, I cannot. You may be able to overlook Albert Pikes description of the 3 world wars and how they would be accomplished, I cannot.

                As far as your comment about me being an Obama/Muslim supporter, that is laughable. I despise all the PTB who are ruining our world….Obama and Muzzies included.

                But I am smart enough to know it takes money to forment what is going to be WW3 and the Federal Reserve will be the go to money men; and it is not owned by muzzies. We are financing our own demise. How ironic.

      • TEST says:

        From Dr. Hyla Cass, as reported by Dr. Joseph Mercola. Mercola’s focus is health, so it is interesting he reported the below:

        “While I was in my residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, I began to notice that medications had side effects… It would be okay if the side effects were worth it, but most of the time they weren’t…” Side effects of antidepressants run the gamut from sexual side effects to lack of emotions or “emotional flatness,” restlessness, sleep disturbances, brain damage, and thoughts (and actions, tragically) of suicide, and even homicide. *********Virtually all of the school and mass shooters, for example, have been on antidepressants.
        “You could say, “Well, of course, they were on antidepressants. They were disturbed and that’s why they did the shooting.” But a comparable number of people who were not on antidepressants and having similar problems did not become school shooters,” Dr. Cass notes. “The difference was, first of all, they were genetically predisposed to have that reaction to the medications — but nobody’s looking at genetics when they prescribe medication.*******

        These shooters were either just newly on medication, or had just had some sort of change in their medications or dosage; ie regardless of details, there was something going on with their medications before the event. And that’s a terrible tragedy. A lot of this information has been suppressed, too.”

            • Plan twice, prep once says:

              Just to clear up a few details, as I understand it, only steel tipped ammo was made illegal, a copper plated FMJ lead ammunition is still legal, as are the hollow points with colorful green plastic tips (even green ones) that fill the hollow point and make the bullet fly true.

              Further they made steel tip AR ammo illegal to manufacture, sell, imports etc. If you already own it, possession is not a crime, neither is shooting it at the range, but if I had a case of green steel tip, I would not be wasting it at the range.

              There is no reason to sand off the green paint, unless you want the tips to rust!

              If you have bags of bullets and reload, it may be technically illegal to do so with steel tipped bullets. However, to posses either the components or the completed ammo is not a crime for the gun owner. To admit you manufactured i.e. reloaded them yourself may be a crime. So don’t freaking admit it to anyone, anytime, anyplace or the government will go all Ruby Ridge on you!

              Please anyone correct me if anything I said above is incorrect!

                  Never admit anything to the police. If you say anything, anything at all, “it can and will be used against you”! If circumstantial evidence brings into question any statement you made, it can be taken out of context, repackaged and used against you.

                  This new police state they are building is frightening, the only words to come out of anyone’s mouth these days are, “I choose to remain silent, I want a lawyer, am I under arrest, or may I go now!”

        “…no one can import it, sell it, or even produce it.”

        If, and ONLY IF, this would also apply to Fed/state/local government agencies and entities, then it could be a legitimate ban.

      It’s BOTH sides of the aisle and every single person in DC that are either actively seeking to claim authority over our natural rights, or passively allowing them to be usurped.
      Peaceful noncompliance will only take us so far and sooner or later, were going to be pushed into taking the action reserved for us, illustrated in the Declaration of Independence if altering or abolishing this form of government.
      When any sitting president feels comfortable enough in his office to make the declaration that “we’ve expanded my authority, and even if congress votes against it I’ll veto it”, it is well past time for passive resistance and begging at the feet of government.
      I say we first stop funding them.

    11. Incrementally, methodically, one little step at a time…some notice, but most don’t. Then, when enough of the little dams up stream have all broke, the amount of water backing up at the proverbial “BIG”‘ dam will be just too much. But alas, many, many more small dams need to be dismantled, which is right in line with their agenda, before we reach that point. All the while, the malleable programmed minds of the dumb down masses continue feasting on mind altering resources that only prolong the inevitable, colossal shake down.

      For those of you who are hoping for some light at the end of the tunnel. It’s too late. We will never return to the “good old days”, besides, the “good” in those days was always an illusion; a picture postcard world of make believe, setting us up for being totally under their mind controlling spell.

      SO, get used to the new world. Learn to adapt. If you don’t have what you want right now, get it while you can, and then, hide it and save it for a rainy day, ’cause the storm is going to blow the minds of the many and life is going to get downright nasty, medieval at some point in the not so distant future…say around 2020.

      Lastly. Better have the means to stay centered and grounded. It’s all going to get beyond crazy. Beyond anything we can imagine. Choose a universe where sanity prevails, one that nourishes the mind and body. Even the internet will reach a point where one’s immune system will be severely challenged. Best to wean oneself off the sites one is addicted to, now. Learn to be happy without the ‘net. IT’s coming.

      I am so discouraged by this government – it doesn’t in the least represent me anymore. I LOVE my country, God help me I do love it, but the powers that run it are a hopeless mess – with rare exception.

      I still vote, I write my congress critters, I e-mail ’em, I call ’em, fax ’em, sign petitions – and the list goes on. But there is LITTLE difference between red/blue, Dem/Repub. They are (for the most part) hopeless, helpless, gutless wonders.

      I don’t know what’s next, n quite honestly I’m afraid to see what will happen next. Some idiot will begin something he can’t finish, and the rest of us lack the guts to do anything about it – even when the PTB over react to it. Then the government will use the event (like they did at Sandy Hook) as an excuse to take ALL our rights away. I think it’s possible they may even perpetrate a black swan event just to give them an excuse to declare martial law, take away our God given rights, or act in a similarly egregious manner.

      And I’m afraid we’ll allow it. I’m discouraged as I look around me and see the spineless behavior on the part of all of us – congresscritters and civilians. Sheep and Sheepdogs alike. All while the wolves play — unbridled, unhindered, and unchecked. May God have mercy on our souls!

          hey guys I know this is a little off subject but I just got a point blank interceptor vest I heard this was a IIIa vest I know very little about body armor but looking to get some gear what are your thoughts of any of you that has any time with this stuff and as always thanks for you input and advise

            Your protection level should be on the label sowed onto the fabric. Odd you know that it is Interceptor (Military?) Body Armor and not the level of protection. Hope you didn’t just purchase the carrier.

          • buttcrackofdoom says:

            better get some “hard plates” for that vest, because EVVERRRYYYBODY will have battle rifles out there when it all goes to shit. that III3A is only going to protect you if you get shot with a pistol, for the most part. 308 is going right through it. search for “what will level III3A stop”, or similar, to find some great youtubes/articles on the subject…there’s a good one on survivalblog… those of you that aint got a vest yet, are gonna be SORELY dissapointed when the shootin’ starts, pun intended.BTW, if yer lookin’ for military vests(my PERSONAL choice) you need to know that the bigger sizes are almost impossible to find, as there aren’t any “big” people allowed in the military any more. i feel VERY fortunate to find an XL, and when i do, i gotta pay a much higher price for them. when i sell this stuff at the gun show, the people that are asking for them are ALWAYS BIG(even though they don’t KNOW that)… and don’t pay TOOO much attention to dates, just make sure it hasn’t been abused. more often than not, they can be found in as-new condition…and don’t forget the helmet to go with it….again, XL is much harder to find.

      It’s clear by the Federal government’s actions of continued violations of the rights of the American people, that the time is approaching soon when Americans will have to defend themsevles by force of arms because of the federal government’s deepening encroachments.

      We have as president, an undocumented, illegal alien usurper, whose mission has been all along the destruction of the United States. Our congress is sold out to the will of the antichrist Obama, and our military has been neutered to the point of joining the gay agenda.

      We the people are on our own, yet we are not alone, “For anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” Having a right relationship with God through his son Jesus is of most importance in these demonic dark days. Repent of all sin and be strong in your faith in Jesus. It is after all faith in Jesus which is the victory which has overcome the world.

      Make plans on how best to use your firearms and other armaments when the time comes to do so. Be confident, determined, and not double-minded when the shooting battles start. Remember your rights and stand on what the Declaration of Independence says is our duty to do when government turns tyrannical and oppressive.

      God bless you all, in Jesus name. If we don’t ever meet each other in this life, may we by the grace of God meet each other on the other side where there will be no more wars, no more corruption, and no more death.

    21. The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) is, on its face, unconstitutional in its entirety. Citing an unconstitutional law to justify non-existent regulatory authority, smacks of subversion and treason.

      Par for the course, I suppose.

    22. Sharon says:

      My go to gun for all occasions is a simple sporterized SKS and the ammo I have for it for emergency long term use is Chinese copper washed steel core I loaded up on back before it was banned as AP and was absolutely dirt cheap to buy in cases of hermetically sealed tins.

      Hard hitting, big hole in what it hits at any range, accurate enough to hit deer sized targets at over 300 yards, low profile, easy to carry and can shoot through multiple obstacles. Ammo loaded on stripper clips is compact and light weight to carry compared to ammo loaded in magazines and strippers reload it almost instantly from any shooting position if you practice a bit to learn how. It’s in my truck 24/7. I highly recommend the SKS.

      My in home up close and personal defense guns are a simple 5 shot .38 snubby revolver and an AR pistol along with a 12 and 10 gauge shotgun. (actually, the AR pistol is a valid weapon for close range or using from the cab of a vehicle but somewhat of a novelty gun so the 12 gauge would be what I’d grab first).

      Those guns -the AR probably excepted- are not on anyone’s priority for banning list and not likely to attract undue attention if anyone knows you have them since they don’t have the scary “assault rifle” appearance but are actually fearsome weapons in their intended uses (including military confrontations).

      I’m not a big fan of the AR platform rifles, they seem to be overpowered and a bit unweildly for close range use and underpowered for longer range use and need a lot of maintenance to be reliable, but to each his own.

      In the end, it isn’t the gun that counts, it’s the person using it and his or her tactics in doing so.

      Just bought 1000 rounds from PalmettoState Armory, it’s still available it here and they aren’t gouging the price. An AR is not my only gun but it has a tactical use in some situations. I also agree with the poster who said the green tip is not the optimal 5.56 round for many situations.
      As for the ATF’s right to do this, what can you say. Regulatory agencies like the ATF ARE Congress now. They draft new laws and Cogress appears powerless to stop them. The President acts lawlessly because he knows the Congress will not implement its main weapon against Presidental misconduct; impeachment. They and a sizable portion of our population have been brainwashed into believing Blacks should get a pass on abominable behaviors because of wrongs done them in the past. Huge swaths of our population live in terror of being branded with the dreaded R word. Obummer knows this and is exploiting it to the nth degree. That’s why the king makers put him in there in the first place, they knew he could get away with behavior that would not be tolerated by a white President. That is also why Hilary Clinton, or if she stumbles Liz Warren is being anointed by the powerful, the same psychology will apply. Who is gonna step up and impeach the first woman President no matter how lawless. It is a winning play book and after 16 years of such nonsense believe me our country WILL be fundamentally transformed.
      I am old fashioned , I believe men and women are responsible for what they do, and I will speak out for them to be held accountable for their actions.

    51. Ben Raines says:

      Before the last ammo shortage, I had, already, reduced my gun “collection” to only four calibers/types. 9mm, 5.56, .22lr, and 12 gauge. I kept plenty others; 38special, 30.06, 7.62, 30-30, 45auto, etc., but I made a decision to only purchase ammunition for my glocks and sub2K, LMT, shotguns, and 22s.

      At the time I was all worried about SHTF, a Hilary WH, fiat currency, etc. I thought that some kind of collapse was looming, and I wanted to be prepared for it while I was biding my time on the mainland before relocating back to my wife’s birthplace… Hawai’i.

      At the time, I figured that I would load up on things that I could sell with little problem JUST before we made the final move. I wasn’t sure which/if any of my weapons/ammo I could legally (or otherwise) ship back to Hawai’i. But I bought a shit-ton of beans, bullets, bandaids, and bullion just in case something dreadful happened before we could finalize our move.

      Well… before my purchases, I shot all kinds and brands of ammo. I settled on specific brands that MY weapons did best with. For example, CCI minimag .22lr because my finicky sig mosquito didn’t hate them, and my rugers will shoot anything. Similar stories for each caliber.

      I shot at a lot of paper (and a few coyote/groundhog). I researched u-tube and websites like SHTFplan to see what others were doing. And when it came down to bulk ammo for my LMT AR-15, I chose Federal 5.56×45, xm855, 62 grain. Those green tipped cartridges performed great in 95 degree, super muggy weather, and when it was only 7 degrees out. ZERO failure to load or fire.

      Today I am wondering whether to sell ANY of my collection of arms/ammo before leaving the mainland. Those 5.56 metal boxes of 420 rounds weigh 16 pounds!!!, though.

      Oh well.I’ve got about a year or two to figure it out.

      Any thoughts (Kula)???

            Lots of folks live off grid here in the islands, is perfect for a sustainable and self sustaining lifestyle.
            Is perfect for alt power, lots of sun and most places have decent wind,
            Some of that depends on location but im sure that stuff you sre aware of, i mean you wont be building a little farmstead in a town or resort area, but lots and lots of country spots where its perfect!
            Good deal that you are honoring your relationship,,, been with my sweety for 16+ years and cant imagine not being with her,,,

      • Kulafarmer says:

        I would definitely keep what you have.
        What island? Im on Maui.
        Cant hunt with that stuff over here, legally, not on state land anyway, but private yes, not the best round for local game anyway. Pigs, deer, i like 308, mots of those, 270 is real popular to, old standby 30-06, is pretty much a personal thing.

        If you are paying a mover just be aware of limitations for shipping ammo etc, if moving yourself, best if you spread it out in your boxes etc,
        I didnt tell you that though,,,,

        Cheapest way to move is get a shipping container hauled to your house and fill it yoursel, if your on a tight budget, get those van packs, are a ply box 6’8×6’8×36″or 48″
        Pack it yourself and get a consolidator to ship, or Knaak boxes too for tools and stuff.

        Range sich sorta sucks, and theres no open carry, no concealed carry, they are pretty persnickety about it too, but its not totally impossible to live with,

        Is a pretty melow place to live, even Oahu, bit more of a rat race over there but is not bad,

        My fave is the Big Island, grew up over there, is just a lot lower density of peeps and more space, better 4wheeling and fishing etc, but all islands are nice. Molokai, eh…… Unless you have family there and even then i would be hesitant.

        Work wise….. Theres some, not like the late 80s early 90s or mid 2000s but theres work. Lousy pay mostly, but if you have means youll be ok.

        Anywho, You will like it for the weather and more laid back lifestyle, you get used to the commy covernment, or getting around it anyway, and youll find that crud almost anywhere nice to live these days.

        Cheers!

          Gotta clarify a bit on the hunt part and caliber,
          The state regs require a round that exerts not less than 2600 Ft LBS on contact, so most 223 ammo doesnt get that, i load heavier .224 bullets for an AR i have and it all specs over the 2600 ft lbs, that said i dont use it for hunting anyway, i may at some point for head shots but right now i just use my Ruger 308

          I have been hoarding 10 round glock 17 mags. And am seriously considering changing from 5.56 to 308. I am confident that I can get my 29cents per round cost average back on this green tipped evil 5.56 I have.

A few hours later, and just a couple miles east of the robbery attempt, some gang bangers decided to shoot at each other on the exit ramp from the expressway at Harlem Ave. One wounded.

      As circumstances progress and we find ourselves in dire straits, trying to keep our Constitution alive. Will the majority of the prepper movement fight for all Americans. Has it not crossed your mind that you do not want to fight for those who continually agree with the policies of this administration. I gravitate more to those who walk among me more than the one’s clothed in uniforms. I also think I would not let people off the hook without some form of chastisement for their actions. No excuse for the under educated masses.
      So ban this or ban that. Make me a criminal. I am not alone. Just be willing to accept the consequences of your actions or inactions on either side of the debate.

      Wonder who will be the first to come up with a 3D printer bullet?

    55. Ass hat says:

      Reload ears should put tungsten in the core when they cast their bullets. From what I understand this makes it a true armor piercing load. Depleted uranium would be good if you could find these things. Cops saying the green tips are made to go through tactical nylon. That’s why they don’t want you to have it. Tptb think guns are for shooting paper targets just get a pellet gun it will work for that. Ammo manufacturers need to figure out how to make effective ammo out of new materials.

    56. Woogie says:

      The only reason the Big 0 banned this ammo is so defenders of liberty can’t stop his well armed civilian militia when he declares Marital law after destroying and confiscating all we have when the crash comes down hard.

      In order to establish a dictatorship, the economy has to be very, very bad off. He has to disarm the people, take control of the media and internet to spread lies and deceptions and ban the truth, make the law-making elected body of congress irrelevant, declare Martial Law with his well armed civilian militia, force opposition into prisons, take over local government offices, make it all look legal, and rule to create fear on the right, and optimism on the left.

      From Hitler’s playbook. So, how much is this happening now?

    57. Enemy of the State says:

      We’ll be fighting in the streets
      With our children at our feet
      And the morals that they worship will be gone
      And the men who spurred us on
      Sit in judgment of all wrong
      They decide and the shotgun sings the song

      I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
      Take a bow for the new revolution
      Smile and grin at the change all around me
      Pick up my guitar and play
      Just like yesterday
      And I’ll get on my knees and pray
      We don’t get fooled again
      Don’t get fooled again

      Change it had to come
      We knew it all along
      We were liberated from the fall that’s all
      But the world looks just the same
      And history ain’t changed
      ‘Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war

      I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
      Take a bow for the new revolution
      Smile and grin at the change all around me
      Pick up my guitar and play
      Just like yesterday
      And I’ll get on my knees and pray
      We don’t get fooled again
      Don’t get fooled again
      No, no!

      I’ll move myself and my family aside
      If we happen to be left half alive
      I’ll get all my papers and smile at the sky
      For I know that the hypnotized never lie

      Do ya?

      There’s nothing in the street
      Looks any different to me
      And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
      And the parting on the left
      Is now the parting on the right
      And the beards have all grown longer overnight

      I’ll tip my hat to the new constitution
      Take a bow for the new revolution
      Smile and grin at the change all around me
      Pick up my guitar and play
      Just like yesterday
      Then I’ll get on my knees and pray
      We don’t get fooled again
      Don’t get fooled again!

      Stephan Berndt is one of the best german expert about prophecy. His book about Alois Irlmaier is one of the best book about the prophecys. He works very professional and puts all the informations about any prophecy after the year 1.000 behind Christ in a computer program to make his analyse. So if you can read german please read the book
      “Alois Irlmaier: Ein Mann sagt, was er sieht”

      Believing that the Constitution is still valid is a strategic error. We are outmaneuvered and Fed Gov Inc is so fearful they prosecute a covert war against its own citizens. To deny this is also a strategic error.
      The laws have been promulgated and are in place. They promulgate liability for their actions now. Borders sans constitution 100 miles wide, Police black ops in Chicago at least, the police state in general. Any movement for redress whether small, medium or large with be dealt with extreme prejudice and if effective institute continuation of government. A leader will not be allowed. After 1963, change has not come about politically and never will. The situation is dire.
      I have no answers but perhaps something like a Constitutional Reaffirmation. Where Nanny State and Uncle Sam are specifically excluded. Like China, BRICS and Eurasia with their Shanghai Economic Cooperation Union where Sam and Nanny are excluded specifically because they are corrupted and hegemonic. Can it be done? Maybe we can bloodlessly turn exceptional and indispensable into irrelevant and suitably humble but I have my doubts. Its allowance would tell the tale.
      So, a western reset will eventually come once our blood stops flowing for the wrung stone bleeds yet. In the west the drips slow as Nanny’s computers click while a golden sun rises in the east to push their own button. Shanghai will now fix the price of gold and silver and not solely the western manipulators. The east rises to reset and the paradigm pivots eastward, along with the remains of our hoard.
      Chinese wring golden stones good, mister. All good reset buttons are made in China, mister. You want to sell some gold, eh? Think that will keep you out of debtors prison, eh? Will that be the western price or the real price. Time is up, you took too long to choose. You get what we say. Move along, constitutional arguments are taken through the turnstiles over there. Next!

I’m a believer in if you want something done right do it yourself. Our common ground is the constitution are we not willing to get ugly for it. Start the movement I will support and show up. Otherwise quit bitching and find ways around it if you can. I suggest do something now before the sacrafice is too great. I know nothing like a march on Washington will happen.

      Bow down to king obama and his minions or be killed. That scenario seems possibly close ahead. What we are facing here is total tyranny. When is at least non violent protest going to sink into American’s heads? It would have to be non violent mass protest initially for people to wake up at the government reaction to those legal protests. It’s hard to believe people would ignore what is clearly happening before their eyes and refuse to stand up for truth and justice. That option will work, ignore their dictates against public assembly and free speech. Wake the people up and into reality. Our voices count.

      • just me says:

        I would agree with you aljamo. Unfortunately, there are way too many idiots who are gunning for a fight. It would only take one shot and that peaceful assembly would turn into a bloody massacre. Are you willing to leave your safety in the hands of any and all the people that show up for such a “peaceful rally”. Trust me, the feds will not have as much restraint with a bunch of “gun toting, anti government preppers” as they did in Ferguson.

      and WE, are concerned they are coming to systematically illegally seize OUR legally owned/possessed/used firearms?
      Which Federal employees or DOD personnel would be that freaking stupid?
      This is a scare tactic to drive up the cost of ammo, to thereby deny the use of said ammo to the LEGAL populace. The Obamafuerher has done NOTHING to stop, curtail or reduce the murderous carnage of Black-on-Black violence in his adopted hometown of Chicago. he’s somehow now going to be able to cobble together a group of “operators” to illegally seize lawfully acquired and possessed property of US citizens? After the first 50 maybe 10 residences that are hit, the rest of the national population would not comply at all. Not a chance. This is a Proglodyte-Scare-Tactic, is all.

      There is nothing wrong with the 5.56 round, but it was designed for the little yellow man in Nam. Something has to be done to improve it. A 62Gr green tip just penetrates deeper that the 55Gr. because 62Gr has a lead and steal core, not just lead. This is so that they will go through the mags that muslimes are wearing on the front of them over their chest. (Russian chest pack)

      Now the 6.8MM has no trouble going through the mags with the 110gr. slug. I like the 6.8mm because I have tested it against the 5.56 round and for me it beats it hands down.

      My favorite is the 7.52X51 (308) out of my M-1A or My Rock LAR. with a 16″ barrel.

The gov pushes this point that they know everything that goes on I call bullshit I don’t care if they have data centers with billions of files who is looking through it all. I have cameras on my house everything goes on a DVR now if anything happens around my place I go through the DVR find the clip put it on a thumb drive and report it to police. I’m not gonna sit and watch the camera 24/7 so there are thing that happen that I don’t know. Now the gov is gonna watch everybody’s every move no way. But we are under increased watch. My point is things can still slip through and do. Our gov is so incompetent I think everything they say is to scare folks into behaving. You won’t get unruly because big brother is watching. IMHO there isnt a damn thing they can do about pissed off citizens coming out against them. If the gov starts killing crowds of angry protesters it justifys the protesters position and supports resistance. I love my country hate the so called leadership. Fucking traitors. Time for talking is over it gets you nowhere. Only strong arm tactics really enact change.

That’s fine with me when It comes down to the personal level I will fight for me and mine. As it looks now it’s every man for himself. With all the law abiding gov has the answer believing folks an uprising is out of the question. Keep gettin fucked without a reach around . So many men don’t have the balls to really do anything just hard talking from behind a gun. Like the guy that throws you the bird because you cut him off. If he was looking you in the eye he wouldn’t tell you to fuck yourself. Coward talking junk and running away . I will look you in the eye and call you a piece of shit I’m not afraid I’ve had my eye opened and opened eyes up to . Men who won’t look you in the eye and give wimpy handshakes are cowards. This is my assessment and most men I’ve met fit this description. I would never fight along side of guys like this. They are weak character. The bosses I’ve seen walk on the same suckers from day 1 when I start a job I don’t take any shit don’t run my mouth or kiss ass either. I use the work situation because this is a social environment where you see all types of people. I’m not saying these guys are bad they are good guys but have no balls to speak up for what they claim to believe in. Things are taken away from them and they just say that’s how it is nowadays so losing things is normal to them. I hate it . Guys used to threaten their bosses and strong arm them and because of it they got fair compensation and respect. Your work don’t respect you one bit. They don’t want to compensate you either. Just like your wife either she wears the pants or you do this is how everything works . Either gov wears the pants or the people do. We the people are like a wolf with no teeth.

    88. JARHEAD Mike-Foxtrot says:

      The argument should be that the proposed ban is ridiculous for the following reasons.

      1. The prohibition against armor piercing handgun ammunition specifically exempted rifle cartridges per those who proposed the bill.

      2. Most centerfire rifle cartridges, that don’t have steel penetrators, will go through soft body armor.

      3. M193, which isn’t banned, and doesn’t have a steel penetrator, will perforate soft body armor. This is the best argument. Another load of the same caliber with a different bullet construction, penetrates as well or better, but isn’t banned.

      4. The military doesn’t designate M855 as armor piercing and maintains AP in the inventory in addition to M855. Per the original SS109 ammo specifications, the bullet was required to penetrate Russian steel helmets at 800m. NO specification for penetrating soft body armor at lesser ranges.

      • Leatherneck says:

        JARHEAD, It would be pure luck if a Marine fire team, shooting non stop all day, would hit a steel helmet at 800 meters. That round is a POS and all Marines know it, green tip or no.

      A 22 caliber long rifle bullet fired out of a 20 inch barrel will probably penetrate a standard bullet resistant vest. Class II and IIA. A 62 grain green tip will not penetrate class IV vest. I’m told class IV will withstand 7.62×51 armor piercing incendiary. There are already laws proposed to prohibit private ownership of vests. So….

      I’ve read on various sites that the government plan is to force all adults to take the vaccine shots from big pharma. Having VA healthcare I always refuse these shots when they are pushed on every visit prior to seeing a doctor. I can see the VA mandating veterans take these shots or lose VA healthcare. I wont take any of their poison shots, ever. There goes my vet healthcare.

        The whole story is that the 2nd, 9th and 10th Amendments shall not be infringed. The rest of our rights and powers will go along.

      Yeah..that’s right you stupid suckers – you don’t need guns. you need silly little toy phones to hold out in front of you 15 hours day so you can pretend that you’re “in touch” and have the slightest f*cking clue what’s really happening in the world, don’t you….
