Hudson Introduces Amendment to Stop Bullet Ban
WASHINGTON, D.C.– Last night, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) introduced an amendment to stop the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) from banning AR-15 “green tip” ammunition commonly used by law-abiding sportsmen:
“This amendment is a strong first step to reduce the ATF’s threat to our Second Amendment and protect our right to keep and bear arms. I will continue to fight against this bullet ban and any overreaching regulations that would prevent us from responsibly exercising our Second Amendment rights.”
To push his gun control agenda, President Obama and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) unilaterally considered a new framework that expanded the armor piercing ammunition ban to include the M855 AR-15 round. It was only after receiving intense pressure from Congress and more than 80,000 public comments that the administration stalled their proposed ban, but quietly left the door open to consider future ammunition bans.
Rep. Hudson’s amendment to ban funds from being used to reclassify M855 or SS109 type ammunition as armor piercing was adopted to H.R. 2578, theCommerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Act.
