Svnw688 saidThese bullets are armor piercing and not used for hunting. They have no purpose but to kill police. No reasonable citizens think semi-automatic assault rifles--or their bullets--is protected by the 2nd Amendment.
These green tip bullets got a special exemption because they USED TO BE used mainly by snipers. But now that the general public has them, they're going to lose this special exemption and be regulated--as they should have been all along.
Nobody but the NRA and you are upset. Oh, and criminals with the intent to pierce body armor.
You've and most others have been misled, But I'm sure President Barack Alinsky appreciates your mindless devotion while he manipulates the public using #8, #9, #11, and #12 in the Rules for Radicals. Haven't you noticed that he's creating a different crisis almost everyday, picking fights and doing his best to create conflicts? What's so funny is he has NO HOPE of winning anything with his efforts except creating strife and alienate people on the left even further from people on the right.
All this AR15 mess is pure bullshit just to give erections to the people supporting anything to do with gun control. It's an issue that will not be won by Obama and even if it was you'd have every reason to be pissed at him for misleading you about it.
Let's deal with some AR!% facts...
In spite of what the government, MSNBC and Piers Morgan insisted on reporting, not AR15 was used at Sandy Hook according to FBI and police who found none. No AR15 was used in the Navy Yard shootings but all but one of the news channels reported there was.
Do you want to understand how a ban on AR15s will work out? You only need look at Chicago with it's extensive ban on all firearms for 8 years.
11 year total US deaths in Afghanistan, 2,166 Deaths due to firearms 1,891
8 year total murders in Chicago 4,265
. Deaths due to firearms, 3,871
(you are more than twice as likely to die by gun in Chicago with gun control that in a war zone.)
Number of Chicago murders with all rifles
(including AR15s) 37
That's less than 0.5% of murders.
Number of murders committed in Chicago with guns licensed to users. NONE.
Nationwide only a small fraction of murders are attributed to all rifles.
Successfully banning all rifles (including AR15s) will have less than a 2% effect on gun deaths since 98% of them are committed with handguns. (88% by illegally possessed handguns.) Why the hell isn't he the least bit interested in doing anything bout the illegal guns responsible for 88% of gun deaths? Politics.
If Obama was to succeed in banning AR15s murder rates would not go down and he knows it. He depends on people like you not knowing it and being his tools like you've been posting this thread for him.
Before Obama took office in January 2012 Libertarian radio host Neal Boortz accurately predicted this behavior by the Prez. I'm glad I and others listened to him.
