Congratulations! Gun owners around the country allowed their voice to be heard and the proposed ban of the green tip 5.56 ammo has been withdrawn for the time being. Seeing the overwhelming opposition to the proposed ban, the government agency has put it on the shelf. While that is outstanding news, the truth is it doesn’t belong on the shelf; it belongs in the trash can.
I am no huge fan of the green tip ammo, I think that for most applications, there are far more useful rounds out there. However, the abundance of the green tip ammo on the market makes it a juicy target for politicians to enact strict gun control without banning guns. The ATF’s own language, “indefinitely shelve”, lets you know that they reserve the right to bring it back up at any time. Indeed many liberal politicians are already encouraging them to do so.
So the message I hope to convey is, Don’t let up. Make sure you continue to let your congressmen know how you feel, support the NRA and their efforts to protect our rights, and when the time comes, vote your conscience. If you fail to do so, the people who want to disarm you will take advantage of your complacency. Don’t let them mistake silence for consent.
