The Washington Examiner on Thursday reported that President Obama, through the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is attempting to effect gun control by putting on the fast track a ban on AR-15 ammunition.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called the ammo ban “less honest” than a straight-out gun ban.
