Chuck Woolery: Proposed ammo ban will eventually leave us stuck #FightingWithRocks

News that the Obama administration is looking to ban ammunition for the popular AR-15 semiautomatic rifle via executive action is leaking out slowly but surely. Gov. Bobby Jindal addressed the plan Thursday night in a tweet calling the proposed ammo ban the same as a gun ban but less honest.

We’re still finding it hard to believe an executive ban on ammunition is really in the works. Earlier this week, Forbes’ Frank Miniter explained the basis of the ban, which reaches back to the ’60s.

The law at the basis of this debate is the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA). As amended, the GCA prohibits the import, manufacture and distribution of “armor piercing ammunition” as defined by a few terms Attorney General Eric Holder’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is attempting to broaden.

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.

Like Jindal, TV host Chuck Woolery has taken on the ban with a tweet, predicting that we’ll soon be left with nothing but rocks as weapons.
