The War On Preppers: Obama Bans Ammo For The Most Popular Rifle In America

obama-bans-ar15-bulletsBy Michael Snyder

Because he can’t get Congress to approve the things that he wants to do, Barack Obama has apparently decided to rule by decree for the rest of his time in the White House.  One of Obama’s latest moves is to try to ban some of the most popular ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.  Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15.  That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition.

This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation.  Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly.

Barack Obama has promised to try to squeeze as much “change” as possible out of his last two years, and in the process he is “fundamentally transforming” America.  But what will our country look like when he is done?


At the top of the Drudge Report today, there was a story from the Washington Examiner detailing this ammo ban…

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm 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.

And here is more on this ammo ban from the NRA

As NRA has been reporting since the night the news broke, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is moving to infringe upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners with a drastic reinterpretation of a nearly 30-year-old law regulating so-called “armor piercing” ammunition. So draconian is BATFE’s new “Framework” that it would prohibit the manufacturing, importation, and sale of M855 ball ammunition, one of the most popular cartridges for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15. Not coincidentally, the AR-15 is among the firearms the Obama Administration has unsuccessfully sought to outlaw. If they can’t ban the pie, so the thinking apparently goes, they might at least get the apples.

In an effort to thwart BATFE’s attempted action, NRA has worked with U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to draft a letter to BATFE expressing the lawmakers’ opposition to the proposed Framework. To read a copy of the letter, please click this link.

According to the letter, “The idea that Congress intended [the ‘armor piercing’ ammunition law] to ban one of the preeminent rifle cartridges in use by Americans for legitimate purposes is preposterous.” It goes on to state that the law “should be construed in accordance with the American tradition of lawful firearms ownership, as protected by the Second Amendment.” This includes due consideration of “the many legitimate uses Americans make of their firearms including target practice, hunting, organized and casual competition, training and skills development, and instructional activities.” The letter concludes with several pointed questions for B. Todd Jones, BATFE’s director, including why the agency bypassed the Administrative Procedures Act in proposing such a radical change to its prior interpretation and enforcement of the law.

The crazy thing about all of this is the fact that this ammunition has never met the legal definition of being “armor piercing”.  So what the Obama administration is attempting to do is outside the law.

A recent Infowars article broke this down…

The ATF is trying to ban M855 AR-15 ammunition by declaring it “armor piercing,” despite the ammo containing lead which exempts it from the classification according to law.

To be considered “armor piercing” under 18 U.S.C. 921 (a)(17)(B), a bullet must have an entirely metal core or have a jacket weighting more than 25% of its weight, which wouldn’t include M855 rounds because their bullets are partly lead.

The definition in full:

(17)

(A) The term “ammunition” means ammunition or cartridge cases, primers, bullets, or propellent powder designed for use in any firearm.

(B) The term “armor piercing ammunition” means- (i) a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or (ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.

(C) The term “armor piercing ammunition” does not include shotgun shot required by Federal or State environmental or game regulations for hunting purposes, a frangible projectile designed for target shooting, a projectile which the Attorney General finds is primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes, or any other projectile or projectile core which the Attorney General finds is intended to be used for industrial purposes, including a charge used in an oil and gas well perforating device.

Needless to say, this ban is creating quite a bit of panic among gun owners.

Many gun owners are stocking up on this ammo while they still can

Word of ATF’s proposal sparked a run on ammo at some Springfield gun stores, and steep price spikes for steel-tipped military surplus ammo at some online ammo dealers. Rounds that sold for 25 to 30 cents apiece tripled at some some stores after BATF posted its proposal on its web site.

“We sold out of what we had in stock,” said Ryan Cook, manager of Eagle Armory in Springfield. “We didn’t have a lot in the store but I might have sold four or five cases after ATF’s statement came out. I called our suppliers but they said there was none available to order. It’s like the ammo shortage before. People are going to panic.”

Like I said earlier, even if you are not a gun owner you have got to be extremely concerned about this erosion of our constitutional rights.

We have a man occupying the White House that seems absolutely determined to stretch the limits of presidential power as far as they can possibly go.

And at this point he has become so arrogant that he doesn’t even care if Congress believes that what he is doing is legal.  Just consider what he said during one recent speech

Pres. Obama is daring Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.

Discussing opposition to his executive amnesty orders at an immigration town hall Wednesday, Obama said he would veto the vote because his actions are “the right thing to do”:

So in the short term, if Mr. McConnell, the leader of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, want to have a vote on whether what I’m doing is legal or not, they can have that vote. I will veto that vote, because I’m absolutely confident that what we’re doing is the right thing to do.

This is how republics die.  When one man starts grabbing more and more power and nobody stops him, eventually a dictatorship is born.

This is not what our founding fathers intended.  If they could see us today, they would be rolling over in their graves.

And a lot of Americans are getting fed up.

In fact, according to one recent survey only 47 percent of Americans still believe that Obama loves this country…

While the creepy #ILOVEOBAMA continues to trend on Twitter, fewer than half of American adults, 47 percent, say they believe that the president loves his country.

According to a survey conducted by Huffington Post/YouGov and released this week, a whopping 35 percent of Americans, more than one in three, believe that Obama doesn’t love the United States, while 17 percent said they weren’t sure.

The poll was conducted in the wake of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani telling a gathering in Manhattan that “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”

So what do you think?

Do you believe that what Obama is trying to do is legal?

And do you believe that Obama actually loves this country and everything that it is supposed to stand for?

    More noise to keep the sheeples minds off of diminishing jobs, wages, value of the not federal and no reserves fiat currency and the martial law that is now replacing civil rights and the rule of law. There is also all the aggressive, illegal wars that the feds are running and starting all over the world. Do not look at the bad man sneaking up behind you unzipping his pants, look over here.

    • Yep, and don’t forget Russia and China and their BRIC bank to replace the US dollar as the world currency. I wonder how many Americans realize that our dollar is going to be replaced and what that means for this nation?

      • John C Carleton | February 26, 2015 at 8:51 pm | Reply

        Not many.

        • Agreed. And that very fact is extremely dangerous when SHTF. People need to be prepared and AWAY from cities and metro areas of any size. Just imagine the chaos, the looting, the pillaging, the MARTIAL LAW (and their tactics, shoot-to-kill, FEMA reeducation camps, etc), all of it. I never thought I would see something like this on American soil in my lifetime…

          • True. Anyone leaving the cities is going to have to go on foot if they can – look at how the cables are up on the roads outside all the little towns/cities to control traffic flow. Why else have 10 miles of 3 strand cable preventing someone from changing lanes.going away?

    • None of that matters after you’re disarmed.

  2. Love of country begins with following the oath that he took to protect and defend the Constitution. Unfortunately for America, he has done everything he could to shred the Constitution and our sovereignty. The only word that describes his behavior is TREASON.

        • Ed–How about just a good ole curb stomp, like the one in the movie American History X ?

          • Jim–You sure don’t know anything about the south do you.

          • Ed—Yes i do. Why do you ask ? I have probably lived in more states than you.

          • Wow and you don’t know about stumping!!!!

          • Ed–I said if you can read my post correctly ” How about a good ole curb stomp , like the one in the movie American History X . So what is your complaint about it ?

          • Forgive my ignorance, but what is a “curb stomp?” Even though I live in Texas (central, that is) I’ve never heard of it.

          • kotoc—A curb stomp is where you get a person that you don’t like or hate and you make them lay face down with their mouth open on the edge of a street curb. Then you kick them in the back of the head, therefor breaking their jaw or whatever. Just watch the movie American History X, and you will see what it mean.

          • OUCH!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, that sounds positively like the kind of Evil torture we’re supposed to be against! I wouldn’t even wish that on my worst enemy! This sounds like JIHAD (or ISIS) kind of behavior!

          • I’ve been tempted to punch some a-holes in the face before, but not to THAT extreme. I simply cannot fathom that amount of pain for ME to put onto someone else, no matter how much I hate them….I’d much rather just put a bullet into their head and put them out of my misery.

          • Jim Evans | March 2, 2015 at 5:12 pm |

            LOL ! The last time i punched someone in the face, i used some Brass Knuckles, and every time they look in the mirror, and they see that scar on their face, they will remember me the rest of their life. Just what i wanted. Now don’t get me wrong as i am not really a bad guy, just don’t step on my toes. I guess i learned all of the violence in Vietnam.

    • B’OB thinks that he can make this kind of act stick to keep his trail CYA’d and create diversion…he is close to being disclosed now and if they directly tie him or Holder to these investigations, we are looking at exposure…..

      They will do nothing to LORD OBAMA for he knows he is above the law. Wonder what he is hidng?? Why else would have HIS records sealed unless you have something to hide?? Transparency?? I have never seen a turd that was transparent. And he and Holder and Hillary are SO FULL OF IT. Maybe that is why we are so full of Sh*t??

    • For some reason the video wont play on this machine, but just search “fbi says no one killed at sandy hook” , it was a false flag op all the way.

  3. Note that Executive Orders ARE LEGAL – and IF you are an employee of the federal Executive Branch of govt – then YOU are bound by them. Everyone else in the country? NOT.
    Exec Orders are NOT NATIONALLY BINDING as that is an undeniable law, and ONLY CONGRESS can make laws – not the executive branch, not the courts.

    Ignore the turd as much as possible and stand up when necessary. The Constitution states clearly that “they” (definition here) “rule by the consent of the governed.” i look at it this way and hope you now do: ALL the authority and power that anyone in the govt, police, military, etc believes that they have IS LOANED TO THEM, FROM WE THE PEOPLE, FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF IMPROVING OUR LIVES. When they fail, we have every right to refuse consent to be governed.

    • Has this site become another communist site the free speech is censored??? My previous comment is on hold!!!

      • Did you put in a link? Sometimes they do hold – and communist site? Sometimes i believe that people with intelligent opinions get hacked by NSA or whatever.

        i suspect in this country your issue is not communists, but the fascists currently running business and thus the political whores.

      • That has happened to me also. From a LONG time ago, there’s still one “on hold.”

        I agree with you as I have been warning people about his Martial Law plan for 2 years now and NO ONE for the most part believes he will do it I tell them to PLEASE remove there heads from their butts. He must have something up his sleve and that is why they are only talking about but no charges are being brought up against him. What the HELL are they afraid of?? Anyone one else would have been brought up on charges for lesser offences. And they have. So what gives?? Anyone have a REAL idea of what’s up??

        • Impeaching him would legitimatize his reign. Can’t arrest him and try him for treason because he’s an illegal alien. He could be arrested and deported, but he has given himself amnesty.

        Tried to repost and it is blocked again. Lord Obama must have his people watching us and blocking us..

        • Most sites like this want everyone to be politically correct which i refuse to be. In my opinion, Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. If people would rise up against him, he would declare Martial Law. Obama is our terrorist in the White House.

        • Our Lord was crucified, Hopefully he sees fit for that terrorist in Our white house! This is free speech and you cannot remove our wishes! A communist site! You can’t stop the wishes and prayers of over 3/4 of the nation!!

        Hey, it was 3AM, no announcement of “POLICE!” or anything like that. I thought it was a gang home invasion so I opened up with my Barrett .50 as a line of black-dressed goons was piling through my front door.
        Sorry your honor, I figured they HAD to be criminals because LEOs don’t pull that shyte in civilized nations where rule of law still matters.

  4. THis is hard to take. Ultamately it is our Supreme Court that should be ruling that all the federal mandates and executive orders, as pertains to anything other than the running of the office of the president itself, is illegal, and null and void. Seriously…look at all those martial law rights stripping orders just waiting to be implemented at the drop of a hat when whatever natural or false flag event happens that the Feds should decide to act on.
    To bad we cant have a recall vote for the justices that are not upholding the constitution. Or would it even matter. Today there are still masses of people that think Oboma is great.

    • Judges who overstep their authority.
      “Very simply, impeachment is the recourse when judges attempted to disregard public interests, to affront the will of the people, or to introduce arbitrary power by seizing the role of policy-maker.”
      The United States Supreme Court has clearly, and repeatedly, held that any judge who acts without jurisdiction is engaged in an act of treason. The Congress has the ultimate governmental authority and responsibility to stop judicial abuses of power. Sometimes we need to turn up the heat for them to see the light.
      Hamilton also said, in Federalist 78, pg. *314:
      “Every act of a delegated authority that is contrary to its commission is void.”
      When Congress oversteps its authority, or fails in its responsibilities, it is up to the people to correct the error by replacing those responsible.
      If the Courts or the President are guilty of exceeding their authority it is up to the Congress to place a check on their unconstitutional activity by a number of options including the following:
      •Not funding the issue
      •Setting an exception for the courts, and/or ignoring a ruling**
      •Closing or reducing the size of a particular district court thereby removing the offending judge or judges**
      •Impeachment and removal from office
      If we have representatives who fail to exercise their control over usurpation of unconstitutional powers perpetrated by the other two branches of government – powers delegated to Congress – “We the People” should educate them, and if that fails – replace these legislators.
      Sadly Congress is allowing the separation of powers, and checks and balances to fade into oblivion, and the judges in some cases are acting, “with all the violence of an oppressor,” and are setting public policy.

    • Communist!!!

  5. Look for a Declaration of “Martial Law”,before Jan 2017…

    • America is the stupidest nation on the face of the earth if they let a muslim terrorist and
      a few other communist terrorist in the Administration take our guns. USE THEM FIRST you morons!!!!

  6. MOLON LABE!

  7. Obama’s own words and actions speak to his LACK of love for this country rather just the opposite! He hates this country and the principles on which it was founded and rubs our noses in that at every opportunity!

    Obama acts just like the phony president we believe he is; A dictator in waiting! He should be charged and prosecuted for being the subversive he’s behaving like! Disregard for the Constitution, refusing to secure the borders, refusing to enforce the laws he’s sworn to uphold, protection of ILLEGAL INVADERS (including terrorists) who are occupying this country and his Germ WarFare against us. (Kids invasion without medical screening and handling of the Ebola, crisis his appointments of Communists and muslims who harbor strong anti-American intent)

    • YOU HAVE TO NAME YOUR ENEMY BEFORE YOU CAN DEFEAT THEM !!! Well here a list of Muslims in the Obama adminastration that support the terroist Islamist Jihad .

      Obama,Valerie Jarrett,Brennen,in charge of the CIA, Dalia Mogahed,Douglas J. Hagmann,Rashad HUSSAIN,Azizah al-Hibri,Mohamed Elibiary,Lema Bashir,Dr. Waleed Abdalati,Arif Alikhan,Kareem Shora,Salam al-Marayati,Imam Mohamed Magid,Eboo Patel and last but not least is Mrs. Weiner or Hilliary personal assitant of the Muslim Brotherhood for years.

      These people should also be included, Hillary, Pelosi, Holder,
      the liberals Senators, who have aided and abided this Islamic
      fifth column of the Muslim Brotherhood that have entrenched itself in Washington D,C.

      All are guilty of treason and should be judged accordingly.
      Treason is the crime of betraying the United States by an American citizen. The crime of treason is often described as giving “aid and comfort” to enemies either on U.S. or foreign soil, an act that is punishable by death.

      “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. BUT IT CANNOT SURVIVE TREASON FROM WITHIN. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But THE TRAITOR MOVES AMONGST THOSE WITHIN THE GATE FREELY, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of GOVERNMENT itself. FOR THE TRAITOR APPEARS NOT A TRAITOR; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, HE APPEALS TO THE BASENESS THAT LIES DEEP IN THE HEARTS OF ALL MEN. HE ROTS THE SOUL OF A NATION, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A MURDERER IS LESS TO FEAR. THE TRAITOR IS THE PLAGUE.”

    Fair and balanced people say all U.S. Presidents are the same; a mixture of good and mistaken. Just because you don’t like someone like Mr. Obama, don’t call him “the Antichrist”. They said the same things about Ronald Reagan and so on. Objectively speaking, Mr. Obama never did what Mr. Clinton did, bomb Orthodox Christians in Serbia on Serbian Orthodox Easter. You may not like his policies, but he is still our President and are obliged to pray for him, not to speak evil against him. When we strongly disagree with the behavior of anyone else, we must do so in a sane, unemotional, logical and ethical, charitable and just, rational way. Not use fundamentalist sectarian fanatical language, which is not something that is religious and Christian.

  10. Looks like this traitor is in line for a military takeover, Nicolae Ceausescu style!
    We do not have enough patriots in our congress with the balls to stand up to the jobs they were elected to fill. Their job is to make sure a traitor does not get in the White House and take our country down without ever firing a shot!

    The enemy is ‘in the house’ and it’s time for that change. Ammo and firearms both fall under the “shall not be infringed” second amendment. Hide em & use em when the time comes and it’s getting closer every day!

    When did it become law that the people must follow every illegal law made by the enemy and the enemy has the freedom to trample our Constitution and it’s amendments?
    Do not comply with any of his BS! Time to kick the other Muslims out of our government too!

    • Congress HELPS. It takes BOTH parties to pass their intentionally damaging legislation, and they pass the great majority for the rich at our expense. Now it’s hitting about 15:1.
      That doesn’t happen for 50 years because of an accident or statistical fluke – that is hard work to screw the country for the rich.

      ONLY repubs and demos have had majority control of govt for 160 yrs – so nobody else is to blame.

      They aren’t a “lesser evil” to each other – they ARE the evil. If we get the chance – everyone needs to vote for ANYONE who ISN’T reb/dem.

      Even when it doesn’t put anyone else in office it will state loudly that we are NOT supportive of those adzehulls. Worst case scenario – they have to immediately declare martial law. Better now than in 5 yrs when people are more intimidated!

    • I am with you.

    • Another thing that local, state and the federal government does is the ” Gun Buy Back ” program. It is a legal way for the governments to take your firearms and the people are crazy enough to fall for it. I even wrote a letter to the New york State Attorney General about the exact same thing. Their reply to me was ” Thank You for your recent correspondence to the Attorney General. We appreciate you taking time to make our office aware of your views on gun buy back programs. The Attorney General encourages New Yorkers to remain engaged in the development of public policy, and is always interested in hearing the concerns of those he has the pleasure of serving even if they do not agree with him.” So to me m they are telling me, ” Who cares about what you think about the program. Thank You for reading this.

    • Don’t worry people , when it comes to their lives and family, have being stocking up for this time!! Hopefully ISIS gets him and the slithering snakes in the white house first, like they said they would!

    • This specific ammunition must be used with the rifle, and thus constitutes “arms” definition, as they ( the bullets ) cannot be used without said rifle.

      The Constitution is very very clear on its definition ” shall not be infringed” for mention of right to bear “arms”.

      If all else fails, THEY (the military and LEO use these) are in violation of law for procession.

      • Common Sense—The ammo he wants to ban, if this is indeed true, is the same type of ammo that our military is using. So i guess he wants to just ban the military as well as the way it looks to me. I can’t say on here what i really want to as the Secret Service or FBI would be at my door. Let them knock as i know nothing.

  11. My prayer is for that communist muslim terrorist that is illegally sitting in OUR white house is to die in his sleep!!!

  12. It is so obvious, even to a third grader, that obama 1. is a fraud. 2. is guilty of treason. 3. Is a muslim. 4. Is trying to destroy America. Therefore since The conservatives have the majority in congress. call for the Sargent at arms to arrest obame then try him for all his crimes. During the time his trial is going on also arrest the rest of his administration for the same crimes and reverse everything he has done while in office. Replace him with a good GOD loving conservative and try to correct the damage he has done to the world.

    • if it were only possible most would be all in

      • It is possible and even legal. In fact, it is imperative and our responsibility as loyal citizens of this country to “call for the Sergeant at Arms to arrest (the man of lawlessness) and try him for all his crimes.” The only thing we lack is the will…. sigh.

        • tam the call will never be taken and who would make it that anyone would listen. i wish u were really right but our reps only care about them selfs and the ones that might like reps like tray gawouty or ted cruz are busy running for office and trying to get the irs off our back for good the rest are just going along to get along a shame but the truth

        • Yes this is quite correct and can be
          accomplished by the people. All of us have to work together. We must send
          emails and call our representatives. We must stage protests across the country
          in every state at every State House, and at the White House. The liberals have
          used this for decades with great success. Now it is our turn. We need to enlist
          all the government employs we can to have sick out, this must be done all at the same
          time and continued until our demands are met!!!

          GET THE PICTURE it takes people with backbone and enough balls to continue too
          the end!!!

          Anyone that agrees, send a post to me. I am more than willing to work for this
          goal. I live in Colorado and in Colorado we have a lot of work to do because
          the communists elected a communist Governor.

        Sure it has balls. Shame they are split up between Obama, Holder, Clinton and the rest one or two is left for us. We are so blessed. Surprised they even left us them.

    • your forgetting one thing, even the right is part guilty of what he is doing, they just pretend they are fighting him, I think they are in on it also to some degree, Because if they where not he would of been impeached by now.. sadly its going to come down to the American people to fight and keep our country just like they did in 1776, 1812, and all the other times someone tried to take our country from us.

  13. “The right to bear arms shall not be infringed.” Seems pretty straightforward to me.

      That only works for Obama and his S.S. and those on the Hill. You know they will make sure they still have the right to carry and screw the rest of us.

  14. Executive Orders, prior to this POTUS, have always had the backing of some Federal statute behind them.

    Their intention is only to supplement (clarify) existing law so the executive branch can “faithfully execute” their enumerated powers under the Constitution.

    What Obama has done is an abomination. It’s a very gross overreach that unless it goes un-challenged, sets a very, very dangerous precedent for every POTUS after him.

    It’s the actions of a dictator.

    Congress does have the power to impeach if they’d only muster up the courage to do it. Obama has deserved, in fact invited (dared), this action many times over.

  15. NRA must be running low on money. Needs to send out a scare.

    This O’dumass using the different departments EPA/BLM/IRS/BATF to help destroy America. These people working in these depts. are NOT Americans, I call them traitors or have sold they’re souls! The Constitution/Bill of Rights Comes First! Period.

    • Anybody in the POTUS administration has sold their soul. Otherwise they would be patting Rudy Giuliani on the back for his assessment of Obama’s lack of love for our country. Keep in mind that this is OUR country, not Obama’s.

  17. Why, why, why, is this man still President????

  18. America is “Failed”. There can be NO freedom,No opportunity,No present,No future,No unalienable,G-D given rights where there is no Law and those sworn by oath to defend it are in fact complicit in Tyranny.

    “Checks and Balances” the fail-safe created by the Founders and Framers gives ALL three branches of government the power to make sure that No one,No individual or group of tyrants can.could pass ANY law,any legislation,usurp their “limited” powers.No one thought about what could happen if all three branches(executive,Judicial and Legislative) uniformly betrayed their sworn oath,their duty,the only reason they exist which reads “By the people”,”For the People”,”Of the people” which No longer exists!

    It’s called Tyranny,It’s called “dictatorship”.it’s called “high crimes and misdemeanors”,impeachable offense by anyone who would commit them without any deals,without mercy,backed by the most severe punishment allowed by law and ENFORCED by those paid by the people,elected and or appointed by the people,sworn to serve the people who BETRAY the people as opposed to the ONLY reason they exist!

    The American Dream has turned into a Nightmare for most as a virulent cancer has metastasized to stage 4. Stage 4 is mostly incurable if left to grow without the necessary,most drastic measures available to “kill” it,to cure it,to eliminate it BEFORE it’s too late!

    Obama and the corrupt political system,the corrupt electoral system,the “failure” of America to address and destroy 6 decades of cancer has come home to roost.

    The people,you,me,all of the people Must stand against tyranny or does 50 million on food stamps,millions and millions without jobs or underemployed,an economy that no longer can create enough jobs, a bankrupt country $18 trillion in debt without any means to pay even the debt service led by a pathological liar,a narcissist,a Constitutional criminal, a tyrant,a demagogue END a country where “anything” was possible UNTIL NOW?

  19. I really hate to write this, but it does appear as though the POTUS wants to make the American citizen defenseless. If he can’t take the weapons then take the ammunition so as to make them useless. This is what our founding fathers had in mind when they were writing up the founding documents to keep our country and us free. That is what the 2nd amendment is for. You don’t think that with their experience with the old overseas country that they may have envisioned the possibility of this happening some day in the future ??

  21. OBAMA is MUSLIM and being MUSLIM OBAMA hates everything including HIS WHITE HALF.!! And OBAMA will do and is doing all he can to destroy the USA and IT’S FREEDOMS. One thing to ensure the safe DICTATORIAL TAKE OVER IS TO DISARM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE which OBAMA WILL DO WITH HIS PEN,PHONE and PHONY EXECUTIVE ORDERS because no one in the SENATE and CONGRESS HAVE THE BALLS TO STOP THE MUSLIM DICTATOR POSING AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.!!

  22. Little by litlel the 2nd amendment slips away. Learning from the anti abortion people they will prevail. For example in my county abortion is legal but unavailable. Same thing is coming with guns and ammunition. This ban is a perfect example. Oh well ,just one type of ammunition. Then another and then might as well get the rifle as there is no more ammuntiion. Sadly only about 10% of gun owners belong to any oranization. Hard to fight the media and the gov’t without lots of muscle and cash.

  23. America went to war with England, when the King tried taking our guns, what Obama has done should send a red flag nation wide to all gun owners and the treat to the Constitution of the people, if you have not yet become a N.R.A. member and help the N.R.A. fight this Communists in the oval office, who has become a dictator who rules by proxy, then your voice cannot be heard. Banning ammunition by proxy without going through Congress has once again put the Constitution into a crisis. Revolution is coming when you try to interpret your own agenda on a free self Governing people Barack Obama.

  24. He’s going to do as much harm to our country as he can until his time runs out.Impeached or term runs out.HOPEFULLY AMERICA will last longer than he does.Maybe the DUMBOCRATS will wake up and and help the patriots vote the liberal,socialist,communists out,WAY,WAY,out.

    • It would be really tough to convince more than 50% of the population to give up their protesting and fishing, food stamps, monthly welfare/disability, health care, and cell phones to help the Patriots get rid of this POS. We don’t stand a chance!

  25. In spite of what the NRA says (don’t ever forget that they have been lying for years), AR15 have no civilian use. They are a military and police weapon. PERIOD!!!!! “A well REGULATED Militia…” The 2nd Amendment was written over 200 years ago for members of Militias as they existed back then. The 2nd Amendment was never intended for “civilians”. Two hundred + years ago, because they had no standing Army and depended on Militias for the security of the new country. Members back then were “citizen soldiers”, “Minute Men”. They had to be ready to go at a moment’s notice. So, the 2nd Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights so that their weapons were loaded and ready to go, at a moments notice. The NRA has changed the 2nd Amendment to fit their and all gun manufacturers needs.

  26. it only takes one obama.

    The ATF cannot make any law just as the NRA cannot cancel any or make any so you see this CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IS CURRUPT

  28. We need too start impeachment procedeings against Obama NOW!!

  29. This new lawless move indicates an impending, planned “event” that will prompt patriots to need ammo… I wonder when we will have had enough illegal activity from this counterfeit president?

    Don’t you people realize that Obamas’ whole agenda from the start was to totally destroy this country? That’s what his “fundamental change” is all about. He does not want us to be oil independent! He does not want us to have jobs! He does not want us to succeed in anything!

    Since he has been in office he has ignored, bypassed and flat out disobeyed our constitution! He added 17 TRILLION dollars to our debt. He crammed Obamacare down our throats He makes laws that are illegal. He uses the power of the presidency to bully, intimidate and prosecute anyone who disagrees with his policies. How long will we let this go on?

    He was brought up to hate America and all it stands for. I am totally against him. I am an American and proud of it. I guess that makes me a racist. I believe in the tea party and what it stands for. Smaller government and obey our constitution. So now I’m a domestic terrorist too. So be it. Call me what you want. I love this country as it was so I call myself a patriot.

  32. Hi!, Patrons Of Activist Post Et. Al.:
    We the people can heap all the blame on Obama we want within the limits of OUR Constitution but, however, who elected this man that everyone has to put up with his antics in the first place? As my mom taught me gently years ago, when we point a finger at someone, we should remember to look at the 3 fingers pointed back at ourselves. This is not said in any way to validate nor indorse OUR President but to point out who is responsible for his being in office; so that he enables himself to attempt stealth executive orders. A good question to think over too is do we want illegal aliens brought into OUR country, upon the inept premise that politicians can thus buy their votes; while the illegals do not love the principals of OUR country but only the benefits for which we the people are called upon to pay, pay and pay more and more? What has happened to honesty, liberty and justice for all in its’ real meaning for we the people who pay the bills around this country? Demeaning maneuvers which undermine what should be the true motives of OUR elected officials are a slap in the face to those who founded OUR country and a slap in the face to all those who are attempting to maintain its’ overall integrity/image at home and abroad. We have been in the past instrumental in booting out many nations’ dictators and we are certainly able to boot out anyone including someone posing as OUR President but who otherwise can not keep their vows when they are sworn to uphold OUR Constitution Of These United States Of America for the benefits of we the people and not exclusively for their own clandestine agendas can we not? As my deceased mentor from Holland taught me many years ago: “Russ, TRUTH is the daughter of time; as all TRUTH is discovered in the coarse of time!” It can not be too far afield can it when we the people will declare to anyone posing as OUR President but not playing the Constitutional role, for which he declares himself to be responsible in swearing to uphold OUR Constitution, that we affirm to ourselves and each other to that imposter: “YOUR TIME IS UP!!?” We are given two honest and respectable avenues by which to repeal that persons’ tenor of office; either via the ballot box or impeachment are we not but will we choose to take the pro active initiative to get OUR job as citizens accomplished as a done deal, in order to save OUR Republic from destruction from within via booting out of office the imposter parasite?

    I see that all of you paranoid schizophrenics are still flushing your meds!

  34. TAKE OURS GUNS MEANS THE NEXT STEP IS TO TAKE OUR LIBERTY AWAY

  35. First of all, Show me the FBI data on how many M855 have been used in US homicides since the 1970’s when they began selling them vs. the amount of M855 in hills of dirt across the US that have been shot by responsible, patriotic, US citizens engaged in the time-honored art of shooting.
    The American people are the 4th Branch of Government and the Last Line of Defense and we have the right the power and the authority
    under the Constitution to own as much of this ammo as we feel we need. Not just for hunting but to protect our homes, our neighbors our communities and our cities and states and our Nation. We have the Constitutional Birth right protect and defend against all enimies foreign and domestic especially when those we entrusted to protect and defend have gone to bed with the enemy, are violating their Sworn Oaths Article 6 Section 3 to which they are bound and committing acts of open sedition and treason at levels so unprecidented its not funny.
    Constitution is clear on many levels:
    YOU are not a LAW making power you just cannot say we are going to do this and its law……..
    Even if Obama were legit and he is NOT (Proven and Validated by many sources just being Criminally ignored) the Constitution is clear:
    Neither the President nor Congress nor the Senate nor the Supreme Court nor the Federal Courts nor the States nor their Govenors and Mayors not even you ATF….even through Laws Bills Amendments Mandates and yes even through Treaties you still DO NOT possess the power or the authority to USURP the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or our Sovereignty…… you do not have it! This govenment is Criminally De Facto.
    Constitution is also clear: Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 of the Origional 1776 Pennsylvania Constitution not the Criminally and illegally re written USA CORPORATION Constitution illegally created by King George and his WHORES in the 41st Congress 1871 and forced upon the people without their KNOWLEDGE and without their CONSENT……
    Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 basically states As long as a FRAUD USURPS the office of President Congress and the Senate can make and pass
    no laws and if they do all they do is Null and void nor does the Senate possess the power to Ratify! As long as a fraud USURPS the Office of President our Government is Dead in the Water. Here it is for your edimication:
    The Origional Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 ……………. Of the Origional Pennsylvania 1776 Constitution NOT the re written USA CORPORATION Constitution 1871!!
    Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 ……………. Of the Constitution
    No laws of Congress are valid
    “Congress can pass no law while a usurper pretends to occupy “the Office of President. ”The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States
    ” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to a usurper posturing as “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper, Congress will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.””
    Furthermore, Obama Could not be Removed Except by Force. As a USURPER posturing as “the President,” Congress cannot even impeach Obama because, not being the actual President, he cannot be “removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” (see Article II, Section 4). In that case, some other public officials would have to arrest him—with physical force, if he would not go along quietly—in order to prevent him from continuing his imposture. Obviously, this could possibly lead to armed conflicts within the General Government itself, or among the States and the people.
    ALSO, Bear in mind, that as an imposter Commander–in-Chief of the Armed Forces, “he will be entitled to no obedience whatsoever from anyone in those Armed forces and Law Enforcment. Indeed, for officers or men to follow any of his purported “orders” including law enforcement will constitute a serious breach of military discipline—and in extreme circumstances even charged with “war crimes.” In addition, no one in any civilian agency in the Executive Branch of the General Government will be required to put into effect any of Obama’s purported “proclamations,” “executive orders,” or “directives” (Viera, J.).

  36. The bum needs to be removed from office at all costs.

  37. Congress makes the laws. It didn’t agree. Ergo, this POS is acting outside his authority and what can he do if everyone just ignored him?
    His accusers are right. This ersatz president has NO love for America.

  38. THAT MEANS THAT THE ARMY CAN NO LONGER GET THIS AMMO FOR THEIR AUTOMATIC WEAPONS! GREAT COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE PIG PEN’S!

  39. So the companies manufacturing Ammo will slow because there is no profit. The feds will demand the Ammo be made for the Military and Cops The prices will spike massive shortages The Taxpayer will again have to pay. Another industry destroyed. They can check that off their list

Firing squad is cheaper..Good chance to try out the latest hardballs.. I wish I didn’t believe he is trying to take us down but the facts speak for themselves.

  42. The invalid WH fraud is a unilateral, fiat whizz and if this IRS usurpation of rights can be pinned on him then his time is up…..A major injunction by the NRA and others can push this into the courts and a stay can be used to keep this ammo intrusion and travesty at bay…….Use your internet to write all those who represent you and make them know you want this stopped…

  43. This Muslim in office we call President or Commander-in-Chief is trying to bring the US to its knees. The power of the pen has gone to his head. The AR-15 is also chosen as a home defense weapon. He wants to disarm America so we are left defenseless. The man does not love America! He does however love Islam. He embraces the ideology of Islam. What better way to promote Radical Islam in this country than taking away our weapons or the ammunition for our weapons. We should wake up and see what Obama is doing. If I could proclaim to the world the US’s greatest threat to our republic I would scream out “Our President is our greatest threat”. Obama is NOT a patriot. He is even telling the world he is sorry for all the bad the US has done around the world. I find it quite sad that the voters feared putting a Mormon in the Whitehouse yet they ended up putting Radical Leftist Liberal Socialist Muslim in the Whitehouse instead. How do you like the change now America? Is Obama giving you all you dreamed for?

  44. We need to ban traitors like him from being able to be here in the USA.

  45. The only love that Obama has for America is the Stealing of it’s Power and the Destruction of the Constitution & Bill of Rights! He does love the idea and thought of becoming the first Tyrant or Dictator of America! He does love to tear down what so many have built and so many have died to protect! He does love to Lie to the American People and he does love to leave the Boarders wide open for anyone to come right on in and do as they please! But does he Actually Love America for what it was? Hell No he doesn’t and what he is doing is totally illegal!

  46. Govenor Rick Perry, said in his speak at CPAC we, will survive Obama, I, am not so sure. I, sure hope he is right.

  48. It is clear that the laws of this nation no longer matter to the government or any of their criminal sud divisions therefore THE LAWS OF THIS NATION NO LONGER APPLY TO THE PEOPLE. this was once a nation of laws, but that is no longer the truth. Thus if the laws of this nation no longer apply to those in government they no longer apply to the people of this nation. If the worthless turd in the white house is not bound by the laws of this nation then there is no law that stops the people from going after the criminals in D.C.

  52. Obama stated that he was banning this ammo because it can penetrate Kevlar bullet proof vests which put police in danger. He has no care for local police. He is preparing for his national police martial law to protect them as they see fit to kill Americans.

  53. So Obama wants to ban the ammo which is for the Ar-15 or M-16 which takes a 223 caliber . So if Obama would succeed with this which he won’t, it would devastate our military as that is the ammo they use. Of course, i don’t put nothing past Obama the idiot that he is.

  54. I do not think he is turning into a DICTATOR I think he is one already the way he is acting and talking.

  55. Obama is a deceiver and a liar. He wants to control the American people!

  56. I’m sick and tired of this SOB going round congress just to get what HE wants.
