Shooting and Second Amendment Friends,
The President proposes an ammo ban for 5.56 ball ammo for Sportsmen and gut the second amendment. There is no overarching reason to ban this ammo except to disarm law abiding Americans and the use of rifles such as the AR-15. A ban will leave criminals with banned ammo and create criminals from law abiding citizens. Below is a draft letter that I receive from Hornady Manufacturing which I emailed to ATF.
We have only till March 16 to input to ATF. The reason for this ban is simple. Disarm America and destroy the 2nd Amendment.
Please borrow and send a copy to ATF and tell all your friends that if this ban goes into effect, there is no ammo that the President cannot ban.
Citizens will be disarmed! We will be sheep!

Dear Sir or Madam:
I oppose an ATF ban on 5.56 M855 ball ammunitions.
It has come to my attention that the ATF is seeking public input on a proposed ban on 5.56 M855 ball ammunitions. I am contacting you today, to tell you I solidly oppose this ban.
Law-abiding American citizens have been using 5.56 ball ammunition for sporting purposes for decades, so this legislation appears to be a case of the government arriving at a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist.
Through this proposed ban, ATF disproportionately focuses on how criminals might use sporting ammunition in a handgun. Classifying criminals as a “consumer group” in the ATF’s white paper on this topic is also disturbing, as it further implies that the industry purposely sells firearms and ammunition to this element.
I urge the ATF to permanently drop the proposed ban of 5.56 M855 ball ammunition.
Your Name and Address.
