On March 10, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) withdrew their proposed ban on popular ammo commonly used in AR-15’s. The bureau cited over 80,000 public comments that were vastly negative. Last week U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis joined 236 of her House colleagues to send a letter to the ATF condemning and questioning the ban and 53 Senators joined in this week, sending a letter of their own in opposition.
“When over 230 Representatives are joined by 53 Senators writing in opposition to a rule along with nearly 80,000 negative comments from the public, you know you’ve got a bad rule rolling,” said Rep. Lummis. “While I am pleased the ATF shelved their proposed ammo ban for now, I am appalled they ever proposed it and are still considering it. I remain wary and will fight this and any further attempts by federal agencies to limit or restrict Americans’ constitutionally guaranteed 2nd Amendment rights.”
