    ATF "tactically retreats" (TEMPORARILY) on AR-15 ammo ban !!!!

    They've "tactically retreated" for the time being. Keep the pressure up through whatever organization/s or your elected reps. The whole story.

    Great news and evidence that the political process still works and should be used.

    Clearly, at the very least, the rule making authority of the BATFE needs to be legislatively eliminated. No more judgment calls on what guns and ammo are permissible made by an agency with a long history of overt hostility to our RKBA.

    Here was my take on the situation, including a request for LACs to continue the pressure on their legislature.

    But it ain't necessarily over yet. See:

    ATF admits: Officials still considering ammo ban, looking at ‘how we do this rationally’

    Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Director B. Todd Jones told the Senate on Thursday that it has not given up its effort to create a framework for deciding which ammunition might have to be banned in the United States, and said his agency would reassess how to do that after it reads tens of thousands of comments it received over the last few weeks.

    The ATF’s Ammo Ban Is Back…in the Form of a New Bill From Democrats
    Mar. 16, 2015 10:37am

    Four House Democrats have taken the Obama administration’s idea of a regulation to ban a widely used kind of ammunition — one it had to pull back because it was so unpopular — and turned it into legislation.

    Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) introduced the Armor Piercing Bullets Act, which he said would ban the sale of “.223-dervied, 5.56x45mm NATO ‘green tip’ rounds” that are commonly used on the AR-15 rifle. That’s the same ban that the ATF proposed in February, through the adoption of a “framework” that would justify a ban on all bullets that can pierce police body armor.

    This bill will hopefully go nowhere in the House.
