When a ban on popular AR-15 ammo causes more outrage than mass shootings, we know exactly who is making our laws: The NRA.
February 19, 2015

The NRA-ILA was formed to protect poor gun rights-enthusiasts from laws that restrict an American's god-given right to walk around armed and terrifyingly dangerous. The outrage du jour over the President's audacity to try and protect citizens from a popular armor-piercing bullets used in AR-15s, comes from The Washington Free Beacon and the NRA-ILA working in tandem to stoke fear in the ammosexual crowd. This ammo ban is needed to protect the police, but opponents say President 'Gungrabber' is using executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.

Outrage is growing because that audacious President Obama, along with other gun-sensible groups, are trying to protect Americans from ridiculously lethal ammunition. The legislative arm of the NRA states,

"By way of background, federal law imposed in 1986 prohibits the manufacture, importation, and sale by licensed manufacturers or importers, but not possession, of “a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely . . . from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium.”

The NRA-ILA also explains to its members that there is something they can do about this travesty.

BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) is accepting comments until March 16, 2015 on this indefensible attempt to disrupt ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.

The popular rifle that was used in far too many massacres of innocent American children and adults from all walks of life needs more protection, in case you were worried.

How did this insanity became such a national problem? If you had to venture a guess, which party is the one who's responsible for countless gun-related homicides and accidental deaths? Yes, of course, the Death Party, The G.O.P. has so much blood on their hands. Here's the sordid background:

No amendment received less attention in the courts in the two centuries following the adoption of the Bill of Rights than the Second, except the Third (which dealt with billeting soldiers in private homes). It used to be known as the “lost amendment,” because hardly anyone ever wrote about it. The assertion that the Second Amendment protects a person’s right to own and carry a gun for self-defense, rather than the people’s right to form militias for the common defense, first became a feature of American political and legal discourse in the wake of the Gun Control Act of 1968, and only gained prominence in the nineteen-seventies. A milestone in its development came when Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Ut) , serving on Strom Thurmond’s Senate Judiciary Committee, became chair of the Subcommittee on the Constitution. Hatch commissioned a history of the Second Amendment, resulting in a 1982 report, “The Right to Keep and Bear Arms,” which concluded, “What the Subcommittee on the Constitution uncovered was clear—and long lost—proof that the second amendment to our Constitution was intended as an individual right of the American citizen to keep and carry arms in a peaceful manner, for protection of himself, his family, and his freedoms.”

If you listen to the video, you'll hear countless references to guns and freedom. What about our freedom to walk around without crazy people brandishing a weapon that is designed to KILL? I guess the Second Amendment supersedes our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

This diabolical plot to arm an ever-increasingly, mentally unstable, polarized population is perhaps the biggest plight on our country. Nothing appalls other sensible gun policy-abiding nations more than our sick love-affair with guns. The fact that anyone would feel threatened by a law that limits semi-automatic lethal ammo when there are countless other types of bullets available, just shows the depths of our ammosexuality-disorder.
