ATF pushes bullet ban, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

Once again, the Obama administration is going after guns. He wants to ban the 5.56 round, basically making owning an AR-15 impossible. Sure you can own an AR-15, you just can't have any ammo for it.

Is this the same as the other threads, about the XM855? Or are they actually going to completely ban 5.56?

Also, Fox News.

Cough, cough :M193: cough, cough. The 55-grain stuff was what I carried in Vietnam, and it's still readily available.

This is another duplicate, and this is already under discussion elsewhere.
