Judicial Watch Sues ATF for Records About Obama Attempt to Restrict AR-15 Ammunition

Judicial Watch announced that it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), a component of the Department of Justice, for 1,900 pages of records about a proposed reclassification that would effectively ban certain types of AR-15 ammunition as armor-piercing (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02218)).

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to a May 14, 2018, FOIA request for the 1,900 documents about the Obama administration’s AR-15 ammo ban efforts. The documents include ATF talking points about the “Armor Piercing Ammunition Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” and other records discussing ammunition classification.

The lawsuit is the latest development in Judicial Watch’s more than three-year effort to obtain documents from the ATF. Judicial Watch discovered the document cache in separate litigation on the ammo ban issue.

“Simply put, the ATF refuses to comply with federal open records law,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “The ATF has withheld records for over three years concerning the Obama administration’s shady attempt to institute gun control by restricting ammunition instead of guns.”

Make your own armor piercing ammo.
Imagine the look on their faces as 20 rounds turn them into hamburger.
EVERY gun I have is equipped with them.
Every gun I have is loaded and within an arms length or a couple of steps away. Dogs and infared scopes and night vision make sure I get the first shot. I highly recommend all of it.
The law?? Its overruled by the King of Law --- the Constitution.
"We, the people" OWN this country, we run it, and we tell these slime losers what to do.
They just don't listen any more.
It's their BREATHING that needs to be cut off. If someone slips and gets an ear or two, well they don't listen anyway, so no big deal.
Keep cheering.
I'm thinking that in 2-3 years, we are going to be separating the men from the pink and blue haired cross-dressing, big mouth sissies who only start trouble when there is 20 against two. That will probably become a national holiday..
What they are doing is called "biting off more than you can chew".
They WILL choke on it.
