Congressional Pushback Shoots Down BATFE Bullet Ban Proposal
BATFE announces it will not proceed with new rule on AR-15 rifle ammunition
Today, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) announced the agency will not proceed with a proposed rule to ban a popular form of rifle ammunition.
I, and hundreds of my Capitol Hill colleagues, stood up against this assault on the Second Amendment. The ATF listened to us and the 80,000 Americans who took the time to comment on this wrongheaded proposal that revealed just how far this White House was willing to go to attack our constitutional rights. This was way out of step with reality and I’m glad it’s over.
