“The President tried to ban the most popular rifle in America but he couldn’t get it through Congress so now he’s trying to ban the ammunition for the most popular rifle,” Cox said.”It’s interesting that they’re lying on this because there’s no national cop group that’s calling for this ban. The head of the National Fraternal Order of Police said that this wasn’t necessary. The reason it’s necessary is not one police officer has died a result of vest penetration from one of these rounds being fired from a handgun in the last 30 years, since ATF exempted this ammo. So why are they doing it? This is a solution not to a problem, it’s a solution to Barack Obama’s gun control problem. He couldn’t get it through Congress so he’d doing it backdoor.”
