“Any 5.56 round” is “a challenge for officer safety,” he said. Jones asked lawmakers to help in a review of a 1986 bill written to protect police from so-called “cop killer” rounds that largely exempted rifle ammo like the 5.56 because it has been used by target shooters, not criminals.
New worries. Oh Boy.
Preaching to the choir of course, as none of them read this site certainly – but a ban on M855/5.56, becomes precedent to ban any center-fire carteridge. Bet on it. Bet the farm on it. That is what is going to come if they rule-make in this fashion.
So, what to do. Well, I donno. You can comment – see other links for that and certainly do. You can write your representatives – but with rare exception, they do little. Both options, in this fight, are what must be done nonetheless. But what else. Again, I don’t know.
I do know doing something is better than doing nothing. That, is why I say if you have any accessibility to your local political fixtures, senators, representatives, commissioners, mayors, and on and on: start a discussion. They are interested. They will listen to you. Well, at least here in the panhandle of Florida.
Engage with your representatives.
