To hear the Obama administration talk about the need to ban a very common ammunition in order to “save police lives”, would lead one to think that this administration actually cares about cops lives. But, when looking at other actions regarding law enforcement by the Obama administration, this move to ban ammo to “protect law enforcement” seems very counter to their past acts.
The ammo that the administration is trying to ban, M855 “green tip”, or SS109 5.56mm rifle ammo has been available to the public for a very long time. This ammo has a mild steel tip but is in fact not designed as “armor piercing” ammunition, nor does it qualify as “armor piercing” as laid out in the law that banned armor piercing ammo [18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(17)(B) and (C)]
This ammo, that the Obama administration has to ban for the sake of law enforcement, is so horribly evil that James Pasco, executive director of the Washington office of the Fraternal Order of Police, said this about it: “While this round will penetrate soft body armor, it has not historically posed a threat to law enforcement.” And this: “Any ammunition is of concern to police in the wrong hands, but this specific round has historically not posed a law enforcement problem,”
Obama loves the cops so much, and is banning this ammo just to protect them. Obama has repeatedly shown his love for law enforcement, since taking office, by:
– publicly commenting about how the cops “acted stupidly”
– accusing law enforcement nationwide of racial prejudices and corruption
– by sending representatives to the funerals of criminals who were killed in self-defense
– by sending representatives to the funerals of violent criminals killed by law enforcement
– by publicly stating that he stands with the mothers of said slain criminals
– by ginning up the anti-cop rhetoric so that an entire city suffers from riots, for weeks and months
Obama further shows his deep concern for cops by:
– NOT sending representatives to the funerals of slain cops, including a cop killed by an illegal immigrant who is allowed to stay here in the country thanks to Obama’s end run around the immigration laws
– NOT sending representatives to the unveiling of a memorial of a slain border patrol agent who was killed using guns smuggled by Obama’s very own “justice” department.
Yes, Obama clearly loves us cops, and is so concerned with our well being that it is necessary to ban this rifle ammunition. Obama loves law enforcement like a wife beater loves their spouse…
OR, could it just be that Obama is once again lying to the public and all the useful idiots out there to try and ban some very popular ammo for AR based rifles, the rifle he loves to hate? You tell me which is more likely the real reason. In my book, actions speak louder than words, and Obama has spoken volumes.
