It's official. Barack Hussein Obama has declared himself a dictator. Earlier today he announced that he had "expanded his authorities" and then taunted Congress saying he would veto any congressional attempts to curb his newly announced powers.
He is a living, breathing dictator.
The ammunition he is banning is the popular 5.56 round used in AR-15 rifles as well as many other big-game hunting rifles.
Like hunting deer? Hogs? Our dictator has just declared it illegal.
From Washington Examiner:
As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56 mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.
Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.
The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that 30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.
"The Obama administration was unable to ban America's most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it's trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group's policy and lobby shop. "The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama's latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms."
At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.
The inexpensive 5.56 M885 ammo, commonly called green tips, have been exempt for years, as have higher-caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police, because it’s mostly used by target shooters, not criminals. The agency proposes to reclassify it as armor-piercing and not exempt.

But now BATFE says that since the bullets can be used in semi-automatic handguns they pose a threat to police and must be banned from production, sale and use. But, as Goodlatte noted, the agency offered no proof. Federal agencies will still be allowed to buy the ammo.
“This round is amongst the most commonly used in the most popular rifle design in America, the AR-15. Millions upon millions of M855 rounds have been sold and used in the U.S., yet ATF has not even alleged — much less offered evidence — that even one such round has ever been fired from a handgun at a police officer,” said Goodlatte’s letter.
In a 2007 press conference, President GW Bush predicted exactly what would happen if the next president abandoned Iraq too early. In 2009, Barack Obama pulled all American combat troops from Iraq and Bush's prediction became a reality. ISIS. To say that Obama has let the world down is a severe understatement.

In a display that looks more like a presidential motorcade than a tawdry lot of terrorists, ISIS paraded through the streets of Benghazi, Libya yesterday. The person who filmed the video as it happened asks a simple and poignant question: How does a rag-tag group of terrorists get the money and resources to purchase and maintain [...]

I also think you have a reputation (or you’d like to think you have a reputation) as someone who isn’t afraid to “tell it like [...]
Liberal Atheist Darling Penn Jillette just said something shocking that will rock most American liberals to their core. He said that Christians are better, more peaceful, and contribute to society more than Muslims. (And they don't contribute bombs and suicide bombers) Did you hear that Rosie O'Donnell and you other brain dead liberals out there? First Bill [...]

Texas is known for its concealed carry laws. Just about any law abiding citizen who can aim a pistol can get a permit, and for one restaurant in Houston, the law allowing good guys to carry guns saved several lives. In thwarting a mass-shooting, the Texas concealed carry law has proven its worth. Houston: K&S Seafood Bar [...]
There are conspiracy theories about Obama... and then there are CONSPIRACY THEORIES. You'll never believe what Rev.

New York pastor James David Manning warned recently [...]
Zero tolerance policies at public schools have become "Zero Common Sense". One school has a rule that a shaved head means automatic suspension because it is "gang related" (presumably skin heads), however when a cancer patient shaves his head, the punishment is given without regard to circumstance. Are we really going to stand by and let [...]
