The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is taking public comments on its website until December 31, with regard to how it should determine what types of projectiles meet the "sporting purposes" exception to the federal "armor piercing ammunition" law. At this time, the question centers primarily around rifle-caliber projectiles made of metals harder than lead, such as the Barnes Bullets solid brass hunting bullets.

Hmmmmm a ban on harder than lead by BATF regulators combined a ban on lead projectiles by the EPA should help them reach the Administration's goal of an unarmed society.

Exactly, comply with lead-free regulations which have already been passed, and now you are violating AP ammo regulations. Well played ATF, well played.

Why does the ATF get to regulate the 2A with a term called "sporting purposes"?. The 2A is not about sport. Even the SCOTUS has ruled on that.

Bullets of gold. That would meet the goals of those who want ammo expensive.

I have read the 2nd Amendment over and over again. Can someone point me to the part that says anything about "Sporting Purposes"? ......Sarcasm.

It's right there next to the word "muskets". (More sarcasm)
