GOP Demands Obama Allow Them To Arm White Terrorists With Cop-Killing Bullets (VIDEO)

“Guns don’t kill people, bullets kill people,” the old saying goes. And that’s why the GOP has their uptighty-whities in a bunch. Since our Kenyan Muslim President Barack Obama still can’t take their guns away, he’s signed a treasonous executive order to ban bullets instead. The horror.

Luckily, our Fox-y Newsbot du jour reports that the Republicans in Congress have our backs. 100 of them have signed a strongly-worded letter to Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms (BATF) Director Todd Jones, which declares:

“[The ban] will interfere with Second Amendment rights by disrupting the market for ammunition that law-abiding Americans use for sporting and other legitimate purposes.”

There’s just one problem. Snopes.Com reports — SURPRISE! — there’s very little truth in this story. First of all, Obama did not sign an executive order. The BATF has simply proposed that we reclassify “green-tip” bullets — which are popular with AR-15 users — from “sporting purposes” to “armor piercing ammunition”:

On 13 February 2015, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) released a document [PDF] that proposed the reclassification of “5.56mm constituent projectiles of SS109 and M855 cartridges” from the category of “primarily used for sporting purposes” to that of “armor piercing ammunition.”

That’s right. The BATF wants to reclassify these “green-tip” bullets so they’re harder to get hold of and use to fatally shoot police and military personnel wearing body armor. But, of course, the GOP thinks white terrorists — oops, I mean “responsible” and “law-abiding” gun owners — should keep having easy access to these bullets.

It’s surprising that Republicans wouldn’t want to take all possible measures to protect police, military, border patrols, and others who put their lives on the line every day. They sure seem to support them when they’re murdering brown and black people in cold blood.

If these so-called sports shooters really need assault weapons with armor-piercing bullets for hunting, I sure wouldn’t want to meet any of these animals in a dark alley.

Furthermore, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) tells Fox News:

“We should be worried because the Second Amendment protects the rights of law-abiding citizens to own firearms, and the AR-15 is the most popular sporting rifle. More than five million Americans own them, hundreds of thousands are sold every year. And the president has tried to ban this rifle, but Congress has refused, and now it appears that he’s taking his pen and his cell phone, and through the ATF is trying to ban the second-most popular ammunition that is used in that rifle.”
