From Fox:

ATF shelves controversial bullet ban proposal


The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is shelving a controversial proposal to ban a popular type of bullet, amid opposition from hundreds of congressional lawmakers.

The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue the final guidelines "at this time." The proposal pertained to M855 "green tip" ammunition, used in the AR-15 rifle; regulators looked at banning it because can pierce police body armor.

The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue final guidelines "at this time." The agency said it will instead wait until Americans have finished commenting on the federal regulations and evaluate their comments and suggestions before "proceeding with any framework."

The statement follows 52 senators and 238 House members joining in opposition to any attempt the Obama administration might make to ban the ammo.

"ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework," the agency said Tuesday. "The issues raised (so far) in the comments ATF has received to date will require further consideration, and fully processing all of the comments will take time. Given the overwhelming interest in this issue, and the issues raised in the comments received so far, ATF will not at this time issue a final framework."

So if I am reading this right, they won't issue a decision until the comment period is over?

Is this a "non-announcement" or am I reading into this too much?

Obviously this is a good sign as they are at least acknowledging the backlash against the ruling.

That being said, I don't think we are even close to being able to celebrate victory on this one.

I think I will send them another letter...

That's the way I see it too Mr. Moon. They are waiting to comment until the period is over ... kind of like they said last week.

But wait, wasn't this just a misprint? . To me a misprint is a misspelling, repeat of a page, or the omission of words. Not a formed paragraph banning a cartridge.

Mr. Moon, like you, I sent another letter through a local gun shops website. (By sending the letter, they also enter you into a giveaway of M885!)

"Although ATF endeavored to create a proposal that reflected a good faith..."

Remember the Chief Dan George, the indian with oppositional defiant disorder in 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'?

"We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union.

Ok. So this goes on the back burner for now. Now we have to gin up efforts over the arm brace brouhaha. Let's get on the offensive.

Our enemies will never rest and neither should we.

Eternal vigilance.

My translation; "Since saying what we want to do kicked up so much BS, we arnt gonna do anything. Yet. But after the comment period is closed, and Barry tells our Director privately to do the damn job he hired him for, we'll slide it into the Federal Register under cover of darkness some Friday. And you gun-loving peckerwoods can all go pound sand."
Q) why does the guvmint hate the Mafia so? A) Cuz they hate competition. And they can't stand the fact we have them out gunned RIGHT NOW, except for all the cool military toys they have access to.
The real question is, do the Statist commies believe this kind of crap will stand without triggering Civil War II? Malloy isn't going after non compliant AR owners in Conn., and armed protests in Washington state have confused the enemy, state and fed. But all it'll take is a killing during an enforcement action, the "no more Waco's" unintended consequences policy kicks in. And Kattie bar the door.
