Mr Obama's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is charged with banning M855 military ball ammunition. This type of ammunition is usually found on the civilian market as military surplus. There is no record of this sort of ammunition being used in crime. Since the threat doesn't exist, the ban won't even give special protection to law enforcement officers.

somehow a threat to ourselves. Leave us alone, Mr Obama -- we are
acting like free people.
