We must remain vigilant or we will lose more of our Second Amendment freedom. Thomas Jefferson was 100% correct when he stated that 'eternal vigilance is the price we pay for liberty.'

I just love how the media try to spin this...

The Obama administration is pulling back a controversial proposal to ban a form of armor-piercing ammunition commonly used in AR-15 hunting rifles.
...
The National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun-rights groups assailed the proposal, and were joined by Republicans in demanding that it be withdrawn.
...
While the bullets under consideration have traditionally been used by hunters and sportsmen in AR-15 rifles, the ATF had argued the ammunition can now be used in certain handguns, giving criminals easier access.
