Breitbart News sat down with Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) earlier this week, and he explained that he put forth a rider to a Department of Justice appropriations bill to block the ATF “from banning common rifle ammunition” out of concern that “Obama’s swan song is gun control by executive order.”
On June 3, Breitbart News had reported that GOP representatives were adding riders to the bill to deny funding and block the DOJ and ATF from following through on backdoor gun controls under consideration at the time. Massie now explains:
One of the doors that we sought to shut with this appropriations bill was his tendency to ban ammunition. He did it in 2014 by banning 7N6 ammunition (5.45 x 39), which not many people shot, and therefore, not many people reacted to the ban. And using the same logic they used to ban 7N6, they announced that they were going to ban the popular .223 round, otherwise known as “green tip” ammunition–the M855 round.
