Breaking: Latest ATF Surprise Could Drive Ammo Prices Through the Roof

If you can't ban guns one way, look for alternate ways to do it!


Breaking: Latest ATF Surprise Could Drive Ammo Prices Through the Roof

As reported on Ammoland, a sudden ATF rule change promulgated entirely without warning in a newsletter has reclassified a critical component of smokeless powder as a “high explosive”.
The problem is that there are very strict rules governing the storage and transport of high explosives, and the ammunition supply chain is totally unprepared to suddenly comply with those rules.
Overhauling the ammunition supply chain to accommodate those rules will be a long and expensive process, which would be bad enough news for ammo prices. But the knockout blow is the fact that the industry was given no warning and zero grace period, so they’re just screwed, because as of yesterday they’re now in sudden violation of federal law.

I wonder how they are twisting the definition to classify a combustible as "high explosive". Obviously they've never seen it burn, and that's all it does.

OK, so ping pong balls are high explosive also. Seriously, same substance.

The sh*tstorm that was gathering apparently had them back off for now, all bets are off if Hillary gets elected.

This is why Trump needs full Republican support and tone it down some. I by no means say Trump is our best choice for POTUS but I will by all means say Hillary would be one of the worst. With voter fraud combined with "low information voters" Im worried she is headed to office. Trump alienated too many people and its going to come down to him needing to win all the "battleground states" to win. My state OH. is one he must win. (Should need an aptitude test to be allowed to vote, there is allot at stake and many voters shouldn't even be allowed to vote due to not having a clue what they are doing, random interviews of voters show how many are...)

Glad the ATF backed off... for now...

We must support every 2nd ammendment supporting politician in all races. If Hillary got in office we must have control the House of Representatives and/or Senate.

Not trying to hijack the thread into a political debate but we all know our 2nd ammendment rights are at stake during any major election. Get the word out make sure Republicans you know are voting, give them rides if need be AND ignire exit polls (that is a story in itself!) etc. Until voting ends fight by getting every vote you can!

God Bless America!

But you did hijack the thread and make it political. I'm sure there are better places than this thread to make your political statement,such as in the Off Topic Lounge(hint,hint).

The epitome of "low information". By your own standard, maybe you should consider sitting this one out.

The rights and freedoms of all citizens must be respected.

Unfortunately politics and 2A are more intertwined in this election than any in recent memory. The SCOTUS appointments will be huge for 2A as well as the political ideology for a generation.
