‘You’re left holding your gun making pew-pew noises to defend yourself’
The federal bureaucracy, in the form of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, recently announced a ban on ammunition used in AR-15 rifles, which are among the most common firearms in America, but then suddenly backed off.
So breathe a sigh of relief and move on?
Not if you like the Second Amendment, according to a National Rifle Association commentator.
Colion Noir, a practicing attorney who graduated from the University of Houston, has been described by the Los Angeles Times as someone who doesn’t fit the stereotype of NRA members: “Old, fat, white guys.”
“At 29, he’s not old. Nor is he fat – he’s slender and stylishly dressed with sneakers made by Prada. He’s also not white.”
And he’s not shy about the Second Amendment, posting a recent NRA commentary on the ATF plan to banish bullets for the AR-15 and then pull back.
“Make no mistake, that so-called ammo ban, proposed by the ATF that they’re now shelving is nothing more than a gun ban by another name. It’s semantic drug smuggling, if you ask me. Take a kilo of gun ban, wrap it in officer safety Saran wrap and smuggle it in the rental car of common-sense gun legislation — and bingo, you have backdoor gun control.”
And he warned the ammo-ban proposal will return.
“If you’re still floating on the whole Obama-doesn’t-want-to-ban-guns cloud of naivety, think about it like this. When you get locked out of your house, what’s the first thing you think to do – try the back door.
“It takes nothing more than a two-second Google search to hear quotes of President Obama wanting to ban all AR-15s. And because his administration couldn’t get that ban through the front door of Congress, they tried to get it through the back door with this ammo ban,” he said.
