    It looks like the ATF is unilaterally attempting to ban, or rather reclassify, all 5.56mm M855/SS109 Green Tip ammunition. This ammo has been perfectly legal for years in the country. It looks like it won't be for long. Details may be seen here.

    i got an email from the NRA on this one and maybe it is not a done deal. The President said he would do whatever he could on gun control without Congress and it looks as though he was very serious about that. I don't have any weapons that shoot 5.56 ammo which I am guessing is a good thing because now you probably can't find it anywhere.

    Yes, it is not done just yet. You can still comment on the proposal up until March 16th. If you scroll to the bottom of the document in the linked PDF, you'll see contact information.

    Good news: It looks like, at least for now, the BATFE is backing off the ban. Details can be seen here.
