This is a discussion on Obama looking to ban "cop killing" ammunition within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; MILLER: The cop-killer bullet myth - Washington Times...
Is there a word that describes bullets that are (due to design) capable of penetrating soft body armor?The military uses the term “armor piercing” to refer to rounds capable of penetrating armored vehicles. The gun grabbers picked up on this terminology to describe a bullet made of hardened metals that can penetrate a soft body armor vest made of kevlar.
He can have those... just leave few hollow points for me!
Just another attempt to demonize a product so they can ban it.
"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms."
Just look at New Jersey, for crying out loud. They ban civilian use of hollow points for the same stupid and untrue reason. You can't even possess them.
Get caught with a single hollow point bullet in your car and you're going straight to jail. Even if you don't have a gun in the car.
To say, you can go ahead and ban those "evil" cop killing armor piercing bullets since I don't have a use for them, even though you know it's a bogus argument to begin with is just about the same thing as sleeping with the enemy.
To think that they won't eventually get around to banning the bullets you do use, is naive in the extreme.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
That's his way of saying i'm going to ban all ammo. All ammo can kill, maybe not instantly, but eventually from the wounds they cause.
Confuse and scare the masses to achieve thier goals. Their actions are reprehensible.
No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.
"... to-do list included a call for banning armor-piercing ammunition, or in the words Mr. Obama used in his Jan. 16 announcement, 'bullets designed to inflict maximum damage'."
Are they referring to armor-piercing, or bullets designed to inflict maximum damage? Are they so stupid that they don't know the difference?
"Mr. Biden called them 'cop-killer bullets'."
Yes. Yes he is.
There are people reading this, that voted for these morons. Now go fix what you did.
'Clinging to my guns and religion
How do they know if they are shot at a cop or someone else?
Shades of Howard Metzenbaum. Didn't they already outlaw killing cops?

MILLER: The cop-killer bullet myth
Politicians go after ammunition as a sneaky way to get your guns

Give the administration credit for its creativity. The theatrical show President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. are putting on in their effort to foist gun control on the public disguises a more subtle push to disarm America in the name of protecting cops. On Monday, Mr. Obama invited police chiefs from towns that have had mass shootings to the White House for a discussion on firearms and, more importantly, a photo opportunity.
The administration is harnessing the respect the public has for officers who keep them safe to undermine the Second Amendment. That’s why the White House’s “reduce gun violence” to-do list included a call for banning armor-piercing ammunition, or in the words Mr. Obama used in his Jan. 16 announcement, “bullets designed to inflict maximum damage.” After meeting with law enforcement last month, Mr. Biden called them “cop-killer bullets.”

As Emily points out in her article, this is a back door approach to banning firearms that shoot bullets that can penetrate X layers of Kevlar. It mostly bans rifles because they can penetrate most commercial armor vs handguns which are less likely to penetrate.

Armor-piercing ammo is already illegal in FL, so the cops here are perfectly safe. He can worry about the other 49 states now.
