After an unprecedented response, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms has temporarily pulled its proposal to ban common AR-15 M855 "green tip" ammunition. More than 80,000 people have commented on the proposal to ban certain types of 5.56 mm, or .223 caliber ammunition since the agency announced its proposal last month. An ATF spokeswoman, Ginger Colbrun, said the vast majority of comments were critical of the proposal.
Objections also came from 291 members of Congress - majorities of both the House and Senate.
KVSH Radio discussed the issue with Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, on Tuesday March 10th on the Comment Program.
