49. Always enjoy your posts. But what do we do with armor-piercing bullets?
We are organizing a Second Amendment group in Ohio: "Sportsmen United". Essentially, we are adopting your philosophy...no national gun control policy and no AWB.

But our Board is locked in a disagreement over armor piercing bullets and high capacity clips. Can states act to ban or restrict these for demonstrable law enforcement purposes?

The NRA position is, of course, no regulation at all. Some of our supporters want to adopt this position. But we are NOT the NRA. Let's face it, the NRA leaders are Republican supporters and operatives first and gun advocates second, if at all. Even if a Democratic candidate scores a 100% NRA record, the NRA leadership will still do whatever is in their power to undermine them and support the Republican in the race.

Most of our board believe states or localities should be empowered to act in these areas. After all, it is law enforcement which is leading the charge for regulation in some (but not all) jurisdictions.

After all, these bullets are designed for one thing: to pierce the Kevlar vests used by cops.

What the hell do we do with this issue?
