    Typical government in action. Make a decision then jump through the hoops to make it look legal. The general public won't know the difference.

    "thousands of people in possession of AR-15 green tip ammunition have essentially been turned into felons overnight. "


    This cannot be accurate. I am not an attorney but my understanding of the law is they cannot charge you for having something that was legal when you bought it. They either have to offer to pay you for it at market value or grandfather it in and there would have to be grace periods

    I don't think they bought back any magazines in New York or Connecticut.

    I have a whole bunch of M855 that does not have green tips, If you took it out of the boxes and dumped it in a ammo can the only way you could identify it would be to pull a bullet and saw it in half.

    The whole thing is asinine, There has to be millions of rounds of M855 in private hands

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 1986 law prevented private parties from importing or manufacturing and prevented licensed manufacturers and importers from selling to anyone except the government, unless for export.

    So, what we got is what we got, whenever they drop the other shoe, which may have already been dropped?

    To be a fly on the wall at the ATK plant office.

    LOL

    I maintain that LAP on the PMC X-TAC box stands for "Legal And Popular"

    Mother bubblegumming bubblegummers! The whole bubblegumming lot of em. That includes our republican "friends" who, from what I have seen, ain't done squat to hold up their end of the deal.

    Sorry for all the bubblegumming, just had to vent.
    I am going to go crack a 9% double IPA, and try to relax.:confused:

    That's the 1st thing I did to make sure I didn't get 62 gr BS bullets instead of steel core. I would have been hot considering I paid $89 for 500.............

    I was thinking Acetone should remove it. Dampen a rag with it and wipe away ?
