Today, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) announced the agency will not proceed with a proposed rule to ban a popular form of rifle ammunition. This came as a direct result of the US House challenging the Bureau’s efforts.
Many members of Congress played a role, one of the most vocal in this effort was Kevin Brady. He told US Daily Review that “I, and hundreds of my Capitol Hill colleagues, stood up against this assault on the Second Amendment,” said U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady of Texas in defending the ammunition traditionally used by hunters and sportsmen. “The ATF listened to us and the 80,000 Americans who took the time to comment on this wrongheaded proposal that revealed just how far this White House was willing to go to attack our constitutional rights. This was way out of step with reality and I’m glad it’s over.”
