When I posted the NRA’s response to the proposed ATF ban, I also mentioned a Congressman had proposed legislation to eliminate the round. On the heels of that comes H.R.1365 which if passed makes it impossible to ban Green Tips. I doubt either of the bills will make it through, but it certainly may be interesting to watch this play out.
Personally, I see this all as a waste of time and effort. The round in question has not been associated with any handgun crime and I’m not actually sure why it matters in the first place if it was associated with a handgun. I think the comment someone made earlier regarding the Sig brace and pistols and not classifying as a SBR was on point and what we are witnessing is a tit for tat situation.
