Vitter, Scalise Urge ATF to Rescind Ammunition Reclassification

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) and U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) are urging the Obama Administration to withdraw their reclassification of a popular type of ammunition, which will make it much harder for consumers to purchase that ammunition and diminish gun owners’ Second Amendment rights. Vitter and Scalise are challenging the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) proposal to classify M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.”
