This action is a result of Sig Sauer, Rock River and Bushmaster's introduction of a AR-15 handgun with a brace. The ATF initially Ok'ed the weapon as a rifle and then changed it's decision to classifying it as a handgun. Putting the green tip 5.56 in a handgun theoretically makes it capable of piercing police body armor. (Remember, we are dealing with Obama and his ilk, facts don't matter).
All handguns that shoot ammo that can pierce body armor are not to made available to the general public (banned). They might be available in other way, but I'm not sure. Anyway, there is history of the armor piercing handgun ban, so this might stick.
Gotta give O and the boys credit. They got a gun and ammo banned just by waiting for some manufacturer to get greedy.
When I saw marketing the of the AR Pistol my first reaction was that this is not going to end well.
