Every Republican attorney general in the US rebut efforts to shut down ammunition manufacturer

| January 26, 2024

Every Republican attorney general in the United States joined in a letter to the White House. They asked Team Biden to stop their Democratic counterparts’ push to shut down the largest ammunition manufacturing plant in the country. One argument that the Democrats advanced was that this plant produces military grade ammunition. However, the Republican side argued that the ammunition produced is not what the military uses.

From Fox News:

But the Republicans say the Democrats’ letter contained a “litany of errors.” “Perhaps those States should focus more on prosecuting crime to stop mass shootings–rather than trying to stop lawful Americans’ use of guns and ammunition. Their tactic is an overt attempt to punish Americans’ exercise of their Second Amendment rights,” they wrote.

Among the list of “errors” the GOP AGs point out that their Democrat colleages allege that ammunition manufactured for “military use” does not belong in communities.

“First, the ammunition manufactured at Lake City and sold into the commercial market is not the primary rifle cartridge used by the United States military. The primary cartridge is proprietary to the Army and may not be sold commercially,” the AGs note.

“Second, while the United States military purchases and uses a particular type of ammunition, that is not determinative as to whether it is “military ammunition” that should be banned for public use,” they write.

“If the United States military using ammunition precluded that ammunition’s use by civilians, then other widely and commonly available ammunition, including 9mm and 12-gauge shotshells, would also be prohibited for public use,” they argued, adding that Supreme Court precedent “does not support such an openly artificial distinction.”

According to the state’s top prosecutors, Lake City only sells ammunition to commercial customers that is legal to manufacture, and it complies with all the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) requirements.

One more time for those hard of hearing.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING. IT ISN’T ABOUT SELF-DEFENSE. IT ISN’T ABOUT TARGET SHOOTING, HOME DEFENSE, SECURING YOUR BUSINESS, POLICING THE POPULATION OR ANYTHING ELSE THE DEMOCRATS DREAM UP..

The second amendment is about ensuring a free state. Now we all know that FJB has threatened to nuke us on several occasions and drop bombs on us with F15s. If for no other reason, that is a good enough one to make sure that we have that access. He might get a bunch of us with a nuke
or a 500 lb bomb but he won’t get everybody…. That should be reason enough to give him pause.

They are not hard of hearing.

They are intentionally, knowingly, willfully, seeking to become tyrants with absolute control over others for their own selfish ends.

They will not stop until adequate pain – up to and including mortal pain – is inflicted upon them.

Ammo up, y’all.

No one cared who we were until we; butchered a bunch of lobsterbacks; drafted and ratified a Constitution to constrain the evils of all governments; fought one of the bloodiest wars in human history to secure our rights (against ourselves, twice-ish, mind you) and those of our posterity! (in Bane voice)

Also, this country was founded by astute scholars, keen of history’s ills, who smuggled and counterfeited when a King, beholden to no one but himself, gave them no choice but to act unlawfully.

As a swamp yankee in the Nutmeg State I have to say this timeline is getting fun as I get to walk in the footsteps of those gentlemen.

One must remember, too, that those astute scholars had not just finished a hunting trip, they had just finished throwing off the yoke of an oppressive grubermint and established a Republic. It is up to us to keep it. If not us…then who? If not now…then when? Prepare…SGA and MPS is your friend.

I am more leery of a person armed with that most deadliest cartridge than I am of those armed with all of the rest, combined.

Remember the Ammo More…

Only those evil “bitter clingers” who don’t vote Democrat get deprived of ammo by this.

That is a tank or artillery projectile, not a .45 ACP bullet. The brass rifling ring gives it away. Plus .45 ACP ammo was round nosed and copper jacketed in WWII.

You don’t say? I was completely fooled by the words.

The dems goal with firearms and ammunition is not safety, other than theirs, given they want to control the population. This is and has always been about controlling the serfs, peasants, and deplorables to the benefit of the proper “ruling class” dems. They hardly even bother to hide it since obozo and later, their meat puppet, got the white house.

Misquote. However I will do you one better and post the original translation, which is more apt.

    It is very difficult for the laboring people, who have been deceived and intimidated by the reactionary ruling classes for thousands of years, to awaken to the importance of having guns in their own hands. Now that Japanese imperialist oppression and the nation-wide resistance to it have pushed our laboring people into the arena of war, Communists should prove themselves the most politically conscious leaders in this war.

Every Communist must grasp the truth, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party. Yet, having guns, we can create Party organizations, as witness the powerful Party organizations which the Eighth Route Army has created in northern China. We can also create cadres, create schools, create culture, create mass movements. Everything in Yan’an has been created by having guns. All things grow out of the barrel of a gun. According to the Marxist theory of the state, the army is the chief component of state power. Whoever wants to seize and retain state power must have a strong army. Some people ridicule us as advocates of the “omnipotence of war”. Yes, we are advocates of the omnipotence of revolutionary war; that is good, not bad, it is Marxist. The guns of the Russian Communist Party created socialism. We shall create a democratic republic. Experience in the class struggle in the era of imperialism teaches us that it is only by the power of the gun that the working class and the laboring masses can defeat the armed bourgeoisie and landlords; in this sense we may say that only with guns can the whole world be transformed. We are advocates of the abolition of war, we do not want war; but war can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.

The point here being that Mao led his nation down the logic hole of false dichotomy at the conclusion of his remarks.

You can’t get ever get rid of the gun.

Lets use Democrat logic.
-Ban guns and ammo then the is NO more gun crimes.
So…
-Ban women and minorities from the workplace then there is NO more misogyny/racism in the workplace
See how logical that is?
They can’t defeat the 2A, so they target everything that supports the 2A.
Not gonna happen sissy boys, not gonna happen.
