The ATF seems to think that they can legislate safety for law enforcement officers by banning a widely available type of ammunition, commonly referred to as Green Tip or NATO.

What the ATF and Attorney General don’t seem to care much about is the quality of the body armor officers have access to. There are rubber like ceramic products, weighing a fraction of the steel plates, which can stop a bullet (projectile) regardless of the composition of the metals. Several new products where available at Shot Show 2015.

ATF will carefully consider all comments, as appropriate, received on or before March 16, 2015, and will give comments received after that date the same consideration if it is practical to do so, but assurance of consideration cannot be given except as to comments received on or before March 16, 2015. ATF will not acknowledge receipt of comments.

Submit comments in any of three ways (but do not submit the same comments multiple times or by more than one method):  ATF website: [email protected] Follow the instructions for submitting comments.  Fax: (202) 648-9741.  Mail: Denise Brown, Mailstop 6N-602, Office of Regulatory Affairs, Enforcement Programs and Services, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, 99 New York Avenue, NE, Washington, DC 20226: ATTN: AP Ammo Comments.
