Back door attack by BATFE on Second Amendment

The feds recently used an obscure “vaporware” Polish firearm as an excuse to outlaw the importation of cheap and plentiful Russian ammo into the United States.

The BATFE has determined the 7N6 cartridge is armor piercing and therefore illegal under the Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968 as amended in 1986.

As noted by The Bangswitch blog on Tuesday, the Russian ammo was not an issue with the federal government until the suspicious introduction of a 5.45×39 handgun on the U.S. market.

“Until one did appear, 7N6 surplus could flow freely from Russia, Ukraine and other sources. However, it would only be a matter of time before someone got the bright idea to produce a 5.45×39 pistol domestically or someone applied for a Form 6 to import one,” the blog reports.

The BATFE issued a Special Advisory memo on April 7 claiming the ammo “could be used in a commercially available handgun, the Fabryka Bronie Radom, Model Onyks 89S, 5.45×39 caliber semi-automatic pistol, which was approved for importation into the United States in November 2011.”

The federal agency’s “determination applies only to the Russian-made 7N6 ammunition analyzed, not to all 5.45×39 ammunition. Ammunition of that caliber using projectiles without a steel core would have to be independently examined to determine their importability,” the advisory states.
