So what are the feds going to do about the hunting rounds that can also pierce armor? They won't be satisfied until everyone is completely disarmed. Will that ever happen? It will certainly be fun if they ever try it.

According to the article, there's a federal law passed in 1986 that prohibits the manufacture, importation, and sale of so-called “armor piercing” handgun projectiles.

If some types of hunting ammo meet the definition the ATF is interpreting the law to mandate, I would assume they'll go after those types of ammo too.

At least until the current administration is replaced by one that doesn't interpret the law in that way, or the law is changed / repealed.
