    Banned Ammunition

    I have seen several mentions of banned ammunition in various postings and in the media announcements. Anyone know if in fact there is any such thing? Ay one time the media was talking about banned MSSAs and ammunition as if they were the same thing.

    There is a provision for the government to ban any ammunition they want.

    So far they haven't said what that includes.

    Expect AP, tracer, maybe .50cal etc to be in there though...

    maybe not a good time joking around the ammo just yet, had a cup of coffee with my lawyer (also a E-cat holder) this afternoon, they've got the order of council in their hands, in theory, they do have the authority to ban all ammo related to the prohibited firearms, and render every single still legally owned rifle useless in this country. because it is the ammo enables the firearms to FIRE. our tragedy has not ended yet.
