With the Senate focused on the 2016 budget, Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) has proposed an amendment that would ban federally mandated gun control.

Lee’s amendment would ban any future gun control from lawmakers that fails to garner “two-thirds of senators” in support. It would also ban regulations issued by agencies like the ATF.

According to The Hill, Senators David Ritter (R-La) and James Inhofe (R-Okla) have also introduced their own amendment. More narrowly drawn, theirs focuses on the ATF by prohibiting that agency from “attempting to ban bullets that are primarily used by hunters and sportsmen.”

Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn) and Steven Daines (R-Mont) are also putting forth an amendment to protect antique guns that have ivory handles.

This pro-gun push comes only weeks after the ATF dropped its efforts to ban the M855 round for AR-15 rifles. Breitbart News previously reported that the ban was being pushed under the guise of eliminating an “armor piercing” round, but the ATF’s standard for ascertaining “armor piercing” was–at best–ambiguous, and–at worst–so low as to open the door to a ban on almost all centerfire hunting rounds.

On March 25, Gun Owners of America (GOA) said they believed there would be more “showdowns” on “gun-related” amendments through the end of the week than there would be “in the next 9 months combined.” GOA urged pro-Second Amendment citizens to contact their senators and urge them to support the pro-gun amendments.

Excellent - too bad they couldn't make this ban retro-active to the already existing "gun bans".

Yes! Yes! I know I'd be very happy if Mike's bill passes!
