JOPLIN, MO.--- Congressman Billy Long says he had gotten a lot of feedback from voters who were opposed to the ban. At issue was a proposal from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to prohibit armor piercing rounds used in AR-15 rifles.  
"Decided they couldn't ban the gun, so they tried to ban the ammo. But the people spoke out in loud and long numbers and said, 'we don't think we're going to let you do that.' So I was glad the ATF backed off on this," said Billy Long, Missouri Congressman. 
The ATF called off the proposal after getting feedback from nearly 300 members of Congress and 800,000 people.
