I am surprised this has not been all over the news.

Bigslug and Zorba tell us its a hoax.

    It's fictional ... do not worry. They are the ones who ran the Texas Ebola break out story last year.

    Its a hoax - did you see the links to the other "stories" on that site? Its an obvious spoof, plus there's nothing about it anywhere else, including CalGuns who would have been screaming bloody murder long before this.

    I was searching for holsters for the new glock and it came up twice.

    You'd think the folks responsible could go do some volunteer work somewhere, if they have a lot of time on their hands. Instead of coming up with stupid pranks like these.

    Necessary evil, that ammo can cause oil leaks in helo's causing them to foul beaches.

    It was on the Internet so it must be true.

    Diver, National Report is a spoof website. Don't believe stories from "The Onion" either -- the North Koreans do.

    There is also a link floating around to a "New York Times" article about the same thing. However, that one has a .co after the .com in the web address indicating the web domain is from Colombia...

    I checked out this mess on the web. Every link to the ban leads back to the National Report site, and NOT A SINGLE LINK lists a bill number associated with any ban on .45ACP ammunition. That's a good indication the National Report is spewing bullsqueeze, again.

    The real story here is if it wasn't on a satire site and on a legitimate news site, it would be entirely believable.

    News flash:

    .45 acp ammo will be legal, you just can't shoot it in a liberal area.
