According to the firearms industry, Joe Biden intends to stop selling AR-15 ammo

The White House is refuting claims made by the firearms industry, which says the government is considering a policy that would sever up to 30% of the civilian supply of AR-15 ammo.

The White House may reportedly enact a new policy that would drastically reduce the amount of civilian 5.56mm ammunition, according to a report by The Blaze citing representatives from Winchester Ammunition.

WH response

The response from the White House says the claims are “way off” but officials from the National Shooting Sports Foundation calls that a lie; they say the Biden administration is targeting an ammunition plant in Missouri as part of its response to recent mass shootings.
