Brothers and sisters who own the Five-seveN; Welcome to the front lines of freedom! I have an Hon. Discharge from the Army and 18 years on the road as a state trooper. Now this bunch of gun banners are trying to get rid of your 5.7. What lies they are spreading. Contact your politicians and tell them you will be voting! I even quit the FOP. The political appointees running it arent cops, hell they probably havent seen a criminal in years! It should stand for Fraternal Order of Politicians. The 5.7 and the 50BMG are the foot in the door. I will vote and give my dues money to the NRA!

I fired the FOP about 5 years ago (they were the actual labor union representing AZ DPS at the time, although membership was "optional" if you can stand the BS from the other members and stewards). They did not represent myself, or any of the other members that I could see in any way. They were diametrically opposed to my own philisophical beliefs and morals, and actively campaigned AGAINST people's right to self-defense. They were taking $75 a month in dues and another $120 a month in "special assesments" from my check. When I called my local to find out what a "special assesment" was, at first I was hung up on several times. When I was finally able to get an answer, I was told that the assesment was being collected for political campaigning. I asked what political campaign, and was told by the president of my local that "its none of your business."
Anyway, I do not currently belong, nor will I even join another trade union. I even refuse to pay into the AFGE wich is the Federal Employees Union. I am constantly harrassed by their "stewards", but they cannot really do anything to me, as I live in a right-to-work state.
Anyways, the Brady's and their ilk can bend over backwards, stick their collective heads in their collective rear ends, and jump. Hopefully they will dissappear :)

The Brady'ites have been dealt a few blows by the pro 2A movement. They are looking to bite back hard and win a victory, lest they fall into obsolescense.
The 5.7 round has a few things going for THEM:
Not very popular -- they know they can't ban .223 or .30'06
Actively promotes it's armor penetration capabilities -- They can get good sympathy from the sheeple with the "Won't somebody think of the children" mentalities.
50BMG is sort of in the same boat.
So, what's our defense:
Make the round more popular!
Spread the truth, especially to non gun people, about what AP really is, how there are laws on the books already, and that the civilan round is not AP at all.
Not to mention than AP ammo is only deadly to cops in the hands of a CRIMINAL, who probably won't care about any laws passed against the 5.7.
I have an Alert set up on a congress watch website for H.R. 1136, when it's discussed in committee, killed, or sent for a vote, I will definitely let everyone here know.

Please dont forget the FOP's involvement in all this gun/ammo/rights banning. They are dominated by political appointee chiefs from major cities, not street cops. You can throw the IACP in there too.

i always wondred about that. every LEO i know is pro-2A because they of all people know how butt-saving guns can be, and banned weapons don't do them a lick of good when they're off-duty, which is a good portion of their lives.

I read the bill that was introduced. What does it mean to me if it passes? I mean, I own a glorious 5.7 and just want to clairify what it means to me =)
