No M855 Ban For Now?

Seems like all the bad press the ATF recieved has caused them to back off the ammo ban attempt for the time being:
In a notice posted Tuesday afternoon, the agency said it “will not at this time seek to issue a final framework” on the proposed ammo ban. ATF took the action even before the end of its public comment period, saying it had received more than 80,000 responses, mostly opposed.
But they're still open to trying later when we're not paying as much attention:
“Although ATF endeavored to create a proposal that reflected a good faith interpretation of the law and balanced the interests of law enforcement, industry, and sportsmen, the vast majority of the comments received to date are critical of the framework, and include issues that deserve further study,” the ATF said.
The agency said after the public comment period closes Friday, it will “further evaluate the issues raised” and provide “additional open and transparent process” before proceeding with any further action. It did not specify what action that might be.
Well that 'action' will be another regulatory attempt to redefine things or an executive order outright banning them.  They will 'further evaluate' how to do it w/o generating as much press or negative reaction so they can slip it by later.
