I've avoided posting political and anti-gun stuff over here lately, but this one is just funnny.

Effort mounted to strip Border Patrol of hollow-point bullets

A campaign aiming to change controversial ammunition used by the U.S. Border Patrol is under way.

Critics of "controlled expansion bullets" contend the hollow-point bullets - used by the Border Patrol since the 1970s - are unnecessarily lethal.

When a Washington, D.C.-based legal support group learned that the agency requested a five-year supply of the rounds, it saw an opportunity to attack their use.

"We don't think that (hollow points) are necessary, they cause massive injuries," said Donald Kerwin, executive director of Washington, D.C.,- based Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. "We were shocked to find that they're standard issue for the Border Patrol and other immigration agents."

blink. blink.

Ok, that's it; I must have fallen down the rabbit hole. Do these people advocate smaller wheels on cars to reduce the maximum vehicle speed, too???
