    You should sober up or take an English class...maybe both? So you want to know why there are "armor piercing bullets"? Because from time to time, armor needs to be pierced. Why can bullets penetrate bullet proof vests? Most vests will stop small weapons fire, but as the type of weapon goes up on the "power scale", the need for a "stronger vest" goes up as well. I'm going to guess that you are an anti-gun liberal who knows absolutely nothing about guns, or knows just enough to blabber aimlessly on the subject to your liberal friends to convince them that you're an "expert". Am I right? Before you waste any more time rambling on about something you know nothing about, try educating yourself. It does take a while to learn about firearms and ammo. Most "gun guys" (and girls) are happy to share what they know, as long as you don't act like a socialist douchenozzle that wants to outlaw everything they don't understand, and call it a "bright idea".

    The u.s. congress did that.  It was to cover up the cop killer teflon bullet fiasco.  Armor piercing will penetrate a vest at distance, a teflon coated bullet only prevents bore erosion.  Truth be known, at 20 yards a 30/30 round will penetrate a vest.

    1. You really need to improve your grammar.

    2. Armor piercing rounds aren't legal everywhere.

    3. Just because a round is armor piercing doesn't mean it can pierce all armor. Level IV body armor will stop many rounds, armor piercing or not.

    4. Armor piercing rounds just make it easier to piece bullet proof vests. A high powered rifle firing non-armor piercing rounds will easily pierce level II body armor, and a .50BMG round will go right through any mass-produced bullet proof vest.

    There is no bullet resistant vest that will stop a lead full metal jacket rifle round travelling @ rifle speeds. The vast majority of AP rounds are designed for rifle ammo used to disable vehicles and other military uses.

    Vests are designed to stop handgun ammo @ slower speeds made of lead. AP ammo for handguns is illegal by federal law.

    The "bright" idea of armor piercing rounds was intended for the destruction of military equipment...not personnel. The evil minds of a few would only think of piercing civilian body armor, not the 99.99% of the gun owning public. Just a thought but armor piercing rounds for handguns are illegal in my state. 

    Aren`t "mind altering" substances made for the public , and do they make a way to the very people who need them the least?

    Not idea.  Some people may need to price (pierce?) armor with ammo.  And besides, who can keep technology from individuals?  Unless you are a Biden voter, I can't imagine why you would think it is a good idea to give the government items that a U.S.A. citizen can not have.
