According to, the city of San Francisco has unanimously voted to ban “military grade” ammunition (of course we know the military doesn’t use hollow points).

The measure would also require vendors to notify law enforcement if someone bought more than 500 rounds of ammo at a time. Buying that brick of .22? Cops are going to know.

Anyone in violation of the new hollow point law will face up to 6 months in jail.

Despite what the media says the military does not use hollow points in accordance with international rules for war.

Hollow points are generally considered safer to use for self defense because they are less likely to over penetrate their target and hit other, unintended targets. I wonder if the city of San Francisco is prepared for the first law suit when someone is hurt by a FMJ bullet that over penetrates its target.
