In 1982 NBC ran a “Prime Time” special on Teflon-coated bullets labeling them “armored piercing” bullets. Their “expert” claimed that the Teflon increased the bullet's penetration power by 20%. The news show argued that these bullets were a danger to police. In this special, NBC created the term “cop killer” for all armor-piercing bullets.
In August of 1986 HR 3132 — PL 99-408 was passed. The new law would ban any handgun round that’s core consisted of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium.
Libertarian aerospace engineer, Austin Jones, didn't like the fact that the government had access to the armored piercing handguns rounds, but the government prevented the general public from owning them.
