Supporters of Milley’s plan point out that they could easily get permission to stock up on hollow points instead of the default civilian round.
I think they have this bit a little backward. And displaying ignorance.
I don't know of any civilians, LE or private citizen, using FMJ for serious social purposes outside jurisdictions that ban their citizens from using effective ammo (NJ IIRC?)
And while I know there have been "findings" that allow the use of HPs for police functions and for accuracy under international treaties, I believe the default military bullet profile is still FMJ.
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".

The only firearm where I use FMJ is in my .32ACP. I think it might penetrate further than the JHP when hitting center of mass/sternum or other thick bone structures. It's also the only thing available locally should I be in a "need it now" situation.
Remember, folks, you can't spell "douche" without "Che."
