Safe Mode: On
Bill to Restrict Ammunition Sales in U.S.

Two Capitol Hill Democrats announced legislation Monday that would effectively end online and mail-order sales of ammunition following the recent massacre in Colorado, where police say the shooter bought more than 6,000 rounds online without proving identification.

The proposal was introduced outside New York City Hall by New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg and New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, and it marked the latest development in the gun control debate rekindled after 12 people were killed and 58 others wounded in the July 20 shooting inside
an Aurora, Colo., movie theater.

The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act would require buyers who are not dealers to present a photo ID at the time of purchase, “effectively banning the online or mail-order purchase of ammo by regular citizens,” according to a summary of the legislation provided to Fox News.

The three other provisions are: Only licensed dealers can sell ammunition, the licensed dealers must keep records of ammunition sales and they must report the sales of more than 1,000 rounds to an unlicensed buyer within five business days.

      I don't know as that makes them traitors, but it does make them a clear a present danger to the constitutional oath that they took

      If they are a danger to the Constitution they are traitors in my book. @ PeckerHead, yes, defending ones constitutional rights does make him American. You're a joke threatening him with legal action LOL. His words could simply be interpreted as what he would like to see happen.

  • So instead the next crazy guy can just go into Walmart prior to a shooting up a cinema and ask for 900 rounds?

    As with any leftist liberals ideas, they just lack that common sense you expect from an elected official. I probably trust the garbage collector more than the people in power. At least he gets the job done and does not try to make my life any harder.
    This makes no sense what so ever.

  • Why do they hate the disabled and other shut ins? Why do they hate people who live in rural areas, such as Natives and Eskimos? Leave it to the racist democratic party to discriminate against the disabled and Native Americans, want to take away their rights, and make them more likely to become victims of crime.

    And blaming guns for crime is like blaming spoons for making Rosie O'Donnel fat.

  • jeez
    now they are blaming the bullets

    politicians just love to create MORE rules to "solve" problems.

    Yet, they never actually solve the underlying problem of identifying/ helping mentally sick individuals.

  • The shooter provided a name with credit card and an address to send the ammo to; how is that not providing identification? And what good would identification have done to prevent anything? And how is the purchase of 6k rounds an issue when he only needed a couple of hundred rounds or less? He could have easily purchased a few hundred in a day, or over time, from local retail outlets. The funny part is, this threat of legislation against ammo will push ammo sales and stock piles to all time highs More..

  • Dumbest law ever. That will just make people drive around more going to more stores to stay under the limit. I just ordered more ammo off line, and had I purchased it at the range, I would have spent almost $50 more. It's like Sam's Club, buy in bulk and save a ton.

    If this, why don't the global warming nuts ban all gas tanks over 10 gallons. That will surely restrict how much greenhouse gases a single vehicle emits... right!!?!?!?? WRONG!!!

  • I don't see how this could possibly be constitutional.There are warning on most on line ammo dealers telling potential customers the current restrictions on ammo sales.So if someone buys it knowing they are prohibited from possessing ammunition it is they,the customer that is breaking the law.How can a firearms dealer possibly know he's selling to someone that is prohibited.Illegals are already buying firearms with fake ID.Are these two ass-hats really that stupid?

  • I've never been ID'd for buying ammo. If I had, it would've only been to verify I was of age.

    Even if this bill passes, how would it possibly prevent something like this (Aurora Shooting) from happening? Sadly, it's just another way for politicians to gain a little election leverage.

  • This will:

    1) Drive up the price of ammo
    2) Create a HUGE black market for ammunition
    3) Drive regular shooters to reload their own
    4) Create more smuggling of surplus military ammo from China and Russia
