Tilting at windmills.
After numerous failed attempts at moving the gun-control ball forward, House Democrats have trained their sights on your ammunition.
The Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act of 2015 was introduced by Rep. Bonnie Watson (D-NJ). The bill would regulate online ammunition sales much the same way online gun sales are regulated, which means that a consumer would not be able to have an online ammunition purchase delivered to his home, but rather would have to display a photo ID to an “authorized dealer” to retrieve his purchase.
I know Democrats like to pretend you can go on a gun-shopping spree and have your pile of guns delivered to your front door, but you can’t.
This is the first step in trying to ban online ammunition sales, no matter how they spin it. “The bill would stop short of imposing an outright ban on online ammunition sales, said Courtney Cochran, Watson Coleman’s communications director.” It’s just another roadblock for exercising your constitutionally guaranteed right to bear arms.
And if these gun-grabbers get their way, the government will know exactly how much ammunition you have, as the bill would require “sales of more than 1,000 rounds within five consecutive days to the U.S. attorney general if the person purchasing ammunition is not a licensed dealer.”
“Far too many times, we have seen the shocking images of unspeakable gun violence that could have been prevented,” Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D., N.J.), one of the bill’s original cosponsors, told The Hill. “Our bill to limit the online sale of ammunition is a long-overdue common sense reform that I am hopeful will spark Congress to put aside party difference and come together to help prevent such senseless tragedies.”
This ridiculous bill has no chance at all of ever passing the House, but it’s good to be reminded that gun-grabbers never rest…and neither can we.
