Democrat lawmakers have bill to end online ammo sales to ‘regular’ Americans

The stupidity of Democrats is rearing its ugly head once again, with another no brainer.  How is punishing law abiding citizens going to stop criminals or crazies who want to cause bodily harm?  Two Democrats have just come up with a bill 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. Why not just do the background checks instead?  But we can’t do that as it makes sense.  And Democrats anyway are anti gun to begin with.


This  new proposal was just introduced 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.  And there are also 3 other provisions of the bill:  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.

“If someone wants to purchase deadly ammunition, they should have to come  face to face with the seller,” Lautenberg said. “It’s one thing to buy a pair of  shoes online, but it should take more than a click of the mouse to amass  thousands of rounds of ammunition.”

He also said the legislation is a “common sense” effort to flag suspicious  activity and help prevent such sales to “a terrorist or the  next would-be mass murderer.”

So in typical Democrat thinking, they are trying to make it sound like all gun owners are going to be mass murderers.  We also know that New York Mayor Bloomberg is for the new bill, as his is also anti-gun.

“We should be having a great debate among two accomplished leaders and the  people they’re asking to hire them,” said Bloomberg, co-founder of Mayors  Against Illegal Guns. “If the presidential candidates won’t act, others will,   including Senator Lautenberg and Congresswoman McCarthy.”  Fox News

Congress passed legislation in 1994 that included a ban on such devices but it  expired in 2004.  Since then, the largely-Democratic effort to reinstate  the ban, which also limited the sale of so-called assault weapons, has garnered  little support in Congress.

But it’s highly unlikey this bill will pass in either the House or Senate, since Republicans control the House, and Sen Harry Reid said there’s no time to discuss more gun control.  Meanwhile Romney has said, he doesn’t believe that America needs more gun laws.  White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Monday he didn’t know  whether the president has seen the new legislation but the administration would  track it and similar proposals in Congress.

Lautenberg and McCarthy were joined Monday by Dan Gross, president of the Brady  Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

    He had booby traps set with enough gasoline to wipe out the entire building so are we going to start putting markers in gas and keeping track of who buys how much and when. Guns are just much easier to demonize.

    They want this country to be like most in europe, unarmed…..yet they refuse to see that criminals will always get guns, or whatever they plan on banning next, if they so wish, and will continue to do their dastardly deeds. And the law abiding citizen each day, gets more of their rights taken away. Obama says he isn’t for more gun control, yet he just said congress must work together, so in his sneaky roundabout way, he wants a ban on all guns…..remember he is still pushing for that treaty with the UN giving them control over all.
